Kabompo receives 11 generators for voter registration

Rural News Kabompo receives 11 generators for voter registration

Kabompo District voter registration office has received 11 brand new Honda portable generators to replace the 11 Smartmatic portable gasoline generators which have been constantly breaking down causing interruptions of voter registration in the area.

Acting District Voter Registration Officer, Joyce Musachi confirmed the new development in an interview with ZANIS in Kabompo today.

Ms. Musachi said that the Honda generators were brought to Kabompo yesterday by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ).

She said all the 11 Smartmatic gasoline generators have been withdrawn from registration centers and would be taken back to Lusaka by the ECZ soon.

Meanwhile, Ms. Musachi said the turnout is still low in Kabompo as only 1,175 new voters have been registered so far while 959 have made replacements of their voter’s cards.

However she expressed optimism that with the arrival of the new generators the exercise would go on smoothly now and more people be registered than in the past since the exercise begun on June 21, this year.

  1. A Smart logistics person would send the returnable products on the same truck per delivery.
    If that truck was not available for a return trip then they chose a poor transporting company or the manager of ECZ maintenance section is hiding something about the old generators.

    Why not get them back to be serviced ASAP as they are MUCH needed in other places around the country.
    What happens after the Honda’s breakdown?

    Zambia no wonder there has only been little uptake on new voter cards and registrations.
    What a way to win an election…Shun to population to not Vote.
