Electoral Commission of Zambia(ECZ)spokesperson Cris Akufuna says the commission is following up the matter in which the Vice President Guy Scott allegedly conducted a political campaign rally in Lukulu West during the filing in of nominations of candidates for the by-election in the area.

Mr. Akufuna has explained that it would be an abrogation of the Electoral Conduct of Conduct if any political party in the country conducts a political campaign before the filing of nominations of candidates is done.

Speaking in an interview with Qfm news, Mr. Akufuna has noted that under the Electoral Law, political campaigns only commence at 15:00hours after all political parties have filed in nominations.

He has also reiterated the need for all participating political parties to conduct peaceful campaigns in Kapiri Mposhi and Lukulu West constituencies.

  1. IS ECZ ALSO SUPPOSED TO SEEK PERMISSION FROM SATA BEFORE AN INVESTIGATION CAN BE CARRIED OUT? IF THIS IS THE CASE THEN THE WHOLE MATTER WILL GO NOWHERE. THE PF DON’T RESPECT ANY LAW; THEY THRIVE ON BREAKING THE LAW. GAY SCOTT WAS AWARE THAT IT WAS ILLEGAL FOR HIM TO HOLD A RALLY BUT DEFIED THE LAW WITH IMPUNITY BECAUSE HE BELONGS TO THE RULING CLASS. WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE THIS GOVERNMENT. SUCH A GOVT CANNOT PROTECT ITS CITIZENS, INSTEAD, IT ABUSES THEM.

  2. The other day it was Sylvia Masebo breaking the electoral law in Kapiri Mposhi and she was “strongly” admonished by ECZ. This time it is Guy Scott. What will ECZ do to Guy Scott or to PF as a party? This level of impunity is not healthy for the young Zambian democracy. We can’t have people raping our laws day in day out and there is no ****shment to them. Incumbency has its limits.

  3. We have not forgotten how President Sata when he was in opposition ‘refused’ to give way to the Vice President George Kunda SC (deceased) motorcade and people thought this made him a hero we shall do the same to Scott…an eye for an eye

  4. People want to hear more from the govt becoz the promises made during 2011 compaigns are bearing fruit.so when they saw scott they felt a saviour was with them and wanted him to talk to them.it was not a rally for compaign but he just stopd to greet them.shame on you fault finders.

  5. If you can’t beat them join them….everyone knows that Zambians are cowards. last time I was just checking through education/professional qualifications for these guys. You will be shocked!!!!!!!!!. Diplomas from post news paper andTimes of Zambia. No wonder these chaps hate UNZA so much. They all want to hide behind politics,,, hopeless. What about Pigs issue, when GYSHOT killed all his pigs and demanded for compensation,1992, yellow maize issue…….hahahaha mane!!!!!! Let’s go Zambia….some refused to interviewed by ACC and even brought a truck full of kapoya. By the way, why is ichibemba so common used by these Kapoya’s. I dont how if they undestand SAS/Stat logistic procedure guide or SPSS/Genstat/
    1+1=11. campaign before everyone else uses SAS/STAT.
    OUR CRY! PLSE law…

  6. MMDs ,who do u think u can fool ?Do u think we have forgotten yo satanic behavior? No wonder u are going into oblivion so fast. Fault finders who nothing to say. We know who is better than the other.

  7. Was the assembly lawful? Did he get the permit before and from who? What was the reaction of the law enforcers (the police)?

  8. # 12 OSMORE , YES we know! It is MMD. PF will never inspire level headed minds. It is for gullible and attention seekers.
