Heavy rains are hampering the smooth delivery of election materials and polling staff in Malole Constituency of Mungwi district in the Northern province.

Mungwi District Electoral Officer Gladys Lilanda has told ZANIS in Mungwi today that Chambeshi and Nkomena areas were severely flooded making it difficult to deliver the materials and polling staff.

She said four vehicles sent to the two areas got stuck yesterday and were only retrieved this morning.

Mrs. Lilanda said however that despite the challenges her office was determined to ensure that the election materials and poling staff were delivered to all the 83 polling stations by the end of today in readiness for voting tomorrow.

She has appealed to the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to send a chopper to the district to assist airlift the poling materials to Kawanga area which is practically impossible to access by road.

Malole constituency has a total number of 83 polling stations.

Zambia goes to the polls tomorrow to elect the country’s Sixth Republican President following the death of President Michael Sata last October.

  1. ECZ,COMMON ON!DURING CAMPAIGNS SEVERAL PARTIES WERE VERY ORGANIZED.THEY USED CHOPPERS TO REACH THE WHOLE OF ZAMBIA.HIRE THE CHOPPERS PLEASE AND AVOID USING ZAF CHOPPERS.

    THAT IS ALREADY A RECIPE FOR RIGGING.
