  1. Poor planing as the rains will definitely affect this critical national programme.The program must have started strategically in either May or June as common sense has it that next year will be a sensitive year for any issue related to registration of voters by ECZ! In any case,one would be tempted to ask as to when will the verification process of registered voters be done then?

Chris & his cronies have outlived their usefulness hence must be retired or taken else where for national interest sake! They are taking Zambian voters for granted & are also taking ECZ as their own institution!

  3. But 20 000 new voters have already been registered in Muchinga and the Northern provinces, according to the news! What goes?
