Mr. Muleya told the DVEC members that eighty – six (86) people applied to conduct the voter registration education exercise and only ten (10) people were required for the exercise hence the need for the committee to engage dedicated people who will conduct a massive sensitization on the importance of registering as voters and participate in the elections.
