The ruling Patriotic Front has dismissed as nonsense reports that it has been mobilising Malawian nationals to register as voters in the just ended mobile voter registration exercise in Eastern province.
PF Central Committee Chairperson for Information Frank Bwalya says such reports are only a perpetration of political parties that have foreseen their defeat in the 2016 general election.
Father Bwalya suspects that the opposition UPND which earlier alleged that the ruling PF is using Israelis to rig the 2016 general election are the ones behind such media reports.
He says there is no way the ruling PF can encourage foreign nationals to register as voters when it has been winning elections in the country without the involvement of foreigners.
Father Bwalya has also distanced the ruling party from the attacks on two journalists who were investigating the same reports of Malawian nationals allegedly registering as Zambian Voters.
He states that the people who attacked the two investigative journalists could have been those that were angered for being referred to as Malawians when in fact they are Zambians.
