Security wings in Shangombo District of Western Province have intercepted 370 suspected Angolan refugees who were being ferried by a named UPND official to help them obtain National Registration Cards.

ZNBC reports that the move was allegedly meant to enable the Angolan refugees register as voters and participate in the forth coming August 11th General Elections.

And NRC registrar at Shangombo District council has been suspended to assist with investigations into the matter.

Western province minister Poniso Njeulu who confirmed the development to ZNBC news said the refugees are from Kashisha Kalenuka refugee settlement camp.

Mr Njeulu said the suspended official is said to have received an inducement of K8,000 and 5 animals to facilitate the issuance NRCs to the refugees.

He said the provincial administration office has also demanded that the issuance of NRCs at the district council be suspended pending an independent investigation.

The Minister said the said security wings have also impounded a truck and a Noah mini bus which was being used to transport the refugees.

    • UPND is a party of amateurs. All your tricks will be laid bare by UPND Vice President GBM. The guy is PF and he knows HH is not picking him as running mate. So if you want to know who is spilling your secrets look no farther!

    • IT’S A SHAME HOW ZAMBIANS EASILY SELL THEIR COUNTRY TO FOREIGNERS. THERE’S NO ONE IN THE WESTERN PART OF THE WORLD WHO CAN BE BRIBED IN ORDER FOR A FOREIGNER TO GET A PASSPORT. BUT, ZAMBIANS DON’T RESPECT THEIR SOVEREIGNTY. SIMPLY, PUT ZAMBIANS ARE VERY SIMPLISTIC. THEY DON’T HAVE THE BRAINS WHEN IT COMES TO SELLING THEIR COUNTRY TO FOREIGNERS. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, IT IS EVEN THE HIGHLY EDUCATED ZAMBIANS PEOPLE EXPECT TO BE PRINCIPLED WHO ARE CORRUPT. THEY ARE MAINLY IN OFFICES LOOTING. MAYBE, THAT’S WHY WOMEN SHOULD DOMINATE LEADERSHIP POSITIONS BECAUSE MOST MAIN IN ZAMBIA ARE SIMPLY !D!OTS. WOMEN WILL MAKE A CHANGE. THIS GOES EVEN WITH LAND ISSUANCE.

    • Maybe Zambians think using ********. Voters and NRC cards are always in the hands of government not the opposition party. UPND has got no equipment to use in making NRCs come you chickens.

    • Without providing the name of the official this may just be propaganda. If the name can be provided credibility is needed for both ruling and opposition parties and ECZ needs to step in and provide controls and measures.

    • I think you need to accept that UPND is not a ‘clean’ party just like PF. They are both dirty. If you have chosen to support them, well and good, but acknowledge that it is not an unsoiled party.

    • The PF scum has now been laid bare thats why PF miions are trying to pre-empty it.

      UPND is popular in western province and therefore does not need to induce voters to vote UPND. It illogical to think that UPND can do that, when its the government in charge of issuing NRC.

      PF is the one panicking in Western province and inducing voters from amongst refugees by selling citizeniship in exchange for votes.

      The truth about who is responsible will come out soon. and PF ‘s butt will be exposed.

      VIVA UPND and THE HH TEAM.

  1. So both PF AND UPND are playing tricks with the registration process. The same two parties are violent. None of their leaders can be trusted. Each one is serving an unknown master. I think let’s vote for Nawakwi, there is no cheating or violence with FDD.

    • I agree FDD is making a lot of sense.Its the only party conducting issue based campaigns. Both PF and UPND are trying to outdo each other in flouting the electoral laws. However, Antonio Mwanza, the party spoke person for FDD is annoying and disrespectful. The stupid guy is annoying he comments on anything without showing proper understanding.

    • @ Nzelu

      I always enjoy reading your comments, even if I do not agree with your obsession with “one person party”.
      However, can you PLEASE clarify your position towards PF and HE President Lungu in case Ms. Nawakwi accepts to become running mate to HE President Lungu in next election.
      Thank you

    • mmmm! ‘home alone’ miyanda with nawakwi?
      can’t never.
      miyanda is a rigid and selfish leader.
      he once tricked fdd and those 20 mmd ‘rebel’ mps who fought chil;uba’s third term bid.

  2. UPND always has had a stench of Chiluba’s let 90s MMD. The MMD without the founding members. PF feels more like the first MMD with Lungu at the helm. If he can rid us of Kambwili, all will be well.

  3. This shows that we need to clean up the registration process and make it foul proof! An NRC is about citizenship and if we are not careful we shall bring war on ourselves. Look at what had (has) happened to Cote d”ivoire where immigrants of all sorts got the citizenship of the country! To those who are disputing that this could be true they should understand accusations have long be leveled against PF registering Congolese,Malawians and Tanzanian in their strongholds. What can stop UPND doing the same in their area to increase the numbers? Remember,under 50% + 1 things are quite tough and each party will be fighting to maximize votes in their strongholds.

  4. it was also mentioned that PF was registering Congolese as voters. Same difference so let there be fair play and both parties should face the same music.

  6. Lets stop being economical with the truth. Neither of the two top parties can produce a clean slate when it comes to nasty/ violent (political) election matters. As such, those intercepted this time around should stop beating a hasty retreat even before thorough investigation have been concluded.

  9. With or without Refugees,UPND is headed for a heavy defeat.Revolutions start from the capital Lusaka and Copperbelt,not from any part of the nation. Us in Lusaka and Copperbelt,we re still behind PF.The only r
    evolution we know is on ZWD and in the minds of UPND vuvuvelas like Coillard,Namanda,docota proud,lukulu voice,misheck,mwinga chilungamo who re calling radio stations every minute everyday week in week out trying to sell Mr Kalusa Bitterman!!!ECL nafuti nafuti nafuti!!!

  10. No no no no you got to understand. Chaps in the area vote on a more biased pattern. They vote like crazy
    E.g One constituency: UPND 199 000 PF 20 MMD 1 ULP 0 FDD 0 GP -0 Total registered voters 220 000, Total votes cast 220, 000 Spoiled 0 Scratched 0 Extras 30 000
    Mmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!! bane? Even when it is consistent that in others constituencies there is a systematic change in the numbers due to of deaths, movements and other commitments. Their numbers never change. Watch this space…

    Iwe Hetch Hetch(HH), the voting pattern in SP will never change any sooner, so I know how not to give you my vote.

    • Open your eyes and see. Then you will understand. Remember in January 2015, the results were close and it had to take Mambilima to tilt it the other way. What more now with a highly disgruntled nation. PF has tried to blindfold the opposition using the PoA. Now you should understand why PF is so desperate about the reality. PF is gone my brother, even with its dirty machinations.

  13. This just nonsense and Pf is trying disguise the issue of Mwale ferrying Malawians to register as voters in Chipata. Why is Pf giving opposition so much credit? There is no way UPND can do that if all security wings are functional. Edgar Lungu and the entire Pf are a waste of space. Anybody other than these bunch of civilised id10ts can do better in running the affairs of the country. Edgar a Lungu makes the likes of Chilufya Tayali and Frank Bwalya sound more intelligent than he is. Now that’s agony!

  14. It is clear all these tactics are engineered by the PF. They engineer violence in the name of UPND. They are now posing as UPND to deceive the nation about a ‘known UPND official ferrying refugees’. How is this possible when its government that is responsible for refugee camps and the issuance of NRCs. The guy who is suspended is one of their own. That is why the news is quickly ferried to ZNBC for a broadcast. The entire PF is having sleepless nights over UPND; unfortunately, where there is determination for change, no dirty schemes can stop it.

  15. The biggest mistake PF is making is assuming that UPND is a party for the Tongas….absolute error! if that was the case, Sunday Chanda, Bwalya and even EL would not be talking about UPND day and night.

  18. UPND should be investigated well.Even last year elections these chaps were jst making ballot papers.Never trust such pipo in southern.The turn out was 70% in southern province whereas the rest of the country 27-30%.
    PF should find good monitors otherwise it will be 100% turn out in southern province for UPND.let PF send pipo to monitor elections in southern who are trusted otherwise trusting chuundu chaitwa pipo will be an embarrassment to lungu.These chaps we’ll be making ballot papers coz almost everyone in southern province is UPND except a few pipo in towns.Ba Lungu plan well otherwise southern province will shock you n PF if not monitored.They are planing to come up with UPND polling agents and monitors who gonna pretend to be PF.

  20. Is it a wonder then that in January 2015 Presidential bye-elections, “voter turn out” was over 100%? My advise to PF is that election malpractices as shown by UPND in January 2015 should not be allowed now and in the future! PF is in Government and they should deal with these criminals ruthlessly and without mercy.
    I hope the relevant authorities have take this very seriously as a breach of electoral conduct.
    HH is so desperate that if he is left unchecked, he can do anything to sell this country to enemies. The recent action by HH must open the eyes of genuine Zambians, the man is has everything to lose this 11 August 2016 elections and will do anything to get to State House.
    Our systems both at Electoral Commission Of Zambia and other relevant agencies must step up and ensure the…
