Zambia Police officers
The Zambia Police service says it is still investigating reports alleging that some foreigners were registered as voters ahead of the August 11, general Election.

Police Deputy Spokesperson Rae Hamoomga says the probe is underway and that the public will be informed of the findings.

Mr Hamoonga said the UPND have launched formal a complaint at Lusaka’s Woodlands Police Station.

And Lusaka Province Police Commissioner Nelson Phiri says the police has asked the opposition to furnish them with evidence suggesting that some foreigners have registered as voters.

Mr Phiri has told ZNBC news that it is now a week since the police requested evidence but so far nothing has been forthcoming.

He confirmed that police received the complaint from former Mazabuka Central Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo and former Chongwe Mp Silvia Masebo alleging that the Electoral Commission of Zambia had registered foreigners as voters.

On Thursday ECZ Chairperson Essau Chulu during a stakeholders meeting said the Commission is aware of the complaint of some foreigners allegedly registering as voters and that he will only issue a comment once police complete their investigations.

  1. Police must reconcile their statements. One says they are investigating after a complaint was launched while the Lusaka Commissioner is waiting for evidence from the opposition.
    And if the complainant is going to provide evidence what will there be to investigate. The post said they had evidence and in fact they displayed it on the front page of their Newspaper, yet the police make no mention of having visited the Post to acquire that evidence.

    • Iwe @Armchair… when some one complains they must give hints of who was involved and how. The information that was in the post can be used but they want to get some leads from the complainant rather than reacting to newspaper reports as if it is the Post which went to report! If say Mr.A has stolen something belonging to me I should provide leads to show how what Mr.A has is to be taken as stolen property belonging to me!The police cannot start running around in all registers with out leads!Gary should take those examples to the police and then they will to ECZ to check and verify – in case submitted leads “evidence” may even be fabricated to create discontent!

  2. Such governance am beginning to believe is what breeds leaders like Julius Malema of SA! Those given the responsibility to govern must use state instruments diligently not the meritocracy we are made to go through!

  4. The worst police in the world. They have a complaint, they are supposed to investigate and verify if the complaint is true or not. Ridiculousness.

  6. Does the police service (force) really know what their role is supposed to be? I am pretty sure they do know just like Lungu does not know that he is the president and that the buck stops with him. How else can you make of the so called police commissioner asking for evidence after receiving a complaint, this is just incompetency of the highest level

  8. Its tricky to produce evidence in this case coz one risks being nabbed for stealing NRCs and Voters Cards. Moreover no foreigner will come forth to confess they registered. Ni Kolopa Reloaded !!!

  9. God, I declare that every lying tongue is wrong and that truth prevails. Put a hook in their nostrils, bridle their lips, and hide HH from the scourge of their tongue. I come against falsehoods, slander, speculation, accusation, misrepresentation, and character assassination against HH. Great Father of glory, pure Father of light, cause the heavens to bow down with divine judgment; cast forth lightning to scatter them; shoot out Your arrows to destroy them. I superimpose the prophetic word over all abortive measures, strategies, and tactics of the enemy. I bring the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ between HH and you satan and your cohort. I tear down the strongholds of Satan and smash the plans of Satan that have been formed against HH. HH will lose no ground or territory gained through…

    • God of my Lord Jesus Christ, my Father of Glory, I tear down the strongholds of Satan and smash the plans of Satan that have been formed against HH. HH will lose no ground or territory gained through their undermining efforts or initiatives. God, my Father and my Lord Jesus Christ , I reject every satanic re-arrangement of HH’s destiny. Every power contending with HH’s divine destiny, scatter unto desolation. Anything planted in HH by enemies, come out with all your roots, in the name of Jesus. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

  10. When a graduate of Library studies (Masebo) and a graduate of teaching (Nkombo) complain there is something imwe Ba Haamonga? Wynter Kabimba is on record that when he was PF he at great personal risk smuggled and registered foreigner to vote for his party…that’s a self confession or in your police language ‘on admission’ he is the one who gave the register that was in his possession to his long time bedmate Masebo and she came with the ‘evidence’ to parliament so please don’t waste our time arrest the source or at best question him…
