FDD says maneuvers by the PF to rig the elections will drive the country into a Political a Armageddon whose consequences are too ghastly to contemplate.
FDD Spokesperson Antonio Mwanza said the evidence of foreigners registered to vote is overwhelming and that the ECZ have failed to prove that they are not colluding with PF to manipulate the results.
Below is the statement issued to the media.
The maneuvers by PF to rig the forming coming elections by using Malawians to vote for them will drive Zambia into a political Armageddon consequences are too ghastly to contemplate.
There is overwhelming documented evidence that the PF Government has registered Malawians whom they want to illegally vote in the upcoming elections. We as a Party have challenged the Electoral Commission of Zambia to come clean on this very serious matter and they have lamentably failed to prove to us that they are not colluding with PF to manipulate the outcome of the 2016 general elections.
We want to strongly caution PF that they should not take the people’s pacificism for granted. The people shall not accept their votes to be stolen. They will not allow Mr Edgar Lungu and his minions to muffle their voice. Peace does not fall from the sky. Peace has to be worked for. And what PF is doing an affront to peace.
They should never forget the fate of all those charlatans who have involved themselves in electoral chicanery. They should never for a moment think that they will rum away from the long arm of the law.
We shall deal with them individually. We want to call upon all opposition parties, the church, civil societies, international elections observers and all co-operating partners to close work together and monitor and carefully scrutinise the entire election process.
There should be no UPND or FDD. We have to work together as Zambians in ensuring that the PF does not strangle the people’s will.
