The 2016 voter’s register audit findings have shown that 132,837 voters on the voter’s register are sharing National Registration Card numbers while 2,555 people shared NRC numbers, names and dates of birth.

The audit has not been able to show evidence to support the allegations of inclusion of suspected foreigners in the provisional register of voters because all the registration records have associated NRC numbers that conforms to the legal requirement.

The auditors however did not rule out the fact that it is possible for the Electoral Commission to register foreign nationals.The Commission has since invited political parties to inspect the provisional register and identify any non-Zambians who are on the list.

As a result of that call, two people have since been taken off the register.

The Electoral Commission of Zambia engaged external consultants from Kenya lead by Dismas Ong’ando who started working on the 5th of June up to 5th July this year.

And the audit has revealed that 492 people shared nearly full registration details with some variations on gender and district code on NRC number.

It has also established that 1,697,762 people representing 32 percent of the registered voters were added to the register as new voters while 142,383 were ineligible to vote and have been removed from the voter’s register.

This was disclosed during a stakeholders meeting in Lusaka organised by the Electoral Commission of Zambia.

Meanwhile, ECZ Chairperson Esau Chulu also disclosed that the register audit key findings show that there is no evidence that foreigners were added to the 2016 voter’s register.

Justice Chulu emphasised that the audit of the voter’s register was done transparently by foreign independent auditors between 5th June and 5th July 2016.

He said the ECZ has established that the existing penalties on election offences are inadequate with no penalties specifically related to the offence of multiple voter registrations.

He said the commission has since written to the Department of National Registration, Passports and Citizenship requesting for death records of citizens that were of voting age at the time of death.The Commission also wrote to the National Pensions Scheme Authority last month requesting for the records of citizens that were of voting age at the time of death.

NAPSA has since replied to the Commission which is also analysing and processing the date availed to it.

Team leader Mr. Ong’ondi is a qualified Information Security Management Business Continuity Management IT Governance and was trained at the University of Nairobi, in Kenya.

    • I don’t see any use of making those Kenyans instant millionaires just to be fuuuuking on Syambikula’s registers. What are those numbers for? Why bring thugs to come and disclose that the primary school teachers who have been registering voters like duplicating numbers? Whats wrong with errors?
      I think problem will only arise when people show up to vote with no card at all.

    • Nostradamus, or whatever? Grow up mate. Audits of electoral systems is standard practice. There are many reasons it is done including purging the dead, removing duplicates that may occur because of people relocating say from Kitwe to Lusaka. Also note that in the case of this audit there are duplicate NRCs, whose reason may well be that there are weaknesses in the NRC process. The benefit clearly is that voter registration process itself can be improved and its integrity assured.

      You can’t keep insulting people who don’t support you when you know those who support you are few – how do you hope to increase the number? Those you insult they cannot move to join you after receiving your insults.
      Last time you said those who voted for PF were not thinking, and you go to them this time to ask for their vote, after your insult they should pay you a vote for that? No way.
      This is the reason why UPND will not gain the required numbers.

    • FRANK BWALYA EXPOSED!!! Source: UPND USA Facebook
      Posted on July 13, 2016 by kachemakontolola

      Many have wondered what the fallen Priest has been up to lately as he has gone extremely silent from the public. Well, we caught up with the former priest and found him doing exactly what we thought he was doing…that crook of a man!
      Bwalya is distributing money in Muchinga Province and getting people’s voters cards in exchange. He has been doing this rigging scheme for a long time now and he has promised Lungu of a landslide Victory in the area.
      The program is so organised that the State has dedicated a helicopter for all his errands to allow him touch the remotest areas so as to bribe as many as possible. This is the method Bwalya used in Luwingu district, he has done this fraud before…

    • before and is confident it will work again.
      Bwalya is lodged at Tazama guest house with the bill being footed by OUR tax payers money!
      Lungu has gone a step further to bribe Chief Nkula by buying him a brand new VX on top of his salary increment. This gesture has ONLY been shown to Chief Nkula, who is also receiving huge allowances from Frank Bwalya, all at the expense of his subjects.
      Why hasn’t Lungu bought for all Chiefs??
      The same chief has been allocated 60 truck loads of Mukula tree to export. This sounds small but 60 truck loads of this tree amounts to billions of Kwacha…tax free!!!
      The PF are having a fair share of the mukula tree in his area. They have employed boys chopping trees who are paid k45,000 per truck load, now guess how much Bwalya is syphoning from this…

      Bwalya is doing nothing but littering stolen money all over. This is what the former priest has been doing in his silence. He is bribing, stealing, buying voters cards and preaching hate among the people.

      Lungu is fully aware of how Zambia is being defrauded, but he supports that…what a shame indeed. What a leader!

    Can you kindly and sensibly explain how you relate HH and Neganega to the audit report? It is worrying how some human beings choose to lead a life filled with nothing but hatred for people who have done them no wrong. It boggles the mind how you Mr Kudos instead of intelligently commenting on the facts and figures detailed in the audit report you prefer to expose your diminished levels of thinking. Your picture sums it up so well. Your hatred is such that you even hate yourself. Leave HH and the Tonga people alone and if you don’t mind tell us a bit about yourself and your tribe, please!

Have you ever asked yourself why independent monitors of the elections are called from outside as well? With your thinking, you can as well say we do not need them because Zambians are capable. Gullible indeed, kikikiki

  6. Well done ECZ. In spite of the anomalies at least the Voters Register is now available to all participants in this Election. We hope and pray that voters’ names are still in the Register and in their respective voting stations and constituencies and have not been disenfranchised. ECZ now needs to follow thru in a transparent manner the next stages of this election and deliver a credible election result.So far so good.

  7. The anomalies have been found so take them away. It’s possible someone had criminal intentions or it’s just errors caused by manually writing while registering. ECZ receives so much money, why not computerise the vote register system to avoid such heinous error!

  11. I share my NRC number with another person but fortunately its a lady. A POLICE officer threatened me in 2011 during voter registration that i voted twice but got saved when he realised the other person was a woman and the names were not the same. This anomaly is because of not having a computerised NRC system.

    • @Sindicate, that is the issue!! These people at NRC have been using manual procedures of the 70s when we have a population of about 5 million and technology was not just readily available. What surprises me is that each government that comes does not treat citizens’ registration as a serious matter. There is need for a comprehensive computerization of:registration of births,issuance of NRCs and death’s recording processes. These are serious security issues that need to be well managed and it is easier to do since technology is now readily available and affordable. What can prevent some one to use a name and NRC details of a dead person? What proof is there that people getting green NRC deserve them? How can an issuing officer be traced and made answerable in case of queries?? All these…

    • Zambia is luck for having a national ID card (NRC). In some countries and I won’t mention them here where similar audits have been conducted, evidence of citizenship is by all manner of evidence including witnesses, Certificate of nationality, Passport, Driver’s license, Pension card, Student ID, employment ID card.

      So Zambia is relatively advanced by African standards.

  12. Hopefully they have the means to contact the affected people so they are not disenfranchised. we should also be informed of the action to be taken to rectify the problem. I believe the majority of these are double entries even though you can’t rule out sinister motives. Make sure we use the ink to ensure no one votes twice.

WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE INELIGIBLE VOTERS. YOU ARE NOT TRANSPARENT ENOUGH TO TELL US WHAT MAKES THEM INELIGIBLE. IS IT BECAUSE THEY ARE UNDER AGE, OR THEY ARE FOREIGNERS, OR WHAT?
    AND THE ISSUE OF FOREIGNERS BEING REGISTERED AS VOTERS NEEDS THOROUGH INVESTIGATIONS BECAUSE SUCH INDIVIDUALS ARE DIFFICULT TO DETECT JUST BY LOOKING AT THE REGISTER SINCE THEY WERE ILLEGALLY GIVEN NRCs AND HAVE VOTERS CARDS. WE JUST NEED TO BE SERIOUS AND HONEST WITH OUR INVESTIGATIONS.

    If Zambian NRC were given to foreigners, then those foreigners register as voters, the audit couldn’t pick that out because the legal requirements was met. That’s what the auditors are saying. So the Chairperson statement is off side!

What the ECZ auditors did was to check for duplicates which anyone can do using Microsoft Excel. What they should be doing is to further carry out a substantive test by taking a sample of registered voters in the areas suspected to have foreign voters and check if they actually do exist. They can even use the voters NRCs published by the POST and carry out a test by going to the registered voters villages to check if they do exist.

The source must be verified that is verify if the NRC were given to deserving people and then see how many foreigners are likely to have been allowed to register to vote. That will help!

It is a world government and they can choose any consultant they feel will give the desired results with being biased.

  28. The voter registration of foreigners is irreversible at this stage becoz they used Zambian documents to register. What ca only be done is to educate people in the border areas not to go and vote if they know as foreigners are not entitled to vote in our elections. Those foreigners who are caught voting risk their lives and can be jailed. These foreigners were bribe to come vote in our elections by the PF Govt and the culprits if found should be held accountable.

    They pile up missiles and launch pads in schools and hospitals and then launch Rockets into Israel. Then they put Children and Babies near these sites expecting Israel to respond, off course to kill some of these. And Israel will definitely respond. But the Israeli response will be met with cameras already put in place to capture the images of Israel bombing Children and Babies, and these pictures are then spread all over – much to the horror of the world.

  32. A Hamas equivalent is gradually evolving in Zambia. They cause confrontation with the Police and everything fixed and moving, then they put poor children in the line of fire, and from a safe distance they take pictures eagerly awaiting for the poor kids to be harmed so as to satisfy their now desperate propaganda war. Once the children are harmed they rush to the international media and to some other galleries loudly playing victim , when they are the real murderers. May the powers that be look at the UPND’s schemes. From Mapatizya, Mufumbwe, Kasama, Chalimbana ,Bweengwa, Namwala , and now all over the country. Zambia is dealing with a Terrorist Organization masquerading as a political party.

  34. The reason why every reasonable person should be cheated by HH and UPND to vote for them is that HH is only seen to the voters during election times and over promises and most importantly, he has not explained to Zambians how he alone will “FIX” the economy, make the copper prices go up, fund the education sector, create employment for all the youths and bring investors in Zambia when we is against infrastructure development. he should also give Zambians the timelines in which he expect to do all the miracles he keeps hallucinating about otherwise, we all these things President Lungu is doing them and we can see and experience them!

  36. At the time of voter registration, individual registration points around the country are not connected to the main data base. It is therefore possible that you can cheat yourself by registering at many different registration points. What an audit does is collapse into one central data base all records from the different registration centers nationwide. It is at this point that the computer is able to match identical NRC’s first and fore most and then names, sex, age and other particulars. If you registered more than once therefore, only one center will be retained for voting purposes. I hope you will remember which one.

As the Post revealed a week ago, it is very possible for the voter’s register to have more none Zambians because, the names of foreigners registered in border towns with Tanzania, DR Congo, Malawi etc could still have been wrongly given a green NRCs and they could still carry similar names as Zambians due to inter-marriages. So only people living in border towns can identify them as foreigners because they frequently see them crossing in and out of Zambia. Therefore, involving non-Zambians to inspect the register cannot unearth this problem because culprits would still have Zambian names and NRCs.

  40. So imwe fima useless PF cadres,if this Foreigner from Kenya Dismas Ong’ando,who is known to ve to faked & tempered with the kenyan voters roll too,is an independent consultant & hired by the UN why is it that he has been working form state house?know your facts before you vomit food u ate using our Eurobond money okey?And if he is independent,why is ECZ doing his job of confirming that the voters roll is clean,that shows you that they are acting together.Let the Opposition parties and other stake holders confirm that the voters roll is clean,not this Dismas Ong’ando foreign & ECZ PF cadres.This ***** shd continue locking himself inside statehouse or he will be slaughtered soon like he & kibaki massacred the kenyans in 2008.

  41. It is good outsiders audited the register. The 2-3 per cent is not error by ECZ alone but I personally think the National Registration Office, under Home affairs have a share of it. Having said that, this should act as a work up call for the Home affairs ministry to check their records and visit the culprits in the irregularities. IS THIS ASKING FOR TOO MUCH FROM OUR HOME AFFAIRS MINISTRY?

  42. And more over ECZ is always shifting the blame onto other ministries-what exactly is ECZ’s job?The foreigners that were registered from Malawi ECZ refuted the allegations as it slided the duty to the Home Affairs department.Violence,ECZ blames opposition parties,Printing of ballot papers ECZ says its government’s job to chose,and now Double registration of NRC’s again useless ECZ shifts the blame to Home Affairs-what exactly is ECZ’s job?What are those tubena Pricilla,Chulu paid to do?otherwise firethe whole lot cos they ve no job there other than making announcements on ZNBC.Shd we be paying them so much money just to make an announcement?

  43. The audit was not properly done just because it involved foreign auditors not cognizance with the Zambian system of corruption. The information itself reveals a lot of foreigners registered. In today’s world and Zambia in particular a foreigner can easily be given a Zambian name get away with it! Get samples of those people sharing particulars and interview them and you will see. To be an independent specialist does not mean that one has to be a non-Zambian but also be in terms of outside your own profession. Otherwise tomorrow we will even outsource ‘ECZ’ just like the printing of ballots.THE POINT BEHIND ALL THIS IS INCOMPETENT LUNGU AND CARTEL OF PF. ZAMBAI HAS QUALITY WORKERS IN ANY FIELD ALSO.

  45. The dull people can say ECZ doesnt issue NRCs. But this rigging scam is well orchestrated. The Home Affairs working in league can register anyone or use anyone’s NRC number. There are no voyers who state that they are foreigners. Truck and bus loads of Malawans were ferried to register for NRCs and voters cards. THE AUDIT REPORT DOES NOT SAY THERE ARE NO FOREIGNERS ON THE VOTERS REGISTER. There is a possibility.

  47. THE GREEN NATIONAL REGISTRATION CARDS ARE THE ONES WHICH ARE GIVEN TO FOREIGNERS WHICH IS TRUE. THE REGISTRATION DEPARTMENT MUST ARREST ALL THOSE HOLDING SAME NUMBERS AND SHARE THE SAME NAMES. THIS IS A FAUL TO THE ECZ BECAUSE THIS MEANS THAT THE HUGE NUMBER OF THE PEOPLE FOUND TO HOLD THE SAME NRC ARE FOREINERS. THEY ARE BEM,BEMBAS OF CHIPATA AND THIS TO ME SOUNDS TRUE.

  48. It requires a marketing system and marketing knowledge to achieve any company opportunity. “The Donald” fully endorses besides mlm, but ACN as well. You may lose your focus (as happened with Trump when things went south) or drive.
