Chilufya Tayali went ballistic yesterday afternoon after he was blocking from filling in his nomination papers for Lusaka Mayoral elections on account that he arrived late.
Mr Tayali who claimed to have been outside the Civics Centre in the car ready to file in his papers was turned away after he arrived shortly after 15:30 Hours.
He sharply reacted to the decision by the Returning Officer to bar him and charged that he was being disenfranchised.
Mr Tayali became highly emotional and started beating the table and declared the decision unfair.
The Returning Officer stood his ground and told Mr Tayali that he is merely following guidelines stipulated in the Electoral Code of Conduct.
Shortly afterwards, Mr Tayali summoned his few supporters to accompany him to the Electoral Commission of Zambia Head Office where he was planning to lodge a formal complaint.
Mr Tayali stormed out of the Civics Centre shouting on top of his voice crying blue murder.
