UPND party Secretary General Stephen Katuka addressing the Members

United party for National Development (UPND) secretary general Steven Katuka has said that the party has welcomed the appointment of Mr.Patrick Nshindamo as the new Chief Elections Officer at the Electoral Commission of Zambia(ECZ)

In a statement released to the media, UPND said that, vaving known and interacted with Mr.Nshindamo at various civil society engagements, the party is very optimistic that he will deliver in his new mandate.

UPND further said that the party remained optimistic that his character and experience as an advocate of good governance will turn around the fortunes of the Electoral Commission of Zambia(ECZ) in regaining public confidence.

The UPND has since advised the new Elections Chief to take a holistic approach to matters of elections in the country and regain public confidence in an organization that remains the pinnacle of our country’s democracy and its values.

The party said that Mr.Nshindamo’s appointment comes at the time when the organization needs to retain it’s credibility which has eroded in the recent past in the eyes of the political players and the general public.

The party concluded by asking the new CEO to hit the ground running in terms of elections management,voter registration and retention of public confidence

    • There was no point of that from UPND, it is writing congratulations letter to a judge who will take over your court case.

    • He hasn’t even presided over one single election and the praises are already out. Wait till we see him in action. What if he turns out to be the type that can easily succumb to undue pressure?

  1. The public and many stakeholders have confidence in ECZ led by man of high integrity Justice Esau Chulu.What Katuka could have said is “HH’s UPND has no confidence in those who have been running ECZ in the past!!In any game,only a loser criticizes a referee.Thus,it is UPND,the seasoned losers(since 1998) who tarnishes the name of ECZ.
    That said,indeed congratulations to Mr Shindamo who has the MBA from CBU!!We wish you all the best as you wait to declare PF’s victory after 12/08/2021 and i have no doubt that you will be delivering splendid results!!!

  4. Very soon UPND will issue a different statement. It’s difficult to take UPND seriously because of the so many inconsistencies

  5. UPND is useless. No vice president, no manifesto, no internal elections no convention, no democracy. They just have a privatization thief, tribalism and Nkombo the forger.

    • Kikikikikiki UPND is the most useless opposition party Zambia has ever had. If we had an EFF like they do in South Africa, PF would actually be working and putting ministers into cabinet that are actually competent, unlike Jean Kapata, Kampyongo, Professor Luo and Ronald Chitotela. We all know with a few weeks UPND will be insulting the new ECZ boss and calling him names.

  6. Hehehehehe…just like a boy positioning himself for a new chick in town.
    You’re opposing amendments to the constitution suggested at the NDF, my question is are you comfortable with the 14 days petition period?
    Keep on being antagonistic, come 2021 we will vote under the same laws. I hope you will still say the same about the new man in the office.
