The Electoral Commission of Zambia says the campaigns in Kaoma have generally been peaceful apart from the shooting incident on Sunday which left one person dead.

The Commission has since advised political parties to continue exercising tolerance across the party lines.

ECZ Public relations Manager Margaret Chimanse says as the campaign period comes to a close today, political parties should maintain a peaceful political atmosphere where all players can freely participate without hindrance, fear and anticipation.

Mrs. Chimanse said the Commission looks forward to a conducive environment for all stakeholders and has urged the Zambia Police Service to act professionally and impartially.

She said in policing the elections to ensure that law and order is maintained, during campaigns and during elections at polling stations and districts where the elections are happening, police officers must ensure that all people are protected.

Mrs. Chimanse has further appealed to the electorate and all stakeholders to take ownership of the process by using their democratic right to vote.

    Are you kidding me? What’s their definition of ‘peaceful’ these people? Someone dies and you call that ‘peaceful’? Have we become immune to violence and death so much that we view death of an individual as normal? What a [email protected]&*ked up country this is! Just because the perpetrator is a PF sycophant, they are scared of condemning the murderous act.

    They should have suspended or even canceled these elections to send a stern message that any violence of any form shall not be tolerated. What a missed opportunity for them to really change how campaigning must be conducted in this country.

    • @Sharon, if Zambians are peaceful then why are you continuously taunting the leader of the opposition by calling him HAZALUZA HAGAIN. Surly your mother will be saddened by the platitudes that have occupied your medulla oblongata
      Anyway ALL PEACE LOVING ZAMBIANS wait for the day you will be pleading for forgiveness and protection when your pay master turns on you. And guess what he will forgive you because he is a God fearing man and his family.
      May the Lord guide you away from the evil thoughts that have overwhelmed you.

  3. This is an insult to the family of the deceased!!

    What in the world is going on in Zambia kanshi? It’s all about appeasing the Great Leader.

    How can ECZ come to such a conclusion when there is a body in the morgue and smoking gun. I’m scared. So how many do we have to lose in a general election for them to say it was not peaceful?

    • I agree that these campaigns have been very peaceful considering that only 0.005% of those involved in the campaign was killed.

  4. Whaaaaaat!……. What has gotten into these people at ECZ? A life has been lost and all they can say is that the campaigns have been peaceful. If anything they were even supposed to postpone the elections after the death of that UPND cadre.These guys should be careful. One of them will appear at the ICC one day

  5. Information reaching me here from the ground is that kaoma is ours. We have already won. Just announce those results in advance so that we move on Anyway guys yesterday I was sat watching my white wife get on with her business around the house. I watched her for a good 30 minutes and pondered on how lucky I was to have such a beautiful blonde white wife with an amazing body. She puts to shame lots of zambian women half her age. This woman is the epitome of stunning . After that I carried her to bed and the rest is x rated.
