Government Postpones Phase Two of the 2020 Mobile National Registration Card exercise

Share

The government has postponed phase two of the 2020 Mobile National Registration Card exercise which was scheduled to commence on 1st September 2020.

Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo says the decision to delay the starting date is due to the slow start and challenges experienced during phase one of the exercise.

Mr. Kampyongo has also attributed the delays to COVID-19, which led to a slow pace in the delivery of equipment.

He says phase one is expected to end on September 9th.

Mr. Kampyongo further says an assessment is however being carried out to ascertain areas where the exercise started late.

He says the distribution of equipment and materials to provinces under phase 2 is already being done.

Mr. Kampyongo says phase 2 will be conducted in Lusaka, Southern, Western, Central and Muchinga provinces, with about 7 hundred and 30 thousand eligible persons expected to be captured.

He was speaking when he issued a statement on the update of the ongoing Mobile National Registration Card exercise in Chinsali District

  1. This is a double edged sward. You might think you are doing yourselves a favour by concentrating in your stronghold but you do not know the mind of an excited youth voting for the first time.

  2. So what happens to the voter registration exercise that is dependent on this ? Is also going to be delayed in starting ? This is what happens when stakeholders are arrogantly ignored. Let CSOs go to court. Zambia belongs to us all and we want to all vote…

  3. Life is more important than a national card. I support your efforts ba minister. Plus you have given valid reasons for why target can not be met. The opposition are desperate to use anything as reason for their pending losses.

    “RULING OF THE LAW ASSOCIATION OF ZAMBIA AGAINST MR. EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU*****
    ————————————————————————
    On 16th April 2009, the Legal Practitioners Committee (LPC) of the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) received a complaint from a Ms Wendy Kanyanta against Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu claiming he had illegally obtained fees of K36,080.42 from compensation meant for her despite already being paid costs of K40,000.00 from the unsuccessful party, Lafarge Cement, who were her former employers.
    Both parties were summoned before the LPC on 24th July 2009 and Mr Lungu was asked to respond to the accusation. Mr Lungu admitted having obtained the money on the understanding that they were legal costs due to him for the services…

    At the next sitting of the LPC on 18th September 2009, it was proven that Mr Lungu did deduct his client’s monies illegally despite receiving costs of K40,000.00 from Lafarge. Mr Lungu did not dispute this finding of the committee and accepted he had acted illegally.
    The LPC declared Mr Lungu’s conduct entirely illegal after referring to Rule 17(1) of the Legal Practitioners Practice Rules, 2002 which provides that, “a Practitioner shall inform clients about charges or fees and the basis for such charges on taking instructions.”
    Mr Lungu’s…

  7. on taking instructions.”
    Mr Lungu’s failure to inform the client in writing without reasonable cause amounted to professional misconduct or conduct unbefitting a lawyer. It was ordered that Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu should pay back that amount within sixty days from 4th March 2010 when the ruling was made or face further disciplinary proceedings.
    In contravention of the order of the LPC, Mr Lungu only paid K9,000.00 of the K36,080.42.
    This forced Ms. Kanyanta to sue in the subordinate court under cause no. 2010/CRMP/688 on 6th August 2010 for the balance of K27,080.42. Mr. Lungu admitted guilt to the claim in court on 19th August 2010 and applied to settle the debt in instalments of K5,000.00″

  8. Dude love go and write that on your f00lish fathers father’s Facebook. No one here is interested in trivial things that have already been considered. You clearly have nothing better to say or sell to the people as opposition. This is why you are losing in 2021. You think people will vote you in based on talking about peoples past conduct. Ecl still became president even after you used that to discredit him. You think it will work this time? Kikiki ubufontini
