Now ECZ Summons Nevers Mumba over Rigging Allegations, but party rejects request

Headlines Now ECZ Summons Nevers Mumba over Rigging Allegations, but party rejects request

Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) has rejected the request for its party President Nevers Mumba to appear before the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) today without fail, after he was summoned, with the party saying that ECZ has no authority to summon anyone.

In a letter addressed to Dr. Mumba, ECZ Chief Electoral Officer Patrick Nshindano requested Dr. Mumba to appear before the ECZ today at 14 hours at the ECZ Headquarters.

“Following allegations of rigging in the just ended Lukashya By-Elections made by yourself, you are requested to appear before the Commission without fail at 14 hours”, the letter read.

But MMD National Secretary Hon. Elizabeth Chitika, in response, said that neither ECZ nor Nshindano have the authority to summon anyone as they are not a Court.

“I write to inform you that President Mumba is not available and will be unable to appear before You. However, even if he was around, he would never come to your office as demanded by you since you are not a Court”, Hon. Chitika wrote.

Hon Chitika further said that the opportunity to hear from the MMD ended when the Returning Officer announced the results.

“You may wish to know that the Campaign Manager for the MMD during the just ended By-Elections, Mr. Tobias Maliti phoned your Returning Officer after him, together with other authorized MMD officials, were stopped from witnessing the counting of votes at a number of polling stations. It is at that particular time that you would have demanded to hear from us. It is therefore a mockery for your office to summon our party President today as if you are a Court when your Returning Officer neglected to attend to our serious complaint at that critical time”, Hon. Chitika said.

She further requested Nshindano to check with the Lukashya Returning office to establish if the MMD Campaign Manager called the Returning Officer who promised to resolve the problem but never did. And a follow-up letter of complaint from the MMD was written and delivered to the Returning Officer.

  1. This krytoris Nshindano is a styupid boy. Why is he terrified of PF?
    Did he even throw away those excess ballots for Lukashya?

  2. This is correct behaviour by ECZ. Nevers Mumba has been categorical and I hope he won’t be intimidated. I’m eager to see the evidence.

  3. I feel pity for Elizabeth chitika. Very beautiful woman who is been forced to remain loyal to a losing party like mmd. Deep down she wants to join the winning team pf. As for mumba it is very disappointing to see an old man who was a pastor and claims to be a man of God, lying through his teeth. These are the people who will be first to burn in hell. The hypocrites are worse than the devil worshippers.

  4. I had asked a question through this forum since some of us are mosquitoes who can not access might GRZ offices:
    I said many of my mothers, father’s, brothers and sisters in rural areas including here I in Lusaka do NOT know how to go on internet let alone they do not have smart phones. Are these people going to VOTE? If not a to these coming elections for the Elite!

  6. WRONG WORDING: ‘You are requested to appear before the Commission without fail at 14 hours.’ A REQUEST can lawfully be refused. How then can you add ‘without fail.?’ Is the ECZ really run by lawyers? This should read, ‘You are ORDERED to appear… without fail.’ This then is not negotiable.
    Ichisungu!

    The Greatest threat to Zambia’s survival as a civilised and progressive country is the ECZ and PF. Forget campaigning, just focus all your resources and efforts in stopping these good for nothing numskulls from rigging and manipulating the elections.

    The onus is on this ECZ to prove that they are not rigging elections. This is a public institution with a critical role to play in our democratic dispensation. They should therefore ensure people have confidence in it. Once people lose confidence in them they will take matters into their own hands… intimidation won’t do it. Even the perception of rigging is not good for ECZ.

  9. Dear country men and women my heart bleeds for my beloved Zambia by having people like Esau Chulu and Patrick Nshindano at the helm of ECZ. My Lord help us in these perilous times.

  10. @Chileshe Chepela, yes it means just that. Mosquitos such as yourself and many others will not be permitted to cast your vote(s) by the all mighty government of fools PF. We under estimated the power of stupid people in large numbers. Today, in Zambia even stone throwers think they qualify to be President. Why? Because they are judging themselves by what is currently in state house…chikopo. To say the bar has been set low is an understatement. It has been removed. It’s all about how low can you go. You ae the company that you keep.

  11. @Semeki, have you ever considered that just maybe ECL is the influencer? He really can not be this stupid and be alive at the same time.

  12. Ba Nevers Mumba carries a toxic gene of being intolerant & dictatorial. His grabbing of MMD leadership led to the migration of fine politicians (Prof. Lungwangwa, Dr. Chituwo, Dr. Musokotwane etc) who sought refugee status in UPND. Besides, Ba Mumba also has a gene of economizing on the truth (LIES) for which he was convicted for tress pass at ZNBC promises. His allegations of rigging in Lukashya by-elections reflects his genetic make up for LIES. Kambwili and Kalaba could have supported UPND there. Interestingly, Ba Mumba praised Malawian election of Dr. Chakwera in the hope that Zambians could usher him (as Priest) the Republican Presidency. Alas, Dr. Chakwera’s visit to Lusaka was spiced by congratulating PF for wining Lukashya and Mwansabombwe elections.

  13. ECZ is not a Court!
    Their summoning of Nevers Mumba shows things are not okay in ECZ.
    ECZ is tempting fate here and doing a very expensive experiment with our National Peace!
