ECZ to investigate the under age registration, but believes images are stage managed

Share

The Electoral Commission of Zambia has said that it is aware of the images and information circulating on social-media of the alleged under-age person registered as a voter.

ECZ acting Public Relations Manager Sylvia Bwalya said preliminary investigations indicate that it is a staged picture.

Ms Bwalya said the Commission is still investigating the matter and will inform the public on the findings of the case.

“The requirements for one to register as a voter are that one must be a Zambian citizen of 18 years and above and in possession of a green National Registration Card,” she said.

Ms.Bwalya said anyone who does not meet the requirements and attempts to register as a voter commits an offense which is liable for prosecution.

“The Commission, therefore, calls on the public to desist from such vices and report anyone found attempting to perform any illegality, to the Commission or the nearest police station,” Ms.Bwalya said.

  1. ITS ZAMBIA AGAIN REMAINS WITH 9 MONTHS BEFORE WE WENT FOR ANOTHER GENERAL ELECTIONS. WHAT IS WORRYING IS THAT WILL ECZ MANAGE THE STARTED ELECTIONS WELL WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN ARROGANT AT FIRST WITHOUT FULL INVOLVEMENT OF THE MAIN CONTENDANTS?
    AM WORRIED ON VOTTING PATTEN, ALREADY FLOWS IN REGISTRATION OF NRC AND VOTER’S CARDS CHARACTORIZED WITH DOUBTFUL FLOWS. ECZ EQUIPMENT HAS BEEN A LET DOWN LEAVING MANY LEGIBLE VOTERS UNREGISTERED IN MOST PLACES. IF IT HAS BEEN TAKING BETWEEN 10 TO 20 MINUTES FOR ONE TO HAVE A VOTER’S CARD, HOW POSSIBLE WILL THE VOTING DONE WITHIN A DAY FROM 06:00 TO 18:00 WITH EQUPMENT WHICH IS FAILING TO CAPTURE PEOPLE IN A SHORT POSSIBLE TIME CONSIDERING FINGER PRINTS AND NRC CARD NUMBERS WHICH DO NOT REFLECT ON THE VOTER’S CARDS?

  2. It is a waste of time to investigate such things. There are a lot of people at these registration centers who can not tolerate a kid that was paraded to register as a voter. One needs to be a brain washed UPND cadre the brain washed by Chief Mukuni himself to believe such a story.

  7. Its difficult to investigate Zambian NRC cards.

    If they were computerized yes but unfortunately not.

    Otherwise, it is true many underage people have registered countrywide.

    It all started with UPND but PF also copied it.

  8. Around September 2020, I gave a lift to a couple in Petauke recently along the Ukwimi road. They confirmed that issuance of NRC to was given to young people below the age of 15 years so that they can register as voters.

  9. We have so many conmen in Southern Africa, this is because our colleagues in west Africa have hard their full cycle of conmen and outright day light wizards and witchdoctors. In west Africa no one listens to you if you tell them that you have so much money left by your rich father or whoever and that you want to share with someone. No one has money for such things. In Southern Africa some people are still backward/gullible and have lost huge sums of money. Look at mineral pay, Some South Africans have lost their entire savings, fake prophets are all over, breaking marriages. Just look around and see. Southern Africa open your eyes. Follow the number of cases involving the so-called prophets in South Africa, not even mentioning the Bushiri case, there are several involving west African…

  10. … Look at mineral pay several people in Zambia lost huge sums of money and they are quiet_ west African scams, Some South Africans have lost their entire savings, fake prophets are all over, breaking marriages. Just look around and see. Southern Africa open your eyes. Follow the number of cases involving the so-called prophets in South Africa, not even mentioning the Bushiri case, there are several involving west African “pastors” or “prophets ” who discovered Southern Africa. Take this as timely warning for those, that it is not too late.

  11. The UPND national chairperson stated at a media briefing to day that in chiengi constituency of luapula province the citizens effected citizens arrest on illegal immigrants who were brought in from DRC by PF to get NRCs and register as voters in next year’s general election. The chiengi district commissioner intervened and had these congolese freed from police cells. What is ECZ doing about such a story?.

  12. It is so common nowadays that if any government initiative gets popularity then suddenly false news starts circulating on social media. First, it was NRCs, and now this ECZ’s registration process.

  13. ECZ is ready to do an investigation. Unlike HH who runs away from reality, there is evidence of his crimes out in public domain but still, he is not ready to say a word.

  14. They are not scared because they are confident that no fraud had taken place in the registration process and hence ready to do an investigation.

  15. There is the proper procedure to get voter card and NRCs, it is zero percent chances that any mistake or fraud happened here.

  16. The opposition UPND party has no developmental work to show but they need to carry out the election campaign, and to show their presence ahead of elections they are spreading such negative news.

  17. SCHEMES OF UPND….UPND IS MORE EVIL THAN PF INFACT UPND IS A CULT AND THE HOUSE OF DEMONS OF BITTERNESS WANTING TO RULE ZAMBIA BY TRIBE. THERE IS NOTHING ABOUT UPND ALL THEY WANT IS A TONGA TO RULE ZAMBIA AND THAT TONGA IS ONLY HH NOT ANYONE ELSE…..THIS NONSENCE MUST BE STOPPED

  18. THESE UPND ARE WICKED, THEY SCHEME EVIL THINGS AGAINST GOVERNMENT JUST BECAUSE THEY WANT GRZ AND PF TO LOOSE POPULARITY THEY ARE BAD HEARTED, BITTER THAN THE DEVIL HIMSELF. WE CAN NOT TRUST THEM

  19. The investigation is simple. Show us the cards at close range so that we see if the portraits on the NRC and voter’s card are that of the boy holding them. The readers will judge for themselves
