Share

Voting commenced in Milenge District in Luapula Province as Milenge District Electoral Officer Dewine Kaoma said all the 46 polling stations in the 15 wards were opened at 06:00 hours.

A check by ZANIS at Milenge Primary School Polling Station found long queues of voters who were waiting to cast their votes before the polls opened.

By 13:00 hours, over 1000 people had cast their votes at Milenge Primary School polling station.

Meanwhile, some polling stations such as Katena Primary School started with a low voter turn-out as only 50 voters cast their votes by 08:00 hours.

Judith Chibuye, a youth, described the atmosphere as peaceful.

“The voting process is smooth and the environment is peaceful so far. I am urging those who are yet to vote to come through and choose leaders of their choice,” she said.

  1. We have observed Too many irregularities with the voting, the build up to this voting day has also not been free and fair, the current political landscape in Zambia is nothing to be desired, indeed when elephants fight the ants suffer.

  2. The campaigns were not fair to the opposition parties. Lungu and his band were ever breaking Covid rules and yet still campaigning.

    Anyway, youthful voter turnout is bad news for the PF. My brothers and sisters were out in record numbers today ?????? And I know they desperately want change as much as I do.

    Don’t we all?

    What about stories of people being found out with pre-marked ballot papers in Solwezi? Apparently some were even beaten up to death… could you report on that LT?

  4. Youths are sad, imagine going to vote in a Gown that’s to show people that school is no longer valued. Truly change is cardinal
