The ruling party in an attempt to win the highly contested Chilanga by-election has moved into constituency to ‘buy off’ the Voters, promising they will sort out all their problems.

An Electoral Expert MacDonald Chipenzi has described the move as blackmail and has since called on Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to censor the PF.

There are reports that pf government has promised to act on Chilanga challenges and also that Lusaka Province Minister did address heads of departments in Chilanga.

Last evening on TV ZNBC NEWS, it was reported that Ministry of Education had moved into Chilanga Constituency to attend to all education challenges in the area. This statement was attributed to Permanent Secretary in the Ministry Of Education.

If this is not electoral blackmail which ECZ must censure as per electoral Code provisions, then I don’t know what it is.

The Code gives the ECZ a duty to censure political parties, candidates, government and its organs against any act aimed at jeopardising the freeness and fairness of an election.

Does it mean that the ECZ is not aware of these blackmail oriented actions by government and its organs in Chilanga? Soon we will hear that or witness roads being rehabilitated in Chilanga.

ECZ is under test in Chilanga and no excuse will be good enough for its failure to censure offenders and enforce the Electoral Code.

We are watching and fixing our eyes and ears on Chilanga

  4. Elections are about promises and delivering on them. If you have run short of what to promise the people then don’t complain when your opponents do.Go all out PF and get the seat while cry babies carry on with what they do best;crying over spilled milk!
