UPND cadres gaurding the trucks they impounded

The trucks that were impounded by United Party for National Development (UPND) cadres were not carrying any pre-marked ballot papers as was suspected.

According to documentation availed, the trucks were ferrying 60,000 lanterns and 235,000 batteries being supplied by Micro-Point Investments to the Electoral Commision of Zambia (ECZ).

This morning (January 11, 2015), UPND Cadres impounded two South African trucks belonging to African Cargo Management after word went round that they were carrying pre-marked ballot papers for this month’s presidential election.

The cadres said they had been trailing the trucks from Chirundu border post since last night after being tipped that they were carrying goods for the Electoral Commission of Zambia.

A verification of the contents of the truck later revealed that it was carrying chairs and batteries.
