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.

The two trucks were parked at Lusaka Central Police station while waiting for officials from ECZ and Zambia Revenue Authority to determine what goods are in the containers.

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

So is UPND Vs PF, PF does need to rig elections because PF is too good,popular, renowned, repute for UPND, they want to create chaos after being defeated. Wait for the D-day, they will be no online comments from UPND supporters. Mark my words

  8. everything including lanterns are election materials and need be transported transparently. That’s the spirit. If you just transport without any information, a search is good for clarity. That’s what it calls for transparency. Any other truck provided it looks suspicious will be ripped for clarity.

  11. Anti-rigging squad is working very well. Keep on impounding all suspicious trucks.

  12. This is what has become normal in Zambia because of the disconnection that has happened between the citizens and their government: nobody simply trusts the state and its institutions because of the litany of lies over the past 20 years.

    Restoring trust between the the government and the governed is among the priorities of the new government from 21 January 2015.

  16. My advice to upnd leaders is that they should be sober minded because their wild thinking is leading their cadres into a very dangerous situation.these cadres believe what these officials say.Canisius Banda spoke about unfounded issues,then comes the nightmare of Upnd victory.This information is suicidal to Upnd cadres.How are they going to accept defeat?The law is there to safe guard the peace of this nation.The security will never be intimidated by Upnd & its tribal cadres to destroy the peace.Why this desperation?Where is police I.G. to allow this nonsense?Upnd cadres are left freely to harrase innocent ECZ employees.It is really true that the I.G. is Upnd inclined,and does not want Hon. Lungu.She has rushed to arrest PF cadres whilst Upnd thugs are left freely.Wait for next week,Hon.Edgar will be in power and IG will be another wife to hh at hi farm.These upnd cadres should be prepared for the heat that is coming next week.Remember what happened to William Banda in 2011 after the loss of MMD
