The Lusaka High Court has adjourned the case in which musician Chama Fumba, aka Pilato, and others have sued the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) in the Lusaka High Court.

This is in a case where he and others sued ECZ in what they call an alleged attempt to undermine the democracy of the country, through their decision to deregister every valid voter, which Pilato and team say is aimed at disadvantaging millions of people in the process.

Meanwhile, the ECZ says only eligible Zambian citizens, who will register during the 2020 Voter Registration Exercise will qualify to vote in the 2021 General Elections.

The Commission however, said eligible Zambians who will not register during the 2020 Voter Registration exercise will not be able to vote in the 2021 General Elections and future elections conducted under the new register of voters.

“Eligible Zambians who will not register will only be eligible to vote in future elections when the Commission undertakes another voter registration exercise after the 2021 General Elections,” said the Commission.

The Commission called upon all eligible Zambians to register during the 2020 Voter Registration exercise even if one is currently registered, saying if one do not register they will not vote in the 2021 General Elections.
