Zambian Police investigating reports of foreigners (Zimbabweans and Malawians) on the voters roll
Zambia Police service says it is still investigating reports alleging that some foreigners were registered as voters ahead of the August 11, general Election.
Police Deputy Spokesperson Rae Hamoomga says the probe is underway and that the public will be informed of the findings.
Mr Hamoonga said the UPND have launched formal a complaint at Lusaka’s Woodlands Police Station.
And Lusaka Province Police Commissioner Nelson Phiri says the police has asked the opposition to furnish them with evidence suggesting that some foreigners have registered as voters.
Mr Phiri has told ZNBC news that it is now a week since the police requested evidence but so far nothing has been forthcoming.
He confirmed that police received the complaint from former Mazabuka Central Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo and former Chongwe Mp Silvia Masebo alleging that the Electoral Commission of Zambia had registered foreigners as voters.
On Thursday ECZ Chairperson Essau Chulu during a stakeholders meeting said the Commission is aware of the complaint of some foreigners allegedly registering as voters and that he will only issue a comment once police complete their investigations.
