Bishop Mambo : ECZ Is Compromised

Bishop John Mambo says the decision by the Zambian government to print ballot papers outside the country is clear testimony that the Electoral Commission of Zambia is compromised.
Bishop Mambo says the compromised position of the ECZ makes it doubtful whether this year’s elections will be free and fair.
He says Zambia is capable of printing ballot papers locally, wondering why the ECZ and government have decided to print ballot papers in South Africa.
Bishop Mambo in an interview said in Lusaka says whichever political party will be ushered into office should ensure that the ballot papers for future elections are printed locally.
He has also advised the next government to ensure that the Electoral Commission of Zambia is independent.
He has however stated that despite the Electoral Commission of Zambia being compromised, there is nothing that will stop Zambians from voting for their preferred candidates.
And Bishop Mambo has advised political parties to conduct their campaigns in a peaceful manner.
He says now that the elections date has been set, political parties should ensure that they conduct campaigns in a peaceful manner.
