  1. If it is true, it calls for celebration. But let these people not go scot free for fraudulent and sham elections

  2. These are the people who cleared Malanji. It was long overdue.
    The way this guy was behaving during the last two elections as the CEO of ECZ was purely a pf cadre mentally.
    Good luck as you join us in the streets.

  3. Wow!!…. this has been long overdue. What a clean up, this is real pruning, slashing, disinfecting, decontaminating, sanitizing, washing and thoroughly cleansing the system. I have not forgotten Chilubi by-election where the opposition could not sell their message to the electorates as they were driven out of the area by pf police then, now Zambia police service. These Nshindano grouping went ahead and declared that biased election as free and fair. Well done whoever has fired!

  4. He was on contract so can’t really be fired as such. They just agreed to mutually part ways obviously after being offered a hefty sum.
