Zambia: Lusaka, Namwala Campaign Ban Expires Today

The 10 day suspension of campaigns in Lusaka and Namwala districts closes today with some noise expected back in the capital city.

Lusaka had quietened in the last 10 days following the suspension of campaigns that were turning violent raising alarm among some stakeholders.

The Electoral Commission of Zambia has repeatedly warned that candidates may be disqualified if the violent skirmishes continue.

ECZ acted swiftly after a UPND cadre was allegedly shot by the police in clashes caused by the party ignoring an order to cancel a scheduled rally due to security concerns.
