The United Party for National Development (UPND) youths this afternoon handed over to Police a suspected PF cadre they accused of distributing money to voters in Kapinjimpanga Ward in Solwezi central.
UPND Youth Spokesperson Gilbert Liswaniso has told QFM News in a telephone interview that the suspect was among fifteen suspected PF cadres spotted distributing Chitenge materials and money to voters at Kibale polling station in Kapinjimpanga Ward.
Mr. Liswaniso says it is unfortunate that such acts were happening on the voting day when all political parties had about 24 days to do their campaigns.
He says there is need to allow the people to vote freely without influencing them with the dishing out of material things which is against the electoral code of conduct.
Mr. Liswaniso has since appealed to the relevant authorities to take up the matter and investigate it thoroughly.
