Kafue District Commissioner, Grace Ngulube has called on civil servants in the district to serve the communities instead of getting involved in politics.
Ms Ngulube said civil servants should resign if they want to participate in political issues.
The DC said this when some Mtendere residents in Kafue stormed her office to issue a complaint over the slow pace of the National Registration Card (NRC) replacement process in the District.
Ms Ngulube said those found wanting will face the wrath of the law.
She has since directed the district registrar Moris Kalimukwa to ensure that people with required documents are attended to and appointment dates should not be after 19th January to enable more people replace their NRCs.
And one of the residents Rude Mwansa accused the registration officers in the district of violating their right to vote.
She added that the officers gave an appointment of 29th January 2015 which is after elections a situation which will disadvantage her and other affected people from participating in January 20 elections.
Meanwhile, the district registrar has denied the allegations stating that some people were given appointments for NRC replacements after January 19, 2015.
Mr. Kalimukwa said the period for appointments is meant to verify the applicants status as most of them got their initial registration cards from various places outside Kafue district.
He assured the DC that his office will work hard to ensure that more people replace their NRCs to enable them participate in the January 20 2015 elections.
