ACC urges free and fair elections

Luangwa, January 12, 2015, ZANIS . . . . . . . . . The Anti- Corruption Commission (ACC) has warned against  electoral malpractices if the country was to have free and fair elections in next week’s Presidential elections.

ACC Senior Community Education Officer Rebecca Mulengwa made the call during a series of sensitization meetings held in Luangwa district warning that electoral malpractices such as corruption and other illegal practices could negatively affect the smooth running of elections.

ZANIS reports that Ms. Mulengwa said electoral corruption if tolerated could lead to voting into office corrupt leaders thereby compromising democracy in the country.

She told the electorates to be aware of  electoral corruption and other malpractices which could occur at any stage of the electoral process such as during election campaigns, voter registration and voting among many others.

Ms. Mulengwa said electorates should choose their leaders based on the integrity of a particular candidate and not on what they give them adding that giving and receiving something from political parties to induce them to vote for a particular candidate was an offence and if found guilty a person was  liable upon conviction to a fine or imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years or to both.

She urged the electorates to avoid electoral corruption and other electoral malpractices if Zambia’s democracy was to be enhanced.

And people in Luangwa district have commended the Anti- Corruption Commission (ACC) for embarking on the sensitization programme as it has equipped them with knowledge on electoral corruption and other malpractices which people engage into during elections.

Deputy Headman for Chilukushya A, Michael Nyanga commended the ACC for sensitizing people on  electoral corruption and urged the Commission to embark on such programmes so that people were aware of what corruption is and its resultant evil.

The ACC team was in Luangwa district to conduct a series of sensitization meetings with public service workers and members of the public on electoral corruption and related malpractices .

Luangwa District Commissioner Eunie Mumba also commended the ACC for the initiative and appealed for more of such sensitization meetings if electoral court petitions were to be avoided.

  1. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy.

    I have read this put up and if I may I desire to counsel you some interesting issues or
    suggestions. Perhaps you can write next articles relating to this article.

    I want to read more issues about it!

  3. It happens to be more difficult to execute because the campaign needs to appeal to professionals and corporations that hold interest in a product or a service.
    This is a big boost from the strategic point of view.
    Now if someone doesnt use the power of Facebook for their online marketing wouldnt it be a crazy idea.

  4. Find all the newest new and Movie Reviews at Movie Vault.
    High-profile actor Brad Pitt, one of the world’s most attractive men has received vigorous media attention during his 24-year-old onscreen career.
    This movie, directed by the great Otto Preminger is a courtroom drama of a murder
    trial in which a lieutenant in the army is charged with murdering a bar owner who had raped the lieutenant’s wife.

  5. There has to be a video file open in Movie Maker for this option to
    be available, otherwise it will be greyed out. As with all love
    affairs, there were some bumps in the road. Ajay’s performance was appreciated in both the movies.

  6. A quality juicer that works well at lower speeds
    is the ideal type to look for. It comes with several features such as the following:.
    Fruits with high amount of citric acid should be consumed in moderation.

  7. In this the fruit and vegetables are first ground and then the juice is forwarded with the help of a strainer which revolves at a very high rpm.

    Most high functioning juicers will cost somewhere in the range of $200 to $2,000.
    When compared to a centrifugal juicer, you will see that the juices from this masticating juicer are much darker because of the way it extracts
    all parts of the vegetable instead of just the juice.

  8. A quality juicer that works well at lower speeds
    is the ideal type to look for. The quality of juice obtained
    from an orange juice extractor is not the same as what is mass-produced and sold in stores.
    Or would you rather go for low motor speed that
    will produce a more quiet juicing process.
