——————-Ndola City Council has dispelled rumours that some polling assistants have not been paid for work done during the Presidential by-election.
Ndola City Council Public Relations Manager Roy Kuseka said all polling assistants were paid cash and that no one was promised to be paid through their account.
‘’The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) deposited money for all the polling assistants in some account and all payments were done through cash to individual polling assistants and not through the bank,’’ he said.
He revealed this in an interview with ZANIS in Ndola today.
Mr. Kuseka revealed that the rumour going on is false and warned that people should not dent the image of the Council by making false statements.
Some people who worked as polling assistants in Ndola during the elections alleged that they were told to leave their account details and that money would be sent to them but they did not receive any payment as expected.
