The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has expressed disappointment with reports of alleged malpractice and incidents of violence that characterized poll day the Katuba Parliamentary by-election.

ECZ Acting Public Relations Manager, Sylvia Bwalya, has told QFM News in a statement that violence during elections contributes to apathy among electorates.

Ms Bwalya says it is important that all political parties abide by the electoral code of conduct to avoid negative consequences that may arise from abrogating the law.

Ms Bwalya has appealed to political parties to exercise patience, restraint and tolerance in future by-elections.

Ms Bwalya has also clarified that the delay in the declaration of the results for Katuba Parliamentary by-elections was due to the challenge in receiving the results in three polling stations.

She explains that the Zambia Air Force (ZAF) helicopter that was contracted to provide logistics in the three polling stations was unable to access the three polling stations early this morning due to bad weather.

Ms Bwalya has since commended the media for fair and balanced coverage of candidates during the campaigns leading up to the Katuba parliamentary by-elections.
