Malawians ready to vote in Zambian elections despite threats

171

Malawians have vowed to go to Zambia and vote during the country’s August 11 elections despite threats from Zambian politicians.

A Zambian newspaper, The Post, quoted village headman Chisamba of Mchinji who said he is ready to vote in the country’s elections arguing that Zambian authorities allowed him to register for the August 11 elections.

Chisamba and other Malawians showed the paper their Zambian registration cards and voter cards.

The villagers also hold Malawian voter cards.

Edgar Lungu

Edgar Lungu Zambia’s president faces stiff opposition from Hakainde Hichilema.

They claimed that Zambians also come to Malawi to vote hence what they are doing is not new.

However, a concerned Zambian has told Malawi24 that the Malawians are risking their lives since the situation in Zambia may not be as friendly to foreigners when the elections get closer.

The Zambian,  Chrissy Kanenga Matimba, said tempers in Zambia are already high due to the conduct of the country’s electoral body hence the issue of the foreigners will only add salt to the wound.

“Warn those that if they dare step into our nation with the intention to come and vote, they’ll do so at their own risk. This goes to all other foreigners that may have been duped and bribed to register as voters in our country, come at your own risk. You may live to learn what a Zambian is capable of doing if pushed to the extreme,” Matimba said.

Incumbent President Edgar Lungu faces a stiff challenge from main opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema in the presidential election on August 11.

  6. Please don’t take the relationship that we have enjoyed for granted and permitting you to stay in Zambia as foreigners doesn’t qualify you to take part in our partisan politics and if you were given a Zambian National ID card with the intention to vote, know that it was illegal. Please don’t try us all else you will see the other side of us. Don’t be so ignorant to get involved in the fighting that doesn’t belong to you because “wolamulira ndewo samabvula malaya” ayi.

  7. Please Achimwene AMalawi , I beg you in the name of Jesus, don’t take the relationship that we have enjoyed for granted. We Zambians are indeed experiencing some political tensions at the moment, so please don’t get involved. Permitting you to stay in our country as foreigners doesn’t qualify you to take part in our partisan politics. If you were given a Zambian National ID card with the intention to vote, know that it was illegal. Please don’t try us all else you will see the other side of us. Don’t spoil the soup and above all, don’t involve yourselves in the fighting that doesn’t belong to you. “Wolamulira ndewo sabvura malaya ayi”

  8. These are hot here Zed and you Malawian colleagues wont be granted Safety but we know that we are brothers and sisters until separated by colonialist but for this fight please excuse us as we are ready to sort out someone.

  14. What constitution allows them to vote in Zambia? Malawians are good at voting empty heads as their president, the same mentality wann transmit to Zambians, government must barry them from voting. Let them fix their Muntharika.

  18. If the constitution grants them chance to vote then I therefore,think no politician should be a block.Let them express themselves.That is if the time they spent in Zambia allows them understand Zambian affairs.Let them vote

  28. Stop this kind of foolish reporting. Zambians are free to choose the President of their choice. Let us not create animosity between nationalities of the two countries.
