Voter registration extended

THE Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has extended the mobile voter registration by seven days in districts where the exercise was suspended due to by-elections.
The by-elections were held on September 24, 2015 in Lubansenshi and Solwezi West constituencies and in nine wards across the country.
ECZ public relations manager Cris Akufuna said the seven day extension is from November 13 to 19.
Mr Akufuna said in a statement yesterday that other affected districts are Solwezi, Luwingu, Mwinilunga, Shangombo, Chilubi, Mulobezi, Sikongo, Lundazi, Lufwanyama and Chilanga.
Meanwhile, Immigration Department public relations officer Mubanda Chileshe has said 13 Zambians have been arrested for allegedly aiding foreigners to obtain or attempting to obtain the green national registration cards in contravention of Zambian laws.
