Data collated by Zibani Zambia show an increased turnout of potential voters registering in Chadiza District of Eastern Province over the last 5 days with a total of 5,202 voters registering in the last 5 days.
According to data gathered by our 2021 Zambia Decides Journalists in Chadiza, the first day of voter registration recorded 679 voters on the first day while Day 5 recorded a highest turnout of 1,267 voters.
Zibani Zambia is however concerned with the competence of some registration officers at some of the 15 polling stations where registration is taking place which is contributing to the slow pace of registering voters.
By press time the Electoral Commission of Zambia could not clarify on how some registration officers were picked even though they have serious difficulties in handling the registration equipment.
The registration in Chadiza is going on at Kalemba Primary School, Zingalume Primary School, Chilenge Primary School, Ngala Primary School, among others.
