quick update from the Lusaka Times…
Electoral Commission of Zambia chairperson Irene Mambilima threatened to resign on Thursday prior to the announcement of the election results.
ECZ sources have told QFM that some former ruling MMD officials were pressurizing the ECZ chairperson not to announce the election results.
Some MMD officials are said to have pressurized Justice Mambilima not to announce the election results when it became clear that the former ruling party was losing the elections.
The MMD camp was broken following the defeat in the presidential election which has left the former party in pieces, with its future bleak.
