ZCID COMMENDS POLITICAL PARTIES FOR PEACEFUL CAMPAIGNS IN THE MAYEMBE WARD BY-ELECTIONS.

 

WEDNESDAY, 24th JANUARY, 2023

The Zambia Centre for Interparty Dialogue (ZCID) has commended political parties for the peaceful campaigns that have characterized Mayembe Ward by-election in Shiwangโ€™andu District.

In a statement today, ZCID Executive Director Doreen Njovu-Kabwe expressed optimism that the peaceful environment exhibited during the campaign period will continue in future by-elections to enrich Zambiaโ€™s democratic credentials.
And Mrs. Kabwe noted that ZCID remains committed to promoting peace and stability in the country and has called on all parties to engage in dialogue to find a peaceful resolution to any disputes that may arise during and after the by-election.

She further called on parties to respect the rule of law and to take all necessary measures to protect civilians and safeguard public infrastructure in areas where by-elections are taking place.

โ€œZCID is confident that the people of Mayembe have exercised their democratic right to vote. The by-election was necessitated following the resignation and withdrawal of the area Ward Councilor.โ€ Mrs. Kabwe said
