THE Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has lifted the suspension of Chishimba Kambwili.
Mr Kambwili was suspended from participating in any campaign activities in line with paragraph 11(i) (d) of the Electoral Code of Conduct.
ECZ Corporate Affairs Manager, Patricia Luhanga, said Mr Kambwili has shown remorse through the apology he rendered to the Commission and his conduct during the time of his suspension.
“Arising from this, the Commission would like to inform the media and members of the public that it has lifted the suspension of Mr Chishimba Kambwili effective midnight today.
“Mr Kabwili is further advised to use appropriate language when conducting any campaigns,” she said.
The ECA noted that use of language which incites hatred or violence in any form against any person and shall not be tolerated as it contravenes the provisions of the Electoral Code of Conduct.
The suspension was due to Mr Kambwili’s failure to adhere to the Electoral Code of Conduct, particularly, the use of hate speech and holding of campaign rallies despite the guidance provided.
Ms Luhanga also said the ECZ was investigating other matters reported in various districts and that the findings and decision would be made public.
