The post 2016 election matters remain on the political menu with President Edgar Lungu extending the mandate for the Commission of Inquiry into the Voting Pattern and Electoral Violence for the period 2006 to 2016.
The Munalula Lisimba headed Commission of Inquiry has been extended to 31st December, 2018 to cover grounds within the remaining two provinces.
Addressing the media in Lusaka today, Commission Chairperson Munalula Lisimba said eight provinces had been covered so far in the exercise that commenced in the post 2016 election period.
The inquiry bordering on electoral violence and the voting pattern since 2006 was instigated by a highly divisive atmosphere during and after the 2016 elections.
Lisimba has also rubbished claims that the extension of the mandate is a money making venture clarifying that they do not accrue any allowances when they are not receiving submissions from members of the public.
