The Electoral Commission (EC) has described as complete falsehood claims in a viral video suggesting that the Commission has denied security agencies the opportunity to register in the special voting exercise.
The special voting exercise is scheduled for Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
A statement by the election management body called on the public to disregard contents of the video.
It explained that a few names on the special voters’ register went missing due to the submission of wrong ID card numbers.
“It is important to note that a few persons submitted wrong ID card numbers. Unfortunately, those persons were not reflected on the Special Voters Register as their ID cards were invalid. Some of these applicants submitted the ID numbers of the old voters’ ID card.”
