Party Officials Attacked in Ntchisi Over ID Collecting Allegations

There was chaos at Ntchisi boma on Saturday as angry people wanted to attack some United Democratic Front (UDF) and Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials in the district over allegations that they have been collecting National identity cards from youths.

The people are connecting the alleged exercise by the party to issues relating to the upcoming elections and they went to the houses of the officials of the two parties demanding the IDs back and peace was restored after police intervened.

One of the youths in the district who claims his ID was collected told us that a team from the 2 parties asked him to submit his ID number for loan processing.

A senior DPP official in the district said officials from the party's regional office should come and investigate the claims as the rumours of collecting the IDs might be true but those who are involved are not doing that for the party's interest.

Meanwhile, UDF spokesperson, Ken Ndanga has told Zodiak online that the allegations are not true and that some parties are coming up with the rumours just to create tension.
