MEC Director of Media and Public Relations Sangwani Mwafulirwa further told a local newspaper on Tuesday that as elections are fast approaching, people should watch out for rumour mongers.

Said Mwafulirwa: “While not trivializing any allegation, people should be assured that our systems are robust and secure. Elections will not be rigged.
