Particulars of the offence are that in June, 2016 at Chirundu District, Southern Province of the republic of Zambia, Mr Chongo being a member of a panel constituted by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to recruit poll staff for the 2016 Referendum and General elections, did fail to declare interest in writing to the said panel and participated in the recruitment process in which his son Cedrick Mwenya was an applicant.
