Zambians stream to polls after campaign tests stability

Hundreds of people queue to vote at a polling station in Lusaka during Zambia's general elections on August 11, 2016Zambians streamed to the polls Thursday to choose a new president after a closely-fought election campaign marred by “unprecedented” violence that has threatened the country’s relative stability. President Edgar Lungu, who narrowly won office last year in a snap election, faces another strong challenge from his main rival Hakainde Hichilema in a field of nine candidates. At least three people were killed during this year’s campaign, with regular clashes erupting between supporters of Lungu’s Patriotic Front (PF) and Hichilema’s United Party for National Development (UPND).
