Appeal for ballot box to be returned

The Electoral Commission (IEC) has appealed to the citizens in and around uMhlathuze Ward 14, in KwaZulu-Natal, to be on the lookout for an IEC branded ballot box, which went missing in transit from the voting station at Matamzana Dube School to the municipal electoral office for storage. 
“The ballots in the box have been counted, reconciled, and validated. The Electoral Commission is required, by law, to store ballots cast in general elections for a period of six months. 
“Furthermore, the IEC appeals to anyone who finds the ballot box to return it to us,” said the commission said in a statement.
The IEC reminded South Africans that anyone found to be in possession of ballots was liable to criminal prosecution. – SAnews.gov.za
