DDC machines thieves are wasting their time -Zinox Boss

Chairman of Zinox Technologies, Mr Leo Stan Ekeh, has said that political miscreants or thieves, who made away with some DDC machines before or during the voter registration exercise are wasting their time, because they do not stand a chance of influencing the outcome of the 2011 elections.

He stated that the raw data currently being collected by the machines would still be merged by servers in the custody of (INEC).

According to the chairman of the company that supplied 80, 000 of the DDC machines while answering questions on the voters registration on an Africa Independent Television (AIT) programme tagged Kaakaki on Monday, “these servers would detect and nullify multiple registrations, unaccounted registrations from stolen machines and other manipulations.”

Mr Ekeh further explained that the delays experienced at the registration centres were not caused by the hardware but by the software.

He said the scanners, for example were calibrated by INEC to achieve a high resolution of the finger prints and this led to initial delays that INEC has swiftly rectified.

He also faulted the way some of the machines were handled saying “that the DDC equipment was installed out there in the dusty harmattan and the hot sun, conditions that would wear down most electronic appliances.”

Moreover, he pointed out that these machines are run 10 hours at a stretch on batteries, an unusual contraption in most parts of the world.
