Voting in the Mufumbwe by-election is underway with an average voter turnout.

Polling stations opened at exactly 06 hours and the first voter cast his vote at Kyamwina Polling Station at exactly 06:05 hours.

Voter turnout at most polling stations in the Central Business Area has been quiet impressive as scores of people continue trooping to polling stations in large numbers to cast their vote.

However in the rural parts of the district, voter turnout has been relatively low but is slowly and surely building up.

Meanwhile, Forum for Democratic Process (FODEP) Executive Director MacDonald Chipenzi expressed happiness with the voter turnout especially in town.

Mr. Chipenzi told ZANIS in an interview that it is imperative that people turn up in masses to vote for their preferred candidate.

He however hoped that voter turnout in the rural parts of the constituency would improve as the day progresses.

The Mufumbwe seat is being contested by Steven Masumba of the ruling Patriotic Front (PF), Stanford Mulusa of the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) and Stephen kamwengo of the United Nation for Independence Party (UNIP).

Voting ends at exactly 18 hours.


  1. In a democracy like ours the winner is declared after counting the votes. Therefore, let us wait for the process to finish theN we can tell who the winner is.

  2. Zambian journalists never cease to amaze me…this is where you are supposed to give data on the number of registered voters, bla, bla, bla…
