Former Kasenegwa Member of Parliament Victoria Kalima has expressed confidence of being adopted by her party (MMD) and return her seat in the September 11th Kasenegwa Parliamentary by-election.
Speaking in an interview the former Parliamentarian whose seat was nullified by the Supreme Court said she did not finish the mandate which the people gave her in 2011 hence did not see any reason why people would vote for any one different as she needs to complete the projects that she started.
“I’m confident I will return my seat because as you know I got the highest number of votes in the country in 2011 with 87 percent of the total vote so I think my chances are high as long as my party adopts me and I’m confident the it will because they know that I need to complete my term.
” The voters have trust in me and I’m in good standing with traditional leaders in the constituency so I think I have high chance of returning my seat,” said Ms Kalima.
Kasenegwa is one of the 5 parliamentary seats that will go for elections after the Supreme Court ruled that 5 former Parliamentarians who were barred to stand by the High Court were eligible to stand.
