Mandevu Member of Parliament Jean Kapata has observed that Zambian people still have confidence in the ruling party because it has continued to fulfil its promises.

Ms. Kapata, who is also Tourism and Arts Minister, thanked the people of Chawama, Masaiti and Senga Hill constituencies for electing Patriotic Front (PF) candidates in yesterday’s parliamentary by-elections.

She told the Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) in Lusaka today that the victory, which the PF registered, was an indication that the ruling party’s popularity was growing not only in the three constituencies but in the rest of the country.

Ms. Kapata has since assured the people in the three constituencies that government will continue delivering its promises for their benefit.

She has meanwhile thanked the political parties which took part in the three parliamentary by-elections for their spirited fight.

And United Party for National Development (UPND) said it has penetrated most of the areas which previously were viewed as stronghold of the ruling party.

Party Deputy Secretary General Kachunga Simusamba said although the UPND lost the Chawama, Masaiti and Senga Hill parliamentary seats, it emerged as the second best contender.

Mr. Simusamba said this was a true testimony that the UPND will form government in 2016.

He said UPND has penetrated most of the areas where it previously had no support.
He cited Copperbelt, Northern and Lusaka provinces as some of the areas where UPND was gaining ground.

Mr. Simusamba however, stated that the UPND won almost all local government seats in Western and few seats in Eastern Provinces.

He said this was good for the party as it was a testimony that it was a force to reckon with.

Mr. Simusamba has meanwhile congratulated the PF for its victory in Chawama, Masaiti and Senga Hill parliamentary by-elections.

The ruling PF has scooped all the three parliamentary seats following a by-election that was held yesterday.

In Chawama, PF candidate Lawrence Sichalwe was declared winner after polling 7, 502 while UPND’s Charles Kaselwa got 3, 219.

In Masaiti, PF’s Michael Katambo polled 5,032 votes against his closest rival Peter Mumba of the UPND who managed to get 2,150 votes while an independent candidate, Lyton Mokola was third with a paltry 41 votes.

UNIP’s candidate Lason Musumali was fourth with 36 votes while 4th Revolution party candidate Mobby Mutaya received only 16 votes.
A total of 92 votes were rejected.

Mr. Katambo, who held the seat under MMD before it was nullified by the courts of law due to electoral malpractice, was declared winner of the Masaiti seat at exactly 04:30 hours this morning by returning officer Modest Simuntala.

The voter turnout was poor as only 7,367 people cast their ballots against 26,362 registered voters in Masaiti constituency.

UPND representatives quickly conceded defeat while other political parties did not show up at the totaling centre.

Meanwhile, Mr. Katambo has thanked both the PF and MMD members for ensuring that he wins.
He has since dedicated the victory to President Edgar Lungu.

In Senga Hill constituency, PF’s Kapembwa Simbao polled 7,815 votes while UPND candidate Giles Yambayamba got 4,570 votes.

    • Skeleton: If you really leave in Zambia you will not say the economic is rotting. My friend people from all over Africa are flocking into Zambia at the moment. If you fly through RSA O.R TAMBO Airport, they will tell you how many flights are coming into Zambia per week and all these flights are fully booked. And here we are as Zambians saying the economic is rotting. Please wake up.

  2. Well your popularity Online continues to decline and UPND’s popularity on social media , blogs , TV and any other form of online media continue to be a rising star. As to which popularity one would rather have rising, I leave that to the masses to judge

    • U5 four times loser is the president for online media blog party. On these sites he has a lot of support more than that of Obama Kikikik. His cadres are now confident that come 2016 U5 will be president. Truth of the matter is that people are at the grass root are more wiser than the so called elites. You can’t build a party with non voters and hope to win an election.

  3. “Truth of the matter is that people are at the grass root are more wiser than the so called elites. You can’t build a party with non voters and hope to win an election.” It’s like you want to open a barber shop in the village of rastas.
    hh is really under five

  4. Ba Kuchunga naimwe ikaleni fye ngatamukwete fyakulanda. In January your president won the presedintial election via muvi tv and watch dog DOGS before ballots were cast. When the actual polls came aiminepo nebolo lyakwe nangu nga pakunya. Nothing will change in 2016. In fact it will be worse for you because you failed to win when PF was embroiled in those GUY SCOT (cartel) made problems. You think Edgar is foolish to let you win in 2016 when the entire GRZ machine is under his armpit.

  5. the Mighty PF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you cant beat them join them please mwebantu…………..Ifintu Ni Lungu na ku heaven story izi bika.

  6. PF bane niziiiiiiiii. Popularity ni pa ku vota fye. Elections shows the popularity of a party. Just join us PLEASE

  7. Which promises is Kapata referring to here.
    1. more money in the pockets – false since the BoZ is implementing OMO to reduce liquidity in the economy as a way of fighting inflation. This implies failure by most people to meet their daily needs while the things they need the most are on the shelves in shops
    2. More jobs – a bad story
    3. Infrastructure development – at the expense of the future generation through borrowing even on behalf of other countries
    4. Constitution within 90 days – another heaven on earth promise
    5. smaller govt – 3 deputies in some ministries

    Which promises, other than more money in your pockets madam minister?

    • RB BUSY KOLOPALING PF

      OPEN YOUR***** EYES AND SEE THAT TAPALI ICENU
      RB RULING YOU

  8. People are hungry and this is politics of eating, of the belly and not of real economic issues. Flies go where something is rotting. That does not imply the rot is producing a good smell. So let the “Mini Star” not misleading herself. Some Road Contractors have performed poorly and they risky being penalised for squandering the public funds hence the only thing to do for the time being is to give fake praise and show blind loyalty even when they dont agree with the PF policies that are causing economic hardships. Zambians never Lear and they are too short sighted both at individual level and national level. It will be too late once they realise the wrong choices they are making. There is a message in the voter apathy…..be careful!

  9. Truth be told about 4times loser U5 that his popularity only exist on on line media and not at the grass root level. To make matters worse his supporters on these sites are too sarcastic to the core making U5 look like hes a leader of insane people. Honestly how do you claim popularity based on the non voters. It’s like opening a cinema in a village for the blind people. Kikikikiki

  10. Well it is a game of evidence, right now, you have it with you. Be humble in victory because one week is a long time in office. Politics is such that you can be enjoying an extreme high right before an extreme low hits you!

  11. It is good that PF has won the votes so that when 2016 comes they will not give us excuses of not having delivered well their promises because of the opposition’s influence. There you have it we simply say congratulation to you. This happened when MMD took over the government from UNIP and who new that at one time they will walk with their necks and faces bended down. People want development and not the people we are just mentioning here and there. Mind you the same people who are in PF now were once in UNIP, MMD and today they call themselves PF. Tomorrow they shall call themselves either UPND or FDD etc. So work while its day time before the night falls on you and say kanshi bwaila.

  12. I feel sorry for tribal HH and his cadres who are mostly tongas!!!i can imagine how bad they’re feeling in Monze (my wife’s home town) today!! I have always said that as long as voting pattern continues this way,then HH must forget about winning in 2016!!before 2011 people wanted change of Govnt and PF under Sata were winning by elections in MMD’s strongholds.this is not the case with UPND!we can simply say that PF will get almost all seats in Lusaka,Eastern,Copperbelt,Luapula,Northern,Muchinga and bemba speaking areas of central province.Congrats PF!!IFINTU NI LUNGU 2016!!!

  13. U5 followers lolo lolo lolo,not long ago you were mocking HIV patients wishing them death,forgetting that they have an organisation,you always insult ba chakolwa forgetting that they are the best decision makers and you cant convice them when they say NO,you insult kaponyaz forgetting that they know how to mobilise themselves and come up with one decision,illiterates are fools forgetting that they are the majority in rural areas.Now you want their votes how?they also have brains mind you…..plz change your campaign formula otherwise you ll remain PERPETUAL LOSERS…mark my words
