The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has set February 12, 2019 as the date for the Sesheke Parliamentary by election. The commission will also conduct 7 Local Government by election in Chililabombwe, Kabwe, Lundazi, Katete, Chifunabuli Isoka and Chavuma districts.

The by-election in Sesheke has been necessitated by the death of Member of Parliament Frank Kufakwandi. The Vacancies in the Seven Local Government by elections have come as a result of resignations and death of councillors.

Ms. Chimanse added that aspiring candidates for the Parliamentary By-election in Sesheke Constituency should take along with them fifteen (15) supporters who must be registered voters in the respective District or Constituency. The supporters must have in their possession their Green National
Registration Cards and Voters’ Cards. Aspiring candidates for the Parliamentary By-elections will be required to pay Seven Thousand, Five Hundred Kwacha (K7,500.00), non-refundable nomination fee.

Aspiring candidates in the Local Government By-elections should take along with them nine (9) supporters who must be registered voters in the affected wards. Aspiring candidates will be required to pay Seven Hundred and fifty Kwacha (K750.00), for City and Municipal Councils and Four Hundred Kwacha (K400.00) for District Councils, non-refundable nomination fee.

  1. Very good at setting by election dates, the only thing you good at is wriggling your waists , no idea on how to fix the economy.

  2. “She said candidates in the parliamentary and the local Government by-elections must also present their certified copies of their Grade 12 certificates or equivalent or higher qualification, which must be verified by the Examination Council of Zambia or the Zambia Qualification Authority respectively.”
    We know GBM has no Grade 12 certificate hence the mumble jumble to allow him and Chishimba Kambwili participate. Under this ambiguity they’re even able to present those fake paid honorary ‘doctorates’. Ideally we had put the Grade 12 requirement in the Constitution to prevent imbeciles from ascending to power.

    • Yes GBM is an imbecile. Kambwili is a retard. They are both ‘Doctors’. Kainde accepts both turds to hang around his circles. When you surround yourself with SHlT the flies don’t differentiate because you also smell like SHlT

  3. If UPND fail to win in Sesheke and Chavuma,then they may get zero seat from those 8 seats mentioned above!!!

    IN ECL’S PF WE BELIEVE!!!AM PRETTY SURE THAT MIGHTY PF WILL GRAB MOST OF THESE SEATS ON 15/02/2019!!Indeed,we need a by election in Roan so that neckless Kambwili can be embarrassed like GBM was shamed in Kasama Central!!!Good luck Mighty PF
