The Electoral Commission of Zambia has set 11th April, 2019 as the date on which to hold the Parliamentary, and Local Government by-elections in Bahati Constituency of Mansa District in Luapula Province and Roan Constituency of Luanshya District on the Copperbelt Province.

The Commission will on the same date also conduct 7 Local Government By-elections in Chinyanja Ward of Kabwe District, Makunku Ward of Itezhi-tezhi District, Chilyapa Ward of Mansa District, Lengelengenda Ward of Chavuma District, Mfinshe Ward of Mungwi District, Muyondoti Ward of Mitete District, and Muchinga Ward of Chama District.

The By-elections in Bahati and Roan Constituencies have been necessitated following the expulsion of incumbent Bahati Member of Parliament Harry Kalaba on Monday 28th January,2019 and the crossing of the floor of Dr. Chishimba Kambwili to National Democratic Congress as declared by the Speaker of the National Assembly Dr. Patrick Matibini on 27th February 2019.

Meanwhile, the vacancies in Chinyanja Ward, Makunku Ward, Chilyapa Ward, Lengelengenda Ward, Mfinshe Ward, Muyondoti Ward and Muchinga Ward are as a result of resignations and death of councillors.

This is contained in a statement issued to the media by Electoral Commission of Zambia Public Relations Manager Margret Chimanse.

    • Your own gorilla is scared and has started a challenge. For all most care for now let them pick there choice and never complain about the situation. It the only fair way. Doesn’t matter if its PF,NDC UPND or anything its okay as long as people accept and also accept there fate.

      Thanks

  1. Here comes violence to your respective towns, PFoools will ship cadres from all over, govt employees should expect late salaries in May as the PFoools will be paying cadres to throw stones with funds meant for salaries…. Chipante pante govt run by drunks and Kaponya`s

  2. UPND show us how you are the most popular party in Zambia today as you claim!!Recall Roan and Bahati constituencies are not in a bantu botatwe area.These two constituencies are purely in PF strongholds where HH’s UPND has never won since 2006!!
    The fact is whether HH camps in Roan or Bahati for the whole 60 days or teams up with Kambwili’s NDC ,HH’s UPND will 100% lose there on 11/04/2019!!!If you doubt me,go and ask GBM who thought Kasama Central was his personal seat until he was taught a bitter leason in 2016!!!We hear CK has rushed to Court again,A CLEAR SIGN THAT KAMBWILI KNOWS PF WILL RETAIN THIS SEAT 100% BUT CK DOES NOT WANT TO BE EMBARRASSED NOW!!!

    • neither PF nor UPND is popular in Roan and Bahati.
      People want Kambwili and Kalaba back in parliament to expose these two *****ic thuggish parties.
      This is end of two corrupt persons who have been stealing from hard working citizens.

  3. #Jonny:you prophets of doom camped in a regional party UPND should know that there will be no violence in Roan and Bahati like it was in Sesheke and civil servants will be paid their April salaries.Besides,Copperbelt police commissioner,Mrs Charity Katanga is a no nonsense officer whom even known violent cadres or politicians fear,so they wont misbehave.Plus,UPND cadres are few in those two constituencies,so they cant be violent in areas dominated by PF followers because if they did,they risk being outnumbered and defeated.History shows us that severe violence only occurs in UPND strongholds.Yes,minor crushes by political cadres can happen in Roan or Bahati but IT WONT BE LIKE VIOLENCE WAS IN SESHEKE-MARK MY WORDS!!!

  4. Delayed salaries again and more violence just for one seat. Greedy PF would rather see bloody shed than lose just one seat, pangas and guns will be given to cadres to intimidate the opposition and voters

  5. Another shocking news in Zambia holding elections yet brings no development to people in Zambia. All these places where elections will be held experience poverty beyond imagination. Civil servants, teachers including state journalists salaries go unpaid, while PF come up with money to brutalise people before voting – poor Zambians are cheap expendables to feed the dictatorship of Lungu.
