Share

The Party for National Unity and Progress (PNUP) has scooped the Nalolo Parliamentary seat in Western Province.

PNUP’s Wamunyima Imanga got 8, 666 votes, against Patriotic Front (PF)’s Enock Mundia who got 5, 484 votes.

Kwibisa Lubinda of the Democratic Party (DP) was third with 1, 646 and Socialist Party (SP)’s Chinyama Chinyama came fourth with 857 votes.

Meanwhile, the newly elected MP Wamunyima Imanga has called on the people of Nalolo to put politics aside and start developing Nalolo Constituency together.

“Our campaigns were not centered on promises but on service delivery through teamwork hence this is the time to start our developmental projects,” he said.

Mr. Imanga has since encouraged his opponents to put politics aside and move forward in delivering the development agenda.

Nalolo constituency Returning Officer Inambao Mukela declared Wamunyima Imanga this afternoon as duly elected Member for Parliament for Nalolo Constituency.

And PNUP’s National Chairperson Kamuti Kamwenga has encouraged the Party president Highvie Hamududu not to lose hope but focus on growing the party.

Mr. Kamuti said even the late republican president Michael Sata started with one MP when the Patriotic Front was formed.

“Producing one Member of Parliament is a great achievement to us and this has encouraged us to work even harder in expanding the party,” he said.

Meanwhile United Party for National Development (UPND)’s Kolyokolyo Limakazo has scooped the council chairperson seat for Nalolo district council.

UPND’s Limakazo got 13,044 votes while Mubita Siyumbwa of PF who came out second got 3,463 and Socialist Party’s Muhongo Mbanga got 327 votes.

  1. This has removed the monotonous song of PF/UPND by having a PNUP honourable

    Surprisingly, the Council Chairman got more ballots than the Member of Parliament did.

  2. Well done Highvie – keep on going! The MMD was once the largest party and has almost disappeared, the same will happen with the PF now, leaving plenty space for you!

  3. I am sure that this being a rural constituency many confused PNUP to UPND. All the same adding diversity in parliament!

  4. I dont know why these guys like Kalaba, Fred, Sean Tembo waste ECZ fees standing for Presidential position when they can stand as MP represent their party in Parliament build on that. I know what is going happen here Highvie Hamududu’s MP will get big headed and will cut his own deals in Parliament.

  5. CONGRATULATIONS FOR THE SEAT ITS A GOOD STEP FOR OUR DEMOCRACY. SOON PF WILL GO INTO EXTINCTION. DAVIES MWILA SHOULD NOT CRY FOUL, HE IS A BIG LIABILITY TO DEMOCRACY.
