Masumba defeated MMD’s Stafford Mulusa after votes from well over 30 polling stations had given the PF candidate a comfortable lead.
Sources in the MMD campaign team also confirmed the defeat saying the PF breached the electoral code even on election day.
The MMD sources disclosed that they tallied the votes from all polling stations and indications were that Masumba had won.
Electoral Commission of Zambia officials will announce the final results this morning the PF had by the last count polled 7,299 while the MMD had 5,223 votes counted representing a margin of over 1500 ballots cast.
Masumba is expected to be declared winner. There are indications that the MMD will petition the election so that it could bring to the fore evidence of irregularities by the ruling party.
