ECZ Sets Sept 6 as Poll Day for Kasenengwa By-election

The Electoral Commission has finally set the date for the Kasenegwa by-election and five other wards.

Electoral commentator MacDonald Chipenzi had pointed out the possible lapse to the ECZ.

The Kasenengwa seat fell vacant following the death of the incumbent Victoria Kalima in June.

FULL STATEMENT:

The Electoral Commission of Zambia -ECZ- has set Thursday, September 6 2018, as date for the Kasenegwa parliamentary by-election.

ECZ Public Relations Manager Margaret Chimanse also says the ECZ will conduct local government by-elections in Kamalamba, Liyovu, Mabili, Nkenyauna and Shikombwe wards.

Ms. Chimanse has advised aspiring candidates to lodge in completed nomination papers on Thursday, August 9th, 2018.

    What about in Kalomo district, Dimbwe ward? The councillor was convicted by Choma magistrate court for One year and six months last year in December,2017 but to date no bye election has taken place, why?

    It’s a move orchestrated by PF to mislead the UPND into believing that the Western Province is still its strong hold. Peaceful campaigns.
