It’s Official: UPND, NDC Fail to Field Candidates in Kasenengwa

Three candidates have successfully filed their nomination for the September 6 Kasenengwa parliamentary by-election on a day that provided loads of drama with the UPND and NDC failing to file.

The candidates that successfully filed their nomination are the Patriotic Front’s Sensio Banda, John Zulu of the People’s Alliance for Change (PAC) and Abel Ngwenya of UPPZ.


UPND’s Dr Faustin Banda could not file his nomination after he failed to show up at the nomination centre at Chikungu Primary School.

Kasenengwa returning officer Noel Sichale declared the three as the only successful candidates around 15:00 hours.

Kasenengwa district electoral officer Mabvuto Masiye said the UPND indicated that it would bring a candidate during a stakeholders meeting but failed to do so.

He said at the close of the nomination there was no candidate that came from UPND although one representative of the party informed ECZ that they were expected to bring in a candidate but they did not do so until the close of the exercise.

UPND officials who were near the nomination centre left unceremoniously when it was clear that their no-show candidate would not file his nomination.

    Too bad to upnd and ndc. Too much talk but no action. Even 2021 do the same.

      The indicators of planning to jump high is to retreat, wait for 2021.it will be jumping forward not back wards ,when some one continues jumping forward now that he is almost tired and afraid of something coming from behind.HH will jump.

    “ONLY A TONGA MUST LEAD UPND” says Sejani. This is what happens when the party leadership is changing. HH has been at the helm of this tribal grouping since 2006 and the party has seen five presidential losses under his leadership. The party has not gone for any convention since then. UPND needs fresh blood with fresh ideas not HH and his blind MMC members, they are all finished. PF does not need even to campaign now or 2021 it is a foregone conclusion that they will win the elections

  16. Viva

    HahahahHa but sure UPND come 2021 pf

  17. Truth man

    UPND had only one chance to win the Presidential elections in Zambia, when the late Michael SATA passed away, and the ruling party was fighting for a leader to take over the reigns of Pf .However that chance slipped away due to inexperience and lack of leadership in the way the UPND handled the election exercise.The party needs to bring in, experienced politicians in order to survive.They must consult widely or else they will end up like the old ANC after Independence.To date, the party looks like someone groping in the dark.They suffer from lack of knowledge to strategize effectively and efficiently.


      wait and see PF IS WINNING 2021 we don’t want cattle to rule this country

  18. James Mphande

    intimidating the strong opposition political parties is worrying
    come 2021 will be a different issue altogether
    it happened with mmd so it shall be
    pf is turned into the worst ever

  26. Tembo Edward

    The end has started for the UPND

  27. Teshakuno

    Let’s not waste resources.

  28. Joseph.mwape

    We are going to convetion but still our presidential candidate will be no other than HH. GBM running mate. It’s only UPND which has credible readers to bring back the economy back were it’s suppose to be.

  29. FGM

    The tactics at play in the Zambian political arena are clearly indicating that Zambia is once more headed for a One Party State. Those with eyes can see where we are heading.

  30. Mulley X.

    Still doubting where we are heading, are you still asleep? Wake up and face the reality, don’t just support blindly on account of impressing one person due to his wealth, when the current Republican President stood as a presidential candidate, he had no money but because the majority Zambians are not in slamber they voted wisely. Even 2021 if the attitude of been self-centered will not be quenched out, am afraid some opposition parties will be on same and always crying bench. Insults, arrogance, bitterness, malice and envy always yields negative impact. So to those who are still dreaming, wake up and have a proper discernment. I love you all regardless of your political affiliations. One love
