The UPND candidate in the Sesheke constituency by-election Romeo Kangombe has been declared duly-elected Member of Parliament for Sesheke with 35 polling stations counted out of 43, the Electoral Commission of Zambia has confirmed.

The youthful Kangombe garnered 7,768 votes from the 35 out of 43 polling stations counted, while the Patriotic Front’s Dean Musule was trailing with 3,297 votes.

Returning officer Joseph Kanyemba declared Kangombe winner of the bitterly contested seat, explaining that votes from 2,164 registered voters in the remaining eight polling stations will have no effect on the final result.

A total of 11, 419 people cast their votes in the by-election with 79 ballots being rejected.

Meanwhile, the ruling PF has scooped all the seven local government by-elections held in Chililabombwe, Lundazi, Chifunabuli, Kabwe, Chavuma, Katete and Isoka districts.

  1. There are times when intimidation no matter how, does not help.

  2. I hope Davis Mwila will live to regret. It was free election but bringing Bembas from Lusaka to beat up Lozis is the waste Mistake Davis Mwila has ever done. I call on Edgar Chagwa Lungu to quickly remove Davis Mwila for his position or else by 2020 Lungu will remember me.
    Davis Mwila is a psychatriac patient who needs psychiatrists to help him with his mind. He will make PF a big looser mind you and remember the Sesheke set is the turn over time for politics in Zambia. People wants change.
    Moreover stop witching paliamentarians from opposition strong holds for you to do byelections Mwila. Listen and listen very good. Stop this or else the lightening will come over your head next time. Lozis are peaceful but when constrained beyond the limit, They will react. Look at your cadres you moved from Lusaka, Criminals.
