Today is filing of nominations for various candidates, that will be seeking to be elected by the electorates of Chilubi Constituency come February the 13th.
PF’s carefully and meticulously selected lethal campaign team has promised not only a resounding victory but a total annihilation of the opposition in the Constituency.
The ruling PF party’s Deputy National Mobilization Chairman Hon Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba popularly known as GBM earlier today declared that no stone will be left unturned.
“Our approach to this by election is simple, its hands on from today till we escort our candidate to Parliament. We shall cover the breadth and width of this vast Constituency, delivering our message; day and night!”
The Patriotic Front party is fielding the young vibrant and tenacious Mulenga Francis Fube, a bona fide son of Chilubi Constituency, born and bred, who due to his fervent desire to see development in the area, has over the years worked tirelessly in and around Chilubi.
A meek man so genuine that he is quick to point out that the task that lays ahead of him is extremely challenging but not insurmountable. Until recently, Fube was PF District Commissioner for Kaputa district.
The Opposition UPND on the other hand, has adopted retired teacher, Mr Stanislaus Chele, respected for his long serving career, many though, are of the view that he would have made a great Chilubi statesman, advising and helping the next generation owing to his advanced age of over 70years.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) will be represented by 58 year old undergrad Philosophy student, Mr Henry Mushimu Kalenga. For a party that denounces former MMD members ferociously, their adoption of Kalenga who is a former District Commissioner in the MMD administration has been termed as hypocritical.
Consisting of the Mainland, Swamps and Island, with 22 wards, 62 polling stations and over 40,000 registered voters, Chilubi Constituency is an enormous area yearning for energetic pragmatic and tested political leadership.
The electorates of Chilubi Constituency go to the polls on February 13th, to elect their new Member of Parliament after the untimely demise of Hon Rosario Fundanga last year.
