Lungu toasts PF victory

PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has thanked the people of Lukashya and Mwansabombwe for voting for Patriotic Front (PF) candidates in Thursday’s by-elections.

Mr Lungu also congratulated Mr George Chisanga and Mr Kabaso Kapampi for emerging victorious in Lukanshya and Mwansabombwe constituencies respectively.
In a statement issued by his special assistant for press and public relations Issac Chipampe, Mr Lungu said the two victories showed that people still believed in the PF government’s development agenda.
“These victories arising from the unfortunate loss of two lives of wonderful souls were also a litmus test for the party’s popularity in Northern and Luapula provinces. Now that we have won the two seats, it shows that our people in the two regions believe in our developmental agenda,” President Lungu said.
The President also urged the two new Members of Parliament not to let the people from two constituencies down.
“Work hard in the remaining few months before the general elections. Don’t let the people down, justify why you won, “he said.
And President Lungu thanked the people of Kalengwa, Mwinyilamba, Kandombe, Kasongo, Lunyiwe, Chibanga and Machinga wards for voting for the PF.
He also congratulated the United Party for National Development for winning the other five ward by-elections.
