The National Democratic Congress(NDC) has shunned Chishimba Kambwili’s preferred candidate and adopted a Mr. Joseph Chishala as its candidate for the upcoming by-election in Roan Constituency.
Kambwili had floated his son, Mwamba Kambwili but the NDC Central Committee decided to pick another candidate.
The Roan Seat fell vacant when the Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Patrick Matibini declared the seat vacant because Kambwili crossed the floor.
Chishala aged 39 has lived in Luanshya for over 30 years.
NDC has also appointed MCC Menyani Zulu as the campaign manager, Elisha Matambo UPND Copperbelt Provincial Chairman as Campaign Manager and Charles Kabwita as the Deputy Campaign Manager.
Voting in the Roan constituency parliamentary by election takes place on April 11th next month.
