Daily Nation Newspaper - - Home News - By NA­TION RE­PORTER

PA­TRI­OTIC Front has adopted Humphrey Nzunda, 24, as its can­di­date for Nkombwa Ward Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment by-elec­tion in Isoka slated for Fe­bru­ary 12, 2019.

Isoka Con­stituency PF chair­per­son Alex Muma said in an in­ter­view yes­ter­day that Mr Nzunda was picked out of five other ap­pli­cants.

Mr Muma said all rel­e­vant PF struc­tures from ward to pro­vin­cial com­mit­tees sup­ported Mr Nzunda’s can­di­da­ture for the Nkombwa ward by-elec­tion.

He said he was con­fi­dent that the PF would re­tain the seat. ‘‘We are con­fi­dent that our can­di­date is the best among the rest and he has the nec­es­sary skills to de­liver to the peo­ple of Nkombwa ward. This by elec­tion will be a walk over for the PF be­cause we have de­liv­ered on most prom­ises in that ward and we are still com­mit­ted to do more, there­fore, peo­ple of Nkombwa will vote for our can­di­date,’’ Mr Muma said.

He said Mr Nzunda was a grass root per­son who was fa­mil­iar with the chal­lenges the peo­ple faced in the ward.

The PF had de­liv­ered most of the cam­paign prom­ise such con­struc­tion of health post, drilling of bore­holes and grad­ing of feeder roads, among other de­vel­op­ment projects, in the area, he said. He urged the PF mem­bers who were not adopted to re­main loyal to the party and cam­paign for Mr Nzunda.

‘’My ap­peal to those ap­pli­cants that have not been adopted is to re­main loyal to the party and wait for your time.

We can only have one can­di­date at a time and let us help the adopted can­di­date in en­sur­ing that PF re­tains the Nkombwa lo­cal gov­ern­ment seat,’’ he said.

Mr Muma urged all po­lit­i­cal par­ties par­tic­i­pat­ing in the by-elec­tion to be is­sued based in their cam­paigns and avoid fer­ry­ing peo­ple from other places to Nkombwa in the run-up to the polls to cause vi­o­lence.
