Jonas came third in the elections with 36 votes, Christopher Chimba came second with 102 votes while the party’s National Organising Secretary Chimwemwe Mazabuka Chipungu won with 1647 votes.

“People from this constituency wanted change, that’s why they approached me to stand and I was confident that I will win just like I am feeling in the forthcoming Tripartite elections,” Chipungu said.

On his part, Jonas thanked the constituents for the support he was given  during his tenure and assured of total support to Chipungu

Meanwhile, MCP deputy campaign director Njobvuyalema won the primaries with 467 votes beating Edward Chileka Banda who got 26 votes.
