Chishimba Kambwili’s Son Mwamba is one of the candidates being considered for the Roan constituency adoption by the opposition NDC, insiders have told Zambian Eye.
Kambwili held the Roan seat on the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) ticket before he was expelled.
Kambwili is now the leader of the NDC and has vowed to defend the Roan seat saying he has done much for the people of Roan.
The PF has adopted former Luanshya Mayor as it’s candidate in the forthcoming by-election.
“NDC will be making a grave political mistake to adopt the son to Kambwili. This is not a family business or chiefdom or royalty arrangement,” observes Yona Musukwa a political commentator.
Musukwa advises the opposition to sit down together, consult each other and field one strong candidate in Roan.
“Winning Roan will inspire confidence and send a very strong signal as we move towards 2021,” he says.
