Hundreds of Mkaika residents this morning suspended their daily chores to escort the MMD candidate to file in his nominations.

Mkaika constituency is in Katete district of Eastern province.

The race is between MMD’s Peter Phiri and David Phiri of the PF.  The by-election was caused by David Phiri when he defected to the PF. 

He is still working as deputy minister in the bloated government of Michael Sata. The UPND is not taking part in the Mkaika by-election.

Hundreds of local people trouped to the nomination centre to escort the MMD candidate while others were heard chanting that ‘we want change; Sata must go, this is too much.’mkaika 2
