The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) party in Zambezi West constituency has disclosed that only one person has applied to contest the forthcoming by- elections slated for 7th January next year in the constituency.
PF constituency secretary Isaac Mwila said Christabel Mukuyu filed in her application to the party on 8th November to contest the Zambezi West seat.
Mr. Mwila told ZANIS in Zambezi today that Ms. Mukuyu attended interviews yesterday following her successful application.
Mr. Mwila, who is also PF Mapachi-Chinyingi ward Counsellor, said Ms. Mukuyu was the only candidate who has filed in her application to contest the Zambezi West seat so far.
The Zambezi seat fell vacant after the nullification of the seat by the high court on 10th October this year due to malpractice leveled against the former MP, Mr. Kakoma involving the donation of a hammer mill and land phones in the constituency.
