Former United Party for National Development (UPND) vice-president Richard Kapita is likely to be the PF candidate for the Solwezi West By –election.
The Watchdog is reliably informed that Kapita has started campaigning within the PF structures.
Kapita and two councilors resigned from UPND mid May and joined the ruling party at a meeting addressed by president Edgar Lungu in Mwinilunga.
Last week, MMD MP for Solwezi West Humphrey Mwanza died creating a by-election.
Some time in the dim past Kapita was MP for Mwinilunga East.
