We will send large police force to Solwezi-Mangani

Home Affairs minister Lameck Mangani says a large force of police officers  will be deployed to Solwezi ahead of the parliamentary bye-election.

Mangani says the government does not want to see a repeat of the violence that was witnessed during the Kasama bye-election where the MMD lost.

The Solwezi bye-election will take place on November 19, 2009. The by-election follows the death of  Benny Tetamashimba who was the MMD candidate.

The Solwezi Central parliamentary by-elections will take place alongside three local Government by-elections in three provinces.

The local government seats are Katete in Chienge District in Luapula Province, Nakulenga in Zambezi District in North-Western Province and Kauba in Pemba in Southern Province, according to the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ)

Political parties are yet to announce their candidates.
