Her Royal Highness Chieftainess Shimukunami of the Lamba Speaking people has publicly endorsed Patriotic Front (PF) Lufwanyama aspiring Lawmaker Don Mungulube as her preferred candidate to contest for the seat.
Chiftainess Shimukunami said that her fellow chiefs in Lufwanyama sat and chose Mr Mungulube as the candidate to contest for the Lufwanyama seat prior to the August polls.
She said they settled for Mr Mungulube because of the developmental project that he has brought into the district.
“Me and my fellow six Chiefs of the Land sat together and agreed that the people of Lufwanyama will give the votes to President Lungu and Don Mungulube as MP,” she said.
Chieftainess Shimukunami thanked President Edgar Lungu and his Government for the developmental projects in the area and other parts of the Country.
And Lufwanyama PF aspiring Lawmaker Henry Chilombo has downplayed the remarks stating that it will not affect the credibility of the adoption process by the Members of the Central Committee (MCC).
Mr Chilombo said that the remarks by Chieftaness are just opinions that do not in anyway represent the facts on the ground.
