Former PF Kasama Central Member of Parliament Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has declared himself ready to re-contest the vacant parliamentary seat on the UPND ticket.
Speaker of the National Assembly Dr. Patrick Matibini recently declared the Kasama Central seat vacant after Mr. Mwamba crossed the floor by accepting to serve as UPND Vice President for Administration.
But Mr. Mwamba popularly known as GBM said he is ready to defend his seat in order to prove his popularity.
The former parliamentarian said the developmental projects he had initiated in his Kasama Central constituency will speak volume during the campaign period.
Mr. Mwamba claimed that the PF’s popularity in Kasama was as a result of his personal contribution to the ruling party.
Meanwhile, PF Kasama District Chairperson Teddy Mweshi said the impending Kasama Central parliamentary by-election has been long overdue because Mr. Mwamba was an expelled party member.
Mr. Mweshi revealed that the PF is more than ready to contest the Kasama central seat and teach Mr. Mwamba a lesson that the ruling party is bigger than him.
He urged PF members to support the aspiring candidate that the party will adopt to contest the forthcoming parliamentary by-election.
