The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has adopted Saboi Imboela as a Mayoral candidate for Lusaka.
Speaking during a press briefing in Lusaka, NDC Secretary General Mwenya Musenga says the party received an overwhelming response from candidates who wanted to contest the Lusaka mayoral seat under NDC.
He says the party received over eight applications showing that the party is growing at a fast pace.
He adds that it was a tight contest in Lusaka for the position of the Lusaka Mayor.
Mr. Musenga says the campaign manager for Ms Imboela is Ackson Kaonga.
Mr. Musenga states that the party has given the residents of Lusaka a candidate who will be able to firmly speak for them and bring the much needed development.
And Mr. Musenga says the party will not field any candidate in the by-election in North Western Province but that in Luapula the party is participating.
Meanwhile, the NDC Secretary General has maintained that Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili will be NDC Presidential Candidate for the 2021 general elections.
He also says the party is not in any alliance with another political party saying it is able to stand on its own.
Mr. Musenga says the party is now finalizing its manifesto as the party wants its manifesto to speak directly to the sufferings of the people of Zambia.
Speaking earlier, NDC Lusaka Mayoral Candidate Saboi Imboela said she is confident that she will win the seat saying the people of Lusaka have been deprived of the much needed development.
