National Democratic Congress candidate Saboi Imboela had her moment in the sunshine when her party leader Chishimba Kambwili took her on a driva around town to market her candidacy. Imboela who is the only female candidate has been hard at work bolstering her chances for the July 26 poll where she has an outside chance of upsetting the tables.
