Former Munali MP Mumbi Phiri is reportedly eying the seat following the nullification of Professor Nkandu Luo’s victory. Mumbi is now the PF deputy general secretary. PF insiders are reporting that Mumbi has set her eyes on a possible by election to reclaim the seat she held between 2001 and 2011. Munali Member of Parliament Nkandu Luo has become the first high profile figure to lose her seat after the Lusaka High Court has nullified her election. The Munali seat was petitioned by losing UPND candidate Doreen Mwamba who alleged electoral malpractices. High Court Judge Edward Musona made the ruling saying the Electoral Commission of Zambia failed to conduct a fair and transparent election in the constituency. He cited the failure by ECZ to provide GEN 12 forms in 14 polling stations as a gross irregularity. Judge Musona said there was rampant violence in Munali Constituency which prevented majority voters from turning up. The court also found that Professor Luo abused her office by using public resources after parliament had been dissolved. Judge Musona referred to the judgment of the Constitutional Court that ruled that ministers were illegally in office after parliament was dissolved. Prof. Luo has since appealed against the nullification. The post Mumba Phiri Eyes Munali appeared first on Zambia Reports.
