President Michael Sata has thanked the people of Mansa Central constituency for voting for the Patriotic Front candidate Dr Chitalu Chilufya in the just-ended parliamentary by-election.

The Head of State said the PF victory in Mansa Central and in the local government by-elections recently held in Central [Nkumbi ward in Mkushi], Luapula [Mansa ward in Mansa] and Eastern Province’s [Nsefu ward in Mambwe district] signifies the party’s continuous growth in popularity and acceptability among citizens as the only party with a nationwide make-up and appeal.

“Let me mention that our recent victory in Nsefu ward in Malambo constituency underscores our rapid grassroots progression as a people’s party in different regions nationally and further point to a definite endorsement for our social and economic development agenda for the country,” President Sata said in a statement issued by his Press Secretary George Chellah.

The President applauded the people of Mansa Central for showing extraordinary levels of restraint, modesty and political maturity by conducting peaceful and non-violent campaigns.
