Mr Kosamu is in Luano to drum up support for the PF candidate Davies Chisopa ahead of the11th September Mkushi south parliamentary by-election 2014.
He said Mr Chisopa is the right man for the people of Mkushi South constituency because of his quest to develop the area under the PF developmental agenda.
Other candidates vying for the seat include opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) candidate Agnes Ngandu and Sydney Chisenga for the Movement for Multi-Party Democracy MMD.
The Mkushi South parliamentary seat fell vacant after the Supreme Court ruled against the election of former MP MMD’s Sydney Chisanga on grounds of alleged electoral mal-practices.
