—-Celebrations are being held in the tourist capital, Livingstone, to celebrate the election of Patriotic Front’s (PF) Lawrence Evans as Livingstone Central Member of Parliament.
Supporters of Mr Evans can be heard hooting their cars in support of him in the streets of Livingstone.
In an Interview with ZANIS in Livingstone today, Peter Wamuwi said the peace experienced during the just-ended by elections should be upheld instead of the violence that led to the death of a cadre and consequent postponement of the elections
Mr Wamuwi noted that now that the people have chosen whom they want to represent them in Parliament it is up to the elected MP to keep and work on the promises he made to the people of Livingstone.
He also noted that since the incoming MP is from the ruling party, people have high expectations, especially in terms of development.
