–Acting President, Guy Scott, has asked the people of Kabwe to vote for the Patriotic Front (PF) candidate, Edgar Lungu, in the January 20, 2015 presidential by-elections.
Dr Scott urged the electorates to vote for Mr Lungu so that he can continue with vast developmental agenda that was started by the late President, Michael Sata.
