“I wish to extend my heartfelt congratulations to Honorable Vuwa Kaunda for winning the Nkhata Bay Central parliamentary by-election, which took place on Tuesday, June 29, 2021,” Nankhumwa said.
He added; “What is more exciting for me is that our Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) parliamentary candidate reclaimed his seat against a combination of nine (9) political parties.”
