Lusaka Mayor Wilson Kalumba has died.
Kalumba is widely known for his ‘Sleeping on duty’ habits and also scruffy dressing.
This means there will be by-elections on a date to be announced by the ECZ to elect his replacement.
In 2016 during the General Elections, there was a small margin difference between Kalumba and Maureen Mwanawasa who stood under UPND.
Kalumba will be remembered for removing MTN, Airtel and Zoona boths from the streets of Lusaka as his first assignment.
