The MP for Kasambya Mbwatekamwa Gaffa has announced that he won’t stand again for the post.
He has given two major reasons for his decision; (1)He asked his constituents to give him 5 years only to represent them in the August House; the very reason he voted against parliamentary term extension.
(2)The government never respects deliberations made by parliament; he hates seeing the government turning the legislature into a rubber stamp.
It should be recalled that Hon. Mbwatekamwa Gaffa was among the few NRM MPs that voted against the lifting of the presidential age limit.
