Swapo wins Sibbinda
JAN POOLMAN
THE Swapo candidate for the regional council by-election in the Sibbinda Constituency in Caprivi, Ignatius Chunga, has been elected to replace Felix Mukupi, who died in a car accident on June 16 this year.
As with the 2010 regional elections only 42% of the 6 248 registered voters in the Sibbinda Constituency cast their votes on Friday.
Swapo's Chunga obtained 1 467 votes. This represents 55,9% of the vote. His predecessor garnered 77% of the votes during the 2010 regional council election, which shows that the ruling party has lost support among the Mafwe tribe in the Sibbinda Constituency. The constituency is deeply divided between the Mafwe and the Masubia tribes, which do not see eye to eye.
The voter turnout was about 5% higher than in the 2010 regional council election. A total of 2 621 people cast their votes in the by-election, while 2 490 did so in 2010.
A total of 801 voters supported the candidate of the official opposition, the Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP), Assens Malumbano, which represents 30,6% of the vote. In the 2010 election, the RDP could only garner 503 votes or 20,2%.
Even the DTA, which obtained 69 votes in the Sibbinda Constituency in the 2010 election, doubled its support with 121 votes for its candidate, Alextuis Mibonda.
The Congress of Democrats (CoD), which did not participate in the 2010 regional council election, received 232 votes for its candidate Alfred Chilinda.
