Agnes Kavindu has opened the gap with over 70% of the votes counted leaving his closest rival Urbunas Ngengele of UDA with a paltry 26%.
The voting saw the turn out if voters following covid 19 containment measures announced by the President recently. The campaigns were stopped following a rise in the number of covid 19 infections in the country.
