Mayambala Says He Stood A Chance to Be President If All Voters Turned Up for Voting
Independent presidential candidate Willy Mayambala has said he stood a chance of winning presidency if all the registered voters had turned up and voted.
Mayambala who says he is going back to his normal life as a civil engineer, has blamed the low turn up on Electoral commission who did less in ensuring that all voters exercise their voting right.
He however conceded to defeat and is ready to start another life away from politics.
