CCM candidate Godfrey Mgimwa (32), was by Sunday evening poised to win the Kalenga constituency parliamentary by-elections.
Earlier results from a section of the 216 polling centres showed that CCM took the day at Isakalio polling centre with 84 votes with chadema getting 8 and Chausta 0. At Ulanda A polling centre, CCM got 97 votes, Chadema 15, Chausta 0.

At Lumuli ward, Itengulinyi village, police arrested two people inside a car with registration number T 808 AMX who were armed with stones, machetes and sticks.
The car spotted a Chadema flag. Earlier at Maboga village, police arrested a number of people in a car with registration number T185 BGW who had a gun and sticks on them.
Mr Mgimwa had been picked by CCM to fill the position left vacant by his late father, who was also the Minister of Finance, Dr William Mgimwa.
Dr Mgimwa passed away last month in South Africa where he was undergoing medical treatment. A banker by profession just like his father, Godfrey beat eight other contenders to represent the party in the by-election that took place on Sunday.
Mgimwa Junior had scooped 348 votes, followed by Tigo Zonal Manager for Southern Highlands, Jackson Kiswaga, who got 170 votes, according to the supervisor of the election, Mr Joseph Muhumba.
