We’ve been buring the midnight oil to add quite some exciting udates to mzalendo — we have built and are populating a searchable database of parliamentary aspirants.

Why? So you can know them:

  • Who they are
  • Where they are standing
  • Their background and history
  • What they stand for: their vision

We’re still iroing out rough edges but we think it is stable enough for you to use

This link takes you to a listing of all aspirants

Clicking the constituency link will give you a listing of all other aspirants, as well as the incumbent


Clicking the aspirant gives you their details

The public can also leave comments for each aspirant.

Naturally a search facility is available

This takes you to the query page where you can search on:

  • Name
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Province
  • District
  • Party

So far we have about 317 aspirants (yes, three hundred and 17) and that is only from 45 constituencies. We’re still populating the data on a daly basis.

As usual for corrections, additions, suggestions, etc, contact us
