Botomani scooped 38 votes, beating three other candidates.
In an interview, he said it was an honour to have retained the seat, a sign that his contributions were good.
Botomani promised to work hard to ensure implementation of projects in the district.
“Lilongwe is a big district and needs commitment so that development activities are implemented,” he said.
Lilongwe district commissioner Lawford Palani expressed satisfaction with the voting process.
He said the council will continue providing technical support to the chairperson and his deputy.
On her part, Lilongwe North legislator Monica Chayang’anamuno (Malawi Congress Party) urged the chairperson and his deputy to remain committed towards serving the council and its people.
“I ask councillors to be vigilant and help government bring sanity in locations where gulewamkulu masquerades are reportedly demanding money from people in the name of celebrating Tonse Alliance victory,” she said.
