Mr. Hakainde Hichilema’s Special Advisors “spAds” from the United Kingdom have predicted a defeat for him. The spAds told much Hichilema that he stands very little chances of winning the elections this year because the registered numbers of voters in his strongholds have dwindled whilst the numbers in PF strongholds have increased significantly.
After analysing the Electoral Commission of Zambia’s voter register data, the spAds came to a conclusion that the numbers were not in Mr. Hichilema’s favor and his chances of are slimmer than they were in the previous election in 2016.
The spAds however did advise Mr. Hichilema to pick an influencial Bemba running mate that can win him votes in the PF strongholds if he is to increase his chances of winning. He was sternly warned against picking a Bemba running without any political influence in the PF strongholds lest the elections will be a walk in the park for the Patriotic Front and President Edgar Lungu.
The spAds also advised the UPND leader to ensure that there is a 100% voter turnout in his strongholds and pray that there is voter apathy in the PF strongholds so that he can make up for the low numbers of registered voters in his strongholds.
Mr. Hichilema was also advised to consider adopting PF rejected candidates in their strongholds as a way of sneaking votes in the PF strongholds. The provinces he was advised to potch candidates from the PF are Lusaka and Copperbelt because these are two provinces that usually dictate the outcome of elections.
The spAds did also advised Mr. Hichilema to gather enough evidence of electoral malpractices before, during and after the elections so that he can establish a prima facie case when presenting his election petition in Court. He was advised to create his own propagandict evidence of electoral malpractices if he won’t gather sufficient evidence of it because he will only have 14 days to prove his case in Court.
