HH will win once Lusaka swings to UPND – Simutanyi

Political analyst Neo Simutanyi has observed that Eastern and Lusaka provinces will decide the winner of the 20th January 2015, presidential election.Dr. Simutanyi who is also Center for Policy Dialogue (CPD) Executive Director has told QFM News in an interview that this means that whoever wins the two provinces will also win the presidential election.Dr Simutanyi says he is also of the view that though Lusaka province was a PF stronghold (2011) if the province swings to the opposition, UPND candidate Hakainde Hichilema is likely to win the election.HH1He has also stated that the 2015 presidential race still remains a battle between the ruling Patriotic Front and the opposition UPND.

Indications are that Lusaka will go to UPND especially with he coming on board of Sylvia Masebo of Chongwe. Lusaka has once voted overwhelmingly for UPND in 2001 so it is wishfull thinking and self deception  for anyone to think that Lusaka is their stronghold as the province swings easily.

All the opinion polls conducted by Lusaka based organisations (media such as Muvi TV) have shown that HH is ahead.

All the rallies held in Lusaka by UPND have been massive and indicative of what may happen.
