What Happened In Zambia Can Also Happen In Zimbabwe - Ncube

Zimbabwean entrepreneur and media mogul Trevor Ncube says Zimbabwe can experience the same transition as recently occurred in Zambia when the leader of the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND), Hakainde Hichilema, won the presidential election overwhelmingly.

Hichilema defied the odds by beating the incumbent, Edgar Lungu, in the 12 August 2021 elections despite the alleged use of state institutions including the police to disrupt his party’s political activities.

Speaking during an interview with BizNews founder Alec Hogg in Drakensberg, South Africa, Ncube urged the opposition to exercise patience. Ncube said:

It is possible. The underlying thing there is patience. HH has been very patient, firstly. Point number two, he is a chartered accountant. He has a track record.

He has run a successful business. How can you get somebody who has never run a tuck shop to run a country?

We underrate the importance of experience, the importance of exposure, the importance of the right values in the person who says they want to raise their hand to lead.

What HH has done in the past has infused in him the experience and the worldview that will help him. Look at the people who he has appointed.

He is appointing professional people, Zambians who have got a track record. My sense is that he will get it right.

If the forces of evil don’t come in and push him, Zambia could be a place to look forward to.

Hichilema is reportedly close to Nelson Chamisa, the leader of Zimbabwe’s main opposition party, the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC).

In the run-up to the 26 March by-elections, the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) banned several CCC rallies and imposed stringent restrictions on those that were given the greenlight.
