United Party for National Development (UPND) leader is said to be politically retiring after the August 12, 2021 polls according to IPSOS.
IPSOS is one of the world’s leading polling research firms based in France and has experts organized in five major research specializations and is operating as One IPSOS.
The firm assesses political happenings and interprets trends at global level. IPSOS has been known for its accuracy, truth and insight.
According to the IPSOS monthly report released for the month of March, 2021, the firm reveals that Mr. Hichilema lacks the cream to attract support especially from the majority middle income working class citizens. The IPSOS report states that Hakainde Hichilema will face his heaviest defeat to the incumbent, President Edgar Chagwa Lungu because the majority of people have lost hope in him mostly because his campaign trail has lacked substance, direction and no message of hope to warrant him victory against the incumbent.
The research by IPSOS reveals that from a sample of over 15,000 middle income earners in Lusaka and Copperbelt Provinces, Hakainde Hichilema has failed to inspire youths who are the majority voters to believe in his leadership qualities or preparedness to run the nation and fix what he claims “Zambia’s problems”.
Most youths from the research say that Hakainde Hichilema only rides on natural problems like droughts to paint the Patriotic Front as failures but he himself has never outlined a clear agenda for the country.
The Majority young working middle class earners feel HH has no strategy and no direction hence the reason he plagiarized a manifesto from Jamaica.
Hakainde Hichilema has been president for the UPND since 2006. In the political arena, he is well known as a perennial presidential candidate, having contested five times and lost all: 2006, 2008, 2011, 2015 and 2016.
