But is Lusaka still PF stronghold ???
This analysis is for the think tanks of PF. The top leadership must act on it. It is very basic and easy to decode. See below:
Do you know that Lusaka has 1,119,318 total registered voters. Do you also know that Kalumba polled a total of 270,161 votes to become the mayor of Lusaka under the patriotic front in 2016. Miles Sampa polled a total number of 81,936. A result which must send PF to the drawing board urgently. When you look at the total number of registered voters in Lusaka & what Kalumba got in 2016, am simply saying the results Miles got are pathetic, if not scary for a party in power that wants to win 2021 elections.
Political arithmetic tells us that 188,255 voters who voted in 2016 for Kalumba (PF) did not vote yesterday. What I am simply saying is; a total number of 188,255 people who voted for PF in 2016 did not turn up for whatever reasons. We have more people who didn’t vote for PF yesterday than those who voted. When this huge number turns up in 2021, what is the guarantee that it is PF they will vote for?
This analysis tells us that it is pf supporters who didn’t turn up ‘yesterday’. The question is why?
What does this mean?
It simply means that no one knows who the silent majority will vote for in 2021. Looking at how Miles performed, Lusaka may go either ways in 2021. 188,255 is a huge number to vote for you in 2016 & boycott in 2018. Why did they stay home is the question we should all ask our selves. ‘Who will they vote for in 2021?’, is another question we should ask our selves
