HAKAINDE Hichilema will have a heart attack and cry when he loses the general elections on August 11, 2016, Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) president Edith Nawakwi has charged.
She accused Mr Hichilema of taking Zambians for fools by claiming that he had won the presidential elections when citizens have not yet gone to the polls.
Ms Nawakwi said this on Hot FM’s Red Hot Breakfast Show monitored by the Daily Nation on Wednesday morning.
“I think you heard last night on social media and radio, Hakainde saying he has won. I don’t know whether he thinks Zambian people are fools or they don’t think or what. Where did the Zambians vote for him to say that he has won?
“We haven’t yet had the poll, so you cannot say at the starting line that I have won until the whistle is blown. That is when you finish your 100 metres race and say I have won,” she said.
Ms Nawakwi said even Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter, does not boast before he starts sprinting that he has won. He looks at the watch and sees the tally there and runs his very best that is when he says I have won.
