The Number Of Votes Zambia Opposition Leader Got Over President Edgar Lungu

Even after his 5 failed attempts to become the President of Zambia, opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema didn't loose hope. He kept pushing on and as things seem to be, his sweat is finally going to bear some fruits for him.

That is because as we are speaking, reports have indicated that Hakainde Hichilema is the president elect of Zambia after defeating President Edgar Lungu. At first, Edgar Lungu seemed to be rejecting election results but at the moment, the Head of State has bowed down to pressure and reports indicate that there will be a peaceful handover in the country.

The unbelievable thing is that Hakainde Hichilema defeated the sitting President with very many votes. With only one constituency to go, Hakainde Hichilema had more than 2.8 million votes while President Lungu had 1,814,201 votes as reported by Uganda's Kifefe Kizza-Besigye.

"Zambia Electoral Commission has declared Hakainde Hichilema winner of the Zambia Presidential election with 2,810,777 votes Vs incumbent Lungu's 1,814,201; with all but one of the 156 constituencies counted. HH is president-elect! Congratulations to @HHichilema & all Zambians!" Tweeted Kifefe Kizza-Besigye.
