Rainbow Party (RP) General Secretary Wynter Kabimba has said it is not automatic that opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema will be the next president owing to his incarceration once he is out of jail.
In an interview on Pan African Radio Peoples’ Debate Program anchored by Caesar Sindele, Mr Kabimba said that there are many opposition leaders in Zambia who have been incarcerated before and they did not become presidents in Zambia.
Mr Kabimba expressed optimism that in 2021 General Elections he will be President of Zambia, adding that Rainbow Party was now a party of choice because Zambians have lost confidence in both Patriotic Front (PF) and united party for National Development (UPND).
