New on Blavity: Sixth Time’s The Charm: Hakainde Hichilema Is Zambia’s President-Elect After A String Of Defeats

In a new article on Blavity, I profile Zambia’s incoming President Hakainde Hichilema, who reinvented himself to win the country’s presidency after five failed attempts. From the article:

Hichilema’s years in the political wilderness also gave him time to work on his political persona. Early in his political career, HH’s youth, wealth and education were sometimes a liability, with critics accusing him of being arrogant and out of touch. In 2011, a politician from a rival party called Hichilema’s leadership “inferior, immature and childish” when compared to the deceased Muzoka. For this campaign, HH adopted a new nickname, “Bally,” a slang term for father that became popular online. “Bally will fix it” and Bally will pay” became rallying cries, with hashtags, tweets and songs across social media.

You can read the whole thing here.
