ECL Is A Threat:
‘ECL is certainly a threat in the 2026 election’
A USA based UPND sympathiser George N Mtonga says ECL is a threats as he writes; “Remember, we won the election because copperbelt and Eastern province voted for UPND with higher margins than the 2016 election. If ECL runs in 2026 he will certainly lose, but it won’t be by a million votes.
ECL is the only one with the popularity to pose any real threat to UPND.
Remember this, Zambian have already forgotten about what PF was doing. 1.8M voted for ECL and now people have also seen what UPND looks like in power. So it’s unpredictable right now.
I’m curious to see how this unfolds. I would suggest UPND not do things that will create sympathy for ECL, ie arresting him, controlling his movements etc”.
