George Kunda changes his mind about taking the Guy Scott issue to court
MMD chairperson for legal affairs George Kunda has U-turned on his earlier intentions to take Vice-President Guy Scott to court over his parentage.
Mr Kunda, who is the immediate past Vice-President, says he will not take Dr Scott to court because he wants Zambians to debate the matter and judge for themselves.
He said this on Sunday evening when he featured on a Muvi Television programme dubbed ‘The Assignment’.
“I do not want to take this matter to court because I want Zambians to debate and make up their minds,” he said.
He said as far as he is concerned, Dr Scott should be dropped from the position of Vice-President and be replaced by someone else.
Mr Kunda said President Sata should consider appointing Minister of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Inonge Wina as Vice-President.
“I hear they want to appoint Ms Inonge Wina. This decision can help because maybe she can help resolve issues surrounding the Barotseland Agreement,” Mr Kunda said.
Mr Kunda claimed that Attorney General Mumba Malila’s explanation on Dr Scott’s status in government was mere propaganda.
Mr Malila recently stated that Mr Kunda’s claims that Dr Scott is not eligible to be Vice-President was baseless. The Attorney General explained that according to the Constitution, Dr Scott is eligible to act as President.
And Mr Kunda disclosed that he has ambitions to become republican President. He however said he has to consult Zambians on the matter and God willing, he can run in future. Mr Kunda also condemned the creation of new districts by President Sata. He said it is wrong for the President to create new districts without consulting the grassroots.
