I don’t know when President Sata will return back to Zambia-Guy Scott

Headlines I don’t know when President Sata will return back to Zambia-Guy Scott

Vice President Guy Scott has maintained that President Sata is in Israel on a working holiday.

Dr Scott however told Parliament that he does not know when President Sata will return back to Zambia.

He said the heightened speculation about President Sata’s whereabouts have been fueled mainly by the online media who have been making innuendos out of fiction.

Dr Scott was making a statement on the whereabouts of President Sata following a point of order raised by Monze Central MP Jackie Mwiimbu.

He maintained that President Sata is on a working holiday in Israel and that he may meet Israeli President Shimon Perez in due course.

“The Press Statement issued by Acting Information and Broadcasting Minister Hon. Mwansa Kapeya on Sunday, 22 June 2014 confirmed indeed that the President is in Israel on a working holiday and the Israeli President is aware of President Sata’s visit and may in due course meet him when appropriate,” Dr Scott said.

He said he is ready to provide video footage of President Sata during his stay in Israel.

And Deputy Speaker Mkhondo Lungu curtailed any further debate surrounding the health of President Sata.

“Members of Parliament will appreciate that I did not hesitate to order the Vice President to issue a statement on the whereabouts of the President but sustaining questions about President Sata’s health will be going against the rules set by the Speaker when he ruled that questions about the health of the President will not be entertained,” Mr Nkhondo said.

  1. Kwati chipuba and you call yourself a veep.Is everything ok in this govt koma something is wrong somewhere.

    • A Ceo of a company who went on leave(working holiday) without specifying the time when he would be back would be described as irresponsible and would most likely be fired.Since Sata is not sick why is he wasting tax payers monies in Israel when we have issues that need addressing in Zambia…..Ok even my 2 year old knows Sata is very ill so Cabinet should stop B.S -ing Zambians….Just tell us to pray for him and as Kabimba said start preparing for a presidential by-election.

    • You will see the President upon his return! Ala! You want to know the exact date so that you can bewitch him!

    • Look let us not twist the meaning behind Mr Scot’s statement

      What he is saying for most of you naysayers is that, He might be back after 28 days or 29 days , the difference in that day makes it difficult to specify when he is coming
      He has also factored in the unreliability of late of most flights from Europe and the ongoing saga with airspace

      In simple English , The president is busy trying to lure investors and shall be back this time next month

      I speak with a lot of sources, and please DO NOT twist Mr scot’s statement

      Thanks

    • @ TOM,
      Why should you insult some one who probably older than your parents, you must be a cursed person

    • This sh**is getting old you cracker!! Why on earth did you come up with such a lie t?? what do you be take Zambians for? Peres is in the US as we speak and he wont be returning to Israel for another 3 days or so. So what the ********** is ukwa doing there? waiting for him to return?? Your story Mr. “Gay” scott does not make any sense! why didn’t you came up with a better lie considering the fact that you ( PF) are professional lairs??
      Tell the nation the truth! tell them the cobra is ill and is in Israel for treatment. kwapwa!

      # HH for president!

    • muzingu opusa cant understand a thing about whats happening,,,,, Sata knows why he`s running away and hiding,,,

      there is no need for Sata to be running and disappearing,,,, Sata should just face reality, go ku mushi and apologise for all the hurt he has caused those shaolin masters (in black gowns) AKA bushilubemba,,,,, and a forgiving traditional ceremony will be performed and all will be well for Sata no running around

    • Why do people wants to make a big deal out of the president’s trip ? If he is sick and he is on medical treatment so what, happy ? Sata deserve our support and if he is not fine we should pray for him.Petty opposition and petty people.Some of you have no jobs and here you are sitting on your sorry behind typing crap.You can do better than this.

    • Guy Scott when he was asked by BBC why the rumours on Sata`s health are increasing “They are being spread by the opposition media.They are campaigning for the opposition, for a tribal minority in the South of the country and want to take over and won’t actually they were in a coalition with us and thought they were bigger and now they are in opposition and certainly they are campaigning so that they can win the next election.”

    • Itolle lya musungu….. too old to thing. U have 90 day to go baswaine.

      The old frog has kicked the bucket may his soul rest in hell

    • Nobody knows when Sata will return? And nobody knows which day Jesus will return.
      But before his return, their will be signs called “Armageddon” from Kabimba.

    • Does it make any difference whether Sata is in the country or away in as far as the running of affairs of the country is concerned? The guy has been as good as non existent. The country has been run from Bwinjifumu Rd by Mr M’membe… he has just been a symbol, a log.What is concerning though is the level and quality of questioning by the MPs in the August House. The opposition need to ask tough questions,including political and constitutional type of questions. They should demand real, straight and unambiguous answers. At the moment this House is a joke.

    • Guy Scott has just confirmed what some us already know. However he is economical with the truth. Sata is critically ill at some medical centre. The people he made fun of for their illnesses are calling him to join them.Mwanawasa, Kunda, Mazoka, Chiluba, and Penza.

      The truth is Sata is dying and he ain’t coming back vertically but will come back horizontally as high priority cargo some time in July /August. Though family members are pushing for burial as soon as possible so they can move on.

      All of you in diplomatic missions for being part of the forest family prepare to go back to your jobs you were doing before. Because who ever is taking over will have his people in place. Sad hey?

      Zambians ‘ cries have finally been heard and Zambia shall be free from tyranny again.

    • I pity Gay Scrotum. The man is also shaking in his pants because the man who stood by him no matter what is no more. He is facing an uncertain future as well because he is seen as a member of the K camp which is highly despised in the PF.

      The day of the long knives in PF is fast approaching.

      Mulenga Sata , should have appointed him self family spokes person and minimise the damage to his political reputation by telling the country the truth about his father’s health. Thats the only way he will gain the trust of the people so he can continue his political career without being in his father ‘s shadows.

      Mulenga rise up and challenge the Kabimba cartel that wants to use you and damp you later.

    • Guy Scott has not lied…….look and read between the lines..

      They are being spread by the opposition media.They are campaigning for the opposition, for a tribal minority in the South of the country and want to take over and won’t actually they were in a coalition with us and thought they were bigger and now they are in opposition and certainly they are CAMPAIGNING so that they can win the NEXT ELECTIONS.”

      There you have it…elections are around the corner.

    • It is my sincee hope and trust that the new Constitution will address such mediocrity in Leadership. Such a one needs to be fired for they do not know what they do.

      A waste of our Taxes, why do we even pay this bugger.

    • Sata, please come back to Zambia soon, we want to see you in Court.

      No, not as a witness in your stupid defamation case.

      In the DOCK for CORRUPTION of RDA contracts.

  2. Kabimba and M’mbe took the Cargo to Isreal
    so they can loot the National coffers and come
    out to say the President died whilst in Isreal.
    Shame for Africa , Zambia in particular.
    God has shown us wht will happen.
    “Stand still & kno the Salvation of the Lord”.
    Ba Sata we pray for God’s mercies to b on u
    ether Alive or Dead only God has a plan for
    ALL flesh.

    • The PF can never be auctioned to those 2 you’ve indicated as there very small fish in the whole spectrum.

      We’cve a reason why ABC is Finance Manager, Kabimba or any of MCS servants know the boundaries with which they go. Any of them will be fired the same minute should the attempt to do that.

  3. Incredible! The right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. I wish this was believable. I suppose that the Vice President has no clue either as to what work exactly the President is doing in Israel on our behalf. This is very depressing. Our top representative in the honourable house does not care to research our concerns and put us at easy. The report of the VP is far from satisfactory.

  4. Pictures don’t come out now, the normal protocol like here at LT pictures come at the end of the event

    So there is no need for pictures , they shall come after he returns

    The kwacha is picking up and investors have strong confidence

    Thanks

  5. This *** is getting old you cracker!! Why on earth did you come up with white lie like that?? what do they take Zambians for? Peres is in the US as we speak and he wont return to Israel for another 3 days or so. So what the H E L L is ukwa doing there? waiting for him to return?? Your story Mr. “Gay” scott does not make any sense! why didn’t you came up with a better lie considering the fact that you ( PF) are professional lairs??
    Tell the nation the truth! tell them the cobra is ill and is in Israel for treatment. kwapwa!

  6. The problem in this Sata thing is that people only wants to hear what they want.Whatever Guy Scott will say will be deemed irrelevant because people have their own preconceived ideas of what they want to hear.So in a nutshell this a case that depends on the readers source of information and how they want to hear it. Just like this post ,people will thumb it down because it is coming from Saulosi a man whose political views they don`t agree with. Humans will forever remain egocentric beings, and thats what makes us unique.

    • Donty Scotty is a very shallow minded and dull racist, that should not have been Veep in the first place.

      Since when had he ever said anything with a tangible timeline. He’s a waste of my Tax and space, do not expect him to know anything.

    • You living in denial. This situation has played out before in Zambia, Nigeria, Palestine, Malawi and most recently in Venezuela. Rather than denying there is a critical situation you should be encouraging people to pray for his quick recovery.

  7. This crap is getting old you cracker!! Why on earth did you come up with such a lie t?? what do you be take Zambians for? Peres is in the US as we speak and he wont be returning to Israel for another 3 days or so. So what is ukwa doing there? waiting for him to return?? Your story Mr. “Gay” scott does not make any sense! why didn’t you came up with a better lie considering the fact that you ( PF) are professional lairs??

    # HH for president!

  8. What happened to our journalists at ZANIS and ZNBC travelling with our head of state?Could have been nice to see how our delegation is engaging would be rural investors to come to our beloved country…
    Just trying to see things from the positive……

  9. That is what telling lies does. Now all govt officials who have been window-dressing the issue are looking ridiculous. Will they say the same, say, after a month when the “working holiday” is over?

    • Sata has been on HOLIDAY since 2011 and expects it to last until 2016.

      Even I can give a better answer than this stupid muzungu!

  10. I hope Israel can put Sata on a missile that has no recall button so he won’t return to zambia.

  11. @Tom, something is no wrong somewhere but rather something is wrong everywhere!
    Providing a video is not a bone of contention, actually it’s possible to pass through Israel, get a video for two days and proceed to an undisclosed destination.

  12. The BBC interview the empty tin Guy Scott had…. is even more shocking. No words can describe how utterly useless this government is.

  13. I have noticed the PF cadres are out in full force. Second We dont when our president is coming and thats ok??? We are not going anywhere as a nation. Youths of today should be thinking of creating a legacy the kids of tomorrow. The majority of us are doing things for now

  14. THE VP WAS SPOT ON. IN ZAMBIA IT SEEMS ONLINE PUBLICATIONS ARE A NEW PHENOMENON. SO WE ALWAYS GET CONFUSED AND WAKEN UP AT EVERY STATEMENT POSTED ONLINE. BLOGGING IS HERE TO STAY BUT WE NEED TO LEARN THAT NOT EVERYTHING ONLINE IS WORTH BELIEVING. THERE IS JUNK, DIRT AND FILTH POSTED ONLINE. EG SOME PEOPLE HAVE POSTED THAT SATA IS ACTUALLY ALREADY DEAD. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD ALSO BE AWARE THAT ONLINE BLOGS ARE VERY UNRELIABLE. RESPONDING TO EVERYTHING ONLINE IS LIKE EMBARKING ON A WILD GOOSE CHASE. BECAUSE EVERY RESPONSE TO SUCH COMMENTS RAISES EVEN MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS. IN THE PROCESS THE GRZ GETS CONFUSED AND BECOMES ECONOMICAL WITH THE TRUTH WHICHG IN THE END CONFOUNDS THE SITUATION EVEN FURTHER. YES SATA IS SICK. BUT THE SITUATION IS NOT AS BLEAK AS THE UPND IS PAINTING IT.

    • Nice attempt at educating us but yet a futile one. The situation is serious and it is nothing to do with either blogging or the UPND.

  15. Why can’t some bloggers get it? This is not about celebrating one’s illness ( which is traditionally un-Zambian ) In normal governance, the whereabouts of a President and their mission, are not a secret. This is about relating the facts to the nation. If the President is unwell and in Israeli for treatment, most people will wish him well and pray for him. The ridiculous attempts by govt. to avoid ‘coming clean,’ is what is dangerous for this nation. I bet there is pilfering, plunder of resources and misappropriation of funds going on in the background in case the worst comes to pass. The lies also serve as a way of buying time while there are manoeuvres within the PF ranks, to strategically position themselves for power. But the likes of Nubian Princess and co. are shockingly myopic.

  16. I fully agree with the Maverick one, the level of questioning in this August house is abysmal. Was Sata’s disastrous court appearance where he clearly appeared sick and confused not evidence enough to a qualified doctor that the man is sick? What Chituwo should have asked is this, “I’m a politician & fully qualified medical doctor, my prognosis of your boss is that he has serious dementia resultant from cancer chemotherapy he must be receiving as evident from the apparent depletion of melanin in his skin. As a consequence of his failure to comply with the constitutional requirement of good health for presidential incumbents, when is your boss resigning on health grounds?”

  17. Such governments are suitable and only entertained in African Government setups but not in the Western Civilised world. It’ s genuine that there are millions of empty headed characters in Africa who support governments which abrogates the true principles of democracy. Why should a President who was elected by the people for the people fail to give a genuine program and duration of his foreign visit ? What is so special about being president of a nation apart from being the chief sevant of the masses who elected such a monister to the highest office in the land ? Africa, especially Zambia in this context has become a failed state in terms of honouring the benchmarks of democratic rules. Why should the president’ s whereabouts be kept concealed as if he is a purse of some cash?

  18. A VP of the Government is not aware of the President traveling schedule? Appointed MP is acting as President? What a mess.
    Has the PF embarked on the path which is leading to the declaration of State of Emergency followed by the suspension of Constitution and declaration of One Party State under rule of Comrade Kabimba?

  19. I wonder if anyone in PF will ever say anything to Zambians without sounding irritated.

    #OneZambia

  20. I am beginning to sympathise with Guy Scott for the tight corner he finds himself in and his answers to questions about Sata’s situation are a clear testimony to that.
    The fact is the PF mess was evident from day one when they took over and Guy Scott, a mere ceremonial VP, a lame duck VP cannot explain the mad current situation. I would even go further and say Sata’s wife is better placed to tell Zambians the whole truth on her husband’s health and attitude.

  21. No One knows when Sata will return not even his second in command, that is if he will return…..? sad for this nation.

  22. OK COUNT DOWN YAYAMBA. he will come after world cup final…meanwhile life goes on. after all even when he is around he is only swearing relatives at state house.

  23. ba upnd mwasakalala caling u a small tribe ku musungu? naimwebene efily tu mweba ukubwata bwata even wen it is not du kula bwata bwata fye president alwalwe atiiyo he is sick,can that be a political tool? no wonder mulushila ama election oz your friends busy working imwe busy politicking nefishilingile thats y right thinkn people can0 take u serious they wil be jst saying these(upnd) ar under 5 /calculator boys.try to change the leadership and sell yo party to other provinces otherwise this as things stand upnd is viewed as a regional party which is very dificult to win an election.take ir leave it
