Acting President, Guy Scott, has urged individuals questioning his legitimacy to go to court.
In a statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today by Senior Private Secretary in the Office of the Acting President, Robert Kamalata, Dr Scott stressed the need to mourn the late Michael Sata with dignity.
Dr Scott has appealed to all colleagues to mourn the departed President in dignity and desist from fractious succession campaigns.
The Acting President noted that some people clearly took some of his warning as idle, saying that he will not allow President Sata’s funeral to be marred with indignity.
Dr Scott said as party President he has taken this deep again and warns all those who are disregarding a very sensible and humane request to reflect on their conduct.
“The few that think that my acting as Head of State is a matter for legal debate let them take this matter to court if they so wish, but I will not allow any party members including Cabinet Ministers to disregard party discipline while we mourn our departed leader,” Dr Scott said.
