Acting president Guy Scott says he will only make a proper judgment on the January 20th presidential election after the winner has been declared.

Dr. Scott says he is waiting for the the election to come to an end.

Asked whether he is proud that he has carried out a smooth power transition as acting republican President, Dr. Scott has told Qfm News that so far he perceives things to be good.

He has however noted that the aftermath of the presidential election results will still have to be considered in deducing whether the power transition has been smooth or not.

Dr. Scott says this is will also include how peaceful political parties that have contested the election will be.

He says these factors will have to be considered before the power transition can be considered smooth and over.

And Dr. Scott has maintained that he cannot predict how his political future will be in ruling Patriotic Front not until after the presidential election.

    Two things I asked of Thee, Do not refuse me before I die: Keep deception and lies far from me, Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion; Lest I be full and deny Thee and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or lest I be in want and steal, And profane the name of my God (Prov. 30:7-9).
    A WARNING TO ALL WHO WERE INVOLVED.THE CURSE IS UPON YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN UNLESS YOU REPENT.GOD IS A GOD OF JUSTICE.
    ONE WHO STEALS SINS AGAINST HIMSELF AND THEREBY BRINGING CALAMITY UPON HIMSELF.
    God will bring divine…

    • Its NOT Lungu your but MUGABE is your president you PF f00ls. Lungu will do as MUGABE says period. Open your eyes.

      I never thought that in a million years, Ka MUGABE would extent his empire to Zambia just like that. Alas here we are, now being ruled by MUGABE. If lungu dies, only him will decide who replaces him.

      Zambia should now change its name to Zimzambia under the PF.

      My friend, YHWH is not partisan. He saw this before you wished Sata dead. A lesson well delivered to all of you with a biased God.

  2. ONE WHO STEALS SINS AGAINST HIMSELF AND THEREBY BRINGING CALAMITY UPON HIMSELF.
    God will bring divine judgment upon him. In fact, the thief destroys himself by his crime.

  3. Well done Guy Scott!now we can rest in peace since the enemy HH has been defeated!!!in 2016 we will vote in large numbers for PF like tongas did for UPND!!CONGRATS TO JUBILEE PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU!!!WE KNEW HE WILL WIN!!!GO PF GO!!

  4. PF is not burried with Sata after all. Prophets of doom such as ZWD or rather Tonga Watchdog with its keen pro commenters such as Wnzelu, Ndobo, Anderson Mushala,oh sorry, Anderson Chisala a fake name, Ganger farmer, Nastradamus, stupi.d Engineer Australia now Germany have been put to public shame. One thing I have learnt about UPND followers is how to vote on tribal lines. I thank the Tongas for that lesson.

    • ZWD and their descendants chief among them Wanzelu have been confined to be ever spewing crap.

      Edgar is now your president you hear that!

    • PF has won the presidency but has lost the hearts of many Zambians. Why has PF lost some of its voters which HH gained? just watch the space as 2016 comes. In fact one warning is that the incoming president will have a hard time what with the poor copper prices and growth rate of below 4%. 2016 will therefore be rougher.

  5. I don’t like it when some people use superstitions to scare other people. Also when they are selective in their judgement. When people steal during the privatisation process no curse is invoked on the thieves. when perceived stealing of elections is suspected they started scaring us with their religious superstitions. curse , curse malabbish!!

  6. Thanx for your exemplary leadership and for the peace during the 3 months you have acted.Despite the differences PF needs you.Meanwhile congrats to EL and hard luck to HH.

  7. It is only wise to comment after the winner has been declared. This is the maturity needed in the political arena. Not a situation we have of people throwing tantrums on the ECZ and fellow political parties. I wish we had more sober characters like Scott in politics. May the winner be declared soon, we are tired of waiting for just a few constituencies the whole day. Are they still voting or counting or we are in for a rude shock?

  8. Guy Scott conducted himself shamefully after Sata,s death and brought divisions to PF which almost lost PF the elections. He has a well known hatred for EL which he only managed to conceal after it became clear that EL was, with the solidarity of his Cabinet colleagues, unstoppable. He cannot work in harmony with EL. His fate is already decided by his mistrust of EL. On the other hand the loyalty and solid support rendered to EL by Inonge Wina is rare for a woman in politics. She deserves the Vice Presidency having risked everything for EL and the PF. She is a soft spoken but very courageous lady.

    • Hon. Wina is deserving of the role of Woman Vice President. She has proven her Political gladiatorial skills. She is a fine representative to ALL Zambian Women in Politics.

      She should be Honoured, highly. Without her this success would have been twice more difficult.

      I expect she could be Our new Attorney General, or take over from Chibesakunda as Chief Justice?

      We wait with anticipation for her new role.

    • The country needs healing so you EL diehards stop insulting us. We have not yet forgotten that EL ascended to PF presidency thru pangas so you better behave and stop being inflammatory. The only thing that can redeem EL is if he behaves himself well as a president, otherwise he is not better than a common kaponya

    • As a long time PF supporter I need to offer the opinion that you guys must wake up after your 100-day drinking party at Blue Nile and THINK.

      How can you ALMOST LOSE TO HH and still consider yourself to be highly popular and also “chosen by God”??????

      As a school report might say – MUST STOP DAYDREAMING AND WORK HARDER…

      Best of luck to HE Lungu in the next 18 months, he will find there is much to be done beyond saying “ifintu…”

  9. CONGRATULATIONS HIS EXELLENCE MR PRESIDENT. BRETHREN, LETS ALWAYS REMEMBER ITS ONE ZAMBIA, ONE NATION. WHEATHER SOUTHERN OR EASTERN. LUNGA IS THE PRESIDENT FOR ALL. LETS CONTINUE ENJOYING OUR PRECIOUS PEACE AND DENOUNCE EVERY FORM OF DIVISION.

    GOD BLESS MOTHER ZAMBIA.

    KUTS

  10. There is no stealing or fraud in this election. Yes, stealing is a sin but then spreading lies and causing strife among the people is equally wrong.

    • No Weapon Fashioned against the Faithful of God’s Chosen will succeed.

      May Go have Mercy on your Soul, for your wickedness.

    • I can not understand you. Wishing another person dead? Be careful my friend! The many scandalous things you have ever done in this life God has not treated you as your sins have deserved. For Edgar you want him dead!
      It may be you dying earliar than his excellence EL. Pity you my friend

  11. Guy Scott should retire or join the Another Party.

    On the other hand, one can control political enemies by keeping them close in a lowly ‘non access to President’ role, thus keeping them out of the Loop of inner secrets in case they sell out. By far the best is to get rid of them,…..ethically of course. Internal wrangles cost too much in publics perception of the Party.

    There has been too much bad blood and too much damage which Lungu had to overcome to win. The best is to make a clean breast of it. PF need to conclude disciplinary procedures on all those that brought the Party to disgrace and caused the loss of votes from disgruntled PF supporters. Atanga seems to have acted with dignity but she is too bitter a pill to keep taking. A sharp butchers knife needed

    • Patriot Abroad – Yes, Scott should be out — he almost brought chaos to the country due to his hatred of Edgar. Atanga, GBM, Munkombwe, Masebo and many such should be out. EL needs to nominate, say, 3 MPs from SP – respectable Southerners to integrate the province into national politics. Bring Lubinda back into cabinet – and decide seriously on Simusa and Chenda (these two characters never made any effort to quell the polarization of the South – their stock value is very low). I am waiting to see who EL picks for VP.

  12. jANE mULENGA, wANZELU, jESSIE wA kU mAZUBUKA, eNGINEER aBROAD PLEASE YOU GUYS GO BACK TO WHERE YOU BELONG, THE ZAMBIA WATCH DOG.
    THIS FORA IS FOR WINNERS AND NOT DEVIL WORSHIPPERS. THIS FORA IS NOT FOR LOSERS
    THIS FORA IS FOR WINNERS .

    You are right , ZWDogs descendants are lost and spewing crap and sniffing crap on LT

    It is becuase of these bitter zwdogs that I decided not to vote for hh

  14. It’s been a good tuition by the BA TONGA the way they voted and I’m happy that all this allegations that Bembas are tribal are proven to be wrong but purely them. I really want to apologize to FDD leader for not getting enough Votes from Nothern and Eastern and most parts were HH did not deserve . She would have been the one on Number 2 .come 2016 H H will be coming 6th.lets Bravo EL

  15. Don’t wish death because you may be first one to die. Its interesting all the social media none of them were correct on the pattern voting, numbers of the voters and turnout. The reason is because bloggers don’t understand the value of social media. Its not a platform of insults.

  16. There’s time for everything. Note also that the only Government that will bring everlasting happiness to people is Gods kingdom. The earthly ones cannot. They will just advance from bad to worse-all of them including the USA

  17. Why do you want southerners to vote for no quality Lungu and no quality PF. The best candidate was HH but due to your tribalism you voted for no quality. Tongas have always voted for quality. When KK was the best quality in 1964, Mainza Chona handed over the presidency of UNIP to him. In 2001 and 2006, Chiluba was best quality and Tongas voted for him while easterners voted for their own KK. no one called easterners tribalists for voting UNIP in 1991 and forward. In 2001, Andy was best quality (over Mwanawasa). In 2006, Tongas didn’t vote for LPM because he stole Andy ‘ s vote (after all he was one of them). In 2008, southern chiefs voted for RB while the majority population voted HH as he was better candidate. 2011 again Tongas voted HH as he was better than CNP Sata. Do they just…

  19. Price of copper down, crisis in Zambia. Bunga kulunda and no mabasi or meleki (milk) on the table for breakfast and no beef for northerner and easterner .

  20. Any comment(s) therefrom will merely be academic, after nearly running the PF and the Lungu presidency into the ground with that treacherous conduct, which conduct has left a bitter taste in the mouths of many people.

  21. Congrats to PF and Lungu but PF should know that without RB, EL would have lost and its a fact.
    The question should be how can a party that has been in power for only three years strangle to win an election ?
    Simple, Sata promised a lot of things that he did not deliver, more money in the pocket, constitutions in 90 days, better hospitals etc.
    If EL can work on one of these things, then 2016 will be easy for him, If not, Then i can see HH winning. Why, Firstly RB and Guy Scott will be out of EL campaign team and the few voter who voted for EL this time around will know for sure that the PF has no capacity to deliver on any of their promises. Which means even fewer people in the PF strong holds voting because they will feel as though they have been let down, and if HH wins it`s end of…

  22. A transition president Guy scott did quiet well despite his phrases, he is level headed, intelligent and frank on issues, I like him.

    EL should not be exercited with power it corrupts. Guy scott brings confindence to govt from other section of the community and investors. Keep him there and ripe the fruit, take on the yes bwana and perish with them. its your take
