Dr Scott is no longer the vice-president of the PF as he was removed-Davies Chama

GUY Scott has ceased to be Patriotic Front (PF) vice-president and he will remain an ordinary member whom the party will consult from time to time with respect, Davis Chama, the ruling party secretary general has revealed.

Mr Chama said Dr Scott was removed from his position as PF vice-president before the presidential election last month and that President Edgar Lungu, who is the leader of the ruling party had not rescinded his decision to change the status of the former republican vice-president.

Dr Scott could not be reached for a comment as his mobile phone was switched off but the former vice-president had challenged his dismissal in the Ndola High Court but has since withdrawn the matter so that it could be settled outside court.

Mr Chama said the ruling party would be holding elections from the lowest organ of the party to the position of vice-president but hastened to state that President Lungu as head of the PF reserved the right to appoint his deputy in the party.

He said Dr Scott would remain an ordinary member of the PF but as the founder and father of the ruling party, the leadership would be consulting him because he was still relevant to unity of the party.

“Dr Scott is no longer the vice-president of the PF as he was removed before the presidential election.
President Lungu as head of the ruling party reserves the right to appoint any other member of the party as vice-president. As you are aware, Dr Scott challenged his dismissal as vice-president of the PF in the Ndola High Court but for the sake of unity and reconciliation, he has withdrawn the matter so that we can settle it outside court,” Mr Chama said.

And Mr Chama said there are still some disgruntled elements within the ruling party who were undermining President Lungu and the party was happy that the Head of State had sent warning that he would deal with such divisive people. He said President Lungu had appointed some ministers from the opposition in an attempt to unify the country that was drifting into serious and dangerous regionalism and that it was important for all Zambians irrespective of religious, political and ethnic affiliation to support the Head of State.

Mr Chama said Zambia needed to heal from politics of ethnicity and that those who were blackmailing President Lungu over his decision to unite and heal the country were not patriotic Zambians and should therefore be chastised.

President Lungu has appointed MMD Mwandi member of Parliament Michael Kaingu and his Chipangali counterpart Vincent Mwale as edication and sports ministers respectively while UPND’s Siavonga MP Richwell Siamunene and Greford Monde Itehzi-Tehzi as Western Province and agriculture deputy ministers respectively.

  1. This Davies Chama need be discarded by Edgar. He is really huge wrong piece of rag. Who does he think he is to talk about Guy Scott & the matter in court?

    • @1 Nostradamus,

      Don’t you know that Davis Chama is PF Party Secretary General who happens to be the Party Executive Administrator. If he doesn’t clarifies this issue, who does it?

      And what case is before the court that you believe he is commenting on? Scott messed up big time to the point where his complicity was an inch away from throwing the country in a full blown inferno with PF pushed to the edge of its extinction.

      Who doesn’t know that had RB not shown the wisdom of endorsing and reconstituting the PF campaign with full throttle support on the campaign trail with massive logistics moved to give life to the campaign, we could be talking of a sad story today. Scott could have succeeded to a systematic death to the PF as planned. His hatred for ECL was way abnormal to…

    • @1 Nostradamus,

      Don’t you know that Davis Chama is PF Party Secretary General who happens to be the Party Executive Administrator. If he doesn’t clarifies this issue, who does it?

    • The sooner ECL became the substantive PF Party President, he removed Scott and Masebo from their party position with approval of the Central Committee. Dr. Scott was officially written to on the same. In response he filed an injunction in the Ndola high court which he later withdrew. But the Executive decision has not been reversed as of today.

    • @Nostradamus.the above article says the matter is not in court because the two parties will settle the matter outside the court for the sake of reconciliation.

    • It really seems 99% of bloggers here are commenting without thinking.even what is not necessary becomes an issue. @CZAR

    • @1 Nostradamus,

      Scott messed up big time to the point where his complicity was an inch away from throwing the country in a full blown inferno with PF pushed to the edge of its extinction.

      Who doesn’t know that had RB not shown the wisdom of endorsing ECL and reconstituting the PF campaign with support in full throttle personally on the campaign trail with massive logistics realigned to give life to the campaign sabotaged by Scott, today we could be talking of a shortest ruling party. Scott could have succeeded to systematically exterminate PF as planned.

      In life if you don’t learn from mistakes and come up with corrective actions, you risk the worst. I also support that Scott is better off resting because he will not fit in this new political order. He is better a consultant.

    • @1 Nostradamus,

      Scott boobed big time to the point where his complicity was an inch away from throwing the country in a full inferno with PF pushed to the edge of its extinction.

    • Who doesn’t know that had RB not shown the wisdom of endorsing ECL and reconstituting the PF campaign with full throttle support when realigned massive logistics, that was the defeat of the Scott scheme. The move gave PF much needed life to. otherwise, today we could be talking of a shortest ruling party ever. Scott had almost succeeded to systematically exterminate PF as planned and guided by M’membe and Kabimba.

      In life if you don’t learn from mistakes and come up with corrective actions, you risk the worst. I also support that Scott is better off resting because he will not fit in this new political order. He is better a consultant than being an active political actor.

    • After the so called ‘reconcilliation’ all suspensions and charges were ‘lifted’… so its no suprise that Mr Chama being a politician is now ‘clarifying’ the absence of scot in chawama thank you campaign..

    • Mwanawasa and GUY Scott we’re the best president Zambia has ever had . The knew the economy and cared about the people . Now enjoy the bandits in power ????????????

    • LUNGU IS INHUMANE AND HIGHLY VINDICTIVE! LUNGU IS IN OFFICE FOR HIS SELFISH GAIN. LUNGU IS DULL, THAT IS WHY HE COULDN’T READ BETWEEN THE LINES THAT REMOVING SCOTT FROM HIS POSITION WOULD MAKE THE WORLD POWERS TO REACT TO ZAMBIA’S DISADVANTAGE. IF LUNGU IS NOT AWARE HE SHOULD KNOW IT NOW THAT ZAMBIA IS BEING SQUEEZED BY THE POWERS THAT BE. THAT IS WHY VOA RECENTLY RELEASED AN EDITORIAL ON ZAMBIA. BE VERY CAREFUL LUNGU THE WAY YOU ARE HANDLING OUR COUNTRY.

    • Mr Chama Davies you should learn to respect elders, from nowhere you want to start talking about scort like that. be care.

    • @Nostradamus; I agree with you. Im equally surprised at how PF is treating Dr Scott. People really have a short memory. Dr Scott was condemned by most of us for siding with PF when the PF guys wanted to rip him in pieces. The man is a veteran. Im not a PF supporter but I like Dr Scott. The man is simply the best. I cant believe that Davies Chama fails to understand basic history of PF. Sata, Kabimba and Dr Scott are the true founders of PF. Its sad that these new guys have zero respect for real founders.

    • I’m afraid Lungu and Chama are very vindictive, not trust-worthy, political amateurs! They have not honoured the “reconciliation” agreement brokered by the church.

      They should have maintained Guy Scott as Vice-President for both country and party – it’s only 18 months left before the next election; elevated Sampa to full cabinet post (even if in charge of youth and sport).

      Thereafter, if PF won the 2016 elections, then, they would have made the changes. With these serious blunders, Lungu and Chama will lose investor confidence; weaken the economy; and most, likely, lose 2016. They are antagonising the very people who can make or break PF in 2016. All the best … . Lungu’s will be the shortest presidency in Zambia’s history – only 18 months!

    • I thought there was reconciliation before elections! This what we were saying, it was not a genuine reconciliation. Scott has been discarded like a used rag. He held this country together after Sata’s death. I wonder about PF. Davies Chama, “he will be consulted from time to time!” Front!

  2. THIS SIGNIFIES THE END OF SATA-SCOT ERA. THE NEW AGE GAS SET IN.
    BUT THE DISGRUNTLED MEMBERS MUST BE GIVEN A PLATFORM TO BE HEARD. THERE CONCERNS ARE GENUINE. THERE ARE LOOKING AT IT FROM THE ANGLE WHERE THE FATHER NEGLECTS HIS BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN AND SIPPORTS OTHER CHILDREN UN RELATED TO HIM BY BLOOD FOR THE SAKE OF UNITY. IT DOESNT MAKE SENSE.

  3. But scott isn’t the guy to give an influential position in PF because of his connection with Rainball Party leadership .for as long as we have Rain ball party scott can’t be trusted.secondly,the guy almost sold the party to the opposition b4 election.on the other hand,Edgar will seem to be a rascist,he should have given him a ministerial job.it hapened in 1997 when coup suspect Miyanda was demoted to education minister from vice presido.this could be a break or make situation for unforgiving Edgar.

  4. Mr Chama, at times it is better to keep quiet and let people think you’re a f.ool than to open your and confirm you are one!

    Such talk is not building your party!

  5. Bt this is very wrong,i lyk pf very much,bt I think even my late president hemcs,is turnin in his grave to see what is being done to his frend,wit whom he struggled 4 over ten yrs to put pf wher it is,b4 mr chama and others joined pf,dr scott ws there and stood by sata thru thick and thin,even wen it seemed as tho pf ws jus a joke,bt look at wat he has been reduced to.

    • You like pf and now it is clear that you and your pf have killed Zambia. can’t you see that things have come to a stand still in Zambia? Economically we are stagnant.

    • Hey people Scot will be Defense Minister just wait, You have talked a lot and the president has heard “Guy Scot will be Minister of Defence” and Sampa will be Minister of Energy and water development a split Ministry from Mines. Thanks for your observation. We are the listening Government

  6. Aaaaah not that name again!

    Can he not just retire? Can he really have hoped to be given a post after his personal battle with His Excellency? Is he impervious to the mortifying position he put the party in? The party lost a great number of supporters who voted for other parties because of Guy Scott et al.

    Settle what out of court exactly? How long can Guy Scott keep this up? He only wants gov’t position to play on the international stage and signal external people that he has some power.

    It would be complete madness to allow Scott any party role that gives him a voice. He will cause mayhem in 2016, which is what he intends.

  7. It is either Guy Scott was used by Edgar or simply being punished for refusing public funds for election campaigns. Scott’s position on public funds forced Lungu to seek help from Mugabe, Kagame and Boko Haram leadership. So far Kageme and Mugabe are already receiving their rewards from Edgar for their help. Rwanda has been granted permission to fly its national carrier into Zambia. As for Mugabe, Zambia has secured a foreign loan on behalf of Zimbabwe to fund the construction of Kariba Dam hydro. We are yet to see the rewards for Boko Haram.

    • Do not open your mouth about Boko Haram. The problem with Zambians is their lack of analysis. Just from the response of some bloggers here. One would know who takes the rubbish that ZWD writes as gospel truth. Use your brain and do not always believe in gutter journalism. Just because they write what you want to hear to boost your bruised egos and someone else’ ego (the one I will not mention).

  8. I have never heard of a single person being discontinued or fired from being a member of either the republican or Democratic Party. Any office bearer can only relinquish their position upon losing an election, death, conviction by the courts of law or by resignation. African politicians are morally bankrupt and are a disgrace. Guy Scott was the only sane person the P.F ever had.

  9. Does anyone know What didn’t happen to Davis Chama’s forehead mwebantu….The whole front looks like a chopped penis head…eish

    • ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaa…………………….(at times one just has to laugh especially in the midst of morons!)

  10. Even Steven Jobs was removed from a company he helped found after underperforming. So nothing strange here, some of us who have eyes saw how he almost drove PF into extinction due to his political maneuvers. So good move here. Guy cannot be trusted.

    • You must be so cheap and very dull…Guy was the only person who didnt practice politics of the belly, and PF hated that…get a life and avoid comparisons of nursery school level analysis…READ, AND READ AGAIN, THEN YOU CAN COME BACK HERE AND POST SOMETHING THEN.

  11. You have pressed a wrong button. Wait and see. You will not have my vote come 2016. This time around I will vote for HH.

    • Now you are vibing……..

      This country deserves better, posterity deserves better, you deserves better.

      Ba Edgar, we have no where else to go. Zambia is our own motherland. Fashioned and blessed with unity.

      We shall respect you as our legitimate Head of State for now. Edgar in 2016 we shall tell you to Go Away From Zambia State House!

    • You have always voted for your dirty, smelly and scruffy HH aka Mujaheddin leader of Ingombe Illede

  12. @patriot abroad, that is why you are a destitute where you are because you think like a cockroach. Guy scot founded the PF with Sata and he needs to be respected. Your dizzy Lungu just hijacked the presidency of the party . That is why he is very clueless. You think it is better for him to allow Rupiah Banda to be the shadow president and sideline the man who tirelessly worked for the party? That is why the other senior members of the party will never stop undermining him. Just watch this space. He hasn’t even gone very far but he has already started feeling the heat.

  13. @Imprezza, muzungu anikonde mentality. I find it strange that people can say I will not vote for PF because Guy Scot is not in top leadership. Strange. Anyway it is your choice, I am sure there are other people who will not vote for your choice just like others will vote for Rainbow and whichever party will be appealing to them. Problem with Zambian politics is supporters and/or cadres not understanding and following ideologies of their respective parties but rather personalities. Not even manifestos are ready, people just follow blindly. That is what makes sensible people shun politics in this country.

    • @! Anonymous…..I am impressed for once you have posted something atleast of secondary school level analysis…

    • @! Anonymous…..I am impressed for once you have posted something atleast of secondary school level analysis… keep trying!

  14. OUR ORGANIZATION FEELS THIS GUY SCOT THING MUST BE THE THING OF THE PAST. THE MAN COULD HAVE BEEN ENJOYING DRINKING CHIMPAGNE IN SCOYLAND WHILE U BLACK ZAMBIANS WOMEN WOULD HAVE BEEN PICKING DOGS AND CATS MISTAKEN FOR YOUR BABIES AND SCATTER IN ALL NEIGBORING COUNTRIES DURING THE ELECTION PERIOD BECAUSE OF INABILITY OF SCOT TO READ THE POLITICAL SIGNS.
    THE MAN PRETENDED TO RECONCILE AFTER REALIZNG THAT HIS CAMP WAS FAST LOSING.
    ANY WHERE HIS INABILITY TO READ THE POLITICAL SITUATION COULD BE UNDERSTOOD BY THE FACT OF HIS AGE AND POSSIBLY PARKINSON RELATED ILLNESS, AND ALSO DUE TO THE FACT THAT HE WAS HELD HISTAGE BY THE CARTEL. ONE GOOD THING IS THAT THE CARTEL HAS BEEN NOW BEEN HELD HOSTAGE BY PF GOVT NOW. THEY CANT ATTACK THE PARTY DIRECT BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE CONSEQUENCES OF ADBZ…

  15. Guy scot was elected at the party conversion and he is not like the position of secretary general which can be hired or fired. davies chama is a lunatic. where was he when guy scot and sata fought off MMD and rupiah banda hostility and had to sleep in mosquito infested huts campaigning for PF almost 10 years? once again, davies chama seems mad.

    • Mr Davis Chama learn to have limits we all have respect for Guy unless you are mad. Guy is a hard worker in fact he won you elections PF not RB as you are putting.

  16. Instructions to remove Scott is from Mugabe because he is a racist. If President Lungu is not careful the international reputation for this country will be distorted. Late Sata was very clever he used Scott to win international favours. Look at the role Scott played when he was sent to represent the country in USA. He met with Obama and it was good for us. Sata’s legacy is dead.

    • I worry that EL has found fraternal bonds with that pariah, Mugabe.

      He told the Ndebele shortly after Zimbabwe got independence to ‘Go away from Zimbabwe’. Then he followed with the white zimbabweans.

      Today more that 3 million Zimbabweans are in political, social and economic exile.

      E Lungu before and after elections has been confiding with Mugabe that nonagenarian (meaning 90 years plus – see you have learnt a new word) whose trade marks are economic brinkmanship, hatred, racism, imponderable intolerance, viciousness.

      Show me your friends and I will spell out your character.

      Is it any wonder that Chella and the rest of us who dont support EL have been told to ‘go away from Zambia’ mugabe style?

    • I should even add that instructions also came from Kagame and leader of Boko Haram. Why is Edgar Lungu surrounded by bad leaders? Mugabe, Kagame, RB and Boko Haram leader?
      Kagame doesnt have respect for democracy. He sends special forces to eliminate his foes who have sought asylum in other countries. The recent incident is in South Africa which lead to a serious diplomatic tension between Rwanda and South Africa. Boko Haram, Kagame, Mugabe and RB are Edgar’s advisors.
      Apparently there is only one man in the history of Zambia occupying the office of presidency who has refused to abuse public resources in favour of his own party, that is Guy Scott. He is terribly punished for this. Remember, these mercenaries in the name of pf cabinet almost plotted to a coup on Scott.

  17. Scott’s maneuvres greatly damaged the chances of the PF to retain office. I can guarantee you that if Miles Sampa stood on the PF ticket, UPND would be in office today.

    • Why not? You Sampa would have dismantled UPND? This party is stronger than it was before. Sampa will be president after EL.

  18. Scot has shown that he is really a mature politician . His brief rule was the best so far. Once a president he has declined all position except defense . This guy will go into history as a person who never lost an election .

  19. Why do this to old Scott, the founder member of PF? This is no good. Why should Edgar be vindictive? Scott did a good job as acting President. Is it because Scott set Immigration officials to see if Edgar’s mother was Malawian? Or that he removed him from acting as President when Sata died? I thought Edgar said he was not going to be vindictive!!!!!

  20. One day my friend was in a tax and passagers in that tax who were just ordinary people were discussing and lamenting that PF(EL) has made a big mistake by sidelining Dr Scot.hE CONTRIBUTED TO PEOPLE voting for PF because he highlighted the projects that were finished or were in progress and many people for PF to complete Satas projects which were highlighted by Scot during the campaigns.Problem these politicians misuse public funds and were not happy becuase Dr Scot was against such.Will miss his contribution to the politics of ZED.His late friend Sata must be turning in his grave in displeasure on how his friend and founder member has been treated.

  21. These guys are simply showing weakness and insecurity by exhibiting such a vindictive discourse. People cannot be ordered to respect you – you have to earn it. No matter who you are. That is the hard truth that will have to be faced sooner or later

  22. REFLECTION ON OLD GUY. I strongly, vehemently and patriotically have great respect for Dr. Scott. I simply love the man… not because he is white, but because he is wise, humble and honourable. The man deserves the uttermost respect and I will say this; Guy has been one of the best leaders mother Zambia has EVER… had. Edgar Lungu with his blind entourage counter-pats will only remain a bad sting and odor we will only wish passes away soon or changes it fragrance.
    If Guy did know the answer in parliament, stood and said, “I don’t know the answer to the question. Let me consult and i”ll get back to you.” Humility right there.
    GRZ funds on elections, no need to dwell on the obvious, the man displayed firmness.
    May someone please tell me which corruption charge Guy Scott faces?…
