Patriotic Front-PF- Chairperson for Information Frank Bwalya has urge former Vice President Guy Scott to formally distance himself from divisive and disrespectful comments against President Edgar Lungu that the Post Newspapers attributed to him.
Father Bwalya says Dr Scott should also demand an apology and retraction of the story from the Post Newspaper if indeed he did not give the newspaper such a story to prove his innocence.
He says failure by Dr Scott to do this will make it difficult for the members of the party and the general public to believe his innocence on the matter.
And Father Bwalya has urged PF members not to rush into condemning senior officials over unconfirmed statements published in the media.
Dr Scott was recently quoted as issuing disparaging remarks against President Lungu.
Dr. Scott could not be reached by broadcast time.
