Dr Guy Scott relaxing at his farm house with Dr Nevers Mumba

Former Vice President Guy Scott has laughed off reports that he had died on Wednesday in New York where he had gone for an emergency medical operation.

In an interview, Dr Scott jokingly said, “Well, I am talking to you now, this means I never went from hell and came back. If I did, I was not going to be talking to you.”

He said a lot of people have phoned him inquiring about the news story appearing online that he had passed on.

Some online reports published unverified reports that Dr Scott had died this week whilst undergoing treatment in New York.

And Dr Scott’s wife Charlotte said her husband is enjoying good wife life.

She said, “Our phones are ringing non-stop with people asking whether the on-line rumours that my husband has passed away (in New York!) are true! They are not – he is safe and well, and in good health!”

She said, “The important fact is that human beings need news, and we all much prefer true and well-informed news. But if we cannot get the truth – because of censorship and State-sponsored propaganda – then people will be forced to consume fiction, with little alternative way of checking the truth.”

Dr Scott said Zambians are being subjected to ever-tightening state control of the press, thereby resorting to unverifiable sources for news.

    • He is “enjoying a good wife”! Good for him, I say. Every man deserves a good wife.
      Anyway, he should also have poetically said that the news of his death is greatly exaggerated!

    • Great to hear. All the best Dr Scott.

      I get the feeling PF would be a better party with you and Mr Sata still at the helm.

      Your legacy is set in stone

      Thanks

    • To me Guy Scot does not mean well anymore to Zambia. Im not wishing him dead though, but he has messed up his huge contribution he previously gave to Zambia. He has shown us how evil a white man can be just to get what he desires. So, Rest In Peace Dead or not, you mean nothing at all.

    • The headline sounds like the “I’m not dead” scene from Monty Python and the Holly Grail.

      Dead Collector: Bring out yer dead!
      Large Man: Here’s one.
      “Dead” Man: I’m not dead!
      Dead Collector: ‘Ere, he says he’s not dead.
      Large Man: Yes he is.
      “Dead” Man: I’m not.
      Dead Collector: He isn’t.
      Large Man: Well, he will be soon, he’s very ill.
      “Dead” Man: I’m getting better.
      Large Man: No you’re not, you’ll be stone dead in a moment.
      “Dead” Man: I feel fine. I think I’ll go for a walk.

      Guy, watch out for the Dead Collector’s club and get well soon! Cheers.

      Do you think whites care little about you dying? if you read his interview carefully, you will find that he only mentions hell not heaven. They dont believe in life as we do. Him and cartel have schemed a lot of rubbish.

    • This is why people should retire at the age of 65…that campaign trail was a strain on his frail body.
      This is what our leaders should remember when you are in govt improve our health services so you wont need to fly 10,000 miles for an operation.

      Satamic Free Masson Kaponya (HH) has prepared his followers and minions very well.

      They all know where they are going. Meanwhile congratulations to Kaponya (HH) whose wife Mutinta has now returned to Kabulonga after camping in Mkushi with Costen for 2 weeks

    • Mr. Kudos,

      Your ignorance is appalling. Guy Scott is not a Boer. He is a Zambian – born in Livingstone in 1944 – with Scottish roots. A Boer is a white South African with Afrikaner or Dutch roots.

    • Basically a “Boer ” is a South African of Dutch descent while Afrikaner can mean Europeans whole opted to make South africa their country : they include Dutch, Flemish, English, German etc.

  5. We have already analysed this fake pre-August election photo with Nevers Mumbwe.

    Next is UPND president Kaponya (HH) whose funeral has been postponed to December due to unforeseen circumstances. However funeral gathering remains unchanged at the veranda of his Kabulonga residence.

    • The true story is that people are queuing up for appointment letters at Ndeke House and the minister of Health is very happy to subject hard working Zambians to such humility. Today you can post a letter, send through email, SMS, watsapp etc. But what does the ministry chose queues, to increase corruption to make civil servants look busy what a shame. Hopeless ministry always in the press for wrong reasons.

  6. When Scott was PF, Upnd called him a foreigner but now he’s Upnd, he’s ZAMBIAN born in Livingstone in 1944 blah blah. Let’s be principled on all matters. So if he rejoins PF what’s he gonna be?

  8. Previous in the sight of the Lord is the death of the righteous. If this Guy was to die today, the ticket he has is to hell, so God would spare the unrighteous by giving them space of time for reflection to commit themselves to the Lord. Dr Scott, start preparations for your departure, death is the passing out of this earth into another world, today it can be a rumour and reality tomorrow. No smoke without fire. As for Nervous, help preach salvation to Guy Scott and not to leisure with him as the picture depicts. Long life is aafor gift for the upright.

  9. Am requesting LUSAKA TIMES to seriously consider censoring childish posting including insults on this site. It has become disheartening and disturbing to read some of the commentaries on a platform that used to be a marvel to express one’s views on. Some opinions are best kept as thoughts tightly locked up in their owners heads. Not every opinion is worth broadcasting

    • Khakis I’m old school PF which means 1) I will always support Sata’s vision 2) I will always support Scott as Sata’s right-hand man and 3) I will always maintain that racists like you can go to hell. Get over it, some people are not supporters of this little cartel of RB and Dora and Edgar their little puppet. Resorting to petty racism means throwing away everything, even what Kaunda fought for, 50 years of independence for nothing. Think about it – you think the country does not need whites or any other foreginers? Good luck. Or maybe you already live in Zimbabwe

    • And also it’s annoying the way you misuse and completely disrespect Kapwepwe in such a childish manner – he was fighting to get rid of a racist government, but you and similar traitors are now trying to annihilate 50 years of progress and create a brand new racist government

    • It appears you’re a relative of Mr Sata going by your rantings. Who voted for Mr Sata? Was it only you so called PF members or we the general population?? Does it mean only so called PF members must take part in running our affairs? Who left this mess we’re in? Is it not your uncles Chikwanda and Sata? Lungu has picked on people to assist him reverse the situation? Time for appeasement is long gone. As for Mr Kapwepwe, I am not putting words in his mouth. He said it at a public meeting at Chingola Buntungwa Park.

GUY SCOT IS JUST AN INDIVIDUAL WHOSE LIFE DOES NOT AFFECT YOU. YOU SHOULD BE WORRIED WITH THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS AFFECTING YOU. SOME PEOPLE CAN NOT EVEN AFFORD A DESCENT MEAL A DAY. BE OBJECTIVE.

  11. Neither can we believe the story is from Mrs Scott as it has not been verified. In this case there was no need to bring in the State. Just because you lost does not imply that the State automatically became your enemy. Sober up Mrs Scott.

  12. Wishing him well. Leave him in peace. Lets celebrate our lives together. No one is immortal. We all bring something different to the table.
    Zambian newspapers are the worst in the region. Poor grammar, reporting style, non objectivity and lack of professional ethics. Simply put, unbelievable! Especially that we are an English speaking country.

  13. Nevers Mumba the chief mourner in the whole world went to do a feasibility study rather than a friendly visit.The man is positioning himself as Chief Mourner and Asset distributor.Guy Scott’s life-line is in the evenings,its good that after losing elections and a tiring but fruitless petition the”kamuzungu” can rest and reflect.All he should do is to apologize to the Zambians for his recent double standards(PFand UPND)before he expires.

  17. The errors and all will only get worse as your children now have to learn in chilapalapa up to Giledi Foo before they start using English, by which time they will be lost to a world of grammatical errors. The degree of error of course will depend on their first language. Experiment on!

  18. Dr. Scott has no integrity. He slaughtered pigs and gave himself money from Government as Minister of Agriculture. There was also an undisclosed scandle invoving some huge sums when he handled purchase of maize from Brazil.

    This is the guy you guys are worshipping. Foolish Zambians. I will not talk about his late boss MHSRIEP. But Zambia needs and must demand for integrity in people vying for political and public positions.

  19. @clueless, I know why you’re upset. You’re the people who benefited from Mr Sata like his Kitwe based nephew whom he posted to Japan and his wife to Sweden as embassy officials to these countries. I voted for PF so I also would like to benefit like this couple.
