Share

In a demonstration of respect and recognition for the wealth of experience and insights held by former leaders, President Hakainde Hichilema visited Dr. Guy Scott at his residence in Lusaka.

President Hichilema highlighted the need to formalize the support system for former Vice Presidents, emphasizing the gap in existing laws that leave them without formal care or channels for government consultation once they leave office.

Expressing the importance of collaboration, President Hichilema emphasized that running a country requires the support and counsel of former Vice Presidents. Dr. Scott, being one of the country’s finest leaders with a political career spanning decades, holds invaluable experience that can contribute to better service delivery.

  1. Personally, I see this a good initiative. But increase the span of consultation to non-political wisemen , teachers, professors, bankers, insurers, financiers, doctor’s, agronomists, industrialists. A word of caution, though, look for wisemen, quiet and retired not lobbyists and active in corridors of power.

    • There is nothing wise about this old man. He is a delusional *****, just like the rest of PF. We need to investigate if he was part of the looting that happened under Michael Satan. He could be of help in divulging where Michael Satan hid the money he stole from Zambia, and testify in court to this fact

  2. He’s trying to deceive us. If these consultations are genuine, let him call on Zambia’s first female and elected VP Inonge Mutukwa Wina. Guy Scott almost set Zambia on fire because of how he behaved when Sata died. He’s on fact the one that identified Miles Sampa as Presidential material when they founded the UDF at the time his friend was seriously sick. Good luck to them

    • there’s nothing deceptive here. Inonge was called but could not come. useless agogo anyway. Sampa was dribbled. he would have made a better leader than lazy lungu. Clueless Lungu is the reason a lot of us ditched the party, the reason they lost.

    • ………..

      Gogo wina was the most useless VP only appointed to appease the Lozis are the expense of genuine development…….

      She was the one who watched a female wearing red being stripped naked by PF cades next to her podium on labour day……….and did not bat a eyelid.

      Evil woman.

    • Kaizer Zullu the dwarf on the run from Zambian Police. You are the ones who made him vice president. You are the ones who gave the copper mines to them. You are the ones who gave Kapiri Glass Factory to a Boer, who then dismantled it in Zambia, took all the parts back to South Africa were he reconstituted it. You are the ones who gave a railway to a white man, who deconstructed and took the steel to South Africa. You are the ones who gave white killers free land after Mugabe kicked them out. You are the one who gave our national parks to white people who have depopulated them of wild life. You are the dogs who believe that white people are the solution to all problems, and made Guy Scott your vp. HH does not have a single white person in his cabinet.

  4. The Barotseland Agreement of 1964 and the issue of arbitrary borders in Africa are intertwined in their historical and contemporary significance. The agreement’s legacy and the experiences of the people of Barotseland underscore the importance of addressing historical injustices and working towards inclusive and equitable solutions within the context of African nation-states.

  5. Can someone please show this empty suit his job description. The country’s economy is in tatters, we have serious cholera and covid situations,…and instead of attending to these emergencies he goes to see ‘muzungu wopusa’. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with visiting the Scotts but do it on your day off preferably at the weekend privately with no press around you. What a useless president. Who cursed this country Lord

  7. @Ayatollah it was ECL who almost set the country on fire by attempting to seize power despite the constitution clearly stating that Scott became acting head of state as the sitting VP. Trying to subvert the constitutional order of succession is treason. As a lawyer Lungu would have known that he had no argument. The ‘instruments of power’ argument was for the people without a legal background to dupe them, but the lawyers knew and still know. Then the shenanigans at Mulungushi were organised by Wina and Lungu. It is one thing to back your candidate as Scott did, another to push people out of the conference with pangas. The slide we are still living through started with Lungu when Sata passed.
    Scott made his mistakes and has his faults. But that is one that cannot be pinned on him.

  8. The tribalists do not want to blame Edna Lungu, as they try to clean up this HIV infected plundering killer for a presidential run. The courts will bar the bitch, and the party of fools will be thrown into turmoil. A few of the buggers will line up behind Sampa, but that will be the end of all of them.

  9. Ba LT you got this story from Hamasaka ka?
    The true intro should be:
    In an amazing capitulation of opinion about a rival that he once called a stupid white man President Hakainde Hichilema visited Dr. Guy Scott at his residence in Lusaka
    The jury is out on whether this was a “demonstration of respect and recognition for the wealth of experience and insights held by former leaders”

    • One observer called Deja Vu detected some panic in President Hichilema’s visit given Zambia’s numerous problems: from inflation and a free-falling currency to an avoidable cholera epidemic through to Chipolopolo’s miserable perfomance at AFCON. Deja Vu felt HH was exhibiting behaviours of starving lions that eat grass when meat is scarce. Most observers think these could be figurative lions because in mankind’s existence we are yet to see a lion eating grass.
