Ceremonial vice-president Guy Scott has The Post newspaper that the opposition should criticise the government with “decency” and not being “personally offensive” to those in leadership.
“As the President has said, ‘it is their job to attack’, otherwise they are not opposition. Let them stay within the bounds of decency, not peddling stories about people dying. You know spreading stories on Zambian Watchdog that me, I have got Parkinson disease,” Vice-President Dr Scott said. “Do they even know what Parkinson disease is? Let them stay within the bounds of decency, not to be personally offensive; not misinforming people. Let them criticise. They opposition party leaders are free to do so. That is their job,” Scott to the Post newspaper.
Last week, the Zambianwatchdog reported and still insist that our vice-president was diagnosed with Parkinson disease a while ago in his native United Kingdom hospital.
Highly placed State House sources told the Watchdog that Scott has either already asked fellow ailing leader president Michael Sata to relieve him or is supposed to do anytime soon as he can hardly handle a pen due to massive shaking.
In reporting this, the Watchdog does not expect Scott or indeed anyone in their government full of liers to admit as was the case with late Information and Broadcasting Minister Kennedy Sakeni who they kept mocking in his illness that he was well till his death recently and hurriedly replaced by Sata’s relative.
Also interestingly, Scott and president Sata are now calling for decency in criticism of those in leadership when them behaved like mad wild dogs in criticising their opponents and colleagues such as late Levy Mwanawasa, George Kunda, and Anderson Mazoka when they were in similar unfortunate situations.
