Sata suddenly cancels swearing-in ceremony
President Michael Sata was supposed to swear-in some yet to be identified officials but the ceremony was called off without explanation.
The government-controlled news agency has circulated a news diary that Sata will be swearing in some people this morning but it later said the ceremony had been postponed to Monday.
It is not yet known who was supposed to be sworn in but it could be an opposition MP who changed his mind at the last minute.
Or maybe the opposition MP did not change his mind but Sata who often walks with the aide of walking-stick nowadays is not feeling well and can not stand long enough to peep into cameras.
