UNPD a long way to forming govt - Scott

VICE-President Guy Scott says UPND is a long way to being voted into government. During a rally at Milengwe Basic School in Masaiti to drum up support for the PF candidate in the Kafulafuta by-election James Chishiba on Saturday, Vice-President Scott said UPND had 10 to 20 years before the party could be in power.

"UPND has MPs from Southern Province and Western Province and the party has none from the rest of the country. UPND has a long way before they can take power, maybe 10 to 20 years," he said.

Vice-President Scott also revealed that some political parties were spreading lies that President Michael Sata was sick and would die soon.

"Some parties are spreading lies that President Sata is sick. President Sata is okay, he is well. They are even saying that there will be another presidential by-election because President Sata will die. What they are saying are lies," he said.

And Vice-President Scott said it was sad that UPND was spreading rumours that the PF government was not going to give farmers fertiliser on time when fertiliser was already on the Copperbelt and ready to be distributed.

Meanwhile, Vice-President Scott's wife Charlotte urged women in Kafulafuta to take advantage of the many developmental and women empowerment projects that the PF government had put in place because they were going to put more money in their handbags.

She said the PF government had good intentions for Zambia and that Zambians should support it because it was going to build schools, hospitals and good roads.
