Opinion – Muzungu Opusa – Guy Scott’s Inconsistencies

On May 16, 2013 Vice-President Guy Scott challenged Zambians to vote the ruling Patriotic Front government out of office if they think it was not delivering. This statement – Vote PF Out If They Fail-Scott – was a screaming headline in the compromised Post Newspaper.

And for sure there are a number of promises the PF has not delivered on but the verdict will be left to Zambians when 2016 beckons.

But barely seven months later specifically February 19, 2014, the same Guy Scott turned around and through the same medium – The Post – a screaming headline attributed to the man now fondly referred as ceremonial vice-president read “Give Us 20 YRS [Years]… Govt Can’t Be Changed Like Underwear.”

Now these are moments you would look for Hakainde Hichilema, the UPND leader, to provide answers as to how he knew what the muzungu opusa Guy Scott was.

You can’t even fault Kabwata member of parliament Given Lubinda for refusing to dignify the stupidity in Guy Scott whose derogatory language towards Zambians is nothing but racist.

Guy Scott, with a typical colonial mentality and farm like style of management, has called Zambians monkeys through their members of parliament.

He has called the people of Kabwata dogs through Lubinda. And this is the man we are supposed to respect as Vice-President. How would the people of Kabwata have made such a decision to elect a dog for an MP.

Fortunately, with a lot of maturity, Lubinda has told his supporters not to respond to Guy Scott because obviously it will be difficult for the ordinary people to tell who the fool if they engaged in an argument is.

Yet these two print-outs from The Post show what a foolish and highly inconsistent Vice-President Zambians have for anyone with a sane functional brain will not be consistently good at such inconsistencies.
