Sata appoints Lungu acting President

PRESIDENT Michael Sata has appointed home affairs minister Edgar Lungu as acting president.

And President Sata on Wednesday asked if defence minister Geoffrey Mwamba had stopped ‘fighting’ with justice minister Wynter Kabimba.

When he arrived at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport around 21:00 hours, President Sata jokingly instructed Lungu to discipline Kabimba.

“Mr President, have you seen this one? You must discipline him,” he said as Lungu responded; “right now I can’t do anything Your Excellency but I will discipline him as soon as you take off.”

The President also told Inspector General of police Stellah Libongani to discipline his aide-de-camp whom he said did not know the way around the airport.

“What kind of ADC is this one”, President Sata who normally flies to the airport by helicopter asked as he disembarked from the presidential Mercedes Benz. Where is the IG? Where did you get this man? Can you discipline him.
