White man’s burden

IT WAS too ambitious for a Cabinet of black men and women to expect a principled resignation from Dr. Guy Scott. He carries the white man’s burden.

Expel Scott

THE disregard with which Dr. Scott is treating Zambians is an insult to all well-meaning Zambians. First of all Dr. Scott has no right to write to the Chief Justice on a matter that is subsisting before the courts.

That Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa will be heard in the High Court over his demand to be joined to a consent judgment entered into between Patriotic Front president Edgar Lungu and the party’s secretary general Davis Chama, is commendable.

ERB not telling the whole truth

  The Energy Regulation Board is being less than truthful in the manner it is responding to the “delusory” reductions in fuel prices.
