GUY Scott and his friend Wynter Kabimba caused a lot of chaos in the Patriotic Front (PF) during the time they were scheming to hijack the leadership of the ruling party and even created what they termed the A-Team which deeply caused the division of the party, Julius Komaki has charged.
Mr Komaki claimed that it was during the time Mr Kabimba was Justice Minister and secretary general of the PF with Dr Scott as PF and republican Vice-President that the ruling party experienced the worst form of chaos because the duo had created parallel structures within the ruling party.
He has also demanded that Dr Scott should be made to account how he single-handedly managed the funeral of late President Michael Sata because he had banned all Cabinet and PF central committee meetings at the time.
Mr Komaki, who is former PF Lusaka district youth vice chairman, said Dr Scott and Mr Kabimba had allegedly betrayed Mr Sata even before he died and that the two men would be politically haunted by their actions.
Mr Komaki said the confusion and chaos in the PF reached its peak when President Sata travelled to Israel for medical attention and left Dr Scott and Mr Kabimba, who was then acting President at the time, in charge of the party and government.
He said in an interview that threats by Dr Scott that he together with Miles Sampa and other disgruntled former PF members were going to cause chaos in the PF until President Edgar Lungu was defeated would be met by equal political force because the ruling party had managed to rebuild and rebrand itself under the leadership of President Edgar Lungu.
“Guy Scott and his progeny Wynter Kabimba caused a lot of chaos when they were in the PF. The PF was deeply divided and we remember that it was Dr Scott who announced that there was the A-Team in the PF which included Mr Kabimba, Dr Scott himself and President Sata.
‘‘Dr Scott and Mr Kabimba failed to hijack the PF at the time and if he thinks he will be able to cause chaos in the PF and the country as a whole, let them be advised that he is of no political consequence.
The PF has been rebranded by President Lungu and no amount of propaganda will destabilise the party and the Head of State,” Mr Komaki said.
He said it was not a secret that when Dr Scott and Mr Kabimba were members of the PF, the ruling party was deeply divided because a surrogate government was created within the PF government.
Mr Komaki recalled that it was during the time Mr Kabimba was secretary general of the PF that he almost lost his life after cadres who were championing for the second term for President Sata clashed with those who were opposed to the campaign for the re-election of Mr Sata.
He said he was lucky to have survived the bloody clash and that the divisions in the PF were largely created by Dr Scott who had formed the A-Team in the PF which was rejected by genuine and loyal members of the ruling.
He said following the death of President Sata, Dr Scott fought the adoption of President Lungu with all his mighty but he was defeated by the mighty of Zambians who were determined to protect the PF from being taken over by a clique of individuals whose agenda was to turn Zambia into a dictatorship.
