FORMER Republican Vice-President Guy Scott should be the last person to accuse the Patriotic Front (PF) of being corrupt, Zambia National Republic (ZRP) president Wright Musoma has said.
He said the Zambian people expected Dr. Scott, as a senior citizen, to be more civilised and mature.
Mr. Musoma was commenting on Dr. Scott’s accusations that PF was corrupt and that was why everybody had run away from the party.
He urged Zambians not to take such accusations serious, saying that Dr. Scott had not still gotten over the fact that President Lungu was chosen leader, hence trying to find faults.
“Zambians are not dull people and they cannot be fooled. We all know why he defected to UPND. He is still bitter and he can’t stand seeing Lungu as Republican President.
“He has not gotten over the fact that President Lungu was chosen, so he is trying to make up stories to make Zambians turn against their President and the PF, but ‘aloba ilyauma’ that will never happen because people are able to see and judge,” said Mr. Musoma.
He charged that Dr. Scott was the last person to say PF was corrupt as he was in the party’s leadership for a long time and praised the party for being the best Zambia has ever had.
Mr. Musoma challenged Dr. Scott to prove his allegations by following right procedures and reporting the alleged corrupt activities by the ruling party to relevant authority.
“He should be the last person to accuse PF to be corrupt; especially when he can’t pick on the kind of corruption. If PF is corrupt, then he must be the most corrupt person because he was with them.
“Dr. Scott was vice president and he knows the right channels to us. If he knows PF is corrupt, why can’t he report to the relevant authorities?
Let him tell the people what this corruption is talking about with proof. Otherwise, Zambians should just ignore him. He’s just a loser,” he said.
