—–Vice President, Guy Scott, has castigated the Unite Party for National Development (UPND) and some sections of society for telling lies over the health of Republican President Michael Sata.
Dr Scott said it is regrettable for the opposition political party and some members of society to wish the head of state a bad health and described such ongoing rumours as malicious.
He said President Michael Sata is fit and is the only leader who has the good will of the Zambians and urged the Zambian people to continue supporting him so that he can take this country to a greater prosperity.
Dr Scott was speaking in Kapiri Mposhi district over the weekend where he was drumming up support for the PF candidate, Eddie Musonda, in the April 23 Parliamentary by-election.
And Dr Scott has urged the people of Kapiri Mposhi to vote for PF candidate, Eddie Musonda, in the April 23 Parliamentary by- election in Kapiri Mposhi Constituency.
Dr Scott said Mr Musonda is the best candidate for people of Kapiri Mposhi because he understands the many challenges that the people are facing, among them lack of good road network and proper health facilities.
The Kapiri Mposhi parliamentary seat fell vacant after the Supreme Court nullified the election of MMD Parliamentary candidates, Lawrence Zimba, and the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) set April 23 as the date for the by-elections.
Other participating political parties in the Kapiri Mposhi by-election are the UPND which has fielded Lawrence Zimba as its candidate while the United National Independence Party (UNIP) has Francis Mwape as its candidate.
