People’s Party President Mike Mulongoti has observed that the gaps in the constitution have largely contributed to the  confusion in the country following the death of President Michael Sata.

Mr Mulongoti points out that it was unZambian for acting President Guy Scott to act in the manner he did when he revoked the appointment of Edgar Lungu as PF Secretary General when the late President has not yet been buried.

Mr. Mulongoti however notes that the draft constitution released recently has tried to close the gaps that exist in the current constitution.

Mr. Mulongoti says by acting in the manner he did, Dr. Scott has created a problem for himself and has made Zambians to lose confidence in him.


He has advised the PF to be careful in the way they handle matters during the transition because it has potential of making people to lose confidence in the party.

Mr. Mulongoti says the ruling party should for the moment concentrate on mourning the departed president and deal with pending issues after the burial.
