Lusaka – The Patriotic Front Central Committee has suspended Acting Party and Republican President Guy Scott from the party for sixty days with immediate effect.
The Central Committee has also asked the PF Secretary General Bridget Attanga to handover all application letters for nomination of party Presidency to the committee.
“The central committee of the PF has decided to suspend Dr. Guy Scott as acting president of the party for unconstitutional conduct and for abrogating the party constitution,” PF central committee member Malozo Sichone told a media briefing.
Since the passing of President Michael Sata, there has been a notable power struggle among the leadership of the PF, including an attempt by Guy Scott to suspend the PF Secretary General Edgar Lungu, who was then later reinstated following street protests.
