President Michael Sata has again left the instruments of power in the hands of Finance minister Alexander Chikwanda side-lining PF vice president Guy Scott again.
Sata left for Brazil through South Africa last night. He is accompanied by a group of ministers, Elias Chipimo and two other officials from Chipimo’s party.
Sata was seen off at the airport by Guy Scott, Alexander Chikwanda and all defence and security commanders.
After Sata boarded the plane, all the service chiefs saluted Alexander Chikwanda signifying the temporary passing of power to him.
Guy Scott had to step back for the acting president to leave the airport first.
