Acting President Guy Scott has cancelled all cabinet and PF meetings and has declared 14 days national mourning for late president Michael Sata.
Today’s scheduled and Cabinet Meetings have been cancelled and no meeting will take place until after the burial of Sata.
Scott has also cancelled a PF central committee meeting that was supposed to take place today.
When Scott cancelled the cabinet meeting, some members were already at the venue.
Scott has seeming cancelled the meetings after Chishimba Kambwili’ s comments that he will force him to hand over power to Edgar Lungu, the defence minister and Sata’s clearly preferred acting president.
It was Scott who called for an emergency meeting just to cancel it after being warned of hostility from most members.
Scott is facing mounting hostility from most cabinet ministers and PF leaders and by cancelling the meeting, he has just suspended the problem.
