Ceremonial Vice President Guy Scott this (Monday) morning tasted his own medicine for calling Tongas a minority tribe when he abandoned landing at Railways Ground in Monze after hundreds of people converged at the ground to jeer him.
Scott is in Monze to represent government at the Lwiindi Ceremony of the Tonga.
When his Zambia Airforce chopper was about to land at the Railways Ground Scott was communicated to by the Intelligence about the impending embarrassment.
His Chopper was then diverted to the Harry Mwanga Nkumbula Stadium home to Monze Swallows Football Club leaving all dignitaries including Ministers and his advance party who were on hand to receive him in a huge cloud of dust that engulfed the commercial part of Monze town.
Scot’s security staff that accompanied him on the Chopper had to call theadvance party to go to the stadium to pick him.
Dignitaries and security staff had to speed out of Railway grounds also leaving a cloud of dust for the people who remained.
A few weeks ago, Guy Scott insulted the people of Southern Province by describing them as ‘small minority grouping’ without provocation from the people that side.
But when he was told that he would be the one to represent government at a traditional ceremony for the same ‘minority group’, Scott went to parliament to offer a half hearted apology just to make sure he goes to mingle and laugh with the same people he insulted.
Meanwhile, UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has arrived in Monze for the same ceremony to a thunderous welcome.
