A few stories you may have missed.
There's circus in PF today. Guy Scott fired PF Secretary General Edgar Lungu MP and appointed Davies Mwila MP. Only for Mwila to decline the appointment publicly saying, "he cannot belittle the late head of State by not mourning him with dignity". Information reaching us is that Edgar Lungu has also in fact refused to step down.
Cabinet Ministers are lining up behind Edgar and are calling on Guy Scott to rescind his decision. Tourism Minister Jean Kapata says Scott should not make a decision alone without involving the central committee of governing party. Chishimba Kambwili MP says some cabinet ministers will be meet Scott to iron out the matter.

Constitutional Lawyer John Sangwa has told ZNBC that, as we have said before, it is wrong to call Guy Scott 'Acting President' because the constitution does NOT provide for that position. He is still Vice President Scott and that should be the correct address.
Separately, Zambia Voice Executive Director Chilufya Tayali says his organisation is taking the succession matter to court contending that VP Scott does not qualify to exercise the delegated presidential functions. This follows revelations that the Attorney General misled the country, and possibly cabinet, over the George Mpombo precedent. It turns out there was no such precedent.
