Government is investigating former Vice President Guy Scott over his newly-published book in which he reveals what caused the death of former president Michael Sata.
In his book “Adventure in Zambian Politics, A Story in Black & White”, Dr. Scott publishes Sata’s death certificate, a matter that has stirred social media debate and public concern.
According to the death Certificate published in the Book, Carcinoma cancer is what killed Michael Sata.
Sata’s family is also reportedly disturbed at the revelations.
At a media briefing in Lusaka today, Information and Broadcasting Minister Dora Siliya says cabinet is studying the matter and the nation will be advised in due course.
Some Zambians have taken to social media to condemn Dr. Scott after it was revealed that a chapter in his hard hitting political memoir contains a copy of late President Michael Sata’s death certificate.
Dr. Guy Scott was acting president of Zambia after the death of President Michael Sata. Prior to that, he was Vice President (2011–2014) and has also served as Minister of agriculture and an opposition leader in the Zambian parliament.
