Political liars will be exposed – Scott

ALVIN CHIINGA, Lusaka
ACTING President Guy Scott has said that politicians that are telling lies during campaigns for next month’s presidential election will be caught up in their falsehoods because Zambians are now well informed.
And Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto, who was on holiday in Zambia, has described Zambians as welcoming and humble people.
“Zambian people are welcoming and this is what we have seen during our stay here. This country also has something to offer in terms of tourism,” he said.
Mr Ruto was speaking at Kasisi Orphanage yesterday where he had lunch with Dr Scott and members of staff.
He said Zambians, just like many other Africans, need to transform the continent from that of war, poverty and disease into one full of investment opportunities.
Mr Ruto, who donated US$20,000 to the orphanage, said that the continent should be looking at doing intra-Africa business so that economic development is enhanced.
He said this is possible in this generation because of the several bilateral and multilateral engagements that are currently underway in the continent.
Dr Scott said that celebrating the festive period with vulnerable children is the most profound thing that the State can ever do.
He noted that vulnerable people are usually forgotten during this period and that it is commendable for those that think of such people.
Dr Scott said that when Mr Ruto asked to pass through, he did not think of any cosy place but immediately thought of Kasisi orphanage.
He said that the orphans at Kasisi will forever think of the visit by him and Mr Ruto.
