Zambia’s Guy Scott Became Africa’s First White President On Wednesday After The President, Michael Sata, Died Under Mysterious Circumstances
Zambia’s Guy Scott became Africa’s first White president on Wednesday after the president, Michael Sata, died under mysterious circumstances in a London hospital. Guy Scott will be the first White leader since South Africa’s F.W. de Klerk l…ost to Nelson Mandela in the 1994 election that ended apartheid. Scott, 70, is ineligible to run for the presidency in the election because of citizenship restrictions, leaving defence minister Edgar Lungu and finance minister Alexander Chikwanda the most likely contenders for the ruling Patriotic Front party’s ticket, analysts say.
