Zambia Gets First White President As President Sata Passes Away

share on:

Vice President Guy Scott was sworn in today as the interim president of Zambia following the death of Zambian president, Michael Sata yesterday Oct. 28th after a long protracted illness. This makes Mr Scott, who is of Scottish descent but born in Zambia, the first white president in Africa since apartheid.

Guy Scott, 70, became Vice-president of Zambia in 2011 and will serve as interim-president pending when the country holds fresh elections for a new president within 90 days. The Zambian constitution makes it impossible for Scott to be president because his parents were not born in Zambia.
