Scott is to hold the position for 90 days to allow Zambians go to the polls for Presidential election. The 70-year-old was said to be happy being the first African White President since the end of apartheid and was also reported to have said this new appointment came as "a bit of a shock to the system". He further added that "I'm very proud to be entrusted with it".
