And Mr. Lungu who sat next to Dr. Scott, has observed that there is no winner or loser in the reconciliation that has taken place in the ruling PF.
Mr. Lungu notes that the reconciliation that has taken place is package that includes not only Dr. Scott but all other party members such as Miles Sampa who is the Commerce Deputy Minister and the PF Matero Member of Parliament.
