Africa Sees First White President in 20 Years

Hosted by

As the ceremonial vice president of Zambia, Guy Scott, who’s a white man, said he often felt like a mascot at meetings of African leaders.  Now, with the death of  that country's elected president and as dictated by the constitution, Michael Sata, has become the interim president. But that’s only until the next election — which is called for in the next 90 days. Nicholas Chesseman, Associate Professor of African Politics at Oxford University, considers Scott's political future in a country with a booming economy.
