Zambia's President Scott suspended as ruling party leader

LUSAKA (Reuters) - Zambia's ruling Patriotic Front said on Friday it had suspended President Guy Scott as acting head of the party for "unconstitutional conduct", in the latest twist of a bitter power struggle ahead of a January election.

Scott, who became Africa's first white head of state in 20 years when Michael Sata died last month, is still a member of the PF and Zambia's leader, but will not be eligible to stand in the Jan. 20 presidential vote because his parents were British.
