Lusaka – Zambians have been commenting on the spat between their deputy president and South Africa.

Guy Scott recently called South Africans backwards and South African Parliament in Pretoria have demanded an explanation.

Zambian opposition leader Hakaimbe Hichilema's lashed out at Scott; calling him “the stupidest white man” he's met.

Ordinary Zambians, though, seem to be divided on the matter.
