Surgeons performing an operation on baby Faith Mwape, who had a parasitic growth on the back

A UNIVERSITY Teaching Hospital (UTH) medical team this week successfully carried out a surgical operation to remove the underdeveloped part of a Siamese twin.
This is the 18th Siamese twin operation by the UTH and eighth successful one performed at the institution since the 1970s.

The operation was conducted on a seven-month-old Siamese twin baby girl, Faith Mwape to remove the parasite on the buttocks.
Faith was born to Mercy Lenganji, 18, who got pregnant when she was in Grade 11 in Mufulira and was transferred to UTH on April 25, 2008.

Faith’s operation took the doctors one hour and 57 minutes and was led by chief operator, Tackson Lambart.
The operation, which began at 10:03 hours, was done by Lupando Munkonge of the paediatric surgery department and Dr Lambart, a neurosurgeon. Others were Mwanza Banda, a psychiatrist, Azizov Abdukarim, an anaesthetist, and Maundo Chowa of orthopaedics.

  1. Once again Jamaco
    Thanks for letting us know
    Picture 1: the only one that makes sense. I thank God for that successful operation and the hope for little Faith.
    I wonder, though, what RB and Bob are talking about?

  2. Now I have really taken a look, am nambala 3!! Kabili it is juts Baby C and Jamaco before me. Yeah, at least I can check out now

  3. #10, I agree, what makes this guy think UTH would never allow a black guy to do the operation. Are you related to RB & Govt? UTH has very qualified surgeons, the issue with UTH is equipment my friend. Have faith in your own people

  4. Lusaka

    You just brought back my senses. You mean thats the baby we saw in last weeks pictures???

    We give God the glory!!!!! [-o<

  5. 14. Papa J

    I have no doubt about the Quali of my people believe me!! That is the reason I am here :d

    My statement is simply based on that guy’s stance while operating!!

  6. Jamaco

    But tamulandile bwino papa! Please, withdraw your statement!! U.T.H Doctors have perfomed major operations than that one. Give credit were its due!!!

  7. Last week’s pictures were more diverse. This time it’s 90% political, Anyways, thanks LT. We really appreciate you sending out a camera man to capture these shots.

  8. JAMACO,
    THE GUY POSSING IS NOT A SURGEON , HE JUST HELPS WITH THE EQUIPMENT.
    DONT YOU WATCH ER, OR OTHER HOSPITAL DRAMAS?
    THE SURGEON ARE THE ONE IN LIGHT BLUE.

  9. Instead of arguing about surgeons’ qualifications, why don’t we all just pray for the poor girl who is/was operated. I think she & her family really need our prayers.
    So please help her Lord.[-o<

  10. #29 Baby C, you’re a naughty girl.[-x

    I think Mugabe was saying: “…I hope you haven’t revealed our secret, my nephew! And I hope you have finished biulding my house of exile!”
    :))

  11. “The operation was conducted on a seven-month-old Siamese twin baby girl, Faith Mwape to remove the parasite on the buttocks.
    Faith was born to Mercy Lenganji, 18, who got pregnant when she was in Grade 11 in Mufulira and was transferred to UTH on April 25, 2008.”

    I am happy for Faith Mwape and the mother Mercy Lenganji. Thank God, our creator, all went well regarding the operation. I wish the baby quick recurperation and good health now and in the future.

    Until the next time.

  12. BABY C AND NINE CHALE YOU ARE ALL WRONG!!!!

    RB WAS ASKING MUGABE;

    “HAVE YOU EVER TRIED A WHITE CHIC” ?

    AND THEN MUGABE ANSWERED;

    ” ONCE YOU GO BLACK , YOU WILL NEVER GO BACK” =))=))=))=))=))=))=))=))=))=))=))=))=))

  13. #30,

    Ba Mable na ba shibuka from that horrible incident…Ba Moze muli kwi?? mwaliseka sana ula bushiku..

    Ba RB bena at least his eyes are wide open…

  14. LETS PRAY ALL ,
    LORD LET THE OP GO AS PLANED AND BLESS THE BABY AND THE PARENTS,
    LORD I KNOW YOU ARE THE HEALER OF ALL HEALERS, I ASK IN THE NAME OF JESUS WHO NEVER CHANGES , HE IS THE SAME TODAY AND ALWAYS.

    I ALSO PRAY FOR ALL THE BLOGGERS, I KNOW WE ARE NOT PERFECT , BUT LORD PLEASE GORGIVE US , TEACH US TO BE JUST LIKE YOU. I PRAY FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE A NICE WKEND.
    AMEN.

  15. Jamaco, Nine Chale

    I think we are all wrong

    Bob was asking RB;

    Of late ,you ve been so close to Catherine Namugala, your tourism minister. Is there anything i should about you guys???? C’me on you are my friend, i will also tell you…about my o-+

  16. BABY C

    1. you are cute
    2. you are zambian
    3. you are a lady
    4. You are African
    5. You are a cute zambian lady proud to be African!!

    :d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d

  17. WE ARE ALL MISTAKEN!!

    MUGABE WAS TELLING RB

    ” RB LIKE MOST AFRICANS, YOU ARE LIKE A COCONUT ; OUTSIDE DARK AND INSIDE WHITE AND THAT IS WHY I WILL NEVER GIVE UP” :d

  18. Boring pictures LT.Dont only concentrate on politicians but you can do better better by showing us the real Zambians who are suffering in slums or schools in rural areas which would need our attention or intervention.

  19. Jamaco

    You ve just touched my soft spot! Go ahead! But the expiry date is midnight

    Sony I will tell Lt to include Kambeba on the List

    :o):o):o)

  20. jamaco they are all trained. Lupando Munkonge is a Prof of Peadiatric surgery with a lot of experience and probably when the photo was being taken the team was told that the picture was being taken 4 LT kanshi naine bakambone ati ekonali. by the way all of them are consultants. remember UTH is a training institution for zambia. nyaba bamambala abaya ku SA ngabalwala fimofimo abatumweneshamo. nechifine chonse ni ku SA.

  21. Why can’t you deal with the issue at hand? You have been given their back ground so whats the big deal. Do not think that your being out of Zed you are more than those in the country. You may just be toiling at school and wanting to make ends meet. Just concentrate on your studies and don’t be so negative about every issue. With that negativity you can not develop.

  22. #32, i am made to understandard that a Mr. Hamweete a Tonga by tribe from Monze is the one that impregnanted Mercy. These Tonga bulls……………….kine………..aalaaaaaa!

  23. I need 6 Numbers from anyone !!

    The Numbers should be between 0 and 49!!

    I need the Numbers for the German Lottery running at 35 Million Euros !

    please post the Numbers people. You will be rewarded!! I promise

    THIS IS A SERIOUS MATTER PLEASE POST THE NUMBERS!!!

  24. Jamako who ever you are, you must be very ignorant with the quality of surgeons we have back home. the only thing that makes us lag behind ni equipment. I think you dont even understand what operations cannot be done locally. UTH is a teaching hospital, so there are no halfcooked surgeons, they are consultants qualified and trained in countries where you are now begging for pennies, cents, and other currencies.I live outside Zed, but believe me some of things that we see in our surgeons, Doctors outside is great. Infact that baby te siamese iyo, she had a parasite which had no direct connections to delicate organs. Nafulwa sana,besides black niwe!

  25. For the attention of Jamaco. The people in the picture are some of the finest surgeons in Zambia. The guy at the top of the picture is Dr Abdul Karim, the lead anaesthetist in this operation. I can also recognise Mr Lambert, 1st on the left, and Prof Munkonge opposite him. These guys are not only trained, they train other doctors too.

  26. Thanks Malaika, this jamako will stop kubwetukabwetuka any how. Once somebody has a fixed idea about the colour, nothing is right in his eyes except the colour they know. wake up jamako, not all that glitters is Gold. Te bonse abasungu abasambilila please. Wikabwekeshapo umusalula oooooooooookey!

  27. week or weekend pictures in Zambia means RB and his fellow kabolalas? We are sick of seing these crooks pectures. LT, bring rural news (pictures). Do you only cover lusaka news? Its just the first picture that is million times interesting. The rest are rubbish.

  28. RB CAN ALSO SMILE IF U CAN CALL IT A SMILE? FIRST TIME I HAVE SEEN HIS PICTURE AWAKE AND WITH A SMILE OR LOUGH ON HIS FACE. KEEP IT UP SIR.

  29. Iwe chikamba No 4 ama Zambian baliba qualified. Learn to appreciate where you are coming from? Just because you are based in Germany does not make you white. Probably you clean vimbuzi uko. I am a proud Zedi product – Doctor. I am sure you face a lot of racism uko ku chalo. No wonder you spend so much time blogging! Oh I meant Hallucinating!

  30. Dr. Tuckson Lambart & Professor Lupando Munkonge and operating team are great. Given the necessary equipment and good incentives can perform wonders at UTH. Just channel a bit of the money spent on sending apamwamba to Milpark Clinic. Infact most of those who go out are attended by the same Zambians they downgrade here. These great men have stuck around to save lives of fellow Zambians and we appreciate their services. The other photos the same politicians politicking day in day out.

  31. LT, some people here are providing good caption ideas. Perhaps you should now introduce a “caption this” section to go with pictures.

  32. Well done UTH! We are proud of you despite government’s habit of wasting money on South African clinics. Doesn’t the minister of sport have anything more productive to do? I suppose he has no idea what his job is about. Ba Shikapwasha nabo is the same. He never passes up a photo opportunity. He has no value to add to broadcasting and communication.

    91. Chill and leave Jamaco alone. You should read further and you will see that the guy explained his point. Stop being haters.

  34. @ 91 Jamaco doesnt think, he passes comments even on things he doesnt fully understand.

    Zambian doctors are very qualified to do any sort of operation. The only let down is these things you call “leaders” – politicians that dont posses straight minds but are highly loaded with a complex of misplacing priorities and agenda.

    Given the right tools we can do any operation no matter how complex. With the little and very outdated equipment and machinery, doctors and other Zambian trained professionals do very commendable jobs.

    Wilalanda landafye iwe cimbusu boy![-x

  35. @96 96. Shi Mulase Kwipaya

    Jamaco this and Jamaco that !!!

    Jamaco is absolutely right in asking that question!!

    IT IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING THAT IS TOO LOW!!!
    YOU EVEN FAIL TO READ HIS ANSER AT NUMBER 19!!!
    YOU NUMBER 96 AND YOUR FREINDS ARE A TYPICAL EXAMPLE OF PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY WILL REMAIN VICTIMS THEIR ENTIRE LIVES!!!

    READ JAMACO ANSWER AT 19 FIRST BEFORE YOU BLABLABLA!!

    NOW MOVE OWN AND RESERVE YOUR EGO FOR SOMETHING IMPORTANT!!

  36. Does our Veep wear the right size of suits or things are just falling apart for our No.2. The man is educated fine and last year interpreted the law clearly following LPM’s death. Since assuming 2rd in command from the blues he started speaking in CAPITAL LETTERS.
    Could Cabinet recommend him to UTH for MEDIC CHECK by Dr, Tuckson Lambart and Prof. Lupando Munkonge team. They can fix him from bottom to top. We dont want to hear that No.2 Zambia has been flown to Milpark Clinic for milling into fine flour at the expense of Tax Payers sweat.

  37. No 100. Supporting blindly is no good. Look at the phrase this Jamaco of yours used. It simply implied all black guys doing the operation have questionable qualifications. It is this kind of colonial thinking which keeps us from progressing. Appreciate your own roots and praise God for giving these black guys complex skills to save the little girl’s life. Remember these are the same Docs who could save your own family back in Zedi.

    Are you are Victim? You still do not get the point do you?
    You are one saying that jamaco implies….

    Jamaco’s sentence is explained in Number 19!! C’mon

    You are the one is blind and you start making false statements about a sentence that is explained in 19!!

    Chill and move on!! Think about your heart!!

  39. 104. your flag Anonymous

    That was not denied by Jamaco !!

    Please read Number 19!!

    Jamaco also says that he was born in UTH!!

  40. I wonder what this JAMACO guy whose name sounds like a milling company is up to. HE is not different from the likes of RB who have no confidence in the UTH doctors. For your own information Zambia has some of the best Doctors who even treat you useless politicians when they go to SA. Have you been by the German racism?

  41. What does this JAMACO guy do in german. Its like he he just spend the whole of his time in front of the computer waiting for a new posting from LT to vomoting his nosense stuff. By the way I have never read any meaningful contribution from this guy. You are better off in Zed than delivering Pizza in German

  42. 107. your flag Anonymous

    you also sound very racist!!

    Who do you think you are? You are the one making Nonsense utterances here!!
    If someone works on the computer is it surprising to you that they are more Online than you.

    Just because you Clean roads it doese not mean that this guy says pizza in Germany.
    Whoever you are you have no Manners!! That is why you are Anonymous because you make no sence Hater!!

  43. Ba Kunda kubwaiche mwali bachililalila efyo akanwa kabela ifyo. No kwenda kwati jelly fish olo akamwana kalesambilila ukwenda, You really suffocate me.
