MINISTER of Local Government and Housing Benny Tetamashimba, who is admitted to South Africa’s Morningside Medi-Clinic, is stable and out of danger.
And former freedom fighter Sikota Wina, who is admitted to Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg, is improving.
Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Leslie Mbula said yesterday that he had visited the two.
Mr Mbula said doctors had already examined Mr Tetamashimba and that he is awaiting results of the tests.
“Doctors have assured him that his vital organs like the heart, liver, lungs and kidneys are in good condition, which means he is out of danger….he should be out by Friday,” Mr Mbula said.
Mr Mbula also said Mr Wina’s condition has improved from the time he was admitted to Milpark Hospital.
“Mr Wina looks better than when he was admitted,” he said.
Mr Mbula said doctors at the hospital have done preliminary tests on him and that other tests will follow in due course.
“He is in a very good mood,” Mr Mbula said.
Mr Tetamashimba and Mr Wina were evacuated to South Africa on Tuesday.
