Republican Vice President Guy Scott has declined to comment on Israeli media reports that President Michael Sata was admitted to Sheba Medical Center in Israel until Thursday last week when he left hospital.
In an article posted on its website on 30th June headlined: ‘Zambian president had been at Sheba: Is not in critical condition,’ Haaretz quoting Israeli officials also indicated that President Sata may even meet with outgoing Israeli president Shimon Peres later this week.
But when contacted for comment on the Israeli online publication’s claims, Dr. Scott told Qfm News in a telephone interview that the Patriotic Front government does not clarify information published on online media unless such information has been published in the name of the editor and companies.
And asked whether there are any further updates with regards President Sata’s visit to Israel, Dr. Scott said that government will give updates if there any and as things happens.
Dr Scott last week told Parliament that President Sata is in Israel on a private working holiday and it is not known when he will return home.
There has been growing public speculation on the President’s visit to the Jewish State.
