Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz has reported that Zambian President Michael Sata has been discharged from the Sheba Medical Center where he had been receiving treatment and that he was “not in critical condition” during his stay at the facility.

Quoting an Israeli, the paper said that president Sata is “not in critical condition,” and that he may even meet with outgoing Israeli president Shimon Peres later this week.

“He was at Sheba Medical Center until Thursday when he left that hospital,” Haaretz was told by the source. Israeli sources confirmed Monday that his condition is “not critical.”

The Israeli Foreign Ministry confirmed Monday that Sata is in Israel for a working visit, but declined to elaborate.

    • Since when has it become fashionable for anyone on a purported working holiday, not be in a “critical condition”. Not being in a critical condition may simply mean somebody has been stabilised, that doesn’t mean there still Not Sick and Dying.

      Love leave Zambia, we will erase this comedy of an era from our books soon.

    • LOL!!!!

      OK, so in short we should ask the ministry of Health in Zed to make statements on all our tourists. Yes – Livingstone, Lower Zambezi, Mfuwe, etc….

      ….telling us that they are “not in critical condition”? VIVA ZWD!!!!

    • We all know Sata that he sick, because KK look more healthy than Sata. And I don’t find it illegal to have medical treatment anywhere on this earth.
      The illegal and worst sin Sata has committed is allowing Kabimba to exist. Why bewitching Sata and not Kabimba? I find life so unfair.

    • @ Mushonyo & Saulofyo

      It is most unfortunate that 100% of tourists visiting Zambia are not allowed by law to be involved in Zambian political activities.
      Having said that, how many of this tourists will spend “working holidays” in UTH?

  1. how do those wishing for president to be in a critical condition feel to hear such news? The thing is God has his time to get each one of us. And it seems this not time for sata as some of us were wishing. Am sure its hurting.. Viva sata.

    • No one wishes him to be in a critical condition as you put it but why would he be out of danger a man who is enjoying his holiday? Call a spade a spade. The watchdog is proving to be real again. You create problems out of nothing. What is wrong in telling people the truth remember he is our leader and we need to know so that if there is something wrong we can pray for him.

    • Why couldn’t he just get some “annointed water” from the river jordan and drink it to heal his illness? Kaili ni bacatholic ba mudala balikwata icichetekelo “faith”… surely “annointed water straight from the holyliest of lands should be more powerful than the water sold with TB Joshua’s stickers! Te?

    • Some who are hoping for Sata’s quick death so that they can rule in his place may one day be in the grave while their widows receive Sata’s condolences.
      God has all our lives in His hands, even a very sick and old man H e can heal. It is simply demonic to wish death for anyone, even if you politically disagree with him. Satan is ruling in the hearts of many whose ill-willed comments I see here

  2. just the psychology of the use of the phrase ‘not in a critical condition ‘ when somebody on a working holiday speaks volumes.

    • So does “not in critical condition” mean “in good health”???

      Or does it mean he is not in a coma on life support machines?

      Psychiatrist, does that mean his BRAIN is functioning correctly?

      Time for a Medical Board to put an end to speculation.

  3. just the psychology of the use of the phrase ‘not in a critical condition ‘ when somebody is on a working holiday speaks volumes.

  4. The people in government should learn to tell the truth to the people who voted for the president. Why should a foreign government be giving us reliable updates than our own? This is very embarrassing for the nation!

  5. Whatever the case with Sata is,we just want our republic back into sanity,rule of law and its destiny determined by Zambians themselves.

  6. Strange news!
    (1) “President Michael Sata has been discharged from the Sheba Medical Center where he had been receiving treatment and that he was “not in critical condition” during his stay at the facility.”

    (2) “The Israeli Foreign Ministry confirmed Monday that Sata is in Israel for a working visit, but declined to elaborate.”

    This could be the work of George Chellah as directed by his boss Fred Mmembe. The simple arithmetic just does not add up well.

    • EVEN IN YOUR OWN HOUSE, YOUR WIFE WILL PROTECT YOU IN WHATEVER YOU DO IN BED OR IN YOUR TOILET. SO BE CAREFULL THE WAY YOU ARE COMING OUT YOU FOOL. WHAT IF IT WERE YOU MOTHER OR FATHER WHO IS SICK HOW YOU FEEL IF PEOPLE WERE COMMENTING LIKE THIS. GOD IS THE ANSWER AND IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN I PERSONALY FEEL YOU SHOULD CHARGE THE WAY YOU ARE COMING OUT. ALL OF YOU WHISHING HIM DEAD KNOW THAT YOU WILL DIE BEFORE HIM. LOOK BACK TODAY AND TOMORROW YOU WILL LOOK UP. SORRY TO SAY THIS TO ALL OF YOU BLOGGARS WHO HAVE ILL INTENTIONS OF OUR PRESIDENT. WE KNOW THIS IS COMING FROM ONE TRIBE AND IF YOU FEEL YOU CAN RULE ZAMBIA BASED ON THIS ONE TRIBE THEN YOU ARE NOT A GOOD TRIBE AT ALL. ZAMBIANS BE AWARE OF THIS. AND WHAT IS WRONG FOR WINTER TO BE ACTING PRESIDENT? WHOM DO YOU WANT YOURSELVES?

  7. The current Zambian government system is absolutely rotten and there is no truth that one get from whatever is talked about by those in government. Sata taught them to lie and they also lie all the time to people around them and to themselves. What can one hide in today’s world which cannot be revealed ? What these imbeciles don’ t realise is that Sata is the property of the people of Zambia having elected him into the presidency as such they have got every right to know wherever he is even his condition as well. Why should his whereabouts be kept as a secret ? It’ s like we have got a lot of useful i.d.i.o.t. s in the current Zambian government setup.

    • Actually us people who believe the ZWD have been vindicated. Your PF said he was going to woo investors and meet Peres. Our ZWD said he was sick and going for treatment. Israeli press have confirmed that he was going for treatment so irrespective of his condition now, which story would you rather lean on as being closer to the actual truth? ZWD or PF?

    • Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz has reported that Zambian President Michael Sata has been discharged from the Sheba Medical Center where he had been receiving treatment and that he was “not in critical condition” during his stay at the facility.
      Sata is “not in critical condition,” Sata is “not in critical condition,”Sata is “not in critical condition,” and will woo woo woo woo woo the infestors.

  8. This is good news. We may not like him but he has a right to life like all of us. Even prisoners on death roll are not wished sickness. Just work hard and win the election not inheriting dead mans’ posts. Poor strategy

  9. Banana Republic! This is absurd why should Citizens of Zambia have to rely on Foreign media to learn about the condition of their President? PF should step down. They have failed.

  10. RB’s working holidays would be in Mfuwe National park with no access to medical facilities to raise any suspicions.

  11. We weretold nothing about him in hospital.The story was ‘he was on a working holiday’. Now this story about being in hospital yaisamo shani? King Cobra alilwala, natusumine bane.

  12. Gullibillity of some Zambians never ceases to amaze me. The Israeli govt makes a non-committal statement about Ukwa’s health and some of them start calling for the death of Zambian Watchdog when it is the Watchdog that broke the news about his hospitalisation in Israel in the first place! Where he has gone to, we dont know, nor do we know anything about his purported meeting with the outgoing Israeli president which raises questions in itself. We have not been availed any photographic to show that Ukwa indeed is not in a critical attention and lets not forget that the Israeli govt would rather not have to deal with this Sata-n Hussein issue at this time when three Israeli settlers have been murdered.

    • I know its not good news for you to hear that the president is not in critical condition . Well it is the truth that you have to live with after all when Zambian watchdog first quoted Israel media, you did not dispute just because they told you what you wanted to hear.

    • @bob continue sacking lies as for me i cannot. In this modern world of technology why should this happen? why would the Israeli media report on our behalf when We have our own reporters. This leaves more stones uncrushed and raises more speculations.

  13. July 15, 2008 LUSAKA(AFP) — Zambia’s main opposition Tuesday called for a medical investigation to determine whether President Levy Mwanawasa is capable of ruling the country after suffering a stroke.

    Michael Sata, leader of the Patriotic Front, said there was an urgent need to establish the condition of Mwanawasa, who is in intensive care in France since suffering a stroke over two weeks ago.

    “The doctors should examine him and inform the nation the correct position over his sickness,” Sata said in a radio address.

    He said Vice-President Rupiah Banda should immediately convene a special meeting of cabinet and appoint a medical team to travel to France to examine Mwanawasa, following reports that he is in a critical condition.

    “The nation wants to know the truth. Nobody…

    • ” Do unto others as you would have others do unto you”.

      There we have it from SATAs own mouth.

      Can the Zambian people have a Medical Board of Inquiry as SATA has asked for for Mwanawasa please?

      Government are you listening?

  14. Continued—————————-

    “The nation wants to know the truth. Nobody believes the statements being given by government,” Sata said.

    June 30, 2014, Sata is in the same condition Levy was!

  15. It’s really amazing how docile and plain lunatic some fanatical supporters of PF can be. Their govt is fuc!king them right, left and center but it’s fine for them. It’s like a wife hanging on to her abusive wife batterer husband for the sake of marriage. It’s okay for them to rely on rumors, speculation and foreign media for information about their dying president. Rumors again are that he has been evacuated to destination unknown, and to hell with meeting Shimon Peres, the beach and wooing investors. Now when there’s a clamp down on truth about Sata’s health and whereabouts, are we wrong to suppose he is either dead or dying? Please wake up!

    • @kim
      If some one is denying me that which I am by rights entitled to I have every reason to make assumptions about them. In this particular situation PF is acting extremely stu!pid. My responsibilty is then to penetrate their small minds to arrive at the truth they are hiding and it’s stup!dily simple to determine that. But if you, on the other hand, are comfortable with lies upon lies heaped on you and find nothing wrong with that, if your mind works like that, who am I to change that? My mind, unfortunately, is not a lethargic one that moves phlegmatically, to arrive at even simple problems.

  16. Bafika**! Quite talking about weather some present is sick or not! Remember that besides being president he is somebody’s father, grandfather and husband just like your parents. imagine we were all counting down the days and hours to when your dads were going to die and doing that in such forums, how would you feel? yes he is a public figure but that doesn’t deprive him of his human dignity. Weather you like it or not Zambia voted him into office and Zambians will vote him out office. They might even vote for him again in 2016 and it will be you young ones dying of heart attacks ku Chikonko!!

  17. why keep on debating on the health status of the president when you are told you are not willing to listen. The man is reported not having been critically ill and you keep on disputing the news coming from Israel. Ask questions and answer yourselves- “Ziyankeni mweka”

    earlier on I said that there is no need to bring politics on the health of some one.

  18. If you donot do your job properly you live room for others to fill the gaps and its as easy as that. We Zambian are very good at comparing with others and do not want to originate anything new. But in all fairness this president set a very bad precedent and it has come to hort him bad time. My prayer is God’s will be done because He has a plan for this country, if only we got on our knees to pray for the country. Mr. sata holds a very important position for this country now. May the Good Lord protect him. Amen

  19. What are the PF liars and their supporters going to say now. This is further confirmation that Sata has been and still is in a medical facility receiving treatment contrary to the pathetic lies that have been told.
    The report adds that ‘Sata MAY even meet the outgoing Israeli leader which actually means the man is SICK. What working holiday is done in a hospital bed? Ridiculous!

  20. Lets us get sober. We have 2 years then we can decide through the ballot. There will be lots of confussion should Sata die now.

  21. Give credit to the ZWD. without the Watchdog we would have not known that Sata is in Israel for treatment. speculations about because of PF’s secrecy. in any case we wish Sata quick recovery and the watchdog to keep watching

  22. OH NO. THIS IS BAD NEWS FOR HH AND UPND. THE MAN WHOM THEY THOUGHT WAS DEAD IS NOW ALIVE. BABA. HIS CONDITION WAS NOT CRITICAL. THE ZWD AND FOLLOWERS ARE NOW TALKING WITH FOLKED TONGUES. EVEN IF SATA CAME BACK AS A CORPSE, HH WILL STILL NEVER BE PRESIDENT. HOW COME THE OPPOSITION IS MORE INTERESTED IN SATAS HEALTH THAN THE PF OR EVEN MORE THAN SATAS OWN FAMILY ISELF. MULENGA SATA IS BUSY WOOING INVESTORS FROM KOREA BUT THE EVIL EYE OF HH/ZWD/UPND IS STILL ROAMING ABOUT LOOKING FOR ANYTHING BAD THAT MAY HAPPEN TO SATA.

    • You sound like a poet. I can picture you mu chitenge going ‘AFRICA! MOTHER AFRICA!’ As for Sata, dead or not makes no difference. Zambia ceased having a president mu 2011. Sata can hang on to his tuma remnants of health but he is just postponing the inevitable removal of PF. Besides, he is proof that the good are the ones who die early.

  23. thank GOD shame on you ba manson mabisi.soon you ka small hungry hyena will die of jealous soon. your Excellence president sata remain blessed we love you.abash jealous mabisi people

  24. IF YOU HAVE THE MEANS, PLEASE SUBJECT YOURSELF TO PERIODIC MEDICAL CHECKS IF YOU:

    1. HAVE HAD A PREVIOUS MEDICAL CONDION OF CONCERN – like HE has.
    2. ARE ABOVE 60 – your organs are exchusted.

    RB IS ALWAYS IN SA NOWADAYS FOR MEDICAL CHECKS – good guy.
    I WISH CHILUBA AND LEVY HAD BEEN WISE ENOUGH AND TAKEN THESE MEASURES – termites made a good meal of them before their time.

    • @ luapula 5tupid

      Can you PLEASE comment on Ministers absolute disregard as to the transparency and threatening voters in order to cover-up FACT that HE the President was admitted for medical treatment in Israel?

  25. chisenga mwaiche give Sata a kidney why should you be walking around with 2 kidneys when your idol desperately needs one, you don’t need Dr Kaseba to educate you of how more than 50 years of smoking will turn your liver into charcoal , you only know of PF Sata, you don’t know about the UNIP and MMD sata who was a heavy smoker, that’s why you think he is as fit as you, let me tell you again the man is sick, let him just admit, and Zambians will greatly appreciate him for his honest, this trying to be a macho-man will kill him fast .

    • IWE CHISELU. SATA MAY HAVE RISKED HIS LIFE IN THOSE DAYS AND HE IS SURELY PAYING FOR IT. MY POINT IS THAT IT IS INHUMAN TO WISH SOMEONE DEATH SO THAT YOU TAKE OVER FROM HIM. HH CANNOT WIN AN ELECTION ON A CLEAN SLATE. UNLESS MAZOKA DIES THATS WHEN HH CAN ASCEND TO POWER. IN THE SAME WAY HH/UPND/ZWD ARE HOPING THAT IF SATA DIES THEN THEY CAN ASCEND TO POWER. THESE GUYS ARE SO WEAK THAT ONLY OVER THE DEAD BODY OF AN OPPONENT CAN THEY ASCEND TO POWER. SO HH/UPND/ZWD ARE THE “AXIS OF EVIL”.
      IF SATA IS ALIVE THEY WILL CHANGE THEIR ARGUMENT. THEY WILL START TALKING ABOUT SATA MEETING THE ISRAELI PM. IF HE MEETS THE PM THEY WILL START TALKING ABOUT THE BENEFIT OF SUCH A MEETING. IF THE MEETING IS BENEFICIAL THEY WILL DISPARAGE IT AND SAY SATA COULD HAVE ACHIEVED THE SAME AT HOME….

  26. Ok, so now our dear leader is hale and hearty? So when is he meeting Peres, and please avail us of the number and names of investors he will be meeting and when. Also whilst you are at it can you let us know when he will be coming back to the country he was elected to govern, even better if he would for the first time agree to give us a press conference at the airport to brief us about his sojourn to Israel at our expense? Given the controversy surrounding the poisoned red lipped midget’s tenure as acting president, I see no reason for Ukwa to dilly dally in Israel if he is not ill and finally please provide us independent video evidence of a healthy Ukwa, if none of the above can be answered adequately then I smell a corpse!

  27. good news that MCS is fine. we still need him till 2016 so that when we vote, PF will know that their promises have not been delivered on or not (5 years is good basis) and so i would not wish the demise of any one whether enemy or not. the cost of an election is too high especially when our needs are so many. by the current progress of things i wont vote for them and MCS but surely i dont want nor wish anyone sick or dead

  28. The Presidents health is important for a nation the citizens who vote for its leaders deserve to know when their leaders fly out or even when they fall ill. The people handling the head of state a doing a poor job managing his affairs and relations with the electorate. I want my president to be my president sick or not he must tell me how he is coping even if he is unwell. He is human but when you begin to play hide and seek that worries me

  29. Can George Chellah afford to be quite now with all the missiles being fired at Sata’s handlers of which he is the chief information officer? Zonda uzalema, tuleteka nomba? I doubt it. Something is not right soemwhere. One would have seen his ussual childish briefs already.

  30. No one is wishing him death but what to do if his continued living means continued suffering for the masses!!

  31. UPND again u ar bitter after hearing that the president is doing much beter,what kind a of party is this? which is only enterested in wishng other pipo dead so that they can tak over power.so upnd has no agenda for zambia they cant even tel u wat they wil du for zambia.but all they du is waitn 4 dat 1and dat one to die so dat HH can become a president.no wonder upnd has no structures because it lack seriousness

  32. This is proper madness on the part of upnd and its minions. If you think sata’s demise (which is not on the agenda for your menu) is your shortest route to nkhwazi house, mwaitaya. Give yourselves another double jubilee period beginning January next year when we shall starting thinking of being led by an animal like during KK’s time when people voted for a frog. The best you can do is to heed to Madyenkuku’s advise. You are not an island you need others who are more brainy like myself. Can’t you learn that even your learned sisters are now declining to marry you because of backward gene!

  34. this paper is indeed watching dogs and not human beings. how could it wish our president dead as if it wants to take over power and yet its a paper that watches dogs? viva our President. GOD loves you that’s why he gave you to us.

    • There are better people to pray for than a chap who is just causing suffering mu Zed. I don’t even believe in god but if I did, thats what I would tell you.

  35. Zambian Journalist go and camp in Israel and report from there telling the status of Michael Sate. You are broke then shut up. If you have no capacity to do so then you are not worth the salt.

  36. Love Jan Saudek,
