Opposition All People’s Congress (APC) President Nason Msoni has charged that the released still-pictures of President Michael Sata chairing a Cabinet meeting on Monday do not put to rest the speculations over his state of health.
Mr. Msoni has told Qfm news that President Sata should have instead addressed the nation as opposed to releasing still pictures of him.
Mr. Msoni says this is especially that the nation has also been stressed and desperate for information about President Sata’s wellbeing in the face of widespread speculations that he is unwell.
He says this is why he thinks that the released pictures of the President addressing Cabinet are far from the truth.
Mr. Msoni has suggested that government should at this end tell the nation what the President’s health status is as people still have doubts even with release of the pictures.
But Chief Government Spokesperson Joseph Katema has maintained that the released pictures of the President addressing Cabinet yesterday are the official position of government.
Dr. Katema, who is also Information and Broadcasting Minister, has told Qfm News that he was personally in attendance of the Cabinet meeting at State House which President Sata chaired.
He says anyone still not convinced about the President’s well being can continue politicking as there is no big issue as far as he is concerned.
