Dr Canisius Banda talking to journalists

The Ruling Patriotic Front (PF) has said that it is launching a formal complaint to the Medical Council of Zambia over the remarks made by UPND Vice President Dr. Canisius Banda so that he is made a accountable for the statement he issued at a press conference yesterday.

In a media statement in which the party addressed a number of issues, PF said that Doctors are bound to keep the confidentiality and details of any patient and that they will appeal to the Medical Council of Zambia to debar Dr. Banda for breach of these highly sacred medical ethics.

PF described the purported document UPND claims to have as not only a total fabrication concocted by people that known to celebrate illness and death, but also designed to cause scare and panic among Zambians.

Below is the full statement

MEDIA STATEMENT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

1ST JANUARY 2015

SUBJECT: UPND DEAD SCARED, MASEBO IS SUSPENDED, DESPERATE AND KNEW HER FATE

It is clear that it has dawned on the United Party for National Development (UPND) and its leader Hakainde Hichilema that PF President Edgar Chagwa Lungu will win the forthcoming Presidential Elections.

The case in point is the party’s press conference recently addressed by its Vice-President Dr. Canisius Banda, which made incredible and preposterous false allegations regarding the forth-coming elections. Some of false allegations stated that:

  1. That Defence Force Chiefs are advising soldiers to vote for Hon. Edgar Lungu
  2. That foreign nationals from Congo and Rwanda have been unleashed on Southern Province to cause violence
  3. That the UPND has a medical report of Hon. Edgar Lungu that purport that he has kidney problems.
  4. That an electoral rigging scheme is underway

We wish to caution that the level of desperation demonstrated in their statement is dangerous, inflammatory, irresponsible, and defamatory and puts national security at stake.

It is regrettable that the UPND is now involving our Service Chiefs in partisan politics.

We demand that Mr. Hichilema apologizes to the Defence Forces for this irresponsible and careless statement.

We also demand that Mr. Hichilema should apologise to the Republic of Congo and to the Republic of Rwanda for his false insinuations of its nationals that might sour the harmonious relations that Zambia enjoys with these sister Republics.

On the alleged medical report circulating on social media for sometime now, it is now a proven and established fact that the said medical report is a total fabrication concocted by people that known to celebrate illness and death.

The criminal fabrication of this medical report was designed to cause scare and panic among Zambians.

However since Dr. Canisius Banda is a medical doctor by profession but has chosen to play dirty politics by issuing careless remarks, our lawyers are launching a formal complaint to the Medical Council of Zambia to hold him accountable for this statement. Doctors are bound to keep the confidentiality and details of any patient. We will appeal to the Medical Council of Zambia to debar Dr. Banda for breach of these highly sacred medical ethics.

Because the said Report is fake, and because Dr. Banda is a medical doctor, some gullible people might believe him his utterances. It is for this reason that the medical fraternity must punish Dr. Banda for his criminal conduct.

Regarding Sylvia Masebo’s utterances and endorsements, we wish to state that Masebo remains a suspended official from the Patriotic Front for her earlier acts of gross indiscipline.

Her actions are designed to pre-empt the disciplinary measures she is facing. It is for this reason that Zambians should not pay attention to such an official attempting to clean her misconduct by such an action. The Central Committee will seat, deal and resolve with her matter of indiscipline.

We therefore appeal to our supporters to remain steadfast and unshaken by these desperate antics by the UPND and its affiliates. They will become more and more desperate as we count down to January 20th 2015.

We wish to state that we have over 100 Members of Parliament from the PF, MMD and UPND campaigning in their constituencies for Hon. Edgar Lungu. We also have our party officials across the country who are also campaigning for Hon. Lungu.

Hon. Edgar Lungu is enjoying massive support across the country and public rallies he has held in Kitwe, Lusaka, Kasama, Mongu, Mpulungu, Mbala and Mungwi are a testimony to his popularity and show a very popular leader pulling crowds only comparable to President Michael Sata’s public rallies in 2011.

We should remember that Patriotic Front by its stronghold in Lusaka, Copperbelt, Luapula, Northern and Muchinga provinces, and by the support its enjoying countrywide because of its infrastructural development in roads, bridges, Hospitals, clinics, schools, colleges and Universities, will definitely sweep the election with a landslide.

    • What ever the case. If true that Lungu is sick, why can’t he tell the truth. we just came from such rumors and lies that the president went for medical checkups. what did we end up with??? Funeral.

      President’s office is a public office therefore candidates should be have integrity to declare their well being.

      Why people have ended up doing such is because of the way PF lie and handle themselves. They are full of selfishness.

      Lungu had said that he was not interested to run because he was medically unfit?? what did he mean then??

      Why are we Zambians so sallow minded and stupid?? we can not just afford another sick president. For this it is prudent to know all their health records including HH.

      Publish for all than encouraging rumors. we need a FIT president not patients…

    • I do not support what Dr Banda has said on the Medical report. It is a mistake that should not be made by such a senior Doctor.

      The question is however; Is it true that Edger is sick?
      If you take him to court or the Medical council, he may just prove that Edger is sick but he will be debarred and you would have both lost. But who will lose more? because Banda can be reinstated if his President were to win just like Edger got his Law license back.

      PF, If the report is fake please ignore it together with Banda’s statement or find other means of dealing with it because you may just be falling into a trap.

      Anyway am not PF, so it is up to you to decide what is best for your candidate.

      At least Zambia is housing you. Your country India looks after the rich only, we have given you a decent life in Zambia and you should appreciate it. We know where you live,we will come and deport you. You make another racist comment, leave the political comments to Zambians. You are a visitor and should respect our country. We can shout at each other as Zambians,at the end of the day,we are a peaceful country,that’s why you are in our country. Put another racist comment here,and blame yourself for the repercussions.

    • The so called statement from Canitious Banda is fake and he was taken out of contest. HH and UPND do not wish anyone ill or dead. These lies by LT will continue and do not bother us anymore. Secondly why is it that any PF member who endorses HH is susdenly becomes suspended? I thought all “PF suspensions” were were lifted after the fake “reconciliation”?

      1. On November 3rd, Lungu himself was quoted to have said he did not want to stand as President because he was unwell, he had kidney problem.

      2. Nothing is private with any person who decides to aspire to be president. If Lungu wants privacy let him remain a private citizen.

      3. Zambian is embarrassing Africa. The country is having a bye-election because we lost a President, who kept denying that he was sick. In a normal society, you expect people to be strict with the health of aspiring candidates, but it seems the attitude of Zambians is—- it`s no-big-deal . Honestly, Zambia is not a country of Zombies.

    • First

      Breach of confidentiality will hold if one Edgar Chagwa Lungu has been a patient of Dr. Banda where Dr. Banda has attended to one Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

      If that has not happened, there is no case.

      Second

      Medical practitioners are not members of the Bar. The Bar Association is for legal practitioners.

      In conclusion, this claim is going nowhere. It is ill-conceived and lacks substance.

    • My friends and I just listened to Mr. Hichilema’s New Year message. He sounds so calm and collected. There’s something in his voice that inspires confidence – you feel like everything will be alright. Maybe because he speaks in slow measured tones. But even the timbre of his voice.

      And this is not to put anyone else down. It’s just an observation.

    • Banda should know better as a doctor! He should be above cadre politics!

      He probably will be found wanting by he MCZ, & could be deregistered. If he were, it would be very difficult for him to register again, as MCZ is no gov or political institution.

      Word of advice to UPND: Gross political mistake from withdrawing HH from the EAZ Political debate. He shud have been there in person to show his sincerity & respect for the electorate – what has transpired, is that his chola-boys are now making excuses for him making him look no different from Lungu. Infact if he had been there, despite ZNBC pulling out, that would have been a very big positive for him to show that PF was manipulating public media – HH’s problem is recycling finished politicians, such as those flocking from…

  2. It’s wrong to publish someone’s medical report. But, that is one of the issues Zambia faces today. There’s no data protection whatsoever, it is shocking to see people walking about with their medical reports and carrying those reports to their homes. Any one can get hold of an individual’s medical record,even I as a mere soul. Bottom line- put proper systems in place then all this will be avoided. I’m not aware of any data protection laws regarding patient information or the sharing of that information,do they even exist?
    On another note, we need healthy leaders who can adequately represent us at international levels,not someone who when the country sends you to the United Nations,instead of delivering a speech, you are busy collapsing and calling paramedics from New York.

    • Let all candidates go through medical examinations to separate the sick from the fit. I think this is what should be happening. The office of the president is so demanding that we can not afford to put in a sick person. Even Sata used to challenge Mwanawasa to for medical examination and have the results published. Ba P.F what has changed now especially that Lungu is following Sata’s steps.

  7. What’s good for the goose must be good for the gander as well. You chaps don’t safe guard medical notes for the Zambian population,why should E.Lungu’s be safe guarded? Besides,only a couple of month’s ago,he Lungu himself announced that he’s unwell, has he made a miraculous recovery? If I were Dr Banda, I would just pull-out that media statement Lungu issued stating his health needs. Medical council who do they protect or represent? The number of bogus doctors in Zambia is amazing. Another issue which needs to be sorted by well meaning President. On the health front both PF,MMD have failed. At least UNIP did better.

    • Harry “Liar” Kalaba is a funny man. If you were to read is statement, it gives you two sides;

      1. That the medical report which is in circulation is a fake.
      2. That Dr. Banda breached the Doctors code of ethics by revealing a patient’s medical history (record).

      From the two statements, the following can be adduced:

      a) If the medical report is fake, then why report Dr. Banda to MCZ as the evidence to be tendered is fake. On this score there is no breach of ethics as the report to be tendered is fake.

      On this score the best option is for Kalaba & Co to institute court proceedings for defamation against EL.

      b) Where the medical report will be found to be authentic, then surely, they can report to MCZ. However, Dr, Banda’s defence may be that the condition of EL is in…

An HIV person is human too. All HIV persons are welcome to contest any position in PF and will not be discriminated against so long they can deliver. Vote for PF for continuity of good policies for people living with HIV……in PF we want every person living with HIV to access ARV’s so that they can make a meaningful contribution to the development we’re witnessing under PF.

  13. Where as HH has continued to engage in positive campaigns and has not attacked any individual nor used scare messages, Canicious Banda has on the other hand used the Sata method of campaigns of scare and mudslinging. This should be discouraged by all means. On the other hand Kalaba is a proven liar having denied Satas illness and now he is denying on behalf of Edgar who already said it publicly on 3rd November 2014 that he had some medical conditions.

    • 15.0 I agree with you to some extent, but Dr. Banda could be warning of a “thief who is actually there”.

      My worry is the Kalabas who don’t see the side effects of their actions. Lets not forget the Chiluba v. Fred Mmembe, Lucy Sichone (MHSRIP) and Bright Mwape (MHSRIP). If it is proven that the report is true, a hearing will be held and I can assure you Dr. Banda will not be found culpable.

      EL is not his client, therefore as a concerned Zambian, first (Doctor is secondary) he has a duty to “cry thief, thief” to the public, PERIOD!!

  14. Continued from 9.1
    Firstly EL was reported to have collapsed at State House sometime early last year whilst attending a swearing in ceremony and to which he mentioned that he had a “health condition.” The records are in public domain. He further reiterated after taking over from Kabimba that he was not interested to being president as he was not well and that he was a disciple of MCS (MHSRIP).

    Kalaba should note that disclosure comes in where there is Doctor-Client relationship (EL must prove that he is a client of Dr. Banda). Hope Kalaba is one those EL intends to dispose off if he wins. Kalaba is an empty tin, a lot of noise less thinking.

  15. UPND has got a very good chance in these elections and my advice to them is to stop campaigning on negativity like this and campaign on positive strides and hope that you would want to bring to Zambia. Capitalising on someone’s poor health whether true or not is what Zambians don’t see as progressive rather retrogressive. Imagine how many votes HH would get if he only said ‘ I understand that EL is not well but wish him quick recovery’ ? Now imagine how many votes they will lose for celebrating the alleged misfortunes and poor health of an opponent. Illness and dying is expectant of any person and not choosing a presidential candidate because he may die is utter stupedity.

Health Status 2.Tribe 3. Riches , etc.!!for me and surely most Zambians HH doesnt provide the confidence of a leader with a unfying character and as such HH will NEVER rule Zambia.

    • Sobriety, with due respect I disagree with you and many others. For me campaigns should have Health as the first thing on each of the political party’s campaign agenda. Why do I say so?

      1. The health of a president determines the direction the country moves. In developed nations the moment an incumbent is sickly the stock markets tumble. You would tell me that here we are not advanced, and that the more reason we need a healthy president as most of the powers are reposed in him and if he is infirm the country comes to a stand still (lessons already learnt during the illness of MCS, MHSRIP).

      2. The position of president requires a healthy mind to make informed decisions. Its a healthy mind, in my case, that will a correct decision rather than one which is not.

HH is now kneeling before people, HH is trying to smile, HH is trying to dance with people as Sata did.

  23. Well done Dr. Banda for raising concerns, backed with proof, the questionable health of Mr. Edger Lungu, as well as his copy-and-paste promises. As a person in a position of responsibility, you have every right under the sun to raise genuine concerns in the interest of your country, especially when Mr. Edger Lungu clearly promised, right from the onset, to build on Sata’s legacy, which legacy every normal functioning adult already knows, i.e. deceit.
    Dr. Banda, had you failed to raise these genuine concerns, you would have surely been an accomplice and accessory to deceiving the citizens of your Country along with Mr. Lungu. You have done the right thing. Remember, for those whom much has been given in terms of education or position of responsibility, much is expected.

  24. My major concern is that EL mentioned he had sneaked out of the Country to seek funding from well-wisher Presidents. He has not disclosed who these Presidents are and what interests they have in Zambia. Also are these Presidents offering him funds from their own personal savings or Government coffers? Prior to that he had also disputed UPND’s allegation that he had flown out of the Country. It appears the trend to sneak out of the Country will become worse when he is handed instruments of power these are early signs.

  28. Sorry to say that , people die from different factors you can die of heart disease, road accident sickness etc , it is wrong to think that the way you think , what you have in mind is what will kill your opponent . come out of it mr Banda, Lungu is not more closer to death than you or HH

  29. Admit it guys, our minerals are in the hands of foreigners
    Our graduates languish in the townships while less experienced expats do the same job, at 10 times the salary
    Mines like First Quantum, KCM and Lumwana exist as a state within a state
    Zambians are excluded from supply and service contracts by these mines
    As a token gesture, the top HR person is a Zambian, he/she is used as the front person when government officials visit the mines
    The metals are sold at a knocked down price to a third party abroad

  30. Hahaha Dr Carnicious Banda to be reported to Medical Council of Zambia ( which is actually defunct, now called Health Professions Council of Zambia, Mr Minister you should know better!) for the rumours already in the public domain circulating on social media!! What stupid Lawyer would do that! Doctors are bound by confidentiality of their patients, not every patient! That is to say EL would have consulted Dr Banda, that is when Dr Banda becomes bound to keep EL health record confidential!!

    • Doctors are bound by ethics, info coming to them by way of being direct patients or as secondary pts by correspondence or by indeed other methods – they are still bound by confidentiality – Dr’s are not simple kaponya’s who can simply claim they heard it from the grapevine – they have serious responsibility handed down to them upon taking the oath & being granted their doctorates – their CONDUCT should be above board.

  31. HH is paying and using extremists (ZWD – Lloyd Himambo) to participate in a debate about Lungu and PF, and reaps what he sowed — primitive Lungu-hatred and clear-cut factual errors. No amount of “corrections” can redress the error, and this serves only to leave HH’s fingerprints directly on the falsehood.

  33. Dr C. Banda is informing Zambia that there is information suggesting E Lungu’s health is not up to one holding the office of president. It is up to E. Lungu and PF to come with a clean bill of health for Lungu. Zambia,s constitution does not allow a sick person to become president and preside over national affairs. That is the more reason a medical committee can be convened to decide the health of a serving president. Zambia has been cheated before and ended up with a sickly president whose rule was by remote.
    We do not need to go through it again. Why is talking about the sickness of individuals seeking public office still a taboo in our political environment? come off it, lets be progressive in our meritocracy to purify our democracy.

    • You are wrong about the constitution!! It doesn’t bar anyone with ill health from taking up the presidency – it is particularly silent on this aspect. What it allows for, is, if there is enough serious medical concern about an incumbent, Cabinet is allowed to convene a medical board!

  34. Information Governance is above politics and if Dr Banda had privy info regarding the service user, mayb to his clinic (EL) or even info of EL having access to other health facilities, he can be jailed under the confidentiality act 1974 if at all this applies to individuals in Zambia.

    • Confidentiality is practiced in an institution more especially in a health setting such as a hospital. The are multidisciplinary group system working towards the well being of a client. Almost every one in the institution may have a role to play,e.g laboratory may do some tests on the client, domestic workers clean the room for the client in short am trying to educate the other cadre who has been saying Banda can not be liable for he was not the direct doctor. The fact remains that he is part of the multidisciplinary group. Imagine if Banda was found in a consulting room, the way he has behaved and appear(very dirty) do you think this client can even stay? No aba pa campaign will talk about my problem. Mostly I still salute nurses,they see and hear a lot more than others you will not hear.

  39. So any PF official who endorses HH is said to be a suspended member? How about the 16 executive members of the PF in Western Province who have resolved to support HH. Are they all endorsing HH because they are suspended?

  40. Thank you Hon Kalaba, good luck if anyone believes you any longer. Your name means someone who is forgetful. Have you forgotten that barely three months ago you were in the forefront telling lies that Sata was fine when you knew better as foreign minister and travel mate? From Israel to New York to UK you were with Sata and you continued telling lies until you could lie no more for the man had to return to his country as cargo.

  41. Habazonda,

    My fellow countryman I agree with you.

    I was ready to vote for UPND but for the ZWD.

    Man, ZWD become so so desperate the moment it was clear that Lungu is pf president.

    For the first time ZWD & The Post incidentally were on the same side because of Lungu

    It has now downed that this Lungu will be sixth zambian president.

    A single lie against Lungu is a 100 votes or so for him.

    If HH does not make it in this election he should blame the ZWD for loosing voters like me.

  42. And which is which, is your complaint to MCZ that the medical report is fake or is it that the poor doctor breached medical ethics by disclosing a patient’s confidential medical report?
    As for lies you are the wrong person to teach anyone not to lie. It’s like “do what I say, not what I do”, except in your case what you do and what you say are same difference, both are lies.

  43. THE PROBLEM WITH PF LIES IN LIES. THEY SHALL NEVER ADMIT THEIR WRONGS.
    1. WHEN SAKENI WAS SICK, ZW REVIEWED HE WAS SICK, BUT THEY REFUSED EVEN WHEN HE WAS IN COMER UNTIL HE DIED- BALIMULOWA.
    2. WHEN SATA WAS SICK THEY STRONGLY REFUSED AND CHEATED THAT HE WAS OKEY EVEN WHEN HE WAS DEAD IN THE STATE HOUSE, EVACUATED AT NIGHT, WHEN HAD PRESSED HAD TO GIVE HIS STATUS, THEY CHEATED THAT HE WENT FOR MEDICAL CHECK-UP UNTIL THE TRUTH WAS SLAYED OFF IN THE COFFIN AFTER INDIPENDENCE.

    MY QUESTION IS WHY ARE YOU AFRAID? WE DO NOT WANT TO HAVE HIM IF HE IS SICK THAT IS WHY WE ZAMBIANS SAY WE SHALL NOT VOTE FOR HIM. UBUFI BWACILA BA PF.

      Too much drama in your comments.

      Know only that anyone can be ill at any time, even our Leaders. We can’t
      Prevent genius Leaders coming forward to lead us in case they fall ill!

      I agree that Presidents do need to be fit mentally though. In my opinion Scott isn’t so you all are hypocrites for trying to use him to advance your HH. To State House!

  44. It’s interesting reading the comments of UPND, supporters. It’s clear they see nothing wrong with the matter of Dr Banda using another candidates health as a campaign issue. As a doctor it matters not whether he treated someone personally. The issue is that as a doctor he ought to know that is unethical. He clearly understands the psychological implications of confronting a patient to divulge his illness in such a manner.

    I cannot think of any time it would be appropriate for a doctor to harass a person with their medical details, and not cause distress to the individual.

    As for the comments that it is important to know whether Ed is ill as a campaign issue; that’s clearly not legally required and what’s more completely irrelevant under the universal Human Rights Laws.

    • Everyone has a Right to Life and to preserve, protect it from any threat to it, be it physical or psychological. Also everyone has a Right to sustain their life through work, to provide Shelterto preserve that Right.

      How odd it would be if people could not work or achieve their ambitions because society created Laws to prevent them reaching their lawful ambitions.

      Dr Banda is wrong. AND UPND cyber Trolls need locking up. Morally repugnant and unjustifiable.

      Dr Banda should taste the salt of life for his conduct.

  46. @47Patriot Abroad,

    You are all over the place and in the process you have clearly missed the plot. The point is simply this: – Experience has taught us Zambians at great cost, and for the second time, that it is counterproductive for the entire Country to knowingly let a person with proven poor health assume the position of Head of State. Period.

    Now which part of this statement do you find difficult to understand?

  47. It is like a monkey laughing at a fellow monkey for a sunken face! Kalaba is a father of liers. If Dr CB lied it is just amazing that Kalaba is hurt. Besides who is PF spokesperson? The confusion has continued? Kalaba himself has his head high because at times Zambians are docile beause just like he intends to report Dr CB equally himself should have been put to task to explain his lies on the past president’s ailment. In fact Dr CB may have some facts. Remember he is more of sober mind than Kalaba who has lied the whole national without slightest shame!!!

  49. Dr Banda’s credibility comes into question at the point where he begins to waffle about PF’s attempt to rig the elections using what he alleges as ‘fading ink’, which his own party is failing to prove even from S.A where they are witnessing the printing of ballots. So anything else he says thereafter can only make sense to his devoted (rather bigoted) disciples.

    May the most sensible team win!
