President Edgar Lungu has confirmed that he will this afternoon travel to South Africa for specialist treatment.
Speaking to journalists in Chawama after witnessing the filing in of nominations by PF candidate Lawrence Sichalwe this morning, President Lungu said he was feeling much after being discharged from Maina Soko military hospital last night.
‘I am feeling much better no wonder am here, will just have to travel to South Africa this afternoon where doctors will decide whether to do a surgery or give me medication,’President Lungu said.
The president said people should not worry because he will come back alive from South Africa after the medical procedure.
‘I will keep you updated. I hope to come back alive, who wants to die?’ a jovial sounding President Lungu questioned.
And President Lungu has called for peaceful campaigns in the forthcoming parliamentary by elections in Chawama, Senga Hill and Masaiti. President Lungu is confident that the PF will retain the Chawama seat.President Lungu called on people in Chawama to turn up in large numbers and vote for their preferred candidate in the April 14 by election.
‘Let them turn up in numbers and vote, I came here in Chawama because this place has a special place in my heart and I want the PF to retain the seat,’ he said.
Mr Lungu walked a distance of over 100 meters to the nomination centre as he waved at his supporters who stood beside the road. The president was flanked by commerce deputy minister Miles Sampa, PF Secretary General Davies Chama, Lusaka province minister Obvious Mwaliteta and state house staff.
Exercise patience Miles clean your act in 2025 you will be the preferred candidate
iwe kwalepa ni 2021
This is absurd
If it was mild and nothing to worry about , therw would have been none of these reports
They should stop fooling us, the man I am told can not now walk unaided
His forehead is twice its size and he is not eating at all as well, they blaming this on the throat but there is more to it people,how many more times do you have to be lied to to believe intelligent brains like me?
You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
Western tabloids here are reporting teh truh, zambian media have been known to talk of medical check ups’ is jogging in London’ among other cover ups.
The bottomline is, I am told it is a 50:50 situation.
It is very very serious and a case of anything can happen
I am informed
Keep him in your prayers people
which hospital is he going to in South, Hope it is not Morning side clinic coz we all know what come out of their when a Zambian politician goes for medical attention in the area
Sampa is saying Mudala leave the instruments with me .Good to see Lungu back on his feet. You cant fool God twice iwe Sa.tana
Iwe Mushota nothing serious it is just hungover he is fine, Mr President please reduce your drinking you are now in spotlight you can’t afford to sleep the whole day when you have a program the next day you are just human bulakola.
Miles” face is saying “yabah!, this guy was a political non-entity during my uncle Sata’s reign who only depended on bayama in politics and was only given those appointments because he was the least threat to my uncle’s presidency”.
GET WELL SON SIR.
No more PF .. Any party’s in zambia ? To many lies and thiefs in PF . 17 months of hinding now begins . Zambians pay more tax for your Medical bills of your president , since you voted for him .
Even Sata managed to open parliament whilst visibly sick. The PF addicts even celebrated that his critics have been put to shame.
Alas! In less that two months he died.
That quick public appearance does not guarantee good healthy on the part of the president, give him time to rest.
WHICH SOUTH AFRICA IWE?
HE HAS BEEN FLOWN TO SOUTH AFRICA FOR A CONNECT FLIGHT OUISIDE AFRICA.
PROBABLLY FOLLOWING THE ROUTES SATA USED TO TAKE. ECL. IS A ME TOO.
Zambians and their affinity to sick presidents. It bespeaks a mindset that is in a state of utter disrepair.
Get well soon Mr. President! God bless you too
Well well its drama in Zambia(Zamunda) republic south of the equator.Lets wait and see as the drama un folds.
Edgar should resign with honor, and I will be first to support that he get paid as a president for life.
Stop these sermons my friend. This reminds us of how Sata passed on. You were seeing were always saying bakateka get well soon everyday. Do not worry with EL. He has seven lives like a cat. Now he is gone now he has resurrected. He has already died for three times. He still has four more lives.That is why he had no problem He will still be around in 2016
Why would you bring God’s name in this. These people don’t fear God. Wait Zambia is a Christian Nation.
It’s great he’s recovered. I wish him a successful medical trip to SA. God is with you Chagwa
Bembas are guilty of voting for sick individuals as Presidents. Levy was sick and earned himself the Cabbage title. During campaigns the guy used to spit in public. Bembas went ahead to vote for him. Later he died. Sata too was sick before becoming President having suffered a heart attack earlier. Regardless of this Bembas went ahead to make him President. Later he died. And now there is this Chagwa Agwa. We were warned before elections that the man is sick but Bembas still went ahead to give him the Presidency. And now the same Bembas are saying lets pray for the President. Pray to who? You want to blame the devil for your mistakes and involve God to correct them? Sorry No! God will not have a hand in this. Just chew your pride and chase this patient from State House.
Just shut your stinking mouth and concentrate on what you know best, polygamy. The President is very well to your shame and since his situation is public knowledge there is nothing you can tell us.
Anyone, yourself, your children, relatives and including you own mother or father do fall sick and our culture does not take pride in that.
If yours is to wish others ill so that you can ascend to power, NEVER will you ever get it. Sickness is from the devil and anyone who cherishes it is a devil himself.
When Mazoka, passed on, we were all saddened and did not rejoice in it, maybe HH did hence the curse of losing elections year in year out.
There are bloggers on this site that I consider ‘ignorant’ because of their tribalist remarks but so far, you top the list. Where is the ‘bembas this, bembas that’ going to take you? What will you gain? You mean for HH to win, he needs no votes from the bembas either in Lusaka or Copperbelt, right? You are a lost cause, a good reason to mourn because even a blind person sees better than you, with their heart.
Personally, I have respect for HH and I think he would make a good president, how about that? I also think his time will come and when it does, he will do wonders.
I feel for you, get out there and become enlightened, we are one. You are truly lost.
Somewhere out there is a tree producing oxygen for you to breathe, you need to apologise to it.
I was about to educate this ka2v1 kapa last called TT in Mambwe but Secret Code and Beautiful Moma have done it brilliantly! Thanks guys.
TT lufyono lwako!
In 2001, you Bembas knew fully well that Levy (MHSRP) was sick and when the choice was between a sick and healthy person, you went ahead to give Levy power. Take Luapula Province for example Levy 71,500 votes Ben Mwila 20,998 votes Tilyenji 10,496 votes and Mazoka 5,674. Now that Mazoka is dead you want to claim that you loved him! How did you love him? Don’t you have shame? In 2011, you Bembas knew fully well that Sata (MHSRP) was sick and yet you gave him the Presidency. Take for example Luapula Sata 151,822 votes RB 47,299 votes HH 1,758 votes!!! What use do you make of sick Presidents? You are the worst tribalists in the world!! Shame on you.
@TT u don’t give God instructions u cant say He will not have a hand in this who are you? You really r exposing ubupuba bobe!!!
@TT,4 so you are telling us that it is Bembas who decide who can be President of Zambia?
You are biased, produce the numbers for Levy and Sata in southern province. Why did you only pick C/B? You have just decampaigned HH to about 4 people who responded to your comment, 4 in one day. Good luck in 2016.
You are still in the broken hill man era when the bantu botatwe were still migrating. I ve got news for you, they ve settled down now and its not going to change.
Continue with your Bemba agenda, I assure you that it will work really, really well for you.
When these trips start, we’v learnt from experience tht thy do not end well….hope he won’t come back as CARGO
Imwe, the chap was just drunk. he didn’t drink enough water before officiating at women’s day
And because of that he needs specialist treatment which may include surgery?
IMAGINE HOW SATA CALLED MAZOKA – THAT THE PANTS ARE FAILLING AND GETTING LOOSE.. HE CALLED MWANAWASA – CABBAGE …….THE PF LEADERSHIP WAS QUITE AND TODAY THEY CAN’T BE ASHEMED TO LOOK AT THOSE CALLING EDGAR WAWA LUNGU AS A SLOW PANCTURE.YOU GUY(LUNGU) MILES HAS PLAYED ON YOU AVOID HIM AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
Ba ebola, don’t comment on issues you don’t know much. Mr Sata neva laughed at Mazoka but it was Katele Kalumba who said those words u hav attributed to have been said by Mr Sata and if u want, ask the wife to Mazoka. Mr sata,Mr mazoka and Mama Nawakwi were planning to form one party/merge and challenge MMD, sadly he died and then we witnessed the issue of Only A Tonga shud replace Mazoka. Bo Sakwiba Sikota or Patrick Chisanga were the rightful pipo to have taken over from Mr Mazoka but again u know in UPND its all the way TONGA and these pipo are not TONGAS..
Thanks for truth @ Mwansa:
‘Mr Sata neva laughed at Mazoka but it was Katele Kalumba who said those words u hav attributed to have been said by Mr Sata’
Just as HH neva uttered the words ‘Only A Tonga shud replace Mazoka’ as attributed to him by many bloggers, it was Syacheye Madyenkuku and Ngande Mwanajiti.
Wish everyone was level headed
Wish you quick recovery Mr. President. Some comments are not very appealing!
Pride comes before a fall! Lungu, has been too excited to the point of thinking he owns everything in Zambia. God, showed him that he is just a mere mortal. God picked the right time to show him that he is just a simple man.
AND U ARE NOW BEING TOO EXCITED… WATCH OUT!!
So all you wanted was to sue it yah? Okay other than finding the right time to use that Pride comes before a fall cliche’, your blog is all boosheet James!
seing lungu walk and smile pains hh and upnd a lot.
You *****. Who told you? Offcourse he wants the presidency but he can’t wish one sick!
Us children of God are very glad seeing our President with a big smile on his face. However, the children of sataan are in deep sorrow because what the want is death not life.
By the grace of God, i believe many saatanist will be converted and they will started wishing the God of love.
Our good President travel well to South Africa and may our Great God give you the best health to the glory of His name.
Had you collapsed within the confines of statehouse,we would not be reading this.nevertheless ,Get well soon your excellency and avoid too much booze to prolong your life.
The picture of the President with Hon. Miles Sampa is nice.
Thank God for giving us the zambianwatchdog. Everyone just confirms what they have already said.
Zambia Watchdog is cow dung matter. When there is no PF news, its as good as closed site.
Journalism of hiding behind the keyboard is for cowards and for how long will ZWD continue with their nonsense?
Anyway am glad not anyone that I hold high esteem is a journalist because they its NOT a profession a person with great brains can ever dream of pursuing it. Online journalism is for bootlickers and beggars.
GOD DID NOT MAKE ZAMBIANWATCHDOG.. STOP BLASPHEMING!!
Say the Devil not our Merciful God. We thank God because the candidate promoted by ZWD will never rule Zambia.
May the almighty be with the president.
he is definately coming back very fit and very much alive, God still has a huge task for him in 2016, we must show the tribal party and the people wishing him death that God is greater than anyone, we will Kolopa again next year,we will still vote for Lungu whether sick or not. SO haters the earlier you get this the better!!!!!!!!!!!! its Lungu and PF till christ returns.
Mmembe what a fool ! Celebrating the president”s illness any way we know you are not human and you will not die even after too much homosexuality . But get it in your head God almighty is with our head of state and come 2016 tizamikolopa again.
The Tribalists are those who force sick people to die in state house to feel there belies at expense of ailing Zambian Economy.Bembas call Tongas tribalists while Tongas call Bembas tribalists.The true tribalists are those who don’t speak other people’s languages at Nsila Umfwa efyo ulelanda,as if God created you alone.Jehova is a great equalizer.
Mugabe fell down recently. EL is Mugabe’s friend, right? Is there some connection here? What type of juju did he give our president?
Mugabe is dying this year they say. who else?
Why too many police men? Is the president not safe without policemen around him?
what about MAZOKA,what happened to him pipo.
Akashishi ekamulile bane, its public knowledge and we all know it but we did not rejoice because he was not a factor!
Surgery for Malaria? I smell a rat! Unless you he has some organ damage from bring diabetic and hypertension.
This was just a publicity walk about. He should have been taking a bed rest as ordered by the doctors. Who is he trying to please? He should just be real to himself. He won’t take politics to his grave.
ITS CALLED PRIDE! MAYBE HE NEEDS TO SEE THE PHOTO
Zambia has lost a sense of shame and now has become a district of the RSA. You will be crazy to expect South Africans to have any respect for disorganised and clueless Zambians.
Now like it happened with the late Sata all attention will be on the sickly Lungu at the expense of development and the only way to avoid it is to retire him, there is nothing special about him. The history of the causes of his collapsing seems to suggest that his collapsing will not be corrected, if anything it will get worse and more frequent given his carelessness with alcohol and the pressure of being president. Just get rid of him, there are millions of sober and healthier Zambians out there who can handle the presidency more ably. Let him concentrate full time on his health problems. Enough is enough.
This guy may have kidney issues and probably needs a transplant or something else is wrong with his heart or who knows and though I sympathize with any sick person, all I can say is this. Why would he need surgery for Malaria? Praying never works. I hope docs can help him get to root of problem. Except that our docs gave him a clean bill of health recently, what a shame!
The president should stop drinking beer if at all he drinks. the main cause of Hypoglycemia is excessive intake of alcohol because the liver fails to break down the stored glycogen to glucose resulting into a severe hangover. he will better manage his condition if he stops alcohol. Doctors should be sincere with our beloved president. narrowing of the food pipe has never been known to cause hypoglycemia leading to collapse.
he Problem is NOT Mmembe but Presidents who have allowed Mmembe to continue writing as he pleases. Mmembe has literally insulted all Presidents except his uncles Arther and Sikota Wina. Arthur Wina was a serial drunkered and died of alcoholism. He cannot write about this instead he refers us to Milton Obote. This is not press freedom but hatred and destruction of innocent Zambians perceived to have stood and seen as standing in his way to usurp power. Mmembe’s sole aim is to get power by all means. RB was warned. He went to sleep in the name of nursing democracy. He knows better what he is going through. EL cannot pretend that he was not warned but equally has gone to sleep while Mmembe is getting stronger. For me its presidents who are STUPID. This paper needs to be shut. Finish.
May someone who is medically inclined educate me about this condition of narrowing of the food pipe? How does this condition make someone collapse? Also the issue of low sugar level is being mentioned, does this mean that HE does not eat well and enough food? We also hear of this drinking problem that he has. I once took alcohol in excess while on campus and it was not easy for me to eat and even swallow food. I had mixed akiki wine with some local brandy I can’t remember now. I felt very weak the following day but some sugar solution (Zigolo did some trick) Even soup of cows hooves (vimbombo) can assist in such instances.
Like the way have put it. What was your major? Nutrition and local brews?
@ Chester….khikikikiki….vimboombo are very good, you can even do press-ups (pushups) after one plate of vimbombo…the problem is that there is no vimboombo at state-house, exceept in Chawama, thats why ECL rushed there…!1!
Vimbombo……….. hehehehehe!! this has made my day
Iyoo tamutesha, vibombo sure is powerful in a statement.
Howlong is he expected to be gone? Is the surgery necessary at this point? If yes what are the risks involved with such a procedure? What is the usual recover period? Is there in danger to the vocal codes? Will he recover in SA so the doctors there can monitor his condition? Was this a sudden or gradually developing condition? Has the president had surgery before?Could he be allergic to anesthesia? Is it an outpatient procedure? The nation has a whole host of questions. Meanwhile the kwacha was down 1.57% as at 10:00 am GMT on Bloomberg.
Travel well Mr President and Gods Blessings be with you.
and come back to govern this country.
we have been too much on auto pilot
nursing Presidents with our deteriorating economy.
[email protected] Code wayamba vinango futi. I have always told you that stop what you are doing towards HH else you wil continue to mourn year in year out. HH is on Vocation, he cares less to loose. Leave the gentleman alone and enjoy your verbatisms. Why do you continue tonting him in the mean time you are busy being eliminated one by one. HH is a super hero and will continue to be so as long as you continue to insult him in this manner. Your non-repentant will see all of you to HELL. Do not temper with such people like HH, he is a respected man world over, who are you to insult him? I tell you that tomorrow you are a gonna, else stop that right away.
HH is just a under 5 who has lost 4 times and in 2016 next year he is going to lose.
Which vacation iwe, with who okay…sali pa Golden chakuti nachi Maureen? Tamvela kudala nkani!
HH must have placed his health higher on his personal priorities and he has the resources to take care of himself.
YOU WILL FILL PAGES & PAGES WITH FOOLISH COMENTS ,YOU WILL ALSO TALK ABOUT ILL ABOUT THE POST,HH AND MANY OTHERS BUT GOD KNOWS THE TRUTH.READERS DONT HATE OTHERS AS THIS WEBSITE HATES HH WHILE OTHERS SAY ZWD HATES LUNGU.TO BE HONEST IT READERS WHO POST MESSAGES NOT THE OWNERS OF THE WEBSITE.GOD GOD WASH OUR SINS FOR ALL WE HAVE DONE AS A COUNTRY especially our K.K
Out of all the healthy candidates, Zambians opt for this one! Yaba, te sana. This could have been avoided at all cost through the ballot.
Matenda ni chimodzi na mimba, it cannot be hidden, one day it will definitely show.
Too difficult this time to give the President a working holiday within a space of less than three months to South Africa en-route Zimbabwe for medical treatment.
Ifya kulya ubushiku ba fimwena kumalushi.
Defrauded again. Cry the beloved country!
TT, truth pains PF cadres will now attack as usual for telling the them truth. These Bembas do not look beyond their noses as long as they get as much money as they can. They will even sink so low to support one on death bed so long money is involved. They claim sickness can be on any one, without accepting those already sick who they violently support even shedding blood over it. They shame well cultured Bembas because of greed. They could not even accept their paramount chief Chitimukulu on account of greed for money. I end up by saying Edgar Chagwa Lungu is sick and serious and presidency is at risk. As usual these Bembas will attack those of us saying the truth. Never the less nothing will change, sickly president risks various national issues, this has happened before.
Aquilla, whether you hate Bembas or not, they will continue ruling you, hence your bitterness. Your preferred candidate will NEVER rule Zambia and you know it. You are a shameless human yourself. Your candidate and your tribe will only rule if cows vote.
@ my conscience.
HH means nothing to us, if he is respected world over thats your own baby to nurse, we do not care about him or what he has. Above all its not in you power to take life from some one, we can insult him over and over and we will not die, so dont threaten us.
have said time and again that if you want to see HH in state house, hh sympathsizers stop worshipping this free mason, God is not happy with the way you exhalt him, hh is no God. there are people who are rich in this world HH has nothing, its only here in Zambia were you can hereo worship a person for bulding a ka simple mansion
HH is busing “bonking widows at Golden bridge hotel for over 10 hours” while EL is champaining.
In the beerhalls
ECL Nafuti Nafuti. The Man means well for Zambia. If he will be sick and on Life Support in 2016 , i will still vote for ECL. The Man has impressed me with his Navigation of the Current Extremely Difficult Political Terrain in Zambia , Humility, and Intelligent Decisions. The so called “Self made Billionaire” who we know jump started his Money Making Masonry Crusade using Sticky Long Fingers in the Privatisation Vault will never ever see my vote.
MR PRESIDENT, WHO IS FOOLING WHO HERE? YOU ARE JUST CHEATING YOURSELF. PLEASE ADHERE TO DOCTORS ADVICE. YOU ONLY HAVE ONE LIFE…
We need a clause in the new Constitution which says all public officials are to be treated in public hospitals within Zambia when they fall ill. If they want to go abroad for specialist treatment, let them do so at their own private expenses.
This will help improve our hospitals.
Surely it is private citizens should be given this status not politicians… we really have our priorities up-side-down.
Its amazing how the opposition want to make this a field day kaili them the are machines the cant get sick, and for ECL to be sick its not allowed yaba – he is human just like everyone else. God is to faithfull!
There goes tax-payers money. Zambians wake up twapapata…
HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF….NDELOLESHAFYE
Damn!! No one comes back alive from Milpark. Another state funeral in offing. This man will return as cargo. His appearance in Chawama is bidding farewell. Sata appeared at Parliament and said he was still alive. He attacked all those who thought he had died saying he had died many times. Three weeks later, he was no more. Chagwa is going the same way.
– SUPU YA MBUZI 2 TIMES PER DAY
– PORK TROTTERS ONCE PER DAY
– VIMBOMBO VA NGOMBE ONCE PER DAY
-TU BEANS ONCE BEFORE SLEEPING
@43 Mfumu Ya Ndodo,
What a prescription? It’s worth trying!
Get well soon your Excellency. Travel well and keep your trust and faith in Christ who is able above all things to turn things around. May He Cast His healing power over you and defeat the darkness.
This moment will pass and you will be double a soldier with purpose on your return. Your enemies and their support groups will flee and vanish into the light of truth.
Travel well. If you believe in Christ power over you body you are healed arise and walk. In Christ’s name we will it. Amen.
God Bless His Excellency
God Bless Zambia and all it’s people
Get well soon my president and middle fingers to all ya sayin nonse abt my president
Lets us all remember the wise saying by wise people from the east that “Masiku ni panyo pa tambala.”
Lets us all remember the wise saying by wise people from the east that “Masiku ni pa-nyo pa tambala.”
Is this the legacy PF wants to perpetuate – one sick president after another? Why wasn’t a democratic process followed at their convention in Kabwe? Was Lungu truly their best of the best?
This is extremely, extremely, extremely asphyxiating. Is this gentleman running again in 2016?
KOLOPA KOLOPA. AWE KWENA TWALIKOLOPA PA 20-2015 UKU KOLOPA KUMO NAMALENDA YONSE AYELETONAISHA BALYA TWIKWITE ABALE MYANGAWILA BU PRESIDENCY. NAFUTI NAFUTI MU 2016 NI KOLOPA
