President Edgar Lungu has arrived in South Africa for medical attention after he was taken ill on Sunday.The President touched down at Lanseria International Airport near Johannesburg at about 17:00 hours and immediately drove to Millpark Hospital to visit former Chimwemwe Member of Parliament, Mr. Willie Nsanda, who is admitted to the health facility.

Mr. Lungu, who flew in with his Presidential plane, was accompanied by First Lady, Mrs. Esther Lungu; his Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations, Mr. Amos Chanda and other government officials. He was received by State House Deputy Minister, Mr. Mulenga Sata, who had arrived in advance; Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa,Mr. Muyeba Chikonde and his wife, Mrs. Musonda Chikonde and other staff from the Mission.

The President was happy to see that Mr. Nsanda was showing good signs of recovery. Both Mr. Lungu and the First Lady encouraged Mr. Nsanda to remain determined and place his faith in God.
Mr. Lungu further narrated events around his illness to Mr. Nsanda and pointed out that he had come to South Africa for medical attention.

He regretted that Mr. Nsanda missed part of the campaign period for the 20th January Presidential elections.

The President later gave an interview to SABC in the hospital grounds during which reporter, Sophie Mokoena, noted that it was extra-ordinary that a head of state has been as forth-coming and open as Mr. Lungu about his health status.

In response, Mr. Lungu observed that Zambia was coming from a situation where it lost two of its presidents and that it was therefore important to be as open as possible about such matters.
He told the reporter that he was feeling fine and was fit to work or even run but that he had to follow doctors’ advice for him to seek medical attention. He said he would be the first one to tell the nation if at all he felt that he was not in good health to handle the office of head of state.

Meanwhile, President Lungu has thanked his South African counterpart, President Jacob Zuma, for making available the medical facilities and for the warm reception that he, together with his delegation, have received. He said this goes to emphasise the cordial relations that exist between the two countries.

  1. Lets pray for willie Nsanda not to die so he can tell us where the billions embezzled at RDA are hidden.

    I wish Lungu quick recovery.

    • These guys should be checked for radioactive poisoning as well to rule out deliberate slow poisoning.

      Some one some where knows something. I suspect Mwanawasa, Sata and Mazoka were all poisoned to die slowly.

    • The statement about cordial relations with South Africa for making a hospital for heads of state and business men is like a Mwata kazembe living in Luapula thanking a Soli chief in Lusaka for making UTH in Lusaka. Basically UTH is also supposed to be in Luapula so is a hospital of Milpark standard should be in Zambia.
      Ama leaders besu

    • Some how a pattern is emerging in Zambian politics.

      Mwanawasa ‘s election was rigged, he died. Sata ‘s election was rigged he also died in office. I am afraid Lungu might also not enjoy and finish his rein.

      Just my thinking running wild folks.

      Why Zambia, why not Zimbabwe?

    • First Picture: That man in red tie looks like Emmanuel Mwamba, has he declined his job offer as ambassador to some Asian country?
      Ba RB nabeve bafuna chani ku Milpack Hospital?

    • Wishing the two men a speedy recovery. However, Willie Nsanda should bring back RDA monies which belongs to the people so that UTH & other hospitals in the country can be renovated. Taking Zambian money to South African hospitals’ shall not help the people of Zambia’s health facilities.

      The Skeleton Key
      ~206~

    • Can the Medical Association of Zambia in conjunction with the Ministry of Health provide the nation with a comprehensive list of conditions that cant be treated in Zambia so that whenever any of our people are diagnosed with such can automatically be evacuated for specialized treatment.

      Leaders get evacuated even for simple ailments that can be treated locally at great cost to tax payers, why?

      We have many qualified specialists who can do a good job, but need specialised tools to do their jobs properly.

      Our hospitals must be modernised and equiped such that with our strategic positioning, we become a referal centre for our neighbouring states. we have the money to do this and must be done NOW!!

      Our leaders are not the only ones entitled to good quality life

    • How does it feel to be a head of a house and yet you borrow your neighbour ‘s electricity to let your wife cook you meals?

      Lungu and all the Zambian presidents before him except KK are damn useless. Where is their pride in leading a nation without health care that befits a head of state?

      Zambia under all past regimes do a very good job of exporting jobs and hard earned us $.

      Of all the money borrowed by PF I guess about 30% has been spend on importing medical services abroad. All this money would have been used to improve our health facilities , expand medical school, and buy specialist medical equipment.

      PF is proud of building hospitals without medicines and doctors. What kind of thinking is this?

      PF is full of chimbwis no plan.

      Zambia deserves a better leader folks.

    • What do South Africans think about our leaders running to their country for medical treatment? Surely, this should be embarrassing to any Zambian to see our leaders running to foreign countries for medical treatment.

      Excellency, what do you think about this matter? What about the rest of the 13m Zambians, including your beloved relatives and cadres, that you leave behind queuing for 4-6 hours at Chawama “HOSPITAL” (according to RB)? I am not mocking anyone or politicking. I am dead serious. Let us be serious bane. Are you telling me that Zambia is too poor to purchase CT scanners, X-ray machines, MRI machines, Telemetries, Monitoring machines, etc for UTH, Maina Soko, Levy Mwanawasa hospital and our General hospitals? You are so quick to find money for unnecessary by-elections?? Sad.

    • look at all you PF lumpens singing pa bwato pa bwato or ifintu ni lungu ifintu ni lungu…………willie Nsanda has been at that expensive hospital for over a month now and all the bills are being indirectly being paid by you when your asses rot at kalingalinga clinic due mainly to lack of paracetamol or aspirin……………if these two were one of you as you claim then why are they not going to kalingalinga or bauleni clinics? LOOK AT NYAMASOYA, HE NOW LIVES IN A FOREIGN LAND JUST LIKE HIS SON BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED TO THE HIGH LEVELS OF POVERTY IN THIS COUNTRY……the two are in Sandton enjoying life while you eat michopo yambuzi ku city market shouting pabwato

    • LUNGU WILL REMAIN HAUNTED AS LONG AS HE LIVES AND REMAIN IN OFFICE AS PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA. THIS IS BECAUSE LUNGU IS FULLY AWARE THAT HE STOLE POWER FRO HH AND UPND, YET HE FULLY KNOWS THAT HIS HEALTH DOES NOT ALLOW HIM TO WORK AS STATE PRESIDENT. IF LUNGU WANTS TO LIVE LONGER, IF HE IS WISE, LET HIM RELINQUISH POWER AND HAND IT BACK TO THE RIGHTFUL OWNER, HH.

    • We are busy spending huge amounts of Public funds on a few corrupt individuals at the expense of the millions of mothers and children lying in dirty ,dilapidated and rat infested hospitals.When is this nonsense going to stop?
      Why not spend this amount to improve the health facilities at home for the benefit of every Zambian?

    • That ka tube passing by Nsanda’s nose carries Oxygen. Is the man that seriously ill that he requires oxygen supplementation? We heard he had prostate cancer. My thinking is that the tumor my have metastasized (spread) to the lungs. Just thinking aloud…..!!

    • Wishing Nsanda a quick recovery-may our Lord Jesus Christ save his life, we still need him in the political arena!!

    • Wllie Nsanda, it’s time for to also payback what you did to me in Kitwe 1999. You are a total BULLY, only God forgives.

    • It sucks and sucks that a poor Zambian is dying with no medical facilities while a mbeba is flying high to be treated in another foreign country.
      Guys are we normal in Zambia .
      You vote for these politicians ,yourselves are suffering to the core ,hospitals are in shambles smelling no medicine at all whilst them are using tax payers money for their luxury treatment.
      Look at the Picture guys in PF
      Cant you see how RB is smiling

      Please Lets chase these RB away mwe bantu and his fellow Lungu.
      Northerners and Luapula guys time is now RB and Lungu are up to no good.
      Let DR NGOSA REMAIN WITH LUNGU and THE TWO FACED COW WINA

    • BATATA BA CHIKWANDA yo President RB has placed Mvunga to take over from you.
      KALABA and MWILA YOUR TIME WILL SOON BE UP .
      LUNGU has no interest in you any more .
      Lungu trusts RB very much and is just a puppet .
      The truth is they have agreed that RB will control PF and MMD
      hence the task to DISCARD Judas Iscariot MUMBA as a diplomat.

      DPP NCHITO its RB is behind all this to pave way for a a puppet to make him free.
      The tribunal has already bn paid billions to find Nchito guilty .
      RB has bn boasting thanking Sakwiba Sikota that Easterners ruling now .
      RB is your President and 2016 is standing on PF Tkt
      Kaingu,Mwanakatwe,Vincent Mwale,Mvunga,Mulusa ,Simbao Katambo & soon very soon u shall see how one by one will be trashed .
      TIME IS NOW GUYS TO EITHER FLUSH THEM OUT OR…

    • Milpark Hospital – Departure Lounge for Zambian politicians. This is a disgrace!

      A country with no specialized healthcare …..!

    • @ Wanzelu @1.3

      Why do most of your comments have no provision for replies? Are you an editor at LT and blocking responses?

      However, I keenly follow your posts (you,Sido Mark, Nostradamus, etc). I must say I enjoy reading them.

      Coming to your point @1.3

      I agree with you totally more so because three of the dead prominent politicians have at some point in time lived at State House (Mwanawasa, Chiluba and Sata). Only Mazoka never did because for fear of unknown was denied his right to rule. Your point is even strengthened more because Mr. Nsanda who is said to have some type of cancer also works from State House. Remember RDA is at State House! Some type of poisoning could be the cause as was the case with that Russian Politician poisoned in London not long ago.

  2. I was hoping to see wifey, boxer Esther Phiri by Willie Nsanda’s bedside. What’s going on here?

    • Edgar must simply and humbly resign and make his own history, first of to be take care of his healthy. He needs that beer, and sweets to support his “low-sugar”.
      But most important, resign on grounds that him & his wife:
      BETRAYED Zambians by allowing himself to be a president when he was very sure that he was a patient.
      He it doesn’t help to be honest now about his health, it will not make him be a trustworthy man. What a selfish man, even they way he fought with Guy Scott, Edgar is selfish. RESIGN bro, just RESIGN you got what you wanted, presidency, and God will have mercy on you.

  3. STOP CARRYING THE WHOLE GOVERNMENT LUNG,ZAMBIANS WHY DO YOU ALLOW THIS EXPENDITURE WITH LESS WEALTH.WE ARE UNNECESSARY SPENDING MONEY ON HAVING ALOT ON THE PRESIDENTIAL ENTOURAGE EVEN AMERICA WITH BIG ECONOMY THEY DONT DO THIS EXCEPT FOR SECURITY REASONS NOW WITH US ZAMBIANS WHY MINISTER TRAVEL IN ADVANCE AND JUST TO WELCOME LUNGU,ALOT OF MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT ON THEM,HOTELS ,IMPREST AND OTHER ALLOWANCES,ITS NOT GOOD STOP THIS NONSENSE,ATTENTION SEEKER RB WHATS WRONG PEOPLE HELP THIS HULE YAMA POLITICS.

    • U are very dull presidency is an institution.nothing wrong in him seeking medical attention abroad.even Zuma flies out for medical check in UK.Zambians too illiterate.

    • HUMANITY

      WHAT OF IF IT WERE YOU IN THEIR SHOES , ARE YOU GOING TO REFUSE ALL THE IMPRESTS AND OTHERS. sTOP ALL THE UNNECESSARY COMMENTS. HE IS A PRESIDENT LET HIM BE.

      WHETHER YOU LIKE IT ALL NOT HE IS YOUR PRESIDENT TOO.
      COME NEXT YEAR HE WILL PULL THROUGH YOU WITCH.

      HE NEVER STORE ANY VOTES FROM ANY ONE HE JUST WORN THE ELECTIONS.

      BECAUSE OF THE TRIBALISM WHICH WE SAW IN JANUARY 2015
      2016 WE ARE ALSO COMING IN FULL SWING.

      REGARDS

      CONCERNED CITIZEN

    • WELL SAID.. I WAS ON A PLANE TO JO’BERG AND I WITNESSED THIS WITH MY OWN EYES. LUNGU SENT AN ADANCE PARTY OF OVER THIRTY PEOPLE TO ANGOLA. AND THE SAD PART WAS THAT MOST OF THEM WERE PURELY CADERS WHO COULD NOT EVEN SPEAK A WORD OF ENGLISH. ONE WOULD EXPECT AN ADVANCED PARTY TO BE COMPRESSED OF INTERLECTUALS OR PROFFESIONALS LIKE JORNALISTS.. THIS IS REALLY SAD..POOR TAX PAYERS

  4. Shameful indeed!!!! Zambian politicians congregating in SA for medical treatment, having left their hospitals back home. Its time to think of improving our hospitals…insoni

    • Even RB with his his acclaimed “knee” problem. When Sata was president, RB was extremely on daily basis crying foul about his leg. The problem RB has is that, he doesn’t know really where he belongs. Whether its MMD, PF or retirement, hence his legs are getting split up & start accusing the knee when corruption charges are getting closer to him mambala uja!

      Lungu, Nsanda & RB don’t care about the well being of the country, busy sending billions of Kwachas to South African hospitals should be rebuked by all well informed Zambians.

      The economy is meltingly down just like bathing soap, hence these visionless recycled belly politicians should be discarded forever!

      The Skeleton Key

    • My fellow Zambians were is our patriotism to our great country.Take forestance in Cuba ,when president Fidel Castro become sick he was treated within Cuba,The USA government is the sole manufacturer of the Airforce 1 which is the official aircraft for the USA president.Even Kaunda he has never been evacuated out of the country when ever is sick,he goes to UTH or Mina Soko,do you know why?It is easy to killed in a foreign medical facility than in Zambia.How does Lungu put his life in Mulenga Sata and Chikonde to organise the medical facility.Is the OP blind or we have amature intelligency officers these days?I know what hapened to Mazoka and Sata these guys were killed in a similar manner,while Ciluba and Mwanawasa died in a similar manner.Zambians open your eyes this country is dying .

    • There are more than 10 politicians attending medical treatment in South Africa, reasons are because tax payers money can afford paying huge bills for them. Why cant they use the same money to build or develop existing Hospitals to meet the same standards as those of South Africa so that an ordinary Zambian can have a benefit too?

      Every Zambian Life is equally important and so whats happening in South Africa is all trash.

    • Useless creature why don’t you come out openly and give good ideas on how to go about it rather than just opening your big mouth.

    • Apparently his “knee” issue. He really loves the “kamwendo munjila”.

      Nevertheless, they are meeting & sharing the monies’ they stole from the Zambian people, stashing some whilst paying back Boko Haram their dues.

      Henry Banda is the “Finance Bank” mini~star of this Kumawa cartel who don’t care about Zambians. When they are sick, them with their families run away from Zambian hospitals to foreign ones at the expense of sheepish Zedians.

      RB is a chief mambala who is here to destroy democracy, MMD, PF as well as the country. They are now conniving how they can get rid of Mutembo Nchito as DPP so that RB can be acquitted of his corruption cases currently in court. The country is gone to the “RATS!

    • RB there is the President of PF bane so let him be there .

      HATS OFF TO EVEREST CHELA OF KASAMA SAW IT .

      HATE HATE RB AND LUNGU .
      WISH WAS BA CHIKWANDA OR KALABA WHO STOOD MWE NOT THIS HYPROCRITE WE PUT

    • @Enka…

      If he is able to walk as you have observed, why spend so much to fly out for medical treatment? KK never used to fly out and he is still alive and even healthier than many of those running away from our country as “healthy” refugees. You mock Zambians that run to other countries (using their own hard earned money) to seek a better life and yet you are the first ones to dash out of the country using tax payers’ money to seek health services which our doctors at UTH and Maina Soko, Trust hospital and the ultra-modern hospital in Rhodes Park. can handle much more competently and maintain our dignity as a country. Very embarrassing indeed to see the assembly of our leaders in a foreign country. The South Africans are laughing at us, I can assure you.

    • True he appears normal when he walks around but if you listen carefully when he speaks he is short of breath and then the swelling of the face or cheeks is common for those with kidney issues. It will be great if he steps aside in 2016 and allows a more energetic candidate except he wont qualify for presidential pension when he does that…but the Zambian people are peace loving we would move parliament to build him a home and allow him at least 75% of the retirement package for a job well done….if I recall he actually initially declined to take office after Sata citing his health issues…but I might have misread….

    • No the position of Defense Minister has been offered to a citizen in the diaspora what has not been agreed upon is how the candidate should separate from his current well paying job….the inner cabinet is yet to meet to adopt the name the President has adopted…source say he is highly qualified served Zambia diligently in the past but settle in the diaspora….

  5. Shame SA has better hsptals,its better to work on ours rather than running after other pipo s hsptals, banda u always every where kikikikikikiki clever man,

  6. Ati willie nsanda is in a comma according to zwd,deos someone in a comma talk? Edgar has really out done zwd,his illness is not shrouded in secrecy so the dogs have nothing to report.of late their reporting is disjointed.the same event can be reported in 3 version with nothing to write home about.I give kudos to mwebantu and LT who are not politically inclined.even ZR which is now pf allows itself to be criticized.but for the Dogs all they do is to block.now the names are prominent of their fb are mweemba,hamusune,lubasi,muyunda,kazhila etc sad indeed.you now have to open 2 to 3 accounts just to ensure you comment.

  7. I feel sorry for him. Life has lots of lessons for all of us. We labour & gather much for ourselves but only to leave this world with nothing. Am often reminded of Christ’s wise words in Luke 12:13 – Take heed & beware of covetousness: a man’s life consists not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.

  8. A crook, hoodwinking people to believe his lies. The truth of his illness will come out very soon, why collapsing because of the neck problem? This is an extra burden to the country. Look at the people who have gone in advance because of the president being sick? They need to eat, drink, travel around, shopping and sleeping, all that is state man. We have continued with the legacy of a big health bill for the president. I feel very embarrassed as a patriotic Zambian and everyone is asking me about the health of our Zambian presidents. It is hard to explain. The man hardly campaigned, he just concentrated on rigging elections because of poor health and organising for Mosie Katumbi funds through Boko Haram (Nigerians) and suddenly the man wins. He has started persecuting the Bembas, OMG

  9. ba watch imbwa, you reported that willie was in a coma. So when did he come round or maybe you do not like writing about good things

  10. they rush to foreign hospitals at great expense to our taxpayers while our own hospitals are in tatters! Fellow Zambians, it is time we got serious about how we vote–enough of these mediocre chaps; lets vote for people with a plan and a vision for our country.

  11. It is too huge a delegation accompanying the President. What is their business in SA? Do they all want to witness Edgar’s treatment? Am not sure how much money will be poured into this tour.

  12. Regarding Willie Nsanda we do not want a garbage to be near state corridors again, sending him for medical attention outside the country. Let him use his stolen road contract funds to pay for his medical bills.
    Why is the President holding on to the Ministry of Defence? Simple, he wants to use that soldiers to steal money from the state and also help him rig elections next year. They did it this year and will do it again next year and that is why he has not demoted any of the Zambia Defence Forces commanders.
    The story of Millpark Hospital which has turned out to be a Zambian hosp in South Africa bcos every politician finds themselves there is very happy to charge Zambians as much as possible. Let the money continue flowing South African way because they may put it into good use.

    • U think before u comment.The president was Defence Minister & he closely worked with service chiefs.retire them yourself if u not comfortable with them.

  13. Our president and his wife are very caring and selfless people. Thank God for this man. Not abena fimofimo abasenda ama intelligence reports before the Boss. Yashani iyo? VIVA ECL!!!

  14. Fi ZWD ubufi…..ati Willie Nsanda is in a comma.Anyways what do you expect from those illiterates at ZWD who cant even write proper English.Useless…..

    • Maybe he has come out of coma,anyway if he is not seriously sick what is he doing for two months in the some hospital?

    • With cancer you can be in hospital for that long , Tandiwe has cancer and she was there for two months. Mutinta has cervical cancer she goes to India why dont you talk about that as zwd

  15. Mmmmmm icho rb bakamba he nevers wants to b out of the spot light,ichi chi mudala nacho,awe kwena? So comrade nsanda is still in the hospital?

  16. LT your reporting at times very bad. Lungu has gone for medical treatment as well and not to visit those chaps you are showing. we want to see him in bed just like ba Willie.
    Ba Willie you see no woman at your bed side. If you didnt ditch Esther, she was going to be by your side

  17. what is wrong with WILLIE NSANDA? After jumping at mulungushi rock of authority he went to hospital for resting?

  18. Willi Nsanda looks very sick but the one who is going to die very soon is Edgar chagwa Lungu,

    Edgar Lungu will not be with us to cerebrate in 2016.

    • Mwebantu mulekwatako uluse.Ukulwala tebwangalo.Mailo chikesa pali iwe.Quick recovery your Excellency and Mr. Nsanda.
      I hear morning side clinic stopped attending to chronic illnesses,so nomba babutukila ku millpark.Morning side does not want to have that tag of being referred to as a “death lounge”.

    • you satanist, you wish your freind to die. Iam saying it now that what you sow is what you rea. So you will die before him period.

  19. Comment 1.3 you are right. Let the medical check up for the president extend to radioactive poisoning. It is really sad for some people to venture into that if at all there are. How things are unfolding now is exactly what happened to the two late presidents and Mr. Mazoka! From no where things go as it happened on Sunday to the President! You can just tell by the ill comments some sections of media and individuals are passing! That is barbaric way of doing things in our country.

    • @ Wanzelu @1.3

      Why do your comments have no provision for replies? Are you an editor at LT and blocking responses?

      However, I keenly follow your posts (you,Sido Mark, Nostradamus, etc). I must say I enjoy reading them.

      Coming to your point @1.3

      I agree with you totally more so because three of the dead prominent politicians have at some point in time lived at State House (Mwanawasa, Chiluba and Sata).

Some type of poisoning could be the cause as was the case with that Russian Politician poisoned in London not long ago.

  20. Very shameful indeed to see Zambian leaders, both past and present feeling very comfortable and happy in a foreign land enjoying services that their fellow leaders have facilitated to put in place. These men are shameless and an embarrassment to the nation. The people of Zambia should pay attention to this and realise that these fellas are put in positions of power to bring similar services back home. How can our leaders be seen to enjoy eating food in other people’s homes living their own children hungry. No wonder their lives are miserable amidst plenty, these shameless lazy beggars.
    This really hurts you know.

  21. Lungu thanks Zuma for the hospitality to Zambia. Is the ordinary Zambian benefiting from RSA medical treatment?
    Lungu also claims he can run, repeating what was said about Sata before he died. Sad!
    As for RB, he is simply a disgusting old crook showing off everywhere.

    • RB the oldest crooking running the show, it is a pity the so called leaders do not even love the people and the country.

  22. Willie Nsanda used government money(RDA) to rig the election and made Edgar president. God is not happy about what these foolz did! God will surely intervene and be rest assured that willie and Edgar and who ever was involved in the rigging will DIE and their DEATHS will be HARSH and HURTING. The WAGES of SIN is DEATH! The two will definitely DIE SOON! That’s A PROMISE!

  23. Not to worry, folks. The president will be just fine and return to accomplish his mission designated to him by the forces divine.

    We believe there is a meaningful purpose to every physical misfortune, sickness, disease etc. The ancient Greeks called it Catharsis – purging out and cleansing through suffering.

  24. To a every action there’s a price tag. The politicians in Zambia think the electorate are fools. Look at them now, one is laid in bed and the other chasing for life at the expense of the electorate.
    EL is still on probation period but can someone come up with how much has been spent on him so far??? What a shame!!

  25. We are in damned big trouble. Zambians are languishing and walowing in poverty, when you fall sick, know that your destination is death Chingwele. I am not disappointed at all but if those in the habit of Zambians continue doing this, theirs is also one of those Parks in Lusaka. The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY said I leave you with the Holy spirit who searches your hearts and will tell me exactly what your intesions are and you will be delt with accordingly.

  26. Imwe vima Zambian Politician muti mvwisha nsoni. You are even parading yourselves there as though its anything to be proud of. You are a dead leadership!! Stinking trash!!

  27. Today I am really angry about reading of a delegation going to SA to witness one man getting admitted to hospital, and to see former leaders so comfortable in South Africa. I must admit that I am a bit soft on Lungu because I think he represents the new generation of leaders and has a chance do the right things regardless of how he ascended to power, but what is Mulenga doing there anyway? These fellas are having a good time, enjoying life in the pretext of working. I mean, they are getting allowances and some free cosy accommodation, plus good food, you name it including women when there is a looming shortage of fuel back home. Any way, a reminder to all is that no matter how far you want to run away from your home and your own, when your time is up you remains will be brought back home

  28. Why are all those idiiots SA really? Lungu is sick and can be accompanied by his wife and spokesperson with a few bodyguards. But other govt officials wasting time and resources there in the name of accompanying the president is just ridiculous and unacceptable. Lungu and staff must start thinking with their brains we cannot go on wasting resources in that manner. We have embassy officials there to receive the president and make some logistics.

    • @The Observer you are right to question.I dont trust these Bemba Chaps,Lungu should be carefull.Earlier i gave you a hint.Zambians pray hard.I smell a dead rat.

  29. Utterly no shame at all from these Pathetic F**ls, this no different to that picture of a sick old man Sata visiting his injured son in a RSA hospital…like we always the real leaders behind President Edgar Lazy who pull the strings are former president Banda, he is there to protect his investment.
    I hope that fat corrupt pig Nsanda doesn’t kick the bucket as these people have to answer for their crimes. ZWD was right after all.

    Wake up from your docility Zambians!!

  30. ” this was extra-ordinary that the head of State has been as forth- coming and as open as Lungu about his health status ” Reported Sophie Mokeona of SABC. indeed this is so extra-ordinary !!!! Lungu is indeed an examplary leader and he has really changed the ancient way of doing politics, everyday i keep liking this man. he is a shinning example to Zambia and Africa. i would rather vote for Lungu even in the Coffin than vote for a tribal party. Come 2016 wina Azalila Nafuti

    • @ dossRemove your uncivilised mind among as a generation who know no Tribe because we are mixed.We look for qualities that can bring Economic development not comedians or Drunkards who are frank about there sickness after leading a bad life.He was supposed to be in state house planing how to remove zambia from the shackles of poverty .How many people and poor children die every day at UTH without medication more than 100 per day and you there saying wina a zalila 2016.Its you who is going to cry when loose your father from malaria when there is no Fansdar in clinics and you have no many to book a taxi to rush him to hospital while them they go to a Challenger jet off they fly to SA.

  31. Thank God our president is doing fine and no weapon shall prosper against you. pray without ceasing, with prayer everything is possible.

  32. The people complaining are all in diaspora. They left Zambia for greener pastures yet they don’t want the President to access first class medical care elsewhere.

  33. @13 the issue of radioactive poisoning shud be done as well. The op who are close to the president and at the same time being controlled by hh can do such a thing to ohr presidents. Hangover alone can never cause someone to collapse. Lets get to the bottom of this and fish out the culprit.

    • Remove HH from the picture.Its those that are close to him and stands to benefit directly if he dies.For example those he has betrayed for putting Inonge vice president a lozi and not a Bemba.HH won he was swindled and he is standing and he will a clean way.I know HH is not in politics for his survival its not do or die thats why he did not go to court.

  34. LUNGU AND HIS BLIND AND GREEDY SUPPORTERS SHOULD NOT BE IN CONTINUOUS DENIAL. THEY WERE IN SAME DENIAL WHEN WE ADVISED THEM ON SATA’S HEALTH. WE NOW AGAIN ADVICE THEM FOR LUNGU TO STEP DOWN IF HE STILL WANTS TO LIVE. DON’T LISTEN TO ILL ADVICE FROM HENCHMEN WHO JUST WANT TO SECURE THEIR JOBS. WHEN LINGU DIES THESE GLUTTONS WILL REMAIN EATING. STEP DOWN LUNGU AND SERVE YOUR LIFE. HAND OVER MANTLE OF POWER TO HH BECAUSE HE IS THE RIGHTFUL OWNER WHO WAS GIVEN THE LARGEST VOTE BY THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA. LUNGU WILL NOT LIVE TO ENJOY STOLEN GLORY. IF YOU ARE WISE, STEP DOWN BEFORE WORSE BECOMES WORST.

  35. MUYEBA IS STILL THERE. LOOK AT HIS WIFE’S FAKE CHI GRIN OR IS IT SMILE (CHRISTINE KASEBA’S SISTER). KUYA BEBELE MULI MUNSHILA YOU WAIT AND SEE.
    ECL GET WELL SOON AND CONTINUE DISCARDING YOUR ENEMIESOF PROGRESS

    • Unfortunately friend, Muyeba and wife are not going anywhere……sorry to disappoint you….you will wait till you drop dead????????????

  36. I didn’t know that Nsanda and Esther Phiri are no longer together. Too bad for Esther Phiri. Anadyako chabe mambala.

  37. While the poor tax payers have no medicines, no bed spaces, giving birth on dirt floors in hospitals, our politicians are using our money to get the best treatment.
    Surely, after 50 years of independence we are still a province of south Africa, shame on us and Africa, because even the facilities being used now in south Africa where built by whites.
    What is wrong with black people kanshi.
    This is the very question i want to ask God when I meet him in person in heaven.
    What is wrong a blank African Kashi, Why, Why, Why, Africa, crying now.

  38. @ sido whatever, i dont have time for bitter people like you, you always spew bitterness on this site especially towards our president. why do you have so much hatred towards Lungu? what did he do to you ? you are too personal in your analysis of things, Nanga why chakubaba that Lungu is in South Africa? nanga nindalama zanioko? it is his prevaledge my dear friend to have such services it not his fault. get a life !!!!!! unless cows will be allowed to vote next year, otherwise your HH will never kiss the gates of state house . Tikolopa nafuti in 2016, its Edgar Chabe whether in a coffin or not . Wina azalila nafuti next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. It hurts me for us to be blinded and not listen to advice that EL was a sick man and still voted for him.So much money is being spent on treatment on somebody who hasnt served much.Awe mwandi chabipa.The economy is bad and no driver in the seat and kwacha has weakened further cos of the presidents falling ill.We shouldnt be aspiring to higher office disregarding our healthy status.Mwanawasa after he had stroke he still went on to 2nd term,Sata became sick before 2011 but he still went ahead and stood for presidence and now EL even when it was evident he wasnt well he still went ahead supported by even medical people like Nkandu LUO and Dr Kasonde.God help us.

    • You are very right, this country is a joke. Barely a month or so after being elected into office the President is already a medical tourist at great cost to the country. When are we going to wise up kanshi and get serious with issue of a President in this country. It seems now any Tom, Dick and Harry or Jane and Sheila can become President of this country!!.

  40. @ blago

    its you thats dumb , because your only focus is to see cows and mabisi at statehouse which will never happen.Instead of you conceeding defeat, and offer some advise and some economical ideas to the current government like is the case in the U.S, you are just busy trying to see faults in the government waiting to see who will die so you can take over.it true, we can not progress with people like you, in the end you are the who is the most dumbest.

    • That is why HH will not ever win because he wants to take over from the dead.
      But even if EL dies, HH has alot to face in PF, we have VP, Simbyakula, kalaba, improved Sampa, Lubinda. Sata junior. All these will beat pants down under 5 HH.
      So let them continue farting up to 2064

  41. What is chi ma Rupiah also doing in South Africa, was he also part of the advance team? The man should be in jail now for his various criminal offences as President, I mean that’s why the stupid son run away is it not?

  42. But chi RB is a man! Even the Past and their so called DPP have failed to break his spirit, always jovial! That is my President!
    And of course my new President Edgar, wish you well and come back to our beloved country healthier to continue the good work so far!

  43. We told you Ba PF that RB is now your president.
    You are all in Zambia ‘njala ya munyokolani’, RB and ECL are ejoying in RSA, meeting and discuss how to dislodge every PF mean ideals and replace them with MMDs. Where is your spine except your moronic saying ‘Ifintu ni Lungu. Owe! ati ubupuba.
    Thes Bembas! ‘Ma fee year car, year car.

  44. Maybe I’ll look like an idiót for asking a question that is supposed to be common knowledge, but if I don’t ask I’ll remain ignorant. Who is Willie Nsanda and why the hell did he beat our president to a hospital bed in South Africa?

  45. Look to the Honey Bee’s Hive for wisdom. All the bees work flat out to bring resources to the Hive. The QueenBee is the most most important member of the Hive as she guarantees a good output of Honey. She sits inside and is protected, guarded jealously by the Bees. Without Her they are lost.

    There is much wisdom emparted by nature. Your Kateka is your business. The care we give him is a direct measure of our Nations well being.

    It has to be said, a good Leader ensures his subjects also receive the same care in preserving their lives. We appeal to the Zambian Gov’t and all Politicians, even those in Opposition, LETS JOIN HANDS IN EQUAL ACCESS TO MEDICAL TREATMENT AND FACILITIES. The nations health is important. The Mines if nationalised should spend on good health for…

  46. I know one thing that for a every effect, there is a cause and that things don’t just happen………..when they do, there is always a trigger point to that effect.

    Sicknesses or whatever illness that follow someone because now there are president, leaves much to be desired. If they were already sick, must the sickness be evident when they are in that Office? Or die because now they are President. EL must be checked for radioactive poisoning. Its one of the latest and most covert assassination methods being used by assassins. I believe, even the other late Presidents have to be exhumed and checked.

    We have politicians with an insatiable appetite for power and fear of having never to rule zambia – they can go for anything using money to buy assassins. Watchout EL and Zambia.
