President Edgar Lungu has been discharged from a Pretoria Hospital in South Africa.

Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda said the Head of State who was admitted to a Pretoria Hospital was discharged today after specialist doctors certified him fit to resume his duties.

Mr Chanda said the President underwent a successful medical procedure yesterday on March 13, 2015.

He said the President is working on arrangements for his return to Lusaka.

President Lungu was admitted at a Pretoria hospital where he underwent a theatre procedure yesterday to correct his achalasia, a condition of the narrowing of the food pipe which caused him to fall ill during the celebrations of the International Women’s Day on March 8 at the Heroes stadium in Lusaka.

The President left the country for specialist treatment on Tuesday, 10th March.

  1. Look at his face, a man haunted & caught up in his own web of lies! You can not fool God or nature.

    • The entire country there is a shortage of fuel. Come back home Lungu, atleast Maina Soko is near state house.

      Please Zambians, impeach this visionless Lungu b’coz he has failed the economy.

    • I wish Zambia and all its leaders, good health and integrity. May God’s Mercy, Grace and Love shine on Zambia and its people.

      #prayforzambia

    • Mr Skeleton Man – Please stick to talking about your ‘president’ who ‘won’ the elections according to him and you. HEEL is our President who won the elections.

    • Don’t forget the average life expectancy for Zambia zambia is 43-48. So, it shouldn’t be surprising to see the leaders affected by it too. He should thank God he is president otherwise he would have kicked the backet last week and the people old woman were going to be accused of witchcraft.

    • The nega nega witches are spending sleepness nights . Even if ecl died hh will never rule this country. Because he comitts adultary durin capaigns with a known widow

    • My advise to you Mr President as you are recovering, is to immediately discontinue Mutembo’s case as it is bad for a country’s human rights record but instead, concentrate more on mending fences and the economy which currently, is not doing very well at national and international level.

    • You are a fool and stupid ***** iwe. Mulekwatako amano imwe bakolwe. IFINTU NI LUNGU CHABE. KUMWENU TAMULWALA MULINDOSHI?

    • You have mobilised nega nega best witches to cast a spell. It wont Work done is zero U5 nn will n never rule this country, j

      This lugu you hate so much yet we gave u vote from east province you fulls.

      You must plead for our r vote. As for us , we dont need a single vote from dundumwezi or nega nega in order to produce a president. We alway score zeros fronm nega nega yet we winm

  2. GOOD NEWS THAT MY PRESIDENT ( OUR PRESIDENT) IS IN GOOD HEALTH.NOW COME BACK AND DEAL WITH THE CARTEL.WIRE THEM

  3. Just by looking at Lungu in these two pictures, anyone can see that he is in no condition to take up duties of any kind. The man needs to retire on medical grounds. But to you PF zealots we are saying this because we just want the president dead. No sir! It’s you who wishes the president dead by pushing him to an earlier grave. He needs a rest to demobilize his vitality to the maximum possible in these circumstances. Mama Esther, you are the only one left, please do something for your hubby

    • History repeating itself and we wonder why we never develop…the empty tin Edgar Lazy 3 months told us he was fit and we believed him instead of pushing for mandatory testing for all presidential candidates. Now we are stuck with another liability.

  4. Although they claim he is fit to start work he looks drained and dizzy and should not be rushed to work.
    When he suffers another collapse or anything else he must be confined to the UTH or Maina Soko for treatment, no more wastage of GRZ coffers on evacuations. It’s enough!

    • How do you want him to look after the hospital iwe chombwi no plan? A hos[ital is for the siock and our President was sick. He will pick up you prophets of doom ………..COME BACK MR PRESIDENT AND SORT OUT THE THIEVES WHO HAVE BEEN HIDDING IN THE NAME OF BEING LAW MAKERS AND SCRIBES

    • It is these Lusakatimes chaps who typed their own things. The original statement from Amos Chanda read, “the presidency…” meaning his office, the people who run his affairs.

  5. More time being wasted on sick Presidents..President Lazy just go and sleep you got into State House your ambition achieved with no vision like Old man Sata …meanwhile the kwacha is a joke and there is fuel shortage.

    We told you people that this visionless man was ill but you believed his lies…you could have had voted for Nawakwi if HH was not choice.

  6. Let us learn to respect our leadership and learn to be ethical in what we write. I wish to thank God for interceding in our President’s recovery. Welcome back home and continue with your vision which the visionless can not see. We are there for you as you are there for us.

    • God hasn’t interceded in anything, Lungu is sick, he has been sick & has been hiding that fact. If God was interested he would have long healed him, God does not need someone to collapse in public, be flown off to SA then decide to do something about it. If God operated that way then he is an almight f00l which off course he is not. Nobody delights in the sickness of another, what upsets us is that we are now in a situation of having to deal with another State funeral and byelections. I do not understand how any Zambian wouldn’t find this an issue. The only alternative explaination would be that a number of you want to continue eating off EL until he drops dead!

    • Leaders should learn to respect the electorate….respect is earned not given like water.
      Moreover Edgar Lazy is a public servant YOU are paying for this empty tin to have the privilege to have specialists MEDICAL treatment ABROAD at the expense of poor taxpayers…you just finished paying old man Sata treatment, flights, fuel to and from specialists hospital now we are wasting moneys on another liability who will leave us in deeper debt.
      Wake up from your docility!!

  7. Doesn’t make sense, nor sit well, I mean it’s incredibly stup!!d for a president of a sovereign state to perennially seek medical attention in other countries. What about a little sense of pride in their own facilities? Always shamelessly trooping to neighbors, please stop it! They have never heard of their counterparts in the region doing the same, excepting Malawians. If a leader has no faith in his own facilities he is mandated to promote and develop, do you think he cares about his country? This sick guy must resign and focus on preserving his life.

    • You are absolutely spot on..look at around you we are a nation of consumers to the average Zambian development is have a RSA owned shopping mall in every township…its no wonder the RSA investors are charging K700 for TV subscription …really laughable…in Europe you can pay telephone, 20MB fiber optic broadband plus premium TV subscriptions with that amount of money. Even the beer we drink every weekend from the bar fridge is all foreign owned…I was in shoprite when in Zambia and was appalled to find that even some as easy to manufacture as black polish is imported from Kenya.
      We never look for solutions and have no pride in self…we are passing on this mindsets to our children….we need to rethink.

    • Jay Jay,

      You are right on the money.

      We have severe cancerous complexes that are displayed, in a major way, in all aspects of our lives especially in the market place. We desire foreign stuff. Consequently, stup!dty becomes manifest in our failure to realize that as long as we romanticize this desire, we will never be free. Like Nkrumah said, Political independence without economic independence is meaningless.

      Zambia and Zambians will never be free until they start to love and respect themselves. This means valuing that which comes from them. Every country strives to etch its place in the history of the world by placing something of value for all to consume With us, unfortunately, it is the opposite. We sit on our behinds and want to consume what others have created.

  8. Grateful that our President, our means all Zambians, like it or not, is coming home. Hope he fully recovers. What is sad is how many of us, including the Zambia Watchdog, used the Presidents sickness to come out with a lot of garbage, shame on us all. The Watchdog should realise that as part of the media, they should be true in their reporting, don’t become The Post, initially well respected & now becoming history. Let us learn to criticise in a right & respectful manner, not bring out ones unconfirmed ailments, it is a shame that the ZWD prints lies for the numbers. We pray for peace, stability & good health for all Zambians.

  9. HAUNTED AND FRAIL MAJAKETI AYO
    FEEL FOR THIS MAN
    HE NEVER WANTED TO STAND ITS THE SELFISHNESS OF BENA LUO,JEAN KAPATA,KALABA ,MWILA ATI ANNOINTED ,THE MAN WAS NEVER ANNOINTED .HES BEING PUNISHED FOR LYING THAT SATA ANNOINTED HIM.IMIPASHI YABA SATA YALIFULWA FOR LUNGU TO HAND OVER THE PARTY TO RB AND TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE TO MAKE KAINGU A FULL MINISTER THE FOOL WHO WAS ONCE TORE SATAZ SPEECH .
    MALIBU YAKUILOMBELA

    RESIGN BWANA MAJAKITALA

    • Recall also that it was Lungu, as Home Affairs Minister, who barricaded the palace of the Bemba Royal Establishment, forbidding the coronation of the Chitimukulu. Ba ShiLubemba were pissed off and spat on the ground. So, when EL was campaininging thought he could gloss over and all will be ok.

      Muletekanya mwebana. Batila “cintomfwa amenene umwefu kwikoshi.” Is it a coincidence that EL’s surgical operation was kwikoshi? (Pun unintended)

      Our ancestors were not stupid.

  10. ENDOSCOPY WAS DONE AND AFTER THE TUBE INSERTED TO WIDEN THE NARROWING .

    DONE WHEN SOMEONE HAS CARCINOMA ADVANCED STAGE OF CANCER PALLIATIVE NOT CURATIVE

  11. Foolishness and stupidity has overridden in some groups of people in this country. Whether you’re Panga family or not, no one is excepted from suffering. Kwacha is at its cross,no fuel,high cost of living!! TIME WASTERS IN GOVERNANCE

  12. Nega Nega people are fools and *****s, who celebrate when one is sick. Which person has never fallen sick in their lives? What kind of people or tribe are you on this wonderful planet?????????????????

  13. When u call someone ifintu, they don’t last. Lungu will not last. We used to say the same abt sata.. Where is he today?

  14. We have information from RSA hospital where ECL went for medical treatment. All what Zambians are told is president ECL is fit to work. Zambians were not informed in the first place that president ECL is unfit to work due to sickness.
    Today truth is not told to Zambians.
    President ECL is still seriously sick. The president is diabetic, has cancer of the trachea, kidney problems and currently on immune booster treatment. These ailment conditions will make him not perform to the demands of the office of the president. Arrangements need to be made now to avoid confusions as it happened with late president Sata.
    I know some Zambians do not like truth as stated but we cant pretend that truth is false with evidence all over us.
    Let us be ready for eventuality of things to come in our…

    • @ 19 Aquilla

      Zambians usually prefer to operate out of ignorance. President Lungu’s illness is not new. Notwithstanding that reality, they preferred him above the other candidates.

  15. Get well our Changwa…God loves you…but you also do your part….desist from telling lies ka! remember your lies about your health during campaigns…”Ubufi bulaya nokubwela….Lesa Tabepwa…alasebanya pachinso chabantu…the legendary PK tells us in his Pole Pole song” You will die na money ishale.State house if for fit people ka…too much pressure from People like the Post and HH…just like Sata used to put preesure on Levy……Appologize to the Masses you lied to…least you kick the shomeka….afterall,your health is worsening and any time we might see another headline from the post….this time it will not be “CHAGWA AGWA but CHAGWA AFA”

  16. Aquila what you have written is worrying. This is how the stories started circulating about Sata. The whole country knew what was wrong but PF denied everything. I wish EL all the best and if it is true he should do the right thing because the presidency will have an impact on his health.
    He has been transparent about being ill so let him decide whathe will do.

  17. Tongas celebrate when one who is not Tonga is sick or dies especially if he is a politician. You celebrated when Sata died and hoped your time to rule has finally come which unfortunately never materialised or will never materialise. Without shame you are now celebrating on the alleged sickness of ECL hoping that he dies which unfortunately will never happen bane. When Mazoka died did you ever hear any tribe in Zambia celebrate? Kanshi what kind of people or tribe are you in this lovely country Zambia?

  18. we thank God for this man.we have alot to be proud of over his election as President..Shem on all critics like skeletion…

  19. Prophets of doom, illwishers, mephistopheles supporters of stone cold faced villager- thou shall he not rule! Inonge shall ascend to power lest of incapacity- but watch The Classic One shall continue outsmarting you and you shall forever be bitter!

  20. With Sata at least he was fat then started shrinking but with Lungu kaya. One day people will start pleading for this HH who is hated for no reason and it will too late. I’m so sure the PF wants to take this country to the gravel with them.

    Anywho we sit back and relax and see how things will unfold in this year.

    #feelingsorryformotherZambia

  21. Please get well soon my president.We gave you overwhelming mandate to heal this sick nation and we are confident you will rise to the occasion sir and prove the skeptics wrong.

  22. Really sad for Zambia. I can not repeat some of the utterances being made by collegues from around the globe.

  23. I am just wondering whether those doctors who declared him fit the first time are really competent doctors or it was Lungu who was lying despite being told the truth. Those doctors should be fired for lying to him leading him to collapse in public. Looking at the pictures of the man, he looks very disoriented and confused. I am sure he is in deep thought as to what to expect next. Where is the fake plastic smile that he normally puts on for his publicity stunts? Just looking at him, he cannot handle the pressure, he is contemplating what he can do next. Taking another leave might not be possible because he knows the nation will now get too alarmed. Why is he forcing himself to go back to the office when he knows that things are not well with me. Would the presidency save his life?

    • You are a prophet of Doom you also. How do you pride in someones sickness? Talk something sensible we mbwa wee

  24. God hasn’t interceded in anything, Lungu is sick, he has been sick & has been hiding that fact. If God was interested he would have long healed him, God does not need someone to collapse in public, be flown off to SA then decide to do something about it. If God operated that way then he is an almight f00l which off course he is not. Nobody delights in the sickness of another, what upsets us is that we are now in a situation of having to deal with another State funeral and byelections. I do not understand how any Zambian wouldn’t find this an issue. The only alternative explaination would be that a number of you want to continue eating off EL until he drops dead!

  25. let him leave the office, there is plessure baba muzamwarira state house muyende che pa sick retirement beta ko

  26. The man looks fit and very focussed. All those wishing the opposite must be very bitter that he is walking very comfortably on his own. Even the security men are very relaxed and not crowding round him as if expecting him to collapse at any stage.

  27. Our President, the Republican President EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU is back to the dismal of his ill wishers. The President is ver fit and will no doubt bury Ichilema once and for all in in 2016.
    Most of you are very sik but you hide because of your own shame. At least every ZAMBIAN know that their President is not threatened by any serious illness and THIS IS A BIG PLUS.

    Those who ascend to power by wishing others dead will and shall NEVER RULE ZAMBIA. WELCOME SIR AND SORT OUT THE MESS OF THE CARTEL AND CHIKWANDA SAGA. LET CHIKWANDA AND SHAMENDA RETIRE FOR OUR ECONOMY TO BOOM. THEY ARE TIRED MEN!

    HH AND UPND WILL NEVER BE IN POWER IN ZAMBIA.

  28. Let’s see how they pull out of this one. Greedy leaders. But you can’t cheat the Zambian people anyone. You know the truth about your health. God was trying to tell you something. You know God is a good God and gives us alot chances. Why do you think you had to collapse in front of the whole world and not in the confines of state house. LESA UYU ALASEBAMNYA..MWEBANTU LESA TAFWEPWA…

  29. shame on you Inone wina for imposing problems on Zambians, Thumbs up to Guy scot for his foresight. Lets wait now for the congress in 2016 and see who is principled

  30. I wonder you guys who are thinking HHHHH is happy .The truth is the one person who is happy than ever before is RB rb RB rb

    RB is even ready dishing out money to his MMD pipo bribing them as ever before to make sure all is taken in readiness for any eventualities in PF

    HE HAS TAKEN OVER THE PARTY AND YOU ARE BUSY ACCUSING HHH.
    YOU HAVE A DEVIL IN YOUR MIDST PF INSTEAD OF PUTTING YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER U ARE BUSY ATTACKING HHHH.
    HH IS COMFORTABLE AS OPPOSITION LEADER ITS YOU THE PF WHO HAS A WOLF AMONGST YOURSELVES TAKING OVER YOU

  31. Let the scoundrels repent their sins against innocent Zambians (late DPP Mukelabai), mend their fences first, respect fellow citizens, stop insulting our intelligence then we can consider reconciliation. But since they are too conceited to do any of the above, tribunal is there to level the playing field.

  32. Leave RB alone you fools, you mean to say Mmembe and his Past news have a spell on you? If so then you must be simpletons or downright nincompoos.

  33. Did the jealous Bembas try to poison and rid us of our dear eastern president Edgar Lungu?

    Losing power can be hard to take but Bembas should accept that zambia is not all about Bembas.Jingas na greedy pumbavus.

    • President Edgar Lazy is a visionless simple man if he knew the mammoth task that came with presidency ..he wouldn’t have chose this route but we know that these empty tins never did anything when they were ministers under old man Sata, its no surprise he called them useless…what did he do at Home Affairs or Justice?

  34. Truth
    If EL passes on. Next will not be HH but will come from the following;
    1. Dr Simbiakula
    2. Lubinda Given
    3 Kalaba
    4. Sampa
    5. I. Wina

    So u see it is not any time soon for HH. Not in our life time

  35. What is annoying is not Lungu being sick, but why he was elected into office despite all the signs and warnings. Is Zambia or indeed PF devoid of healthy people to lead the country? Look at as now. The kwacha is into free fall, fuel shortages, mining industry in turmoil, wage freeze and instead of fixing these things we are fixing Lungu’s health issues just a few months after spending tax payers money on Sata. What kind of nation are we. My advice to you jobless youths is that they will never give you jobs however violent you become. They fly abroad for treatment while you rot at UTH with no medicine. You will die poor leaving your pangas behind. Open your eyes and look for leaders who care irrespective of what party.

    • what did you expect. He has no personality, the frail structure, dressing, facial expression all tell of a person under confusion. Did you see him dance on video at Harare airport?

  36. These looks not encouraging. You mean Zambia with a population of about 14m that’s all you could settle for? It pains me as a tax payer, paying for medicals of two Presidents in a roll and one funeral As usual kaponyas who dont pay taxes have final say. What are a country!

  37. Too myopic. Simple minds discuss people. Great minds discuss issues/ideas. Mostly, critics reveal what they lack indeliberately. Hatred is the revenge of the coward for being intimidated. Are you proud to be a Zambian? Be patriotic. GOD BLESS ZAMBIA.

  38. Great that our President is out of Hospital.
    Take a look at the Contracts for Fuel Supply again. There are invisible hands at play. These Contracts were made by Kabimba.
    We have in our midst desperate people who can do anything to bring the government down.
    These people want things to be bad for Zambia, and Fuel and the Kwacha Exchange rate are the things they will touch. They have fought you from the time you gained the confidence of the Late MCS, and they are fighting you now.
    Contact your Friend Kikwete to allow the Fuel Cargo Ships to dock, and ensure a government to government Fuel deal ASAP. Dont allow Criminals masquerading as scribes and Economists to mislead. I wellcome you back to Zambia. You have my Trust . We know all the Schemes and cannot be fooled .

  39. This PF is a failed project. We have lost five years of the history of Zambia. Unfortunately we have continued to let the street/mishanga boys dictate the direction of the country. Why take people to school if the educated will behave like the sleepy Zambians.
    We have only one country and surely we should learn to protect it.
