Chief Government Spokesperson Dora Siliya has indicated that the Patriotic Front Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili has not been evacuated to South Africa for treatment as the family refused the offer by government to do so.

Ms. Siliya noted that government had last night offered to have Mr. Kambwili evacuated to South Africa for treatment but his family declined the offer.

She explained that government through the Ministry of Health last night engaged with Mr. Kambwili’s managing doctors at CFB Hospital where he is admitted before arriving at the decision of evacuating him to South Africa.

Ms. Siliya said there were some misunderstandings that arose during the process as the family of Mr. Kambwili thought government wanted to interfere without their consent.

The Chief Government Spokesperson, who is also Information and Broadcasting Services Minister has however, noted that it is regrettable that Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa issued a statement early this morning about the evacuation of Mr. Kambwili before the family’s approval and also before the position was clear.

She told journalists at a media briefing in Lusaka today, that there is no point of circulating such information to the public before the position is clear adding that, government has a channel of communication in such matters.

And Ms. Siliya advised that there is no need for the family of Mr. Kambwili’s and his followers to feel suspicious about government’s offer to have him evacuated as it is the responsibility of government to ensure his well-being.

She also cautioned people to stop bringing politics in the matter adding that, all the innuendos and suspicions are not helping the situation.

Ms. Siliya noted that government is responsible to ensure that all Zambians receive quality health care especially those with Mr. Kambwili’s standing in the country but added that, government can only offer one to be evacuated and not force

  1. The PF are just used to careless spending have Doctors recommended that Kambwili be evacuated ??? U are a government and leadership of excesses and Kambwili is right to refuse.

    • IF THE FAMILY SAYS NO, WELL THEN HEED.
      “””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””
      I will not take that as an complaint but as call to justification and exoneration if anything happened to him. What have we got to lose? If the family wants to have its way, we have head you loud and clear.

    • Because they are scared of the truth coming out. Kambwili is not Sick. Give him a burger and some fries.

    • Emmanuel Mwamba is incompetent. All he does is cimbuya on Facebook. He has no idea what protocol is. Recall that moon face!

    • You inject Kambwili with poison and now you want to send him to South Africa. How are you guys managing our economy up to this time?

    • Also Dora”s attempt of damage control has thrown fuel into the fire. Why throw incompetent Mwamba under the bus when you are fighting for the same side

    • PF falling into Kambwili’s trap…the man is not even sick…even Doctors in Zambia are corrupt…Lungu told them uubomba mwibala alya mwibala….you can see kambwili smiling in his oxygen mask…i remember when i was little i used to pretend like am very sick if i didnt want to go to school…and Kambwili now has the attention that he needs…and guess who will fall sick in the police cells next time…i wont mention his name. Some Presidential wannabe is about to entice police to arrest him very soon because Kambwili is getting too much press and once he gets to the police station he will start acting like adwala khunyu
      my only advise to Lungu is just to ignore these crowns and concentrate on helping poor Zambians who are suffering

    • Kambwili is not Kasaka, he’s junior cobra and a real pro poor PF. He wants all Zambians to be evaluated and given billboards. Billboards are not just for Lusambo and Mwanakatwe. Dora will not understand, she’s MMD!

    • It just goes to show people that in Zambia …if you truly want access to the best medical care in the World just join politics as I have seen parents of friends who were top Directors in NGOs and Private sector they had to dig deep to fly abroad…these selfish greedy disgusting things like Lazy Lungu can just sign and an Air Ambulance will be on top of your hospital to whisk you away. You shameful crooks sponging off taxpayers whom you can not provide basic services.
      Shame on you Lazy Lungu!!!!

    • Its really embarrassing for these foools that they are commenting on an individual the whole President and Govt spokeswoman…this is how myopic this govt.
      Shambles indeed

    • Shame on you authorizing air ambulance on BUFFOON CK you refused Police Bond…if you stop interfering you wouldn’t be left mopping up your own vomit; the whole President signing off on someone refused bond and arrested. We need separation of powers these foools have turned the Office of President in a kaponya rat hole.
      Shame on you Lazy Lungu!!

    • @1,2 Jay Jay
      I agree with you the PF govt has fallen into Kambwili trap…out of 15 million suffering Zambians why pay attention to one individual…So a politicians life is more important than ordinary Zambians…this shows that Lungu is fake and a big time pretender. Its a pity we don’t have anyone credible who can lead Zambia at the moment.LUNGU HAS FAILED AND HE IS PLAYING WITH KAMBWILI THE BIG SNAKE..

    • Evacuated Evacuated Evacuated ne nsoni iyoo. Why can’t Zambians treat themselves? Why do they have to fly to south Africa every time they have a cough?

    • Zodwa Wabantu Siliya says Kambwili’s family refused to have CK evacuated to RSA. Was it not Lungu’s government that was also trying to force CFB management to have CK transferred to UTH? What was that which Lungu’s government tried to do to have CK transferred to UTH without the authority of the Kambwili family? You had to send three directors from Ministry of Health to try and force CFB management to have CK transferred to UTH. Why did you try to do this against the wish of CK and his family? Did you want to poison CK from UTH iwe Zodwa Wabanti Siliya?

    • Why to South Africa?
      They did that to Nsanda, and he died.
      This is about Emmanuel Mwamba and Dora’s political scores.
      Why is Chitalu Chilufya not one yapping?
      South Africa my foot. Take him to Namibia ….

    • All these evacuations cost lots of money! If well thought out of the many political expedient interventions of flying especially politicians for treatment abroad, wouldn’t money spent if used to procure/replenish equipment for national medical institutions bit by bit gradually help medical personnel be effective in saving many more lives? Kambwili, and may he recover soon, was right to think of those less privileged still awaiting evacuation for much more serious needed attention! Here is Dora on the Zambian “castes”….”all Zambians receive quality health care especially those with Mr. Kambwili’s standing in the country”…. Mr Kambwili’s standing is that of politician!

  2. Just get rid of the police officers. How normal are you to surround a patient in ICU with armed police officers. May his sickness and blood speak against you. Your intentions shall not succeed. He walk out of that place stronger and resilient!

  3. BP & whatever his sugar levels are is no reason to evacuate some one. Unless the guilty of his arrest is at play.

    • As reported by BBC:
      Opposition yamano noti iya BaKambwili na HH. Cheap and meaningless opposition which will never take Zed anywhere…opposition politics of their fat bellies only. Shame

      Kenya’s opposition leader Raila Odinga, the self-declared “peoples president”, made another public appearance with his long-time political nemesis turned “brother and friend”, President Uhuru Kenyatta.

      The two leaders who have decided to work together to “reconcile the nation” after a bitter and often violent political campaign period attended a golf-tournament together on Sunday.

  4. Madam this is a very political situation the government has failed to provide quality health care to the point that even the President has to travel out for even a silly check up. And yourself as far as I know went for a simple sinus treatment in India with your mother under the MMD the cost of which for the treatment was 50 USD but the cost of travel and accommodation were ridiculous. Most ministers travel for treatment or check ups over ailments that can easily be sorted here. But there is this sense of being above us and the last parts of the statement she has issued just confirms that.

    • …… to ensure that all Zambians receive quality health care especially those with Mr. Kambwili’s standing in the country”…

  5. CK is poisoning himself.
    Please look closely at foods on top of his locker : there is mayonnaise, coffee, salt, slices of french polony and milk all of which exacerbate risks of a stroke.

  6. Hey docs! Explain the first part of my question.
    Is the patient in his right frame of mind or does the family want CK dead so they can have a go at his ill-acquired property and wealth?
    If indeed the doc or physician called for the evacuation, why are family members playing politics? Are they accomplices to CK’s playing sick? Is CK f(o)oling the Zambians? Amazing scenario.

  7. Ms. Siliya noted that government is responsible to ensure that all Zambians receive quality health care especially those with Mr. Kambwili’s standing.

    This is an admission that in Zambia there is no health care let alone quality care. So to receive quality care you have to be evacuated to anther country and you have to be of Mr Kambwili’s standing. Mr Kambwili’s standing? Kambwili is just a criminal like the rest of you PF- Fools.

  8. Ms. Siliya noted that government is responsible to ensure that all Zambians receive quality health care especially those with Mr. Kambwili’s standing.

    • Zambia = animal farm where some goats are more equal than others.Sorry for you poor folks in Misisi and Chibolya.

  9. The best is not for the government to sweat over the illness or evacuation of Mr Kambwili since the family has kind of made it known that government should not be involved evacuation process of Mr Kambwili. Just my thoughts.

  10. “quality healthcare especially for those with Kambwili’s standing” .So Dorah is simply stating matter of fact that Zambia is an animal farm ?

    Woe unto you poor Misisi and Chibolya residents please don’t get sick coz you are on your own.

  11. I cut and paste from earlier post: I do not know this man but excellent and wise response. Even if one is an MP, it’s not a right that when you I’ll then evacuation to foreign medical facility is guaranteed. Most of these MPs are already rich through corrupt practices. It should not even be a presidential decision because every life is equally important. As such, if it’s a right for MPs and other high flying government officials, then it should also be a right for each and every Zambian. Enough of this unholy abuse of tax payers hard earned money!!

  12. So he will be evacuated for medical attention under police guard or what? This is just so farcical, so ludicrous it is almost like you have a front row seat at a satirical performance!!! While all this is going on please, please improve the public health facilities as a matter of urgency!

  13. Does it mean when you are a politician when you still then it’s called political prosecution? Truth is Kambwili should just answer those charges leveled against them.

  14. Kambwili’s illness and subsequent admission to any hospital has nothing to do with anyone later on PF. He is simply sick like many other people. If his family believe CFB is the best hospital in this instance, so be it because Government has done it’s part of assisting in time of need.
    So if someone feels otherwise, it’s no one’s business. GBM, truly you are dull and blunt in that head of yours. Its not government that recommends what to do about a patient but only makes a decision based such recommendations. Hollow UPDN Under 5s.

    • And to help him to “evacuate”, “humble” and “vise” Endemically Corrupt Leader sends Police in riot gear?

    • I was giving your mama money for condoms and instead she was offering her gluteus maximus and you get born. Respect more your biological father than the rest of your mama one night standers.
      What else to expect from the sh!thole drop-out?

  15. Of the thousands and thousands of Zambians sick in hospital right now, surely there must be one who is sicker than Mr Kambwili and more deserving. So Hon Kabwili is right. Shame on this criminal immoral PF!!

  16. Dont kubeba has failed on Kambwili family. PF has now started feeling the heat. They thought they could hoodwink or buy the Kambwili family with 2 cheap pieces of silver in the form of so called specialist medicine. What a cursed party.

  17. Can someone please enlighten me. How did this Dora Siliya (political?) prostitute find herself in this pf government when she used to insult the great President Sata (MHSRIP), and shamelessly so? Lord have mercy!!!

    • @SILENT OBSERVER.
      THIS WHAT IS SUPRISING TO ME AND MANY PEOPLE.
      IAM HAPPY THAT NOW PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN DORA ANOTHER NAME -ZODWA WAKU PETAUKE.
      THIS WOMAN HAS NO SHAME AND MORALS.
      PF IS FULL OF COWARDS NOW AND NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY THEY EXPELLED CK.
      AS IAM WRITTING THIS,DORA IS A MEMBER OF PF CENTRAL COMMITTE.THE PARTY SHE INSULTED TOGETHER WITH IT’S FOUNDER MCS,MHSRIP.
      SHE USED TO TELL SATA PUBLICKLY THA HE PUTS ON BOMBASA AND SOME WOMEN NGO’S CASTIGATED HER.TODAY SHE IS ENJOYING THE FRUITS OF PF AT THE EXPENSE OF CK AND OTHERS WHO SUFFRERED FOR PF.
      I KNOW IF CK WAS A PF,HE WAS NOT ACCEPT THIS NOSENSE OF ZODWA WAKU PETAUKE TO BE A MEMBER OF CENTRAL COMMITTE.

  18. That’s Emmanuel Mwamba for you, limelight is where he wants to be. Even some tuma small incidences concerning Zambians in SA that do not warrant his comments, he will comment. But it also shows you that these guys have very little work to do. No wonder our economic is dead stuck

  19. WHY WASTE MONEY WHEN EVEN A LOCAL NYANGA CAN CURE CKS ILLNESS – THE MAN IS OVERWEIGHT, THRE IS NO SEPARATION BETWEEN HEAD AND CHEST.

    • No way you cannot trust ba pompwe kuti bakubika carbon monxide you think its oxygen. To hell Dora give your evacuation offer to

  20. Dora is an absolute snob that girl, just how could a cabinet minister utter these Ma rubbish below:
    “Ms. Siliya noted that government is responsible to ensure that all Zambians receive quality health care especially those with Mr. Kambwili’s standing in the country…”

    • They have no respect for taxpayers..its an insult..but only Zambia can a politician utter such animal farm nonsense…abroad you have cadres in Embassies bragging to foreigners that you don’t pay tax in Zambia!!

  21. But Lungu is a loser! If you recall, Maimane refused to meet him in SA, now Kambwili has refused his air ambulance to hell. It’s always the case that someone is hanging on him or telling him to fu.ck off! What a loser we have for a president outsmarted even by Fat Albert!

  22. Mwamba needs to be displined…he runs his own separate GRZ in S.A…this is the second time he has been caught out running ahead of himself and GRZ…the first time was when mumane was deported and he was issuing uncoordinated statements…

  23. Chishimba Kambwili needs to look after his health; looking at him one can easily tell that his body mass index is in total disarray.

  24. Michael Sata left a bunch of useless monkeys managing the affairs of the country..,please lets all start right now looking for someone to take over in 2021…LUNGU IS OUT very useless leader

  25. He is the voice of Kambwili and UPND not “of the people!” What is wrong with UPND cadres? Illusions every time.

  26. Politicians MUST be made to use the health care they have implemented in their own country. Why should a poor man subsidize the health of a richer man? Using a poor taxpayer’s money to pay for a rich man’s medical expanses is stealing from the poor and giving to the rich. The already rich have enough money to pay for their medical expenses. If they don’t then get a loan. They are capable of paying back over time.

  27. Headache and BP to South Africa…..shame without sense of dignity. Can’t you have good Headache hospital in Zambia?

  28. This is the most disjointed and disorganised government on earth .They don’t whether they are coming or going. How the ambassador in South Africa be issuing statements on behalf of government from South Africa ? You guys ought to have your heads examined because you are a big joke and an absolute shambles of a comic government .

  29. The levels of Immaturity in our politicians is quite stupefying. Kambwili wasn’t that sick, he just pulled a stunt otherwise he’s the first patient on life support that I have ever seen with eyes widely open like somebody watching Zodwa. What should worry Edgar is how Kambwili was helped to alarm the nation. Dr Panchall must be investigated for professional misconduct

    • THE PF IS NOT DULL. THEY KNOW THAT CK IS FAKING ILLNESS. BUT IF THAT IS SAID BY ZAMBIAN DOCTORS, THE UPND WILL DISPUTE. BUT IN SA, THE DOCTORS WILL QUICKLY TELL HIM OFF THAT HE IS NOT SICK AND THEY WILL DISCHARGE HIM IMMEDIATELY. THE FAMILY KNOWS THIS. THE SA DOCTORS WILL SPILL THE BEANS ABOUT THIS FAKE ILLNESS.

  30. For me I don’t have a problem whether Kambwili is evacuated or not. My issue is that bore hole tax must go, let’s ensure he leaves. Ayende

  31. Obviously his family thinks you want to go and finish him in SA. It is absurd that you cause the situation by treating unfairly and at the same time you want to help him. Who is Dora trying to f**l really. I really hate this habit by govt of thinking certain individuals deserve better healthcare abroad and not home. Stop spending carelessly and improve those police cells, prisons and hospitals in the country period. I wonder what health insurance these chaps have!

  32. What annoys me about these recycled incompetent politicians is evacuating themselves for medical treatment to South Africa. Why cant they raise UTH to the standards of those south African hospitals and this will cut down this wastage massively.

  33. Who made CK sick in the first place? Was it not the same people who want to pretend to want to evacuate him? You detain a person you know is diabetic and deny them food and medication? Someone clever among them must have told them to stop the nonsense as they risked burning their ever meddling fingers should the unthinkable happen to CK. They now come as typical hypocrites do to pretend as if they are not the cause of CK’s illness with an offer to evacuate him as if they care. God may delay punishment for the wrong doors but it will surely come as a sure harvest after sowing whatever we have sown! It’s unheard of where you want to forcibly move a patient from ICU by force. It is the highest level of evil, injustice and total disregard of the patient’s right to be protected from abuse…

  34. as provided for in the Patient Charter! Those who scheme evil behind the scenes should know that the same injustice awaits them! Every d0g has its day! Sadly we have a Lawyer presiding over such injustice! LPM would have stopped this rot from the beginning! Shame!

  35. Chishimba knows the illness he has so he is in a better position to decide. Politicians are the same. Jacob Zuma’s financial adviser (Shabir) became “ill” after being convicted and jailed for fraud. After serving a few years he applied to be released on medical grounds as soon as he came out of prison he was so fit he could compete in ” Olympic Games”.He was also seen enjoying his “cuban cigars”. Did Kambwili have to wait to be in police cell to become that “sick” that he needed evacuation? Politicians are the same. PF wanted to gain political mileage and their counterpart Chishimba did just that by refusing to be evacuated. If he boasted that he could fly to London for a cup of tea and come back to Zambia does PF think that he (Chishimba) could fail to pay for his medical…

  36. Ba MMD mwatuteka infine. Ba Mwamba ukubilima, …”mpombo wibilima ababilima tabafika”. Kambwili should not die otherwise mukamona epo umunyang’u utota amani.

  37. and i quote “especially those with Mr. Kambwili’s standing in the country”, really?? So if you are a no body the government wont evacuate you.
