Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya says Government is not aware of a mysterious disease commonly referred to as Kula Mutwe causing severe headaches in Kalabo District which is said to have claimed lives.

Dr. Chilufya told Parliament this morning that Kalabo District has no documented deaths associated with a disease called kula mutwe.

He was responding to Kalabo Central Member of Parliament Chinga Miyutu who wanted to know if government was aware that a mysterious disease commonly known as Kula mutwe had broken out in Kalabo District.

Mr. Miyutu also wanted to know what government was doing to contain the disease.

Dr. Chilufya said from the descriptions provided for Kula Mutwe, a wide variety of infectious and non-infectious conditions may present with severe headaches and these include cerebral Malaria and Meningitis among others.

He said the two patients who presented the symptoms of headache died due to cerebral vascular accidents and not kula mutwe as reported in some sections of society.

And Dr. Chilufya said not necessarily in response to the Kula Mutwe disease, government has put in place active surveillance and Public health emergency information systems that detect, report and investigate disease outbreaks to maintain public health security.

  1. “Cerebra Vacsular Accidents” is it Doctor’s negligence that people died or that’s the name of the disease. The Minister doesn’t seem concerned that people died. He has a big head too. He maybe suffering from Kula Mutwe!

    • Did you just call that out to your mother and your sister? That will be very good if the UN would receive a letter on Prof. HANSONI University Letterhead. The UN will act prudently. That is very bad little boy.
