Information and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary Chanda Kasolo has said that Republican Vice President Inonge Wina is not due for work until next week, despite having come back from India where she had gone for her annual medical review.

In explaining her absence from Parliament this Friday, Mr Chanda said that that media reports suggesting that she is unwell a day before her arrival were therefore mere lies and annoying to government and the Vice President herself, adding that the Vice President was ready to resume work.

Mr Chanda said that anyone that saw her on national television on Thursday can tell that the Vice President is in fact well and fit.

This week Vice President Inonge Wina arrived back in the country after being in in India for a medical check-up.

Mrs. Wina was received by Permanent Secretary in the office of the vice President Stephen Mwansa.

And in an interview with ZNBC News, Mr. Mwansa said the vice president was ready for work.

    • She went for a medical check up in India? Am I reading this right? Are you telling me that Zambian UNZA graduate MD’s are that useless that they can’t even conduct a simple medical check up?

    • Mr Legendary and you even manage to get some thumbs up ??? It’s shocking to say the least that the VP goes to India for a ‘regular’ checkup??? And also check your facts …..Kasolo recently issued a statement that she also underwent a minor operation…. No ordinary checkup requires any kind of operation. This nonsense needs to end where all the top leaders have the luxury to go for medical services outside the country and you leave us to grapple with the very health system u are supposed to improve…and some misguided caders here gives it a thumbs up and think its the way to go?

    • Shameless lies, lies lies…who goes for medical check up for almost a month at taxpayers expense in India …then takes a further two weeks off…Politicians in Zambia have become so out of touch with reality. Anyway Death Certificates dont lie….this old hen needs to be retired to pasture.

  3. “Mr Chanda said that anyone that saw her on national television on Thursday can tell that the Vice President is in fact well and fit.”

    Then why did she go all the way to India for her review? Next time just let her appear on TV since that is how anyone can tell if someone is “well and fit” – they could even look at her from India without the cost a ticket! Honestly, how dumb do they think we are?

    • Kekekekeke! Anyone who saw her. Anyone including Doctors ka? So the doctors should have just seen her on satellite TV from New Delhi and signed off.
      Your suggestions are much brainier than this unreasoning government spokesperson
      Ba Kasolo I think most people didn’t see her on TV. Because they were watching more important programs like Lusaka hustler

  7. Why can’t we have Inonge’s dodgy knees done up in Zambia . These thugs have stolen enough and can afford to do it using their bank accounts . All this medical tourism done on tax payers account should stop. How many people in Zambia have dodgy knees and dodgy throats like Inonge and Lungu but cannot get treatment because Lungu doesn’t care about improving our health system. All he cares about is jumping on a plane making aimless trips to countries that do not even care about Zambia .

  8. “…….Vice President Inonge Wina arrived back in the country……
    Mrs. Wina was received by Permanent Secretary in the office of the vice President Stephen Mwansa…”.

    Received by her PS only? Not a horde of lawless party cadre idyots disturbing the traffic? This makes my day, that there are such leaders in Zambia who can serve without being god-ified.
    If she stood for President today, she would get my vote.
