PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has said that it is sad to hear of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s admission to the Intensive Care Unit after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

In a statement released to the media by his Special Assistant for Press Mr. Isaac Chipampe, President Lungu wished Prime Minister Johnson a quick recovery.

“My thoughts are with him, his family and the great people of the United Kingdom,” he said.

The Head of State also extended his thoughts to all those who have lost loved ones from the coronavirus disease and wished a quick recovery to all who are still battling to survive from it.

“The widespread of COVID-19 is unfortunate and we all have to work together to defeat this pandemic by ensuring that our people comply with measures announced by World Health Organisation,” said President Lungu.

Yesterday the British Prime Minister was admitted to the intensive care Unit. According to latest reports, Mr Johnson is “in good spirits” after spending the night in intensive care being treated for coronavirus, and that he was stable overnight and is being given oxygen and is not on a ventilator.

The statement read “The prime minister has been stable overnight and remains in good spirits. He is receiving standard oxygen treatment and is breathing without any other assistance.He has not required mechanical ventilation or non-invasive respiratory support.”

  5. Boris is not really sick.. just some PR propaganda to stay out the firing line for his mismanagement of the Covid-19 outbreak and at the same time get public sympathy. He will be fine and discharged by Thursday and back to his day job as PM very soon. The masses are being played and manipulated like sheep they are. We the enlightened ones know what is really going on. This was just a reset button for the world, China was getting too powerful and would have started world war three with its aggressive activities in the South China sea. In a few weeks or months they’ll recommend an affective treatment and would have discovered a vaccine. It will be all over and we’ll get back to our normal lives but Chinese rise and dominance as an economic superpower would have come to a halt. Many…

  6. Kwantamu you are a Zambian hero!!! You are doing what a responsible government should be doing for the vulnerable. EXAMPLE: Officials in Uganda have donated food to 1.5 million vulnerable people living in the metropolitan area of Kampala during the lockdown.THE government of Namibia has committed N$562 million as an emergency income grant to support households that have lost incomes as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.South African Government has R96 million to assist individuals and families. Malawi was one of the last countries to record cases of coronavirus … Malawi’s president and all government ministers are taking a 10% pay cut for three months to raise money to tackle the coronavirus outbreak.
    President Peter Mutharika made the announcement as he set out a stimulus package to…

  8. Kaizer Zulu you dont worry when your own African brothers get sick in Zambia or any other African country….a Muzungu who is receiving the best medical care gets sick and you cant even eat…crying all day….show love to everyone starting with your fellow Africans

  9. You cannot say anything against Muzungu to a house negro like Kaizer Zulu…he will lynch you..am not surprised easterners are known to be house negros…they worship Indians in Chipata and they work very hard and are very loyal to Indians but when they work for a fellow Black African they steal from him

  10. Immediately I see President Lungu says or orders, I expect that the words, ‘according to his Facebook post’ or ‘this was in a statement released by the Special assistant for Press and PR’.

  11. Anonymous you are embarrassing yourself and your comments are a clear sign that you left Zambia many years ago. Muna taba during colonial imwe. The only house n.egros, as you put it, are those in diaspora who continue to live there even when the British tell them that they don’t want immigrants. The Same ones who continue to live there when bananas are thrown at them. The same ones who adamantly remain there when the only jobs they can easily get are toilet cleaners and other mundane tasks. There is no such thing as a house negro in Zambia . Here we are in majority and running our own country unlike you there a minority sausage. The office of president will and must send its wishes to fellow statesmen. Don’t be a punk. Kz

  14. ITS ONE WAY OF TELLING AFRICAN LEADERS TO STICK TO THEIR MEDICAL FACILITIES AND IMPROVE THE STANDARDS OF OUR HOSPITALS. TODAY IF ANY MINISTER WAS SICK ( GOD FORBID) OF ANY KIND OF ILLNESS APART FROM COVID -19, YOU WILL BE TREATED RIGHT HERE IN ZAMBIA AND NO ONE WILL BE FLOWN OFF TO SOME COUNTRIES AS IT USED TO BE IN THE PAST.

  15. One good thing this virus has brought is that it has made the president, his family and all ministers remain here in Zambia holed up in their houses instead of gallivanting all over the world using taxpayers money. You can see e cant even be seen in public.

  16. Some body has created a parody of Mr. Bean’s Judo clip. Zambia is depicted as Mr. Bean in this. It is hilarious but tells the true picture on the ground.

  17. Really laughable where is that moron Edgar wearing a face mask? In his office? They have seen that covid-19 doesnt discriminate social status after Boris is sick the despots are in deep fear plus no flights to RSA ..he will have to go to UTH like everyone.
    He is quick to send messages to UK but can not reassure his own people…that last message he sent was shamelessly depressing. Lazy Lungu might as well be in ICU because he does nothing…good thing flights are grounded worldwide.

  18. @Kaizar Zulu….we are here in the diaspora just because of quality of life..stop stealing and wasting taxpayers money and lets develop Zambia…Toilet cleaners are a treasure in the Western world in case you dont know…a Janitor in the UK or USA makes more money than a Zambian Minister(only stealing)….but without theft a Janitor lives a much more comfortable life..am a Janitor myself and i can send you a copy of my pay check

  19. It is a good thing for the President to actually give good thoughts to Boris Johnson. It is not political neither is it a form of patronage but a good gesture in a time of world wide crisis. If another head of state was affected or infected, other Presidents including our own would give solidarity.

  20. Anonymous – C’mon …Why do you waste your energy urging with an impostor who is based in the UK shamelessly pretending to be Zambia so he can masqueraded as Kz of all chaps …really laughable…I guess everyone is looked up by someone. The chap’s posts are all disjointed as he has no principles tomorrow he will be updating us about UK local news the next he will swearing at UK and British people.

  21. @Tarino Orange, zoona?!? Leave him be. He is doing a good job at getting rid of the PF. Most of the people on this forum have changed their mindset on the ruling party after reading his arrogant comments. He is not doing them a favour at all. Kudos to you, KZ!

  22. Nilibe ma bundles.. – That’s why he is doing it …who do you think ‘N3z the coon’ was supporting on LT?Only dumb PF cadre like @Zambian Citizen think he is a colleague. This impostor is a simpleton hence lacks creativity but he has too much time on his hands.

  23. This is very embarrassing coming from a PF government official but I will do you and the Zambians a favour for preaching hate and demeaning the crown. I will report you to the British government that you will no longer touch the English, Irish, Welsh and Scottish land. You are an embarrassment to President Lungu and Zambian people. You do not deserve to work for GRZ.

    President Lungu need to term you.

  24. “President Lungu wishes British Prime Minister quick recovery”-LT

    How can you justify this and trust this kind of leadership beyond me; ”to be too difficult for someone to understand or deal with. The system was unusually complicated and completely beyond the new trainees.” It’s beyond me why/how/what: It’s beyond me why anyone should want to be Governed by this current PF administration.

  25. For me, I am still looking for pastors who do ‘healing’, isn’t it the time to go and remove the 33 that are still positive. As you wish Boris a quick recovery this is what you should be focusing on, get our pastors to perform, this is their time, not so?

  26. “President Lungu wishes British Prime Minister quick recovery.”LT

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson
    “You may keep secrets from your friends, from your parents, your children, your doctor – even your personal trainer – but it takes real effort to conceal your thoughts from Google.”- Boris Johnson

    Just messing with moron Kaizer Zulu…i know he is in the Diaspora also otherwise he cant afford bundles if he was in Zambia

  28. What an ignorant f.ool this KZ impersonator is. Continuing with backward sentiments and unable to understand the global world. Don’t mislead others to turn against hard working noble people in the diaspora. All work is respected as it should. In Zambia do you use toilets without needing anyone to clean them? By the way, there are thousands of diaspora people saving lives all over the world, including Zambian doctors and nurses. Anyone is free to sell their labour anywhere in the world or live where they choose. They are also free to criticise any injustice wherever it may rear it’s ugly head. Your stup.idity knows no bounds and is really primitive.

  29. The words, “You need a leader in times of crisis” have been mentioned a number of times in some jurisdictions. You also need transparency and honesty in whatever is going on. Where is ECL’s leadership and visibility? Where is the honesty about his whereabouts? Why is he still issuing statements through others?

  30. Haha I can see I have hurt a few opposition diasporan village pigs. As the saying goes the truth hurts. So hurt that you cannot respond to me and only thing you can do is allege I am fake. You have been used to using this platform to spread your anti government hate and rhetoric without anyone putting you in check. We are now following all social media outlets and are engaging with them. We are not leaving any stone unturned. Continue thinking I am fake while we continue to gain support and set the record straight . Muza kamba muzalema. Contact me via Facebook if you want. Kaizar zulu.

  31. Funso – The Pastors who perform healing sessions only do it for patients with non-communicable diseases!!!! They have all gone underground because they cannot get close to a Coronavirus patient, same with Ebola – kikikiki!!! And then somebody (especially women) empty pockets for them.

  32. The president just wished the prime minister a quick recovery. which is very good, let us stop acting as though he donated a large amount of money to the British prime minister, It’s just a wish nothing political about it, lets just focus on our country now and try to be creative.
