    • For the past 30yrs only non medical Ministers have performed well at that Ministry and those are Michael Sata and Katele Kalumba. The biggest disasters are Nkandu Luo and Chitalu Chilufya. The nation hasn’t benefited from their medical background. Nkandu would even go into wards at night to quarrel with nurses and her sister Chewe behaved like she was the only professional! Cursed people

  1. flag “A storyteller makes up things to help other people; a liar makes up things to help himself.”

    Coronavirus reports are inaccurate. Just ask the taxi drivers driving around sick people all over the place. It’s the talk on everyone’s mouth

  2. If this man “was reported to have gone to the hospital ill and was later pronounced dead” just factor in people around the country outside Lusaka that are dying like him with minimum symptoms… Chilufya’s data is flawed and he is taking covid-19 for granted …sack this man immediately for the sake of public health instead of fattening PF treasury..

  3. Let’s face this is not the 70,000 deaths the US is experiencing so there is no crisis here. 4 is nothing compared to deaths from other diseases like malaria.

    Obviously Bally will fix it will tell you that the sky will be falling tomorrow just to inflate his own ego and his Diaspora supporters and hope he will be in power next year.

    The truth is PF will be in power and some of us will look at multiplying our wealthy 20-folds and maybe retire and pass the button to our close friends and relatives while you continue singing corruption and integrity. No one eats integrity and I can assure you that even if it was Bally he was going to steal even more than you think we are currently doing. Some of us are born to be rich… unfortunately in life there’s always going to be poor people…

    • This guy is not okay. how can any normal person say 4 deaths is nothing. Even one death is not admissible, one death is equal to 70,000 deaths. Stop your daily funny jokes here

  4. Lungu should fire Chilufya..this fake thieving doctor is a shame to the medical profession….useless makaka and whats the point of wearing a mask when your ugly mouth and nose is exposed…in the USA its called COV*****….he is an *****..millions of dollars have been pumped into Zambia to fight COVID and a young technician is put on a bus to pay K66 bus fare….this is broad day light robbery

  5. Is he still a minister!? What a shame in Edgar Lungu’s government! If it was Kaunda or Mwanawasa, this man would be crying inside his closet by now. He is one of the most arrogant and inept Health Minister in Zambia. I wonder whether Edgar Lungu has guts or he is just a rubber stamp of a president! Meanwhile PF must go!

  6. I have realized that Chilufya Chitalu is too defensive and he doesn’t accept that he is wrong or his ministry is faultless. Almost every Corona virus dead patients have secondary diseases and whether having secondary ailment or not but it must be emphasized that the cause of death is corona virus simple as that. The cause of death must be straight forward corona virus. Edgar Lungu us afraid ti fire Chilufya Chitalu he fears he will decampaign him in Luapula. Meanwhile PF must go!

  7. My clone aka tarino above, I would suggest that you don’t write long blogs. People can tell that you trying too hard. Back to the article, I am sure the diasporans are thinking that their prayers for death have been answered. They have been desperate for a death to occur and have prayed all day and night. However, we will ensure to fight these demons. Sadly a life has been lost but in memory of the departed we will continue to fight this virus with determination and hard work. Our ministry and government is doing very well considering the circumstances. The developed world have had over 100 thousand deaths. Sadly we have incurred 4. We say don’t give up the fight . We are not only fighting are a lethal virus but also the demons in diaspora. Kz

  9. All those disputing the figures give us then the correct data. We can’t see the deaths as in other parts of the world outside Africa but which are those are you trying to vindicate that Zambia has many deaths? Tell us because your argument doesn’t make sense

  11. With this Chitalu Chilufya of yours, there maybe more corona virus related deaths in Zambia but he has put a blanket on the Zambians not to know. So if you still believe what comes from him as a gospel truth, you a fool. This man nust be fired finito and klaar!

  12. Tarino, you know that you are trying hard to impersonate me because you and your kind have failed to debate me. How come your name comes straight after my clone above? You son of a gun demon, I’m rich and you remain poor. Change your name from Hazaluza Hagain to Musonda and come join the winning team and maybe we can give you a job to mop our party headquarters. We will pay you (ala nchekeleko) more than hourly rate you get for wiping old people’s bum in the Diaspora. I’m rich and I won’t stop waving it in your face! Call it corruption but I really don’t care.

  13. Quote:Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya says this involves a known chronic patient, who had cancer of the colon, which had spread to the rest of the body and had a history of Tuberculosis and pneumonia.

    THE REMINDS ME OF ZAMBIAN UNCLES AT BURIAL SITES HOW THEY STRUGGLE TO EXPLAIN WHAT DISEASE THEIR NEPHEW HAS DIED FROM, YOU ALL KNOW THAT DISEASE AM TALKING ABOUT.

  14. Sad to hear about the death. Looking at the co-morbidities of the patient, however, recovery would have been a miracle. If the recovery rate continues to be higher than the active cases, we certainly still have a good chance of averting a catastrophe.

  15. Aristotle – Here its a case of not struggling to explain but everything is laced with lies …he can say anything get away with the truth….calling it mass screening or community screening.

  16. Personally, I would like to see an end to all these multiple posts under one name. This site is for information and constructive debate, not a platform for monologue or vitriolic conversations. LT must take disciplinary action asap.

  17. Nine Chale, you are a man of wisdom and I agree with you 100%. The UPND demons have completely failed to debate you and I are resorting to desperate measures of impersonating me. They will fall as it is to tell fakes from real.

    Personally their unsubstantiated accusations of corruption is too much and instead of bothering to deny it and trying in vain to reason with them, I will just admit it and rub my riches in their faces (this will be my approach moving forward and will see how they react to that).

  18. Tarino my new clone has a UK flag and I can tell from the sentence structure Haha. The problem is that you are over doing it. If you are going to clone me then at least take time to study how I actually blog. Try shorter sentences that are analytical and well thought out. I expect a lot more from you than this substandard blogging. If you going to use my name then do it right. Kz

  19. What scientific test based evidence do taxi drivers have about the cases of COVID-19 everyone talks about?

  20. hi guys, in light of my popularity and the growing number of fake accounts, my team are trialing a new photo system which can not be copied. let me know your thoughts. KZ

  21. As you would have noticed, I have recently had a number of people copying my profile here due to my increasing popularity. As such, my public relations team are trialing a profile picture which will be unique and has never been used before. Please tell me what your thoughts are on my new picture. Kz

  22. I seriously think LT needs to deal with the glaring id.iots on this blog. It has clearly been hijacked from it’s initial premise that thrived on more constructive debates and disagreements than the diatribes that are flourishing insanely now. I think all right thinking bloggers know whom I am referring to.

  23. Harold Muna, have some balls and name who you are talking about. You don’t control what people say and that is the problem with you UPND cretins. You have met your match in me and I’m not afraid to tell it like it is. I’m equally not afraid to rub my wealthy in your face so you can choke on your envy. Kz

  24. My boss told me recently: ‘Kaizar if you want I can make you my running mate and my VP at next year’s elections’. I said no boss, that will make us look like the tribal party of Bally. I’m content with where I am. I will continue to offer you good advice in the background. But what do my fans here think? Edgar/Kaizar on the winning ticket?

  25. Yet another preventable death attributable to Lungu’s misguided governance.Healthcare system is shambolic and underfunded..

  26. Is this real Kaizer Zulu who is able to respond to every comment someone posts? Fake kaizer.

  27. The dead ( convid19 or not) have rights from medical ethics point of view.These details of their chronic conditions that are being revealed at briefings c are a manifestation of professional misconduct. We have no way of knowing where convid is taking us and nobody knows who will go next.Observe the medical ethics and preserve the dignity of the deceased please twapapata. There is no justifiable death at all even with convid19

  28. It Is Increasingly Becoming Risk For Us To Sell Edgar Lungu As Our Candidate, Reveals Kampyongo
    Defense minister Davies Chama with his Home Affairs counterpart Stephen Kampyongo during a joint press briefing in Lusaka .
    Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo on Friday evening was heard telling a few of his cabinet colleagues that it was increasingly becoming difficult for the PF to sell President Edgar Lungu as the candidate for 2021.
    Kampyongo was on Friday evening having some beers with Justice Minister Given Lubinda, Livestock Minister Kampamba Mulenga, Higher Education Minister Nkandu Luo, Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya and three other unidentified officials at Roan and Sable in Kabulonga area.
