Hospitalized Lusambo speaks from his Hospital bed, thanks medics as he recovers from Covid-19

Headlines Hospitalized Lusambo speaks from his Hospital bed, thanks medics as he recovers...

Lusaka Province Minister has sent a passionate message of appreciation to front line health workers treating Covid-19 patients in Zambia.

Mr Lusambo is hospitalized at Levy Mwanawasa Hospital in Lusaka after testing positive for Covid-19 said health workers deserve to be appreciated.

He said the workers who themselves have been in quarantine for several months are sacrificing a lot to save people’s lives.

Mr Lusambo said he is now feeling much better and he is only awaiting final examination before being all clear to leave the Hospital.

He said after interacting with the health workers who are mostly young people, he feels confident that the Zambian health care system is in good hands.

Mr Lusambo thanked Health Minister Dr Chiltalu Chilufya and his team for a well managed COVID-19 response.

He said the number of people recovering from Covid-19 goes to show that Zambia has a world class public health system.

“When I came here (Ward), I was amazed at the reception I received, the health workers are very professional, you would be excused to think that maybe you are just arriving at your house,” Mr Lusambo said.

The Lusaka Province Minister who is also Kabushi Member of Parliament has since proposed that Zambians should consider contributing small amounts to a Basket Fund to be used to pay bonuses or allowances to health workers.

“These health workers deserve more pay, they are working without allowances, just getting their basic salaries but as Zambians, we can contribute even small amounts like K10 to paying bonuses for these front line workers,” he said.

  2. We pray that God’s hands will facilitate the quick recovery of our Hon. Minister Lusambo. It is very rare in Africa for a sitting President to judiciously mentor young promising politicians into leadership roles. Get well soon Ba Lusambo.

  4. This is bad news, please keep him longer at Hospital? Life was so peaceful in this month without that thug Lusambo. Nobody wished Lusambo a quick recovery, except some of us who wished him well, but not so fast. You all can feel it, Lusambo is not needed, Lusaka don’t need a minister.
    I wonder who decided not to offload Lusambo from that bed and offer it to late Rodgers.

  5. Now that you know the kind of work they do, you should advocate for their pay rise and better working conditions. If it was not for COVID-19, this fella would have been receiving treatment outside the country. Now you know the value of investing in a good health system.

  6. Gone are the days when Minsters and MPS would be evacuated to South Africa using tax payer’s money.
    Imagine a drunk Minister breaking his hand in a drunken accident and we fly him to South Africa using PAYE tax.
    Corona has hit them hard. Welcome back Bowman, stop mingling in large crowds.

  7. First, let me wish you Mr. Lusambo a quick recovery. Not many have had the opportunity to receive the first class treatment you are receiving. Mind you don’t fool yourself. Things are not what they seem. You cannot assume that I an ordinary and unknown citizen would receive the same 5-Star reception if taken into care. Needless to mention, by virtue of your elected position and appointment as minister, the service rendered to you will be of highest standards while i the person who voted you into that position will receive if i am at all lucky a mattress on the floor as a ward bed. It hurts me on many ways to hear such ridicule from you about how well the health system is doing. Barely a week now we buried my wife from after being in UTH for 3 weeks. In that period, the doctors did all…

  8. Get well soon Minister Lusambo however I wouldn’t buy into your idea of those “small contributions”. I would support that thought if we had true explanations to the so many corruption accusations labelled against many government officials…meaning, there is NO guaranteed safety in the contributions . All will be looted

  9. Good to speak with you via phone. You will beat this. Sad that majority of upnd and diasporans have been wishing you death. These guys are evil and are only shortening their own lives. You have sacrificed your own health to ensure that people are complying with directives in your province. Thank you. I cannot wait for us to have a recovery drink soon. Kz

    Look who is talking now. This is the dude who was whipping people as a method of preventing COVID-19 virus infections. Instead of being smart, such as observing social distancing, he was being bullish and thuggish… doesn’t work mate.

    As for the donations, sad that it had to take COVID-19 to remind you and open your eyes to the poor working conditions of the majority essential workers including nurses and teachers, among others.

    There have been so much COVID-19 monetary donations from well wishers. The money just ended in your pockets with your fellow PF th!eves. Get even just 1% of the loot and corrupt money and donate to those workers who saved your life. Why soliciting funding from poor Zambians who are already doing it tough?

  17. QUESTION: If these people were following the advice they have been giving including beating up people and arresting members of the opposition how come they themselves are catching Covid? Are they sneaking out under the cover of darkness to carouse? Also notice that ever since the President went to Southern Province the incidence of Covid is increasing algebraically. Meanwhile, donors are not giving the funds they pledged for fear of the money going to Chilufya’s legal bills.

  18. LT what’s happening to your site? It’s slowly evolving into a huge spam site. Please clean up the litter!

    Otherwise, I join everyone wishing bro. Lusambo a quick, complete recovery! Do good and good will follow you.

  19. Good to see that Edgar and Esther are spared the spread of your covid19 ba Lusambo. Tell those two to take care especially as they learn to walk on their own. Especially ka Edgar. Boys have this exposure that sometimes makes them do very daring things. I am sure they can’t wait to see you back with them as they suckle with your efforts…

  20. I’m not sure what Lusambo expected than to get sick after after chasing people around with his stick and otherwise rousing the masses. Typhoid Mary? Try COVID Lusambo. Hello?

    You may get well but I hope learn some humility… or is that just nuts to imagine?

  21. Good that you’re recovering but please try and get some sense in that thick head of yours. It’s just a few days ago that you were galavanting with hordes of cadres on the Copperbelt oblivious of the virus. Yet, mouthing off with your fellow ministers about people not obeying ‘directives’.

  22. Cos if he recovers, he may or may not repent. Or will repent temporary and then he ll forget & become violent again. But if he dies, we are guaranteed of total peace in Lusaka.No doubt abt that.

  23. This pathetic excuse for a minister openly ignored COVID 19 guidelines and put others at risk in Lusaka and the Copperbelt. The MMD cadre and thug got what he deserved.I wish him a slow recovery.

  24. Ala kanshi COVID-19 yalikekata kwitole ka Lusambonyo! Good, I wish you death ka tombolilo iwe, f**k you!

  25. Kaponya was busy brutalising people over covid-19 and yet the sh*t never knew how to take care of his self. I remember someone saying this kaponya is not carrying himself well and would end up exposing himself to the virus. But with this criminals you can never even know if it is true he has it.
