Lusaka Province minister Mr. Bowman Lusambo yesterday recounted his time in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Levy Mwanawasa Teaching Hospital where he was battling COVID-19, warning that the disease is real and people must not take it as a joke.

Mr Lusambo, the Lusaka Province minister and Kabushi PF member of parliament who is expected to return to work today, further narrated that while he was being treated in ICU, the patient who was next to him died.

He said COVID-19 is capable of killing within a short period of time and advised Zambians to take it seriously as it is a disease that one can smile at.

Mr Lusambo said this yesterday’s during the daily COVID-19 briefing in Lusaka where he gave an account of his experience as a Coronavirus survivor after spending more than seven days.

“My experience at Levy Mwanawasa, COVID-19 is real, people are dying. At the time I was in ICU, the patient who was next to me died the following morning. I want to urge the people out there that COVID-19 is not a disease which we can play with, tebulwele bwaku chenselako ameno iyo. COVID-19 bubwele ubwingakwipaya within the shortest period of time,” Mr Lusambo said.

“As I go for work tomorrow, the business on the table will be how do we protect the people of Lusaka from COVID-19 with a multi sectoral team? And I can assure you that as a Province, we are not going to leave any stone unturned because it’s cheaper to prevent and it’s very expensive to treat COVID-19 patients.”

And Kantanshi Member of Parliament Dr Anthony C.Mumba has recovered from COVID-19 after being put on a ventilator.

” Today 9th August 2020 I have woken up giving praises to Jehovah God for seeing me through my Covid-19 sickness. I cannot believe that I had to be connected to the Oxyginator to support the flow of Oxygen 24- 7,” the MP wrote

“To you my collegues in kantanshi….Covid-19 is real please Mask Up and Stay Safe. Let me thank my Mother Juliet for her prayers my elder brother MJ Mumba for the various interventions my wife and kids for being there for me as well as my other syblings…my friends thanks for showing me love at a time I was totally incapacitated”

“To Kantanshi Constituency your phone calls, prayers and love saw me through. I love you All. To Jehovah God this has been a tough year for me from a Road Accident that almost took my life in Feb this year to being on Oxygen Support”

“Thank you for keeping me God and I believe it is for a purpose. I will continue to work for the People of Kantanshi…..
Kantanshi am back in the field in the next 7 days…..may God continue to Bless You Even More.”

  2. It seems some patients are more important than others in this govt like this lump of cow dung MMD turncoat Bowman that places like Levy Hospital have a VIP ward for covid patients…General wards do not have access to ventilators like these PF morons. This is a govt of selfish thieves who are now instant billionaires who think K2 million is simple shopping change when this chap was living in a one room shack 5 years ago now he is awash with Chinese money at the expense of poor substandard inflated infrastructure projects. Bowman only your silly coward of a boss missed your absence who has turned PF into MMD part 2.

    • My brother we were even better off in the MMD. There was much more money in our pockets. But these vampires just think about themselves. I regret voting out the MMD

  3. No serious development in Kabushi constituency, just donations which don’t last a week. Development can never be hand outs on any given day please. Do handouts sort out the huge unemployment levels in the constituency? Start working on real developmental issues that will enhance peoples lives and not this cosmetic gymnastic

  4. Mr lusambo you have recovered
    From corvid19 only to pick on the
    Kaunda family.You should feel lucky to have survived. Let what
    You own not make you look down
    On others.

  5. Glad that you recovered Honourable Lusambo. God is good indeed!! This virus is lethal, those that want to live will adhere to the restrictions, those that are ready to check out from this earth will ignore the restrictions. At this point it becomes a choice for anyone of legal age honestly.

Thanks to Jehovah for not answering the evil wishes and prayers of diasporans who wanted you dead. I know the lord has sent those wishes and prayers back to sender. Vizafa vonse.
