Chief Mukuni thanks the government Evacuating him to India for medical care

Share

SENIOR Chief Mukuni has thanked the government for facilitating his movements and health expenses to India where he was evacuated to.

The chief, who did not disclose the ailment, said this when Vice President Mutale Nalumango paid a courtesy call at his palace.

The chief fell sick in January and was admitted to Maina Soko Hospital in Lusaka before he was evacuated to India.

And Ms Nalumango has said the UPND has walked the talk during the short time it has been in power.

Ms Nalumango said the government is implementing and fulfilling its campaign promises.

“I am lost for words to visit you because this is a special palace to us. We are coming here to see how you are doing because we believe in the role that you play as royal highnesses and you in particular,” she said.

“We are happy with the interest that you have showed to develop our nation

Because of that we are here and all the time we need your input because you are a reservoir of knowledge in this country and you are capable to do that,” she said.

  3. So evacuation of elites has not ended, or did it end with PF and this is now the new dawn of evacuations and Chief Mukuni is the first beneficiary under the new dawn evacuations.

    KK may his rest in peace, never ever evacuated and treated in hospitals he built and died in the hospital he built at a yonger tender age of 96 while all the others who were evacuated died a ta todler age of whatever

    Medical evacuations are back

  4. Madam Vice-President I cannot agree with you that “You have walked the talk”, in fulfilling your campaign promises. Speed up the process of implementing the promises you made prior to the elections. The New Dawn Government seems to be good at talking and making many pronouncements, but on practical aspect minimal results. Anyway, you still have 5 years to prove yourselves.

  5. It’s just shameful that the health facilities are clearly not up to scratch that evacuation is necessary

  6. I hear Chief Mukuni has moved to Lusaka now…anyway this Chief and his family especially wife scarificed a lot to have the brutal regime of Lazy Lungu kicked out when other chiefs wer licking boots of Lungu.

  8. Evacuations of anyone should cease. We must build World class hospitals right here in Zambia. We have excessive and highly qualified doctors produced by our own efforts in Zambia and we are not utilising them. Give these medical personnel the equipment and there wont be any need to send anyone to South Africa or India. UPND stop behaving like UNIP, MMD and PF

  10. Can we evacuate all patients at UTH? While we the stepping mats have no medicine in hospitals, some can even afford to go into space for special treatment. Animal Farm.

  11. It was difficult for HH to see his friend dying. This chief was with the president for a long period of time. HH arrested 127 days and Chief Mukuni could intimidate the govt machinery of Mr. Lungu and Kampyongo.
    Today he is suffering from a sensitive sickness and you want HH to leave him. Lets wait and see what the government will do when another chief will be sick. Then will open up for criticism.

  12. Kikikiki looks like he is going horse riding. Same chief was sleeping at the grave yard for the so called supernatural powers. He gets sick , instead of going to the grave yard to get healed, he is flown to India. Chalo ichi!

  13. Some tribal begot has nothing to say except tribal inclined views. However, that will not shorten the long, long period UPND and HH will be in power and continue to correct, clean the mess left by PF and ECL. Zambian people rejected PF rule in August 2021 and continued to reject as evidenced by Kabwata by elections on 3rd Feb 2021. 5 years plus is a long, long way bitterness will choke you to death, just give it-up, begin to be realistic and provide better checks and balance to the good governance of UPND.
