16 July 2014, 14:25
Lusaka - Zambia released photographs of President Michael Sata chairing a cabinet meeting this week, allaying speculation that the 77-year-old leader was critically ill.
An Israeli official recently said Sata was receiving medical treatment in Israel but did not give details on his condition.
Sata's spokesperson e-mailed the photographs to the press.
Sata also posted the photographs and a statement on his Facebook page.
His previous post had been five weeks ago, fuelling talk of his ill-health because the page was updated at least once a week before then.
Sata suffered a heart attack in 2008.
