Missing Zambian leader worries party supporters ahead of tough elections

14 June 2016, 16:16

Lusaka - Zambia’s ruling Patriotic Front (PF) party supporters are allegedly worried about the absence of President Edgar Lungu from campaign rallies, amid reports that he was not well and had been taken to South Africa for treatment, a report said on Tuesday.

According to The Post, party supporters expressed their fears over the missing president, as he was expected to be campaigning for the August 11 presidential elections.

Lungu reportedly last went on a campaign rally on June 4.

Reports on social media claimed that Lungu had postponed attending ruling PF rallies as he was not well and had flown to South Africa for treatment.

However, PF secretary general Davies Chama denied the reports, saying that the president was in good health.

According to Tumfweko, Chama said that party supporters were going to be told about the president’s next rallies, adding that the reports of the president being taken to SA for treatment were the works of criminals.

Last year, Lungu was admitted to a South African hospital where he underwent a surgery to correct the narrowing of his oesophagus, News24 reported.
