NATIONAL Democratic Congress (NDC) president Chishimba Kambwili is not sick and at no time was he rushed to the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) for treatment, party spokesperson Saboi Imboela has said.
Yesterday, social media was awash with reports suggesting that Mr. Kambwili had problems breathing and had to be rushed to the hospital.
But in a statement to The Scoop last evening, Ms. Imboela said whereas he is a known diabetic patient and the prison conditions being dangerous for his health, at no time did such thing as reported in the media happen.
“The president is currently in good health and was never rushed to the hospital at any time as reported on social media. We encourage and thank all the party members, alliance partners, members of the public, and all that have been praying for him to continue to do so.
“We are also grateful and humbled by people calling themselves genuine Patriotic Front (PF) members that have shown their disdain over this matter and wished our president well. Indeed you have shown that injustice has no party lines and that no genuine PF member can celebrate what has happened to our President owing the history that he has with the PF,” Ms. Imboela said.
