Betty Mulongoti thanks President Edgar Lungu for evacuating her Husband

Pretoria- Monday 14th January 2018

Spouse to People’s Party President Mike Mulongoti, Mrs. Betty Mulongoti has expressed profound gratitude to President Edgar Lungu for evacuating her husband to receive specialized medical treatment.

She said the quick action by President Lungu  to evacuate Mr. Mulongoti will save his life.

She said that Mr. Mulongoti was admitted to the University Teaching Hospital(UTH) for two weeks and his condition was deteriorating as special medical tests that were being done were being sent to South Africa for analysis.

She said doctors in South Africs had assured her that they have began the process of tests and treatment.

And Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, His Excellency Mr. Emmanuel Mwamba said tremendous efforts have been made to invest in the health sector in Zambia.

He said the Ministry of Health had continued to invest in laboratory, diagnosis and specialized medical equipment, factors that usually cause foreign medical evacuations.

He said Zambia had qualified medical personel running hospitals all over the world hence the decision to invest in gaps that caused  foreign access to treatment.

He said in the long term, Zambia would achieve regional and  world class standards at the pace of investment being done to the Health Sector.

He said this when he visited Mr. Mulongoti at the hospital.

President Lungu last week directed that People’s Party president Mr. Mike Mulongoti, be evacuated to South Africa for specialised medical treatment.

Mr. Mulongoti is admitted to Avrwyp Medical Center in Johannesburg.

He was brought by an air ambulance on Sunday morning.

      Mulongoti has been evacuated on tax payer’s money you idiot why insult HH does he owe you

      • Wise me

        There’s nothing more idiotic than to insult people who challenge a leader’s attitude. If you want to rule Zambia learn to be humble while you are aspiring. UPND cadres should not be painting a gloomy future about the type of leadership our country should God permit.

    FDD join the rest in thanking the head of state for a good statesmanship practice of helping national leaders who have served this country like president Mulongoti. And urge the president to extend this gesture to ordinary Zambians in need of similar help.

    In as much as I love lungu, I think it’s a wast of resources coz these people where in government but didn’t improve health facility to the standard hence they shud be subjected to the same facilities moreover we have kid who are future leaders of this country who are in these poor health facilities

    • Biloko

      How does he justify his own medication abroad if once a while he does not sponsor some useful opposition leader abroad. Solution is to improve our own hospital not these knee-jerk reactions.

    See what happens in US,Democrats are not in white house but contribute funding to developmentle projects unlike the boarder wall which they have refused to contribute they feel it is waist of resources and will just affect the economy. Same applies to our opposition parties let them be contributing even financially in some of these programs than just keep on promising things to do once they form gorverment .Batiila ichikwanka bachimwena kumampalanya.this system of critisysing for the sack of it can’t help us.
