State Evacuates Ailing Lupando

The state has ordered the evacuation of Former Vice President Lupando Mwape to South Africa for specialist treatment.

Mwape has been admitted at the University Teaching Hospital for weeks.

The evacuation of Mwape comes a few days after another top government official Mike Mulongoti was evacuated to South Africa for specialist treatment.

Acting President Inonge Wina authorised the evacuation of Mwape to South Africa for specialist treatment.

Mwape, who has been in admission in the University Teaching Hospital for the last nine days, will be flown to South Africa this morning (Thursday).

Speaking from his hospital bed, Lupando thanked His Excellency Edgar Lungu, President of the Republic of Zambia and Wina for the love and care showed to him.

      Very encouraging comment thanks for promoting unit. This is what we need in this new year to forgive and forget, spirit of reconciliation and love and care. If tax money can be used to serve life I see no wrong in that as a tax payer am excited my money is serving lives. Bravo GRZ

    This issue of evacuating people at the repense of Tax payers is very saddening. Dont we have qualified doctors ??? Cant we upgrade our own Hospitals ???

    Perhaps the government need’s to focus on up grading facilities the we already have here in Zambia, so they stop flying sick retired politicians to RSA, starting with the hospitals clinics, police station, as for medical personnel we have very good & qualified medical personnel right here in Zambia & medicla equipment too,so this evacuation of high profile politicians out of the country for medical reasons is not on, Zambians please let’s put our tax payers money to good use,help the needy orphans, mother’s & children who go for days with out food,warm blankets, clean drinking water,we are all very alive these devastating living conditions of the vulnerable poor mother’s, children, orphans, this has to stop , Tax payers let us please speak out & see to it that the taxes we pay are being put to good use..😩😩

      Ba Kimenge Specialist treatment is inevitable at certain stage!! Travel around the world and you will understand why such commendable step has been taken!! Set up a specialized hospital yourself for any single ailment!! We will applaud you!!!

  15. Edward elesani

    Where did these guys take their monies? remember they once worked in top government positions & I don’t think they can fail to pay for themselves for those specialist treatments anywhere in the world.

  16. Willi

    Good act! But my contention is that we spend a lot of tax money to train doctors, so don’t we have confidence in them?. Or are they only trained to treat the lowly and poor and not government connected? Why not invest in state of the art facilities other than spending huge sums of money on medical tourism? Its a negative on our own personnel and facilities…

    Quick recovery form vice

    Comment This is what leadership is all about. Good leadership does not segregate. It treats every member of society, community, as an equal person. I salute the leadership of the of government. May it be granted more blessings, protection, and wisdom Amen.

  19. zemo

    why can’t they just evacuate the entire UTH coz there are some patients who have been there for months & very ill yet few retired policiantions are been taken care of at the expenses of the poor shame

  20. Stephen

    So for how long should this trend continue? 50+ years of independence we still don’t have a hospital for these crooked politicians? This is shocking, all these who have served in government or still serving this nation do they forget that one day they will fall ill and will seek medical attention? Why should this nation continue evacuating politicians who have failed us? Can these people in office now ensure we upgrade one hospital in each province to suit or fit them since they are special than any Zambian and to survive they will need oxygen from a foreign nation leaving that poor needled (with needles) boy at UTH. Zambian Yama Ch**ese
    Shame bonse

    Am for red family upnd. But am happy to hear that government has helped two leaders for their health problems. Even though that money is ours or citizens of Zambia. I wish them to get well soon.

  22. Collins mulenga

    Thank you patriotic front and the government of Zambia for such care and may the hand of mighty God touch you Honourable Lupando Mwape and be healed in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

    Are they government top officials or you don’t know what you are suppose to write?

  27. Zikomo

    Any step to immediately save life is commendable. Differentiate politicking time from life saving time. God bless you My President and Vice President.

  28. Matman.

    Welcome move even as we are seeing those much sought out for services coming in the near future. We are already seeing such services like dividing Siamese twins etc. But your reporting us a little bit misleading. In one paragraph you say he has been in hospital for weeks and then you mention that it’s nine days.

  29. Tefyo

    Who writes these articles ¿? I find it very strange the first paragraph of the article says he has been in hospital for weeks and as you read it says 9days mmmmmmm, secondly this article is saying mr lupando is the second government official to be evacuated, tell me one thing are mulongoti and lupando government officials or not……

  30. Leader

    All those who are saying it’s a good thing they are very foolish idiots these guy tubena mulongoti kalupando they chewed a lot of tax payers money. Now that to they are broke ati evacuation for specialist treatment atase. Why worsting money on same people who have failed us.. Shame on the government.

  31. Larfonty kandela

    That is what it should be, we may differ politically, but we are one people

  32. Ks

    Let us all recover or die

  33. Jazz

    It is not fair for others to be flawn to RSA using

  34. Jazz

    Will should we be taxed and then if we call sick we have to seek medical solution by ourselves when others that have the resources and living luxurious lives use our tax which we pay to treated abroad. FACT

  35. Bishopric

    Only the venerable patients need medical aid by government using our tax. otherwise equality must prevail. President make sure you diatribe national cake equally. !

    Rest in peace Former Zambian vice president
