Tayali challenges Lungu on his illness

Filed under: Statements |

ed manPatriotic Front President Edgar Lungu has been advised to satisfactorily put to an end the continued speculation about his health by personally making a public statement.

The Zambian Voice Executive Director Chilufya Tayali says the issue of Mr. Lungu’s health must be taken seriously.

Mr Tayali notes that the fashion in which concerns over Mr. Lungu’s health are being dismissed is similar to the manner concerns over late President Michael Sata’s health were being refuted.

Mr. Tayali has told Qfm News that this is why his organisation wants Mr. Lungu, who is also Defence and Justice Minister, to make a clear position on his health.

He says this is especially that Mr. Lungu is vying for the country’s presidency and therefore the issue of his health must not be taken for granted.
