PRETORIA – Wednesday, 23rd July, 2014 – YOUTH and Sport Minister, Chishimba Kambwili on Tuesday evening visited President Sata’s son, Kazimu, who is admitted to Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Mr. Kambwili, who was accompanied by Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, His Excellency Mr. Muyeba Chikonde, also visited Tiberth Musambachime who is admitted to the same hospital. The two were evacuated to South Africa, for specialist treatment for injuries suffered in a road traffic accident in Kitwe a week ago.
Meanwhile, medical personnel at Milpark Hospital have praised their counterparts at Wusakile Hospital in Kitwe for the medical procedures that they conducted on Kazimu and Tiberth during the time the two were admitted to the Zambian hospital.
Mr. Kambwili said doctors at Milpark Hospital pointed out to him that it was going to be difficult for them had medical personnel at Wusakile not performed the medical procedures that they did on the two.
“So it’s like the people at Wusakile Hospital did a good job. Wusakile knew what they were doing hence it was easy for the medical personnel at Milpark to pick it up,” Mr. Kambwili said.
The Minister said he was glad that he found that Kazimu had made tremendous progress after going to Theatre on Monday evening.
“The young man is picking up. He was in a jovial mood and we joked and laughed. The doctors told me that there is tremendous improvement.”
Mr. Kambwili said Tiberth had also shown good signs of recovery after under-going an operation yesterday. He was happy that the two were likely to be discharged soon.
Mr. Kambwili said as Minister in charge of the youth, he felt duty bound to visit the two patients whom he said fell within the age-group of citizens that he represented.
“Besides all that, we are a family as Zambians and it is within our culture to be there for each other in times of distress.
Mr. Kambwili was received by Kazimu’s and Tiberth’s mothers, respectively.
On Saturday, President Sata, accompanied by First Lady, Christine Kaseba-Sata, visited Kazimu. The President also took time to see Tiberth.
Zambia’s Fourth President, Mr. Rupiah Banda, has also visited Kazimu.
