Sata’s medical doctors order him to be in bed by 20:00 hours everyday

Filed under: Statements |

President Michael Sata has now been advised to be in bed at least by 20:00 hours everyday as part of the medical prescription to avoid stressing himself.

The new medical advise is on top of the fact that Mr. Sata only works half-days three days a week, mainly Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Sources have told the Watchdog that the new medical prescription for the president comes after what doctors observed were ‘strenuous’ by-election campaigns where he hardly spent more than 30 minutes at each rally.

State House sources said doctors have now told him to further increase his bed resting time and avoid stressful activities.

“In fact, it will be a miracle if you will ever see him outside for official engagements. It is even worse for him if he attempts to venture into the up-coming by-elections in Lukule west and Kapiri-Mposhi,” sources said.

Sources said they can almost bet Mr. Sata won’t go for by-election campaigns anymore but will only unleash his police, state money, and PF rigging machinery to deliver the victory for him.

Insiders say state agents were told in no uncertain terms to do whatever was possible to make sure PF won Livingstone by-election as part of stress reduction on the president.

So far Mr. Sata has missed key national engagements for women and youth days where he only assigned his vice-president Guy Scott who could also not manage standing for longer periods.

Mr. Sata was further personally invited for the on-going high level India investment meeting but has again delegated vice-president Scott to represent him with ZNBC’s Effie Mpande as the reporter.

But Chief Government spokesperson Kennedy Sakeni refuted assertions that President Michael Sata has fallen ill.

Mr. Sakeni who is also Information and Broadcasting Minister said that the fact that the president has delegated the Vice President Guy Scott to officiate at national important events such as Youth and the Women Days does not mean that the president is sick.

Mr. Sakeni disclosed this to Qfm in an interview that President Sata is in good health and has been meeting his Cabinet Minister at State House almost on a daily basis.
