Zambian President Edgar Lungu

 

Zambian President Edgar Lungu collapsed during a national defense day function in the capital, Lusaka, according to iexclusive News Nigeria.

Dr. Simon Miti, the Secretary to the Cabinet, released a statement to reporters and State TV shortly after, assuring the local public and international community that President Lungu is “doing well and has continued to discharge his duties.”

The President suffered “sudden dizziness” during the 45th Defence Force Day Commemoration and Investiture Ceremony, according to Dr Miti, but recovered quickly.

Mr Lungu is said to have returned to State House after walking alone to his vehicle.

In 2015, the Zambian president had a similar experience due to a “oesophagus disease,” according to the presidency.

The Defence Forces demonstrated their military prowess during a four-hour ceremony at Lusaka’s Freedom Statute on Independence Avenue.

President Lungu used the occasion to hold an investiture ceremony for brave servicemen and women.

Zambia is getting ready for a general election on August 12th.

Following Michael Sata’s death in 2014, President Lungu was elected in a by-election.
