Ailing Chibombamilimo evacuated to India

Government has evacuated former Deputy minister of Energy Lameck Chibombamilimo to India, the Watchdog has been told.

Chibombamilimo, the MMD MP for Mpulungu, has been bed-ridden  for the past three months at his Kabulonga residence in Lusaka.

The MP has kidney complications and the Watchdog has been informed that he urgently requires a kidney transplant.

Government had rejected pleas to evacuate him for specialist treatment.

But last Saturday the government finally evacuated him to India.

Last year president Rupiah Banda fired Cibombamilimo together with then Technology and Vocational Training Deputy Minister, Jonas Shakafuswa for what he said was lack of allegiance to him as the appointing authority.

Banda claimed that instead of the two ministers being loyal to him and the MMD, they paid allegiance to the Patriotic Front (PF) and The Post newspaper.

“I am now the party president and if a member of Parliament talks nonsense I will follow him to the constituency, now I have sacked Shakafuswa and Chibombamilimo. They have to stand on the PF ticket or The Post ticket.

“If The Post says you are a good minister, then you are a good minister to The Post and not a good minister for me,” Mr Banda told hundreds of cheering supporters.
