DR LUDWIG Sondashi  says President Edgar Lungu has very bad drinking habits which may be worsening his bad health. Dr Sondashi, the founder an AIDS medicine , said the transparency that State House was showing around President Lungu’s health was an illusion meant to conceal the real problem which the Head of State was facing. “His bad health can be related to his drinking habits, because he has very bad drinking habits and we knew that he was sick. Some of us know that his sickness can come from that very habit, so I think we must not start hiding the truth,” he said in an unsolicited interview. “If doctors in Zambia told us something which is an illusion, we would believe it but like me, I know and I was also worried when  I saw President Lungu standing at Heroes Stadium because I knew that President Lungu had bad health.” Dr Sondashi said he would believe President Lungu if he stated that his illness emanated from his bad drinking habits and not otherwise. “…and therefore, if he told us his illness is something which relates to his drinking habits, we would have believed, I would have believed but not this thing we are hearing of narrowing of food pipe or something like that, or malaria,” he said. Dr Sondashi said the truth surrounding the President’s health has remained hidden despite the medical bulletins that State House was issuing. “It’s unfortunate that even issues which doctors said they had given us proper information regarding the illness of President Lungu, we are not getting the information properly. First of all when the President collapsed, we expected the doctors to tell us what happened since the President himself wanted the doctors to tell us. But it’s the doctors who appeared to be hiding the truth. Even if it looks like Edgar’s illness is not being hidden, the information is being hidden,” he said. Dr Sondashi urged doctors attending to President Lungu to help in giving the public the correct information about the real situation the President was in.  “We have not gotten the truth from doctors themselves who formed the board. And this must not happen in a so-called democratic society,” he said. Dr Sondashi warned that what was happening in Zambia should serve as a lesson to citizens. “People were saying, ‘You should not vote for someone who is old because old people are dying in office.’ But Edgar Chagwa Lungu is a young person, so I think now Zambians will realise what I was saying that, in that office, you don’t have to segregate between an old or young person. You can vote for any person as long as an old person is fit to hold that office,” he said. Dr Sondashi, however, wished President Lungu a quick recovery. “When I say all this, I am not wishing Edgar bad. I would like to see that Edgar recovers. But I am saying it because the President is a people’s person and his health is not like my health as an ordinary person. When a person becomes President, it means that he is putting his health into public domain, so everybody must know even if the President is suffering from headache. So these doctors whom we have in Zambia, who formed the medical board must be told that there is a difference between the health of a President and a private person. So they must not appear to be falling under the doctrine of secrecy when they are dealing with the health of the President,” he said. Dr Sondashi said there was no way people could stop talking about the health of the President. But chief government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili described Dr Sondashi’s remarks as sour grapes.  – See more at: http://www.postzambia.com/news.php?id=6710#sthash.CcXzBtEu.dpuf
