Chief government spokesperson Mwansa Kapeya has refuted Zambian Watchdog revelations that late Health Deputy Minister Dr. Patrick Chikusu was poisoned or his death induced after he resigned from government after president Michael Sata fired nurses who went on strike.
Mr. Kapeya has told Qfm news in a telephone interview that it is not true that Dr. Chikusu was poisoned or his death induced after he threaten to resign from government as he never threatened to resign over the firing of the nurses that went on strike.
At least kapeya was honest enough to admit that Dr Chikusu was very healthy and very fit a few hours before he died contrary to lies that he was in hospital a good number of days before he died.
Mr. Kapeya told QFM radio that on Friday November 29, a day before he fell sick Dr. Chikusu was actually in Parliament answering question for oral answers on his Ministry.
Mr. Kapeya says such media reports are actually news to the PF government as it is not possible that such a thing would happen.
Dr. Chikusu who was MMD Katuba Member of Parliament was put to rest on Saturday yesterday at the Leopards Hill Memorial Park in Lusaka.
