Reports reaching the Zambian Watchdog indicate that Ministry of Health Deputy Minister Dr. Patrick Chikusu has died.
Dr Chikusu is said to have died on the way to Milpark Hospital, in South Africa to seek better health facilities and where health workers are not on strike unlike in Zambia.
Dr Chikusu was admitted in Intensive Care Unit at UTH but was evacuated Monday afternoon but died a few minutes after reaching South Africa.
Dr. Chikusu was elected as Katuba MP under MMD but became another traitor who crossed over to PF for an appointment as deputy minister of Health and was voting with PF in parliament.
Katuba is in Central province.
Before he won the seat under MMD, the Katuba seat, was held by Jonas Shakafuswa, who has since crossed over to UPND after being expelled from MMD together with former deputy minister under MMD Lameck Chibombamilimo.
