A person who was in President Edgar Lungu’s entourage has explained that the presidential collapsing was so fast and spectacular. Lungu who spent the first night at Maina Soko military hospital sustained a swollen forehead as can be seen from the photo.
‘He fell all the way down. The body guards were far so no one was close by to hold him. Even when lifting him, others had to hold his legs and others his chest area. It was really a bad fall apparently, the official said.
The official said that it happened so fast and was so shocking that none of them even got a photo. After the cops surrounded him and carried him off, they started asking each other if any of them had got it and no one had.
It was really a bad fall. And when he was taken to the room behind, he came back later to say that he will not finish but go as he was not feeling well. He even said that he must have malaria, right at Heroes stadium before doctors diagnosed him.
