President Edgar Lungu will go on holiday just after the African Union Summit.
Lungu was elected president last week and has not even finished appointing members of his cabinet.
Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Chama says President Edgar Lungu will go on holiday after returning from the African Union Summit currently taking place in Ethiopia.
Chama told journalist that President Lungu would constitute his full cabinet after he returns from an unnamed holiday destination.
Chama did not say where Lungu will spend his holiday from and how the long the holiday would be. Chama said Lungu needed to refresh after a gruesome election campaign.
On Wednesday, Lungu underwent a medical check up but the results are being kept secret but his handlers issued a statement claiming that he had been given a clean bill.
