Poor People’s Party president, Mr Mike Mulongoti continues to receive specialized medical treatment in South Africa, says PF’s outgoing High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba. Mwamba says Mulongoti was made an outpatient the last two weeks but due to ‘recent development have neccesisted that he be re-admitted into hospital’.
“We urge all stakeholders not to politicise Mr. Mulongoti’s illness and allow him the privacy he requires,” Mwamba said.
He said Mr. Mulongoti was re-admitted last week into hospital.
And Mr. Mwamba has advised that to his knowledge no press statement(s) have been issued by Mr. Mulongoti and further advised the media to get in touch with him or Mrs. Betty Mulongoti for clarification.
In January 2019, President Edgar Lungu directed that Mr. Mulongoti be evacuated for specialist treatment in South Africa.
Mr. Mulongoti has since been admitted to Awryp Medical Centre in Johannesburg.
