Information minister Kennedy Sakeni’s condition has reportedly deteriorated. The Watchdog has been informed that the Mansa Member of Parliament was last night put on oxygen at UTH where he is hospitalised.
The government has never admitted that this senior cabinet minister is sick.
A source told the Watchdog that the minister’s family members today (Thursday), gathered at UTH after being informed that their relative was in very critical condition.
Sakeni was evacuated to India in the last week of July for specialist treatment. After the Watchdog revealed this, government through acting spokesperson Fackson Shamenda said he was just on a routine medical check up.
But three weeks ago, Sakeni was brought back from India quietlty and admitted to UTH.
Government has not said anything.
According to highly placed sources, doctors in India where the Mansa MP went for specialist treatment advised that he should just be taken back home because there was nothing more they could.
