President Michael Sata last evening sneaked out of the country for an unknown destination, but believed to be London, UK aboard the Zambian presidential Challenger plane.
But other sources indicate that there was a decoy or an exact replica of the Presidential Challenger that Mr. Sata used which is believed to be an air ambulance.
It is so far not clear who is Acting president but Mr. Sata was seen off by his uncle Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda, who has previously been the Acting president, but other sources now say he could have left Wynter Kabimba as Acting president this time.
It is so far not clear why Mr. Sata secretly left the country this early ahead of the public African Union summit, which only starts next week, Wednesday in Equatorial Guinea.
Government have so far not said anything about Mr. Sata’s travel to London and any speculations about his failing health has so far landed many people in police cells and courts as PF insist he is very fit.
The fit Mr. Sata is expected to join other Heads of States and Governments in the meeting, which started yesterday, June 20, 2014.
The meeting of presidents (Assembly of the Union) will officially open on June 26, 2014, which means president Sata must be in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinean by Wednesday next week.
