Following many weeks of ailing dictator Michael Sata missing from the public, photos showing him allegedly chairing a meeting have emerged. But of course they are just static photos.
A puffed looking Sata was shown in photos speaking with representatives from the UNAIDS, Churches Health Association of Zambia (CHAZ) and the National AIDS Council (NAC) among others.
And the meeting to discuss AIDS was held ‘indoors’ or secretly.
Sata’s wife, a medical doctor was in that meeting, just in case, though, the country was told she was there in her capacity as vice-chairperson of the Organisation of African First Ladies (OAFLA).
According to his voice mail George Chellah, Sata convened the meeting to review the 2013 Progress Report on the Global Plan towards the elimination of new HIV infections among children by 2015 and keeping their mothers alive.
Can Sata really chair such a meeting? Such reviews are done by experts.
But anyway, according to Chellah, Sata said Zambia achieved a 51 per cent reduction in the number of new HIV infections among children between the years 2009 – 2012. This was achieved due to the MMD good intervention methods.
