Vice-President Inonge Wina is sick and has left for India to seek specialist treatment.
Wina is said to have swollen legs and heart problems.
Assigning old vehicles on long rough roads get stressed and easily break down. Becomes more expensive to repair.
Madam Wina has been a great advocate for democracy and female inclusion in politics, its sad and I wish her well. As a country we need to move with time, first it was the presidential position falling vacant when a Head of state dies then we changed and added the Vice President position during elections. As a country we need to add insurance to all high level official positions especially those whose positions are not easily terminated, where possible insure the position so that whoever takes it up is covered, its a matter of engaging an insurance company and discuss modalities, the only cause for concern may be abuse of the system as most Government Officials are already insured due to the fact that when they are sick, they are rarely, if ever, seen queuing at UTH, etc, to see a doctor for a flue or stomach upsets, we all get them. The same way pension is deductible so should be medical insurance especially high level Government Officials.
As an ordinary citizen I pay 3500 kwacha per month for my medical insurance for myself and my wife. Should anyone of us falls sick and require medical treatment abroad, my scheme will be responsible. Why cant these lazy bums take medical insurance? By the way am a pensioner.
Retire old politicians and
Bring young blood as they can’t take pressure. Zambia mostly sends politicians for
Treatment abroad.why not ordinary Zambians?
ANIMAL FARM BY GEORGE OWELL
Who is the master, ordinary Voters or the MPs, Ministers and Government officials?
If ordinary citizens go to ill-equipped hospitals and shabby clinics why shall not the VP, President, Ministers, PS, retired politicians?
If they want to spend money from their pockets let them apply for leave, pay for the tickets, treatment, shopping and enjoy. Otherwise live and die like your masters the voters.
We pray for healing for our vice president. Can the government also look upon the Mbala man, now paralysed, with pity if not favour and arrange treatment for him in India. We beg the government oooo
Amaule abena Mushimba, are been evacuated just for a hand, why not Mbala boy. He pays tax too. He deserve treatment too. Chilufya, take this young man to South Africa , immediately
Googo, get well soon.
Can you also recommend The Mbala Young Man to be evacuated to South Africa as soon as possible .
The problem is KOSWE is busy gallivanting leaving everything in the hands of Old Veep. Too much pressure, her heart is weak. Let this Koswe, work now, reduce Jameson
Evacuated to India. An ordinary citizen from Mbala is languishing in UTH with a broken spinal cord. Evacuate him also. Self fish Government.
I have nothing against Wina. As a matter of fact I like her. There should however be a policy on ferrying VIPs for treatment abroad. Such a policy should have two strategies. First UTH should be appropriately upgraded and rehabilitated. Second: All MPs should be forced to enroll for an appropriate medical insurance that included treatment abroad. It does not look nice in the eyes of our cooperating partners that politicians receive expensive medical care abroad at taxpayers expense. I wish Mrs Wina quick recovery.
I wish her a quick recovery
