Dr. Patrick Chikusu
Chief government spokesperson Mwansa Kapeya has refuted media reports suggesting that the late Health Deputy Minister Dr. Patrick Chikusu was allegedly poisoned or his death induced after he resigned from government after president Michael Sata allowed the firing of nurses that went on strike.

Mr. Kapeya has told Qfm news in a telephone interview that it is not true that Dr. Chikusu was poisoned or his death induced after he threaten to resign from government as he never threatened to resign over the firing of the nurses that went on strike.

Mr. Kapeya says on Friday November 29, a day before he fell sick Dr. Chikusu was actually in Parliament answering question for oral answers on his Ministry the reason why such media reports cannot be true.

Mr. Kapeya says such media reports are actually news to the PF government as it is not possible that such a thing would happen.

Dr. Chikusu who was MMD Katuba Member of Parliament was put to rest on Saturday yesterday at the Leopards Hill Memorial Park in Lusaka.
