—Chief Nalubamba of the Tonga-speaking people in Southern Province has been admitted to Choma General Hospital for suspected anaemia and malaria.
Deputy Provincial Permanent Secretary, Douglas Ngimbu, who visited the traditional leader at his hospital bed today, described the condition of the Chief as stable and responding well to treatment.
Mr Ngimbu, who was accompanied by some senior Government officials, said the health personnel at the health institution were closely monitoring his condition.
“Our Chief is recovering well. I personally visited him and talked to him and he told me he was feeling much better and is out of danger,” Mr Ngimbu said.
Mr Ngimbu noted that it was Government’s desire to see the traditional leader discharged from the hospital to enable him continue executing his duties in the chiefdom and the country at large.
The traditional leader was admitted to Choma General Hospital last weekend on suspected malaria and anaemia.
