PRESIDENT Sata’s son Kazimu has been evacuated to Johannesburg, South Africa, for specialist treatment for injuries suffered in a road traffic accident.
Kazimu was on Tuesday involved in a road traffic accident on the Kitwe-Ndola dual carriageway.
The accident happened around 17:30 hours near Kitwe’s Moba Hotel when the vehicle on which he was travelling overturned.
Ministry of Health permanent secretary David Chikamata confirmed in an interview in Lusaka yesterday that Mr Sata, who was earlier admitted at Kitwe’s Wusakile Mine Hospital, was evacuated to South Africa on Wednesday evening.

“Yes, he [Kazimu] was evacuated last evening [Wednesday] and he has arrived in South Africa. I am, however, yet to get details from the Zambian mission on the hospital he has been admitted to,” Dr Chikamata said.
