YOUTH and Sport Minister, Chishimba Kambwili on Tuesday evening visited President Michael Sata’s son, Kazimu, who is admitted to Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Kazimu was involved in a road traffic accident along the Kitwe-Ndola dual carriageway and was evacuated to South Africa for specialist treatment.
Mr Kambwili, who was accompanied by Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Muyeba Chikonde, also visited Tiberth Musambachime, who was in the vehicle with Kazimu when the accident occurred.
She is also admitted to Milpark Hospital after she was also evacuated there.
The minister said he was glad that Kazimu had made tremendous progress after going to theatre on Monday evening.
This is according to a statement issued by Press secretary at the High Commission of Zambia to South Africa Nicky Shabolyo.
“The young man is picking up, he was in a jovial mood and we joked and laughed and the doctors told me that there is tremendous improvement,” Mr Kambwili said.
He said Tiberth had also shown good signs of recovery after under-going an operation yesterday and he was happy that the two were likely to be discharged soon.
Mr Kambwili said as the minister in charge of the youth, he felt duty bound to visit the two patients whom he said fell within the age-group of citizens that he represented.
“Besides all that, we are a family as Zambians and it is within our culture to be there for each other in times of distress,” he said.
Mr Kambwili was received by Kazimu’s and Tiberth’s mothers.
On Saturday, President Sata and First Lady Christine Kaseba, visited Kazimu and the Head of State also took time to see Tiberth.
Meanwhile, medical personnel at Milpark Hospital have praised their counterparts at Wusakile Hospital in Kitwe for the medical procedures that they conducted on Kazimu and Tiberth during the time that the two were admitted there.
Mr Kambwili said the doctors at Milpark told him that it was going to be difficult for them, had their counterparts at Wusakile not performed the medical procedures they did on the two.
