ZAMBIAN FINANCE MINISTER COLLAPSES AT A LIVINGSTONE HOTEL FUNCTION.
Finance Minister Bwalya N’gandu is reported to have collapsed yesterday at a Livingstone Hotel while presenting awards at an IDC function. The Minister was rushed to hospital and his condition was reported to have been stable by last night.
It is not known what caused Ng’andu to collapse although unconfirmed reports received suggest high blood pressure may have been the reason.
Two months ago Electoral Commission of Zambia Chief Electoral Officer Patrick Shindano collapsed at an interactive conference of political party Presidents that included President Edgar Lungu and his main political rival UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
