gathered that Zambian President Edgar Lungu fell during a national defense day event in the capital, Lusaka, on Sunday, according to local media.
Dr. Simon Miti, the Secretary to the Cabinet, released a statement to media and State TV shortly after, assuring the local people and international world that President Lungu is “doing well and has continued to execute his duties.”
The President experienced “sudden dizziness” during the 45th Defence Force Day Commemoration and Investiture Ceremony, according to Dr Miti, but recovered quickly. Mr. Lungu is a Zambian politician.
The Zambian leader had a similar experience in 2015, caused by what the presidency said was an “oesophagus condition”.
The four-hour defence day ceremony took place at Lusaka’s Freedom Statute on Independence Avenue where the Defence Forces showcased their military prowess.
President Lungu used the event to conduct an investiture ceremony to honour gallant men and women in uniform.
