Zambian President Michael Sata Dies

Daily Nation   in 
October 29, 2014

He had been in London receiving medical treatment.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing on of our beloved president,” government Cabinet secretary Roland Msiska said.

Earlier, the independent Zambia Reports quoted “multiple sources” among Sata’s delegation as confirming that he had died, while the Zambian Watchdog website said it had “100 per cent confirmation” of the president’s death.

Sata has long been rumoured to be seriously ill and has not been seen in public since returning from the UN General Assembly last month, where he failed to make a scheduled speech.

He flew to London a week ago for treatment.

Sata made a rare public appearance on September 19 to tell parliament: “I am not dead.”
