Zambia’s president Edgar Lungu has assured citizens that he is well after collapsing while attending a public event.
He was presiding over the national defence day on sunday when “he experienced sudden dizziness” in the capital, lusaka.
Secretary to the cabinet Simon Miti issued a statement saying that the president “is well and has continued to discharge his duties”.
Dr Miti said President Lungu recovered immediately after the incident.
The president had a similar health incident in 2015, which the presidency said was because of an “oesophagus condition”.
President Lungu is seeking re-election in the 12 august polls
