Explain Israel Trip, Demands Fda

The following press release was circulated by the Forum for Democratic Alternatives:

As Forum for Democratic Alternatives party (FDA), we wish to reiterate our earlier position that once one becomes President, they become public property owned by the people and therefore the people have every right to know when their president is unwell. Our considered view is that this should not mean that sickness should not befall a sitting president.

The nation may recall that Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 3211d President of the United States of America who served from 1933 to 1945 ran the country from a wheelchair because he was performing. He went further to complete 2 terms of office in a wheelchair, all because he was performing. On the contrary, the problem with Michael Sata is not about being sick but not performing.

Just like we had stated earlier that the tendency of hiding presidents when they were unwell was not helpful rather such actions generate a lot of speculations which is not healthy for the nation. Thus we woke up yesterday morning to learn that Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba had been anointed acting President of Zambia in the absence of President Michael Sata whose destination and purpose of trip abroad are not clearly stated.
