UPND to petition Chief Justice to constitute medical board to examine President Sata’s mental state

The opposition UPND intends to write to the Chief Justice to request that a medical board be constituted to examine the mental state of President Michael Sata.
“We believe President Sata’s recent behavior and statements raise questions about his current state of mind and we want an independent medical board to examine him,” says UPND presidential adviser Douglas Siakalima.
He told a media briefing in Lusaka today that the UPND is concerned that the Head of State might issue some more statements that might cause chaos in the country.
“We are a responsible, patriotic and concerned political party. We are worried just like everybody else about the President’s state of health.”
Mr. Siakalima said the UPND legal team will be invoking the constitutional provisions that empower citizens to petition the Chief Justice to set up a medical board to look into the state of the President’s mind.
