LUSAKA Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has confirmed that he has been admitted to hospital due to COVID-19 .
Lusambo confirmed that he was in hospital to Economic Equity Party (EEP) president Chilufya Tayali in a phone conversation.
“Just spoke to Bowman this morning and he told me he is doing well.
He is highly expectant that he will be discharged soon,” Tayali revealed in a Facebook posting.
Tayali said contrary to “fake news that has been circulating that Bowman is battling for his life, the Lusaka Minister is doing well though he has to stay in the hospital because he can’t be at home like what has been happening to his fellow ministers because he has babies at home.”

Dr Chilufya announced that 15 members of parliarment had tested positive for COVID-19 although Clerk of the National Assembly Cecilia Mbewe later revised the figure down to five lawmakers.
