Patriotic Front (PF) deputy national secretary, Bridget Attanga, yesterday dispelled rumours that Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba had been evacuated to South Africa.
Mrs Attanga was contacted after efforts to get Mr Kabimba via mobile phone failed.
Mr Kabimba who is PF national secretary was rumoured to have been evacuated to South Africa on Saturday.
But Mrs Attanga dispelled the rumour saying Mr Kabimba was ‘very much’working in his office.
“Perhaps it is people who do not like him who are spreading such rumours but he is very much in his office working,” she said.
Meanwhile, Deputy Inspector General of Police Solomon Jere is reported to be admitted to the intensive care of Malcolm Watson Hospital in Mufulira.
The reports said Dr Jere was on oxygen therapy and that he was visited by Inspector General of Police Stella Libongani on Monday.
Dr Jere was promoted to the position of deputy Inspector General of Police on October 26, 2012.
Efforts to confirm Dr. Jere’s hospilisation failed by press time.
