Felix Mutati, the Zambian former Works and Supply Minister, as well as two others have been transported to the University Teaching Hospital after the group got into a road accident.
The incident occurred on Thursday when the official was en route to Mufumbwe for the party mobilisation. According to the reports, his Toyota Hilux hit a deep pothole and stuck in a mire.
Mutati’s personal assistant Edmond Miti confirmed that all of the victims were stable but in need of further observation.
“Basically, the reason why he has been evacuated is to ascertain whether or not there are any other injuries that may have not been detected using the equipment that was used at the hospital in Solwezi,” Miti claimed.
The police also investigate the matter.
