Edgar Lungu’s HIV prescription is Fake, written by a PF member – UPND Member

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

PrescriptionA Member of the opposition UPND based in United Kingdom Larry Mweetwa says the prescription order above published by Zambian Watchdog that it was for President Edgar Lungu is fake.

Mweetwa says he strongly suspects the “fake” prescription was written by a PF none medical expert who just had an evil agenda to embarrass the President Lungu.

“I know there has been a number of accusations about the authenticity of the said prescription. As an Expert in this field I can tell you just at glance that the prescription was fake.

1. It had no dosage frequency and duration
2. Atripla is a combination of three dugs (efavirenz, emtricitabine, and tenofovir). No credible doctor would add Efavirenz when it’s already incorporated in one tablet.

I strongly suspect the prescription was written by a PF non medical expert who just had an evil agenda to embarrass the head of state. I think such cheap politicking should be left to useless PF Tribal Hate pages like Tumfweko,” Mweetwa said.

The Zambian Watchdog, a news website critical of the PF government on April 7, 2015 published the prescription with the following article.


Just a day after mocking the people who died in a road accident, indisputable evidence has finally emerged regarding President Edgar Lungu’s exact health condition based on his medical prescription of 2nd June 2014, when he visited Care for Business (CFB) Medical Centre Plot 4192,Addis Ababa Drive.

On this day, Lungu then aged 57 years old and serving as the Defence and Justice minister visited CFB like he had always been doing and was attended to by Dr. Dave Kishore who later prescribed the following drugs.

1Zytiga, Abiraterone Acetate, Atripla 600mg, Efravirenz 600, Calcitriol, Alpha D3 (0.5mg) For ESRD

According to this prescription and other detailed medical records for Edgar Lungu in possession of the Zambian Watchdog, his drug combination is used for the following purposes:

Zytiga (abiraterone acetate) is a prescription medicine that is used along with prednisone. ZYTIGA® to treat men with castration-resistant prostate cancer (prostate cancer that is resistant to medical or surgical treatments that lower testosterone) that has spread to other parts of the body.

ZYTIGA may cause serious side effects including: High blood pressure (hypertension, low blood potassium (hypokalemia), and fluid retention (edema).

Abiraterone Acetate: In combination with prednisone for the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer previously treated with docetaxel-containing therapy.

Atripla 600mgAtripla medicine is used in HIV infection.

Efavirenz is a prescription medicine for the treatment of HIV infection. Efavirenz is always used in combination with other HIV medicines.

Calcitriol is vitamin D3. Vitamin D is important for the absorption of calcium from the stomach and for the functioning of calcium in the body.

Calcitriol is used to treat hyperparathyroidism (overactive parathyroid glands) and metabolic bone disease in people who have chronic kidney failure and are not receiving dialysis.

Alpha D3 for End Stage Renal Desease), End-stage kidney disease is the last stage of chronic kidney disease. This is when your kidneys can no longer support your body’s needs. The kidneys remove waste and excess water from the body.


End-stage kidney disease (ESRD) is when the kidneys are no longer able to work at a level needed for day-to-day life.

The most common causes of ESRD are diabetes and high blood pressure. These conditions can affect your kidneys.

ESRD almost always comes after chronic kidney disease.

Ideally someone’s medical records are supposed to be highly confidential.

But in Zambia, we have not been lucky as the country has so far lost two sitting Heads of States and in all instances, the nation was not being told the true medical condition about the president.

In the light of the already inconsistent and false information regarding the medical condition of President Edgar Lungu, we feel duty bound to publish this and if necessarily more medical records in our possession.

We are fully aware the state will, as expected, refute this information as mere fabrication. But it is not up to us to prove the authenticity. It is now up to to the Zambian public to demand an open and transparent medical check up of their president Edgar Lungu and prove us and the doubting Zambian people wrong.

What is a fact and that should be commended though is that Lungu himself has several times admitted being sick, but he has not been honest enough to the country, on the extent of his ailment, as he went ahead to assume a highly stressful office of the president.

  2. Indeed this is a fake description owing to the combination of HIV drugs. Again CFB is a very big hospital , surely it should have supplied him with those simple medicines found in all public hospitals free of charge- than giving him a prescription. I should also mention that who is Edger Lungu? he is just a human being , therefore whether he has HIV or not he is our President and he shall again win in 2016 presidential elections. If he suffered way back beyond 2014, he is therefore likely to continue living beyond his Presidency – he has all he needs to take care of his health. The ghost media is at it again – come in the open.

    • Edgar Lungu is wining the 2016 elections looking at the desperation of UPND
