Zambian President Edgar Lungu on Sunday suffered an attack of dizziness that prompted a sudden halt to television coverage of an official ceremony in the southern African nation, the cabinet secretary said.
Lungu, who is campaigning for re-election in August, had been attending a defense forces Commemoration Day event, which was brought to a swift end.
“President of Zambia Edgar Lungu this afternoon experienced sudden dizziness,” said cabinet secretary Simon Miti in a statement.
“He recovered immediately and walked to the official car and returned to his residence at State House.”
Miti added that the 64-year-old was well and would continue to discharge his duties.
