Zambian President Edgar Lungu collapsed on the podium while presiding over a Women`s Day celebration in Lusaka on Sunday -- less than two months after the 58-year-old took over from a leader who died in office.
Zambia`s defence minister Edgar Lungu, of the ruling Patriotic Front, has narrowly won the country`s presidential race, the electoral commission announced Saturday after an election marred by delays.
Zambians formed long lines on Sunday to pay last respects to their late president, Michael Sata, who died in London last week aged 77 while undergoing treatment for an undisclosed illness.
At least 26 people, most of them children, died when a ferry capsized in the southern African country of Zambia, police said today.
Zambia on Friday denied rumours that President Michael Sata had died during a visit to New York after he failed to make a scheduled speech to the UN general assembly.
Fifty-one people died and several others were injured when a passenger bus collided with a truck near the Zambian capital on Thursday, reports said.
