SHARM EL-SHEIK, Egypt. News leaked to a reporter covering the African Union summit has implicated foul play in the mystery illness of Zambian President Levy Mwanawasa. He was rushed to hospital on Sunday and the head of the Egyptian hospital where he was treated says he was in a semi-coma but "still alive".
A medical aide has said the problem was really a stomach ailment. When the presidents entourage were questioned they recalled him saying he was "sick to the stomach" of the situation in his neighboring country, Zimbabwe.
Other sources have said that now Robert Mugabe has completely and effectively abolished all dissent in Zimbabwe he is looking for new challenges. Mwanawasa has criticized the policies of Zimbabwe Ex-President Robert Mugabe in the past.
International opposition is next on Mugabes list, and Zambian President Levy Mwanawasa was number one. Insiders have speculated the Zimbabwean dictator has loosed his feared CIO (Central Inteligence Organisation) on the opponents to his style of "one man, one vote, and that man is ME!" democracy. They suspected anyone opposing recognition of Mugabes re-election at the African Union summit was on a hit-list for another dirty tricks campaign. Some have even speculated that they are using black magic and witchcraft to prop up the ageing Dictator, but the most likely cause was a simple case of poisoning as used on MDC supporters in Zimbabwe.
Doctors say the Zambian president had a "brain hemorrhage" which they have managed to stop. They have not managed to quell the sick feeling in his stomach yet.
