I am greatly saddened to learn of the passing today of former President, His Excellency Dr Kenneth Kaunda.
Dr Kaunda will forever be remembered for:
- his service to the people of Zambia
- his role as the Founding Father of his nation
- his regional leadership in maintaining Zambia as a bastion against apartheid
- his mantra, ‘One Zambia, One Nation’
He has earned his place in history many times over.
I wish to extend my deepest condolences to Dr Kaunda’s family and to all Zambians at this difficult time. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
