[Kenneth Kaunda was the President of Zambia. This Black caused more problems for Rhodesia than any other Black, and he was protected by the disgusting British. Rhodesia should have invaded Zambia to be frank with you. Anyway, the old dirt bag lived an amazingly long life and it is with pleasure that I hear he finally died. Jan]
Kaunda ruled Zambia from 1964, when the southern African nation won its independence from Britain, until 1991.
Kenneth Kaunda, Zambia’s founding president and liberation hero, has died aged 97 at a military hospital in Lusaka where he was being treated for pneumonia, his son Kambarage said on Wednesday.
Kaunda ruled Zambia from 1964, when the southern African nation won its independence from Britain, until 1991, and afterwards become one of Africa’s most committed activists against HIV/AIDS.
“I am sad to inform (members) we have lost Mzee. Let’s pray for him,” Kambarage said on the late president’s Facebook page.
The former president had been feeling unwell and had been admitted to the Maina Soko Medical Centre in Lusaka earlier this week.
Although Zambia’s copper-based economy fared badly under his long stewardship, Kaunda will be remembered more for his role as an anti-colonial fighter who stood up to white minority-ruled South Africa.
