この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

Kenneth Kaunda, Zambia’s founding president and liberation hero, has died at a military hospital in Lusaka where he was being treated for pneumonia, his son, Kambarage, said on Thursday. He was 97.
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.
Al Jazeera’s Haru Mutasa has more on his long life in politics.

      Why? Because you say he is NOT. The simple fact that you are here running your mouth aganist a great man that GOD himself blessed with a long and fruitful life. What have you done besides complain? Did you risk your life for at least 4 nations would be free?Did you hold Zambia together as he did? Did he make mistakes? Of course he did. He was a man, Instead of learning what you can from him to better your own life you are here on the day of his death showing your petty and wicked heart making the mzungu and the colonizer happy.

      @Yaladdin GCC He suppressed all opposition parties, put the country under one party rule, and colonised the Barotse Kingdom.

    🇿🇲On the internal,National-Zambian Politics, the first President of Zambia, Dr. Kenneth Kaunda, will be remember on how he successfully united all Zambian Citizens together to peacefully co-exist under the “One Zambia One Nation” motto; by breaking down regional tribal segregation, uniting churches together like the formation of the United Church of Zambia (UCZ) and ultimately by establishing a “One Party Participatory Democracy” in order to eradicate political violence. 🇿🇲
