President Sata joins KK’s Birthday celebrations
President Sata has sent a special best wishes message to First Republican President Dr Kenneth David Kaunda on his 88th Birthday.
In a letter to Dr Kaunda, President Sata stated that words alone cannot put across the Zambian people’s happiness as they join Dr Kaunda and his family in these celebrations.
This is according to a press statement made available to Lusakatimes by George Chellah special assistant to the President Press and Public relations.
“You have sacrificed so much for our country just to make us who we are today – proud Zambians. It is gratifying to note that even in advanced age, you continue being the great compassionate citizen of the world we have always known,” read President Sata’s letter in part.
“Your Excellency, like you always remind us: ‘One Zambia, One Nation! Love thy neighbour as you love thyself.’ We commit to these noble principles and guarantee that what you have taught us over the years will be our lead and guide.
“On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Zambia, the people and indeed on my own behalf, I submit my warmest congratulations and best wishes to Your Excellency as you celebrate this great and befitting event. Wishing Your Excellency personal good health and prosperity. Happy Birthday Shikulu!”
