The Daughters of Mary Immaculate (DMI) has joined in commemorating the event in different ways with special prayers dedicated to President Michael Sata.
National Co-ordinator Jenny Maila has for this reason urged women in the country to pray for President Sata’s quickest recovery.
Sister Maila also observed that women can contribute to Zambia politically if they changed their mindset.
She was speaking in Lusaka during the DMI Women Federation on the sidelines of the 50th independence jubilee celebrations.
Sr. Maila thanked First republican president Dr. Kenneth Kaunda and other gallant freedom fighters for his immense contribution to liberate Zambia from the colonial rule leading to attaining the country’s independence.
And speaking at the same function, DMI Secretary General Mary Tembo is happy that DMI was expanding across Zambia.
Ms. Tembo urged women not to relent but to continue from where the fore-fathers and mothers left politically especially bringing food on the table for their families.
October 24th, 1964 is when Zambia became independent.
