President Edgar Lungu President has sent his heartfelt birthday message to First Republican President Dr. David Kenneth Kaunda on his 93rd birthday which falls today.

In his message to Dr. Kaunda, President Lungu has thanked God for sustaining the first Republican President for many years and wished him many more happy returns.

The President has paid glowing tribute to Dr. Kaunda for the immense sacrifices that he and with his fellow freedom fighters made to attain Zambia’s political emancipation.

The President has hailed Dr Kaunda as a living icon who should be emulated by the young generation by embracing the good values that he has always stood for, of loving God and loving fellow neighbours.

President Lungu advised the nation not lose sight of the unity and love that the First Republican President has always preached under the One Zambia One Nation motto, if peace and stability is to continue.

The President has said the selfless attributes of Dr Kaunda not only contributed to Zambia’s political freedom but to the emancipation of other countries in the region and beyond.

The President observes that Dr. Kaunda had placed the bar high hence the country’s recognition by the international community as a beacon of peace and stability.

“On behalf of the Zambian government, the people and indeed on my own behalf, we join you, Your Excellency in celebrating your 93rd birthday. We thank God for sustaining you all these years and pray for more blessings upon you. We are proud of your achievements for this country. Please accept my warm personal best wishes for good health and many more happy years,” the President said.

GOVERNMENT WISHES FIRST REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT DR. KENNETH KAUNDA A HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Government wishes first Republican President Dr. Kenneth Kaunda a very happy and gratifying birthday as he turns 93 years old today.

As a nation we acknowledge the selfless contribution made by Dr. Kaunda and other freedom fighters to liberate Zambia from its colonial masters.

Dr. Kaunda inspired millions of Zambians to fight relentlessly to bring about freedom, unity, peace and stability.

We are also grateful to this exceptional compatriot for allowing himself to be used as an icon of our emancipation struggle.

UNIP led by Dr. Kunda ran a spirited fight for Zambia’s independence.

We also acknowledge the role which Dr. Kaunda played in the liberation of other countries in the region and beyond.

Since leaving active politics in 1991, Dr. Kaunda has been playing the role of father-of-the-nation figure for Zambians.

He has also been involved in various charitable organisations. His most notable contribution has been his passion in the fight against the spread of HIV and AIDS.

Dr. Kaunda remains an icon not only to Zambia but Africa and the world.

Government under the leadership of President Edgar Lungu is on a mission to translate the hard won political independence by Dr. Kaunda into economic independence by delivering viable services to the Zambian people and will count on the support of all as they have always done.

I urge the general citizenry, particularly young people, to take advantage of this discerning and brilliant father of the nation for guidance.

We love you and wish you long life and God’s blessings.

Hon. Kampamba Mulenga, MP
MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND BROADCASTING SERVICES AND CHIEF GOVERNMENT SPOKESPERSON

    • Kaunda and Mwanwaasa were the LAST DICTATORS we had. Sata and lungu have shown how a legacy needs to be created.

      They were the worst presidents Zambia ever had

      I wish him well and Congratulations Dr Kaunda.

      Don’t quiet understand why he is a Doctor without a PhD like the one I am completing in June.

      Thanks

    • Meant to say “… I wish my hero” not I will.

      Happy Birthday, KK … Long Live Big Guy. We love you our founding father.

      Tiyende Pamodzi Ndi Mutima Umo!!! Tiyende Pamodzi Ndi Mutima Umo … let’s walk together in one accord and build our nation … you used to say and the proof is still there for all to see. No single president proved GDP growth anywhere in Africa during 1964 to 1980.

      Yes, afterwards things went south but you had the longest sustained economic growth of any president in Africa other than Dos Santos in Angola.

    • 1. Happy Birthday Dr K.D. Kaunda – 1st Republican President of the Republic of Zambia!!!
      2. Dr President Lungu and fellow Zambians, I don’t think it’s enough for government to just send KK birthday wishes; govt should have arranged a big and memorable birthday party for KK. In fact, it deeply concerns me that as Zambians we have respect for our history. By now we should’ve erected a huge statue of KK as our liberation hero.

    • Happy Birthday KK, my President. You deserve another 50 years more! You are truly a man of God, and that saying “KK wa mu ya ya ” was not without cause, you are really living it. God Bless you, Mr President !!!!.

      Mr ECL sending flowers and a letter to commemorate KK birthday is not enough, worst still just sending your VP.
      Give this man the respect he deserves !!!

  3. KK is now on Lungu’s payroll and is now a Kumodzi Kumawa or a Wako Niwako Retired President instead of a National Father Figure. KK can see the Pain and suffering that HH is going thru inflicted by KK’s Paymaster but he chooses to turn a blind eye. Its sad to see the founding Father being compromised by Dictator Lungu in exchange for money. KK should advise Lungu to release HH without further delay and unconditionally for the Good of One Zambia. One Nation.

    • Iwe KK can not be compromised by Lungu, he is not gaining anything from ECL`s presidency. Whatever he is getting is by law and ECL can not influence it. Your statement is quite unfair, to say the least of KK, that is just too cheap a statement.

      On the other hand, KK `s word on HH case could have an impact.

  13. General kanene & Chilyata, the only trouble is that KK is from eastern, have you forgotten what hh said about easterners when he lost the election petition. Of course he was very bitter at the time (not that he has changed) but nevertheless he said it and he is on record.
    General kanene, dont expect KK to say a word on an adult who has self inlicted himself, you are being highly irresponsible to even mention the old man in such breath. Learn from British HC who says his government is appalled at HHs uncivilised manners.

  16. Mushota, you are a sorry excuse for an illeterate ignorant nicompoop! Dr Kaunda and his revered wisdom do not reside in your degenarate orbit! Quit your vainless attempt to dellusional attempts to appear intellectual because you are not, inspite of the distance President Kaunda spotted you and your sorry tribalistic mucus you spew on the constant! Go to that outhouse in your house and wipe the entire length where the sun dont shine and no mirror will lie, and ask yourself, is that me? Dr darkness mushota? Think before you start spitting your hyperbolic lunacy woMan!
