President Edgar Lungu has urged Zambians to emulate the spirit of selflessness and unity exhibited by freedom fighters.
President Lungu says the young generation should draw lessons from the sacrifices made by the country’s founding fathers in order to make Zambia a better place.
The Head of State said this when he made a stopover at Kasama Airport this morning enroute to Chinsali for the burial of former vice president Simon Kapwepwe’s widow Salome.
And President Lungu has challenged all Zambians to reflect on their lives and embrace biblical values.
He further urged youths to strive to contribute positively to national development so as to be remembered after death.
Meanwhile, Northern Province Minister Brian Mundubile said the province is mourning with the Kapwepwe family and the nation at large.
Mr. Mundubile said Mrs. Kapwepwe will be greatly remembered for her contribution to Zambia’s liberation.
In a related development, Malole Constituency Member of Parliament Christopher Yaluma said Zambia has lost a gallant woman who taught the nation self-sacrifice and humility.
In an interview with ZANIS, Mr. Yaluma, who is also Minister of Mines, said Mrs. Kapwepwe’s legacy of putting national interest first will live on for many generations to come.
He has since wished the Kapwepwe family God’s comfort during the mourning period.
