    • KK is vegetarian and a man of water. No alcohol or sodas on his menu. He has lived a very active and self disciplined life. Any one with a privilege of having worked losely for KK or knowinb the muzee well, understands why our endomitable KK remains in Great shape. Congrats to H.E President Kaunda (RtD). Wishing him many years of good health.

      Salutation!

    • The Legend Lives On … Long Live KK.

      A Good Heart Is Real Medicine & It Adds Years To One’s Life ~ B R Mumba, Sr.

      The above quote was inspired by watching KK’s life over the years. He fought for his own and after achieving that for the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise, he extended the fight to the rest of Africa.

      His reward??? A God-given long life for all to see. There’s something admirable about a pure heart.

      Epo mpelele,

      BRM

  2. Good as it may be/sound, this is the man who LOCKED up my late Dad in prison – 4 times during the Kapwepwe led political party UPP in the seventies/eighties. Today at 95, he still thinks he is the greatest leader of all time awe pembera first; your time is coming soon and there’s NOTHING you can do about it, enjoy…

    • @Nkope a bitter heart is not one God can accept. You must immediately, enter a thoughtful period during which you must resolve the hurt and harm your father’s treatment brought upon you. You must forgive. And remember to put your third party anger into its correct place. The experience was your father’s not yours.

      Be kind to your self and allow true happiness to heal you of the past.

    • What did your father do to be locked up 4 times? Zambia was surrounded by countries still under the york of colonialism and because UNIP spoke loudly against the colonists, some Zambians were willing to sell the country for 30 pieces of silver.
      Was your father one of that kind?

  4. What a blessed nation Zambia is with its founding father K K looking graciously in old age.
    What a pity Zambia has become with its current dysfunctional leadership, Zambians led by past legacy of resilience even in time of needlessly suffering. Long live Zambia, long live K K.

  5. Happy 95th birthday KK . Unfortunately not many Zambians live to see their 90’s birthdays due to poor health/lower life expectancy.

  9. @Nkope and @Anyoko, either you are children or just mare adults who only heard one side of the story. For Zambia to continue to remain united almost 55 years after independence, it was because of Dr Kaunda who went beyond tribes and reached out to the then 9 provinces and had cabinet ministers from across the country. Forgiveness is a virtue very few human beings have and I know so because 95% of the people that were locked up, were and wanted to use draconian measures to oust the founding father and his team. Let go brother @Nkope and we move on. His excellency has outlived almost all his critics in former presidents and former ministers. Lets give our founding father the respect he deserves and for him do get to 95 years. It is no gimmick or a fluke. He has just taken care of himself…

  10. Like Nelson Mandela, Kenneth Kaunda is one of the most dignified leaders of Africa. My advice to all current African leaders is that when making decisions ask yourself “What Would Mandela or Kaunda Do? If you do you will get to make decisions which are not biased but more fatherly and fair to those who voted for you and those who did not vote for you. Basically it means you are leader for all – not just those who voted for you. It is about being grown up. He is the only leader I know who does not have mansions and secret accounts in foreign countries. What you see is what you get.

  11. God Almighty rewards unreservedly if u do what is rightful before His eyes.Kk was/is a selfless leader who felt for others during his tenior with an iron hand of course.Talk of any humble educated man around,most of them are beneficiaries of free education of that time.He invested with all his mighty to mould Zambia from the scratch. What a great investment ever,n no wonder he’s gracefully reaping the fruits.Long live kk long live our father of our nation.what a humbling history to attach to out Zambia.

  12. Ba KK, please be magnanimous and ask people to donate to charities and not buy you these material things that have no place where you are headed to. Commend your Spirit to God and things that are above. Be blessed.
