KK hospitalised


Zambia’s first president Kenneth Kaunda has been admitted to Maina Soko Medical Centre in Lusaka for medical treatment.

Administrative Assistant in the Office of the First President, Rodrick Ngolo said in a statement that Dr. Kaunda has been unwell.

“The Office and family of the First President wish to inform the general public that His Excellency Dr. Kenneth D. Kaunda, First President of the Republic of Zambia, has been unwell and was admitted in hospital at Maina Soko Medical Centre,” Mr. Ngolo said in a brief press statement.

He said Dr. Kaunda is therefore requesting for prayers from all Zambians and the international community as he receives medical attention.

Mr. Ngolo said the medical team at Maina Soko is doing everything possible to ensure that Dr. Kaunda recovers.


  1. Get well soon Super Ken. And we will forever be highly indebted to you, you have done so much for this country more than what your successors have done combined.


  3. Oh God we put it all in your hands. Wash your blood on our father and healing hand. In the name of jesus christ Amen

  4. Since when did we had a press statement from government about Dr Kaunda’s Health. I hope it’s not a sign ,something similar to what happened in 2011. I don’t trust these guys anymore.

    Anyway…those are my thoughts

    KZ is admitted at kanyama clinic for ugliness
    THIS HAS TO BE THE BEST POST OF THE DAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. The update is written with very unprofessional language. It’s either the story is false or someone is trying to change the situation as it is. How do you write that “the big man is asking for prayers from citizens and international community”? All you do is ask that we all include the big man in our prayers.

  7. Amos 4:12 says, ‘Prepare to meet your God.’ Regardless of who we are here on earth and no matter what age we are, we all must prepare to meet our Maker, whether we believe He exists or not. The Great Assize is coming. Hopefully, KK knows whom he has believed and deposited his life with Him.

  8. These LT, of course doctors want him to recover. Unless PF wants to use KK funeral for campaign.
    KK hang-in there, God is powerful.

  9. 97 years. A life well and fully lived.
    A life to be celebrated. Am excellent life, comfort and travel, power and exercise of authority, to today.

    I desire recovery, and also desire celebrating his life.
    It is God who allows both. And to Him only be the glory

  10. Many Zambians truly feel for KK not feeling well and do wish him a quick recovery! I hope it has nothing to do with the carelessness of politicians who after galivanting around the country to try and score points have gone visiting KK! KK is a jewel that in the current times needs the strictest protection for personal wellness! Honest prayers will help towards his enhanced recovery, I wish him well.

  11. Praying for your recovery our father of the nation. In Jesus’s might name we ask for his healing power. Amen.

  12. We wish Kk quick recovery though old age
    Has no recovery.He has lived a good life and
    Led good examples to upcoming leaders.He
    Had his good rule as well as some weak points.During his rule Ministers did not
    Accumulate alot of wealth as it is now.

  13. Time is not with him now, the Scriptures say there is time for everything and says that man because of his sin, shall not live beyond 120 years.

    I pray he remembers and acknowledges His God, God is willing and merciful to forgive and He will be welcomed in His Kingdom.

    This is the best we can do for KK.
