The British government says late Kenneth Kaunda leaves an exemplary legacy as a unifier and mediator who worked hard to bring peace and unity in Zambia and Africa using his humanitarian approach.
British Minister for Africa James Duddridge says Dr. Kaunda’s humanitarian approach brought countries together which was evidenced by the formation of many organizations including the African Union and Commonwealth where he contributed greatly.
He said this when he visited the First Republican President’s funeral house at where he also signed the book of condolences.
“Using his humanitarian approach he was able to bring everyone together and form these organizations and his contribution was central in creating these organizations” he said.
He said Zambia and Britain can emulate Dr. Kaunda’s exemplary life and challenge themselves and do better in strengthening ties in taking the relationship between the two nations forward.
And British High Commissioner to Zambia Nicholas Woolley said Dr. Kaunda will be remembered as a mediator who helped countries put their differences aside and come up with resolutions.
Mr. Woolley cited the incident in which Dr. Kaunda negotiated for the release of British National Daphne Parish who was arrested in Iraq in 1989 in Iraq as an example of Dr. Kaunda’s life as a trusted partner and mediator.
We thank you for the thoughts and kind words. He was a great man who stood for great things. Unfortunately the upnd diasporan asylum seekers who you are keeping for us abroad think otherwise and detest anything patriotic. We don’t know what you are feeding them? Maybe old people shlt
What’s this moron Emmanuel doing in Lusaka …he thinks he is acting minister of Foreign Affairs now!!
Minister for Africa???????????? WHY this Rubbish and why are we accepting them to use us.
Let’s not just keep talking about him but
Emulate and practice what he left behind.
Let’s compare our leaders with KK and see
If they are leading similar lives.
Today the UK based troll is thanking the “colonial master” …really laughable…the problem with trolling and being an impostor is you cannot keep track of what you posted in the past.
Tarino correction, they are our former colonial masters whilst to you as a upnd diaspora who is living under their rule there abroad, they are technically your current colonial master
Tarino your thinking is very shallow. I expect a lot from you
KK was a remarkable man in his strive for Independence for the Zambian people as far as I am aware he brought all Zambians in a united front times were tough for Zambia and it’s people but the One Zambia One Nation ?? Still stands today. Kaizer Zulu I find your remarks totally uncalled for and very rude to your fellow Zambians. Often when I read what you say it is aggressive and violent towards other political party’s,people have the right to vote who they want in Government. Education is a good way to advise people not threats and foul language and blaming the UK for Zambians living here and we are NOT brain washing them Sir if at all possible hold your thoughts what will be will be .
COLONIAL MASTERS WERE KINDER TO US THAN THIS CURRECT GOVERNMENT
BUT I SUPPOSE HUNGER, CORRUPTION, SUPPRESSION, AND A FAILING ECONOMY IS THE NORM FOR US NOW
SOME ARE BORN INTO IT SO THEY KNOW NO DIFFERENCE
Minister for Africa is a deputy minister in the Foreign Office. That is whom the UK government has sent to KK’s funeral. Not a single member of the Royal Family. That is how little the UK government thinks about KK.
#9 who came from Zambia to Prince Phillips funeral???As soon as I found out I was in touch with Panji,Mr Ngolo,and several high ranking Zambia Army Generals. All the British are not that bad my friend.
Why are we so concerned about what UK thinks about us…..even in death we still want sympathy from bazungu….why not report on what other African leaders are saying about KK…..2021 and we still behave like we are under colonial rule
