President Edgar Lungu has congratulated First Republican President Kenneth Kaunda for being honoured by the African Union with a special award for his immense contribution to the liberation of the African continent and its people.
President Lungu says Dr. Kaunda is a living legend and a true statesman who contributed greatly to the liberation of not just Zambia, but many other African states.
The President has congratulated Dr. Kaunda on behalf of Zambians and on his own behalf for being recognized with an award by the African Union.
He says the recognition is well deserved considering how much Dr. Kaunda did for the African continent.
President Lungu says Dr. Kaunda’s contribution to the liberation of African states cannot be quantified.
The President has prayed for Dr. Kaunda’s good health and asked the nation to continue praying for the iconic former President.
This is contained in a statement issued to ZNBC News by the President’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations, Isaac Chipampe.
