Happy 97th Birthday Kenneth Kaunda

Today is yet another important day as we celebrate the birthday of our nation’s founding father and the First Republican President, Dr Kenneth Kaunda.
As a nation, we admire your fight for freedom that led to the independence of not only the Republic of Zambia but other African nations too. Indeed the story of Africa can not be told without the mention of your name.
Join me in wishing Super Ken a Happy 97th Birthday, good health and many more years.
Zambia Celebrates you.
