President Edgar Lungu has paid tribute to first republican President Dr Kenneth Kaunda for the immense sacrifices he and his fellow freedom fighter made to attain Zambia’s political freedom.
The president has hailed Dr Kaunda as a living icon who should be emulated by the young generation by embracing the good values that he has always stood for.
In his birthday message to Dr Kaunda on his 93rd birthday, president Lungu thanked God for sustaining Dr Kaunda for many years.
The republican president has since advised the nation not to lose sight of the unity and love that the first republican president has always preached under the one Zambia one nation motto if peace and stability is to continue.
This is contained in a press statement issued by special assistant to the president for press and public relations Amos Chanda.
