Kaunda, who requested to shake hands with all the participants from the five countries, Kenya, Gambia, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia, said there is need for African leaders to speak with one voice.
Kaunda said this when he officially opened the tournament at Olympic Youth Development Centre (OYDC) in Lusaka yesterday.
He said Africa is one and wished the best player to emerge victorious regardless of the country he or she comes from.
“In Zambia, we say One Zambia, One Nation. We need to be united as leaders,” Kaunda said.
The participants sang a birthday song for Kaunda and presented various gifts.
And National Sports Council of Zambia chairperson Mwamba Kalenga said Kaunda has done a lot for the country and having him at the tournament was an honour.
“Today, we have one of the best moments in sport. We are blessed to have the father who brought us up in a good way. I urge you participants to bring up your children in a good manner,” Kalenga said.
OYDC director Clement Chileshe said he regards Kaunda as the number one sports personality because of the former president’s support to sport.
Scrabble Association of Zambia president Sydney Kalema said the tournament is one of the best organised.
