In his 90th birthday message to Dr Kaunda, Mr. Banda has observed that the Zambian Golden Jubilee, to be celebrated this year, is also a befitting recognition of the contributions and sacrifices that the founding Head of State made for Zambia.

Dr Kaunda’s 90th birthday falls on April 28.

Mr. Banda says his ascendancy to the Presidency of Zambia would not have been possible without Dr Kaunda’s wise counsel.

  1. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries
    that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having
    side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
