KK gets Mahatma Gandhi memento

By KALOBWE BWALYA
ZAMBIA’s High Commissioner to India, Judith Kapijimpanga, has presented a memento to first republican President Kenneth Kaunda from Gandhi Smriti, a museum where India’s independence icon Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated from.

The memento was first presented in New Delhi, India, when Zambia High Commission held a day’s exhibition of Dr Kaunda’s contribution to Africa and global peace efforts at a function that attracted diplomats from Malawi, Tanzania and the academia.
Ms Kapinjimpanga said, the younger generation should know that Dr Kaunda also put pressure in pushing for the release of South Africa’s Nelson Mandela from Roben Island prison.
Ms Kapinjimpanga however praised India’s Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Samiti Museum for taking time to celebrate the philosophy of Dr Kaunda – Humanism,
She noted that the event coincides with the 150th birthday anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi who largely inspired Dr Kaunda’s non-violent movement against colonial masters.
It is high time that the world remembered the sacrifice of Dr. Kaunda in liberating Zambia and the Southern African region.
And Dr. Kaunda thanked India and Mahatma Gandhi for the inspiration in the struggle for independence.
