President Hakainde Hichilema writes below…
We have met with Chief Mungaila of the Illa People of Namwala’s Maala area in Southern Province. We are accompanied by Mr Tilyenji Kaunda who is son to our Country’s Founding Father and President Dr Kenneth David Kaunda, Mr Andrew Banda who is son of Former President Rupiah Banda, Mr Kelvin Fube Bwalya among others.
We are grateful to their Royal Highnesses across the Country for the wise counsel they continue to give us.
During our courtesy call on His Royal Highness, we stated that recently we were in Chinsali District of Muchinga Province where we laid wreaths on the tombstone of freedom fighter Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe.
We stated that we have taken this approach in order to revive our history and also reunite our Country in order to foster economic development.
During our discussion, we also stated that tomorrow, Saturday 30th October, 2021, we will travel for yet another important International engagement that looks at the effects of climate change in-depth and this will be in the United Kingdom (UK), and that upon our return to Zambia, we will hold a ceremony in relation to our Country’s struggle for independence at Saamu lya Moomba in Bweengwa.
Our focus locally is to reunite and develop this beautiful country and when out there, our role among others is to grow our Country’s economic diplomacy.
May God Bless our fallen freedom fighters. Though they are gone, their works such as our independence lives on.
Long live freedom fighters! Long live our independence history!.
President of the Republic of Zambia.
