Zambia’s first president, Kenneth Kaunda, not dead – aide
Contrary to reports, Zambia’s first president, Kenneth Kaunda is not dead, his office has said.
Kaunda’s Administrative Assistant Rodrick Ngolo, who refuted the reports, said Zambia’s founding President is still very much alive.
“We would like to inform all Zambians and the international community out there that Dr Kenneth Kaunda is fine and in good spirit” reads a statement from Ngolo.
“It is sad that some individuals can stoop so low to start spreading such despicable rumours” said Ngolo.
Kaunda will turn 97 on April 28, this year.
