KK asks for money to write his memoirs

First President of Zambia Dr. Kenneth Kaunda is appealing to citizens to help him with money to publish his memoirs.

Dr. Kaunda who is in Kenya where he attended the inauguration ceremony of that country’s new president Uhuru Kenyatta told ZNBC’s Effie Mpande that lack of money has hindered him from publishing his memoirs.

The First President said he would be happy if any Zambian come in to help him saying he would finish the publication of his memoirs by September this year.

Dr. Kaunda ruled Zambia from 1964 when the country go its Independence to 1991 when his party – UNIP was kicked out of power following the birth of Multi-party politics. He still stands as the longest serving President in Zambia as the tenure then was limited to ten following the coming up multi-partism.

During the launch of Third President Levy Mwanawasa’s biography book authored by journalist Amos Malupenga, Dr. Kaunda was urged to put his memoirs in a book while he was still alive.
