Kenneth Kaunda to be honoured for Africa’s independence struggle, says AU chief

The former President of Zambia, Kenneth Kaunda will be honoured by the African Union due to his contribution to Africa’s independence struggle.
Last month, the Zambian government expressed concern that Kenneth Kaunda was the only African leader who fought for the liberation of the continent but has not been honoured by the African Union through a statue at its headquarter in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. African Union’s Commission Chairperson, Mousa Faki Mahamat said the role that the 95-year-old Kenneth Kaunda played was never in dispute and that Africa will remain grateful for this sacrificial role.
