Africa as a continent is rich in the colonial history. Apart from Liberia and Ethiopia, all the remaining part of Africa was colonized by European powers namely Britain, Italy, Portugal, Spain, France and Germany.
Ghana was the first African country to gain her independence from British colony in the year 1957. Most of the countries were declared independent in the years 1960's. This followed the pressure from the United Nations (UN) to the colonizing powers to uplift colonialism.
Kenneth David Kaunda was the first President of the Republic of Zambia. He spearheaded and championed for the independence of his country. This led to the gaining of her independence in 1964.
President Kaunda ruled Zambia from 1964 to 1991 where he retired from politics. He has recently celebrated his 97th birthday on Wednesday having born on April 28, 1924.
It is with great honor to celebrate such an African son of the soil who stood firm and fought for the liberation and freedom.
