The former President and first president of the Republic of Zambia, Kenneth Kaunda, 97 years old hospitalized at the beginning of the week, for pneumonia died this Thursday. Claiming of socialism and close to Moscow, he led the country for 27 years, largely under one-party rule. It has hosted many movements fighting for independence or equality for blacks in other countries in the region, including the South African party of the African National Congress (ANC). We talked about this with the Director of the Communication and Information Department at Gecamines in the Democratic Republic of Congo and History Teacher, Etienne Mukalay, who talks to us about this great man who left his mark on the continent.
