Pay KK’s K3.5bn debt

Government has a moral obligation to absorb all accrued legal bills incurred by Zambia’s first Republican President Kenneth Kaunda, says a concerned citizen Nason Msoni.
Bailiffs are now set to pounce on the former President following a court order.
Mr Msoni said these legal bills were as a result of the state persecuting the former head of state.
He said state sponsored terrorism in the guise of investigation of corruption on former presidents was driving former Presidents into near bankruptcy.
“The state of affairs which Dr Kaunda finds himself in is unacceptable and the state by extension and the individuals involved and responsible for the ill-treatment of the former President especially those who are still surviving owe him an apology.
“Dr. Kaunda was shot at by our police and as if that was not enough Dr. Kaunda was arrested and incarcerated in the dreaded Mukobeko maximum prison for condemned persons on Christmas Day.
Mr Msoni said later Dr Kaunda was put under house arrest., adding that society should avoid this sort of ill treatment of men that shouldered the national burden by respecting them and cherishing their contribution.
He said that it was a taboo to subject young boys and girls in investigative wings to harass elderly statesmen in the name of investigation for corruption.
Mr Msoni said the arrest of former President Rupiah Banda was sickening and a sad state of affairs.
The former presidential aspirant for the opposition MMD said that running statecraft in this style and manner for the sole purpose of settling old scores against opponents was a shallow way of running government.
“It is not too late for the PF government to revisit this straightforward matter. Nowhere else in the SADCC regional countries are former presidents treated like this.
“The legitimate question we should be asking ourselves is what do outsiders think of Zambia when we subject our former presidents to this kind of humiliation?” Msoni asked.

  1. The problem is that we Zambians casually allow wrong things to happen. We must remember that we are the electorate who have the mandate to stop any government from doing anything that is not in national interest. Regarding stripping off immunity of every former President in Zambia …….. Lets face it. We are the laughing stock of Africa. Where else does this sort of thing happen, President after President ???

  2. Msoni… adding more soil to an ant hill KK will never be broke in his life time.

  3. While I agree with you, but you must know that Presidents also must behave because they were just given a chance to be on the Presidency. They should not misbehave or else they will always be followed by the arm of the law.
