Former Zambia Presidents shame Malawi


Former Zambian President Dr. Kenneth Kaunda popularly known as KK continued with lovely fatherly advice for Africans to embrace peace when he spiced up a wedding event of her granddaughter Gwebe by singing his widely known song of unity.

In the song KK urges all Africans to walk together with one spirit. Sung Kaunda: “Tiyende pamodzi ndi mtima umodzi / Tiwoloke Zambezi ndi mtima umodzi / Tiwoloke Limpopo ndi Mtima umodzi / Africa tiye.

Loose translation of the message is: Let’s walk together with one spirit / let’s cross Zambezi with one spirit / let’s cross Limpopo with one spirit / Africa let’s move.

And proving true statesmanship, another former president Rupia Banda also attended the function. The wedding therefore registered three high profile figures in Southern Africa were present in the names of Malawi President Professor Arthur Mutharika and the two former Zambian Leaders, Kaunda and Banda.

The spirit shown by the former Zambian Presidents has put to shame Malawians whose leaders do not see each other eye to eye.

Kaunda’s grand-daughter married Jimmy Komeza, a Rwandese, and at the reception a special Rwanda dance added colour and it was marvellous to witness multi-lingual communication like English, Chinchewa, French, chiBemba, chiTonga and chiNyanja,

Jimmy and Gwebe are based in Malawi and the reception took place at the Bingu International Conference Centre in capital Lilongwe, Saturday night.

The wedding reception brought together three high profile figures in Southern Africa namely, President Professor Peter Mutharika, Malawi leader, and two former Zambian leaders, Kenneth Kaunda and Rupiah Banda, who were joined by multitudes from Malawi, Zambia and Rwanda in wishing the newly wedded couple well.
