CCPC’s Message of Condolences on the Passing of Zambia’s First Republican President
2021-06-18The Board, Management and Staff of the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) wish to extend their heartfelt condolences to the Kaunda family and all Zambians on the passing of Zambia’s founding father and 1st Republican President, His Excellency Dr. Kenneth David Kaunda, who passed away on 17th June 2021 after a short illness.
As we celebrate the life of Dr. Kaunda, we recognize his contribution to the independence struggle, not only of Zambia, but Southern Africa and Africa as a whole. He believed that Zambia would not truly be independent if its neighbours were not, and with this resolve he fought for freedom, love and peace. He shall be greatly missed but we are strengthened by the fact that he was a God fearing man and he rests with our Father in heaven.Dr. Kaunda said, “I believe that man must be the servant of a vision which is bigger than himself, that his path is illumined by God’s revelation and that when he shows love towards his fellow men, he is sharing the very life of God;who is love.
We believe that these were his convictions and he lived up to them. We too, would do well to emulate and live by such a great resolve in our individual lives. Only then will we truly remain ONE ZAMBIA, ONE NATION. May the Soul of our gallant father Rest in Peace.
