Kenneth Kaunde: 55 years since he won the Zambian elections

Images of Kenneth Kaunda who was born in Chinsali on 28 April 1924, the Northern Province of Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). Kaunda was a qualified teacher and taught in a number of schools for years. In 1951, he left teaching to become Organising Secretary of the Northern Rhodesian African National Congress for the Northern Province. In 1959, Kaunda broke away from the ANC and formed his own party, the Zambian National Congress (ZANC).

On 25 August 1964 Kaunda won the Zambian elections and became the first president of an independent Zambia. He remained in power until 1991, when he stepped down following pressure from his own people and the international community. He was succeeded by Frederick Chiluba. Since stepping down as president, Kaunda has been involved in various charitable organisations. Source: SA History Online
