Zambia’s founding President, Kenneth Kaunda, has died.
He was aged 97.
Earlier in the week, Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu and several other African leaders, had asked people to pray for Kaunda.
According to his aides, Kaunda, was being treated for pneumonia in a hospital in the capital, Lusaka.
Popularly referred to as KK, he led Zambia to independence, and was one of the last surviving figures from Africa’s post-Second World War anti-colonial movement.
