2012-09-22 18:00

Lusaka - Zambia's ex-president Kenneth Kaunda was on Saturday hospitalised for an undisclosed ailment, forcing a requiem mass for his late wife to be cancelled, an official said.

"The family members have decided that the church service be postponed due to Kenneth Kaunda's sudden illness. Dr Kaunda has... been hospitalised at the University Teaching Hospital," said secretary to the cabinet Roland Msiska in a statement.

Kaunda's wife, Betty, died on Wednesday in Zimbabwe and the government has accorded her three days of national mourning.
The former first lady had been due to be buried on Sunday.

      Only the good die young. Which means that this bastard will probably live for ever.

      Is it really necessary to degrade the man - he is old and very sick - just lost his wife of many years.

    Zambian media are reporting that Vice President Guy Scott met with Kaunda at University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka and that the First President was tired and stressed by the activities surrounding the death of his wife Betty. Dr. Scott said President Kaunda should recover soon after he rests a bit.

    As an essential aid to ZIPRA, this twit was a grade A terrorist. I trust he will now have the ggod grace to 'spear in' pronto, complete with dangling handkerchief.

      tommo.too - 2012-09-24 02:58

      How strange you mention the handkerchief. I saw him at the king of Norways funeral with his handkerchief dangling. What does it symbolize?
