Demise of First President Kaunda

It is with the deepest sorrow that we learned yesterday of the demise of His Excellency Kenneth Kaunda, First President of the Republic of Zambia.
The Italian Embassy would like to convey to his family, to the Zambian government and to the people of Zambia the most sincere and heartfelt condolences on this sad occasion.
President Kaunda was an icon for the role he played as the founding father of this nation, for his contribution to the liberation struggles in the entire region and for his generosity in hosting refugees fleeing conflicts in their own countries. President Kaunda will always be fondly remembered for having graciously inaugurated the new chancery of the Italian Embassy in Lusaka in February 1989.
We mourn his passing and honor his memory, may his soul rest in eternal peace.
