DR Kenneth Kaunda has asked diplomats accredited to Zambia to inform their governments about the good things President Michael Sata is doing for Zambians.

Speaking at the launch of the national tree-planting programme in Chongwe’s Kanakantapa area on Thursday, Dr Kaunda said he was impressed with President Sata’s performance.

“Comrade secretary general of PF, you as our minister, I am saying tell our leader Michael Chilufya Sata that what you are doing, I appreciate greatly.

But it needs more than just action programmes, we need action. If you don’t act now, we are completely finished as a nation. So, listen to my leader here, all of you present,” he said.

“I am asking the ambassadors and high commissioners to inform their governments what he is going to say to us this afternoon because we need your support to fight this deadly war on the Zambian soil.”

And justice minister Wynter Kabimba, who represented President Sata, said trees should be harnessed well as they represented one of the most important components of the ecosystem.

Kabimba, who is also PF secretary general, said trees contributed to poverty alleviation by sustaining sound and productive ecosystems for agriculture and water development.

“Zambia’s emissions of greenhouse gases through man-induced deforestation are high, hence our government’s resolve to embark on a massive afforestation and re-afforestation programme. This is meant to contribute to the reduction of global warming caused by man-induced deforestation. It is Zambia’s contribution to this global agenda,” he said.

Kabimba said Zambia was experiencing some of the negative effects of climate change.

“The national tree-planting programme that our government has embarked on cannot succeed without sound forest management and protection practices.

To address this, the government will strengthen the Ministry of Lands, natural resources and environmental protection by restructuring the forestry department, so that it can effectively and efficiently spearhead the implementation of the programme,” he said.
Kabimba said more than 200,000 jobs would be created once the programme was fully operational.

Earlier, chieftainess Nkomeshya Mukamambo II, bemoaned the high rate of deforestation in her chiefdom.
She asked the government to engage the locals in the implementation of the programme.

And Chongwe member of parliament Sylvia Masebo said her constituency has had its share of deforestation arising from charcoal burning.

  5. What has happened to the old Kaunda family? This is the reason why it is always better for a man to go first instead of a wife like the case is with the Kaundas. The man can not even give any direction to his family, so what has he got to offer to Zambia?
    It is sad that the man has been reduced to a political door mat. This Masebo and Kabimba have even started boking each other while they leave the old man waiting in their car.

  6. This is a strange world. How come that KK has abundoned his son to run the affairs of UNIP. OLiver Tambo was born and died as ANC, former Presidents of Mozambique (Chisano), Namidia (Sam Nujoma) and Mandela of South Africa have all sustained membership and actively supported their respective parties that brought them to national, regional and international fame. What has gone wrong with KK?

    • It is desire for power through dictatorship, handouts and a corrupt heart that KK habours. These are controlling his actions. He cannot tbe compared to these others you have mentioned. The old man has simply lost principles.

  12. KK has become a doormat for Sata- how sad indeed. I had a bit of respect for him but all that is gone now

  13. Panji, Musata, Kambarage, Kaweche, Cheswa, Tilyenji!!! one of you please save your poor father from the fire he has brought unto himself by telling him to stay at home and enjoy his retirement. At the rate he is going, he may end up seriously disgraced, to some extent he already is disgraced. Why does he want to be used by Sata and his lot, to clean up for them? Unfortunately for all of them this KK project is backfiring. If only they could wake up from slumber and see!

    • Imagine! What type of rubbish is that? This old man has lost it all. I hear he is up to something may he wishes to take over from sata. I don’t understand him a bit. Maybe jelita would explain this to me.

  17. Surely if you have recently lost your wife to whom you were married for over 60 years, claimed to love and had a football team of children with, it would only be respectful to retire from public life to grieve for her instead of advertising your senility and reminding people why you were so hated in 1991. If I destroyed a once vibrant economy the way KK did, I would have done the honorouble thing and committed suicide decades ago.
