Press Release

TCZ REQUESTS ALL TEACHERS TO OBSERVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE IN HONOUR OF THE LATE PRESIDENT DR KENNETH DAVID KAUNDA

Lusaka, 22nd June, 2021 - The Teaching Council of Zambia (TCZ) calls upon all Teachers Country-Wide to observe a solidarity moment of silence in honor of the Late Republican President Dr. Kenneth David Kaunda who passed away on Thursday 17th June, 2021.

As described by many people from within and outside the Country, apart from being a hero, freedom-fighter, liberator, peace-maker, humble Christian, mentor, musician, politician, Zambia’s founding father, among others terms , the late KK was a professionally trained and qualified teacher. Born on April 28th, 1924 at Lubwa Mission in Chinsali District, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia), Dr. Kaunda’s father was both a missionary and teacher. Interestingly, his mother was the first African woman to teach in colonial Zambia.

Dr. Kaunda attended the Munali Training Center in Lusaka from 1941 – 1943. After completion of his studies at the training center, he went on to teach at the upper primary school in Lubwa in 1943. He was also the head-teacher at the same school from 1944 – 1947. After he left the school in Lubwa, he founded the farmers’ cooperative on the Copperbelt. He also became a Mine welfare officer in 1948. He couldn’t stay away from teaching and from 1948 – 1949; he served as a Head-master at Mufulira upper school.

After independence in 1964, with Dr. Kenneth Kaunda as President, the Government prioritized the provision of education to its citizens. This was motivated by the lack of qualified human resource in the formal sector. As a result, both primary and secondary school were constructed across the country. Further, teacher – training colleges and trades training institutes were constructed. Further, teacher-training colleges and trades training institutes were constructed in almost all provincial towns and three years later, the University of Zambia was constructed. This led to increased access
to primary, secondary and tertiary education which most elderly Zambians of today directly benefited from. It is upon this foundation that the current education system is built. Therefore, the teaching fraternity in Zambia acknowledges and appreciates the great leadership and contributions Dr. Kaunda as a teacher and later as President with his Government did to our great nation and country, mother Zambia.

Therefore, the teaching fraternity wishes to join the family of the late KK, the Government of the Republic of Zambia and the people of Zambia at large to celebrate the life of our departed founding Father, Dr. Kaunda (Teacher) by observing a country-wide solidarity moment of silence on Wednesday 23rd June, 2021 at exactly 12:00 hours Zambia time. During the said moment, silent or shared prayers may be offered in honour and memory of the First Republican President Dr. Kenneth David Kaunda.

Stay safe and observe all the Ministry of Health guidelines. Covid – 19 is real.
