South African flags are flying half mast as the country observes ten days of mourning in honour of the late Kenneth Kaunda – a towering African giant.

The 97-year-old Kaunda was the founding president of Zambia. He is being remembered for his unwavering support of fellow Africans in their fight against colonialism.

President Cyril Ramaphosa says Kaunda’s leadership was a source of enormous inspiration and resilience for the people of the southern African region and the rest of the African continent.

He says that KK as he was affectionately known devoted himself and the people of Zambia to supporting liberation movements in their quest for independence and freedom and it is in this context, he is the father of South Africa’s liberation.
