Statement In African Freedom Day

May 25, 2019

Zambian DNA joins the rest of Africa in celebrating the Africa Freedom Day.

Sata with Kaunda

We pay homage to our forefathers who scarified their lives to liberate the continent from the yoke of colonialism.

Whilst our forefathers fought for the continent’s political liberation, Africa is still grappling with high poverty levels, unemployment, disease, political conflicts and many other social and economic challenges.

However, there’s urgent need to invest in Africa’s economic emancipation such as reducing high poverty levels, unemployment, improving health care and education systems as well as securing lasting solutions to perennial political conflicts that force people to flee from their home countries as refugees in other countries.
