AWARD-WINNING reggae musician Maiko Zulu has implored citizens to emulate late President Michael Sata’s spirit of love and dedication towards improving the welfare of vulnerable people.
Meanwhile, Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM) president Njoya Tembo said Mr Sata’s humility and resilience are worth emulating by youth leaders.
Speaking when donating an assortment of medical supplies to Kamwala Health Centre in memory of President Sata who died on October 28 last year, Zulu said President Sata will be remembered as a leader who dedicated his time to improving the welfare of the needy.
“Today marks a year since Mr Sata died and in the spirit of giving, which he (Mr Sata) also demonstrated, we also decided to give an assortment of detergents, medical supplies which include over 3,600 condoms to the anti-retroviral therapy (ART) section here at Kamwala Clinic,” Maiko, who was accompanied by his wife Sister D (Dambusa Nkhata), said.
The artiste, who took time to interact with patients on ART, said President Sata will be missed for having a heart for the marginalised such as those discriminated against because of being HIV-positive.
The donation was courtesy of members of the Maiko Zulu WhatsApp group and Facebook page.
And receiving the donation, acting sister-in-charge of the health centre Phumile Kambole said the gesture was timely.
“We are grateful for this donation. We actually ran out of condoms,” Kambole said.
And in a Facebook posting, ZAM president Njoya Tembo late President Sata’s humility and resilience are worth emulating by the youth.
Tembo said the late President will also be remembered for introducing the hologram to safeguard the incomes of artists.
“He was a loving, humble, visionary, resilient and action-oriented leader who as youth leaders we need to emulate and would be missed by all,” the posting read.
