EIGHTEEN years after leaving office as President and his successor went to Parliament to demand that his immunity be lifted to facilitate prosecution, and eight years after his death, there is an effort not seen before to have Frederick Chiluba’s name restored.
That effort got its seal last week during Dr Chiluba’s memorial with his predecessor and erstwhile opponent Dr Kenneth Kaunda saying the second President’s contributions cannot be forgotten.
The first President said this after laying a wreath at Dr Chiluba’s mausoleum at Embassy Park.
Dr Chiluba’s memorial was held under the theme ‘Reconciliation, Forgiveness, Restoration and Justice’. http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
