Message of Condolence

The Council of Bishops on behalf of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God (PAOG) Zambia and the Pentecostal Assemblies of Africa (PAOA) Southern African region, wishes to express heartfelt condolences to the Kaunda family, His Excellency the President of the Republic of Zambia, Dr Edgar Chagwa Lungu and the nation at large on the passing of our first Republican President, Dr. Kenneth David Kaunda. We pray for comfort and strength during this trying time. We trust that the nation shall unite in mourning, celebrating the legacy and putting to rest our founding father.

When he graciously allowed us as a Council of Bishops to pay a courtesy call on him on the 7th May 2021, in honour of his 97th birthday, little did we know that within 40 days he would be bidding farewell to Zambia.

Dr. Kaunda will remain a towering icon of peace and hope for our nation, our beloved continent and the global community.

May his soul rest in peace as we appreciate his sacrifices and selfless leadership.

Bishop Dr Joshua HK Banda
Presiding Bishop- PAOG- Zambia &
President of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Africa (PAOA) Southern African Region
