Zanu-PF cannot be isolated from African politics - Dr Kaunda
Published: 08 January 2012 (633 Views)
Dr Kaunda said the Zanu PF cannot be isolated from African politics as the party is a major player in the liberation of most African countries.

Speaking at the ANC centenary celebrations dinner for invited Head of State and Government, Former Zambian President, Dr Kenneth Kaunda defended President Robert Mugabe on his stance on the land issue, saying it was the west who reneged as the Lancaster House Agreement clearly spelt out that the land should be returned to the indigenous people.

Dr Kaunda said Mugabe is not to blame for bilateral standoff with Britain as the former coloniser back-tracked on the issue of land.

He said the British Labour Party that came into power in the late nineties disregarded the whole agreement leaving President Mugabe with no choice, but to repossess the land which is the birthright of all Zimbabweans.

He said Africa should emulate Zimbabwe in their black empowerment drive which Mugabe and his party are spearheading.

The former Zambian President however warned the ANC leader, Jacob Zuma against ignoring the wishes of his people on the land issue and ownership of the mines.
