President Zuma sends condolences to the Republic of Zambia

The President of the Republic of South Africa, His Excellency Mr Jacob Zuma,  has, on behalf of the Government and people of South Africa, sent a message of condolences to the Government and people of the Republic of Zambia following the passing of His Excellency President Michael Chilufya Sata.

President Sata belongs to the generation of leaders produced by Zambia during the colonial times and gallantly pursued the anti-colonial struggle. His death reminds the people of South Africa of Zambia‘s immeasurable sacrifice and the sterling leadership role that Zambia played in ridding the African continent of the yoke of colonial domination and apartheid rule.

President Zuma said: “On my own behalf, and on behalf of the Government and the people of the Republic of South Africa, I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the entire Sata family as well as the Government and people of Zambia.”

President Zuma said President Sata, who was Zambia’s fifth President, would be remembered for his commitment to improving the lives of the people of Zambia.

“President Sata supported  robust economic transformation of the country, which led to positive economic growth and increased investment in Zambia. His contribution to the work of bodies such as the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the African Union (AU) would be sorely missed,” said President Zuma.
