Kenneth Kaunda bowed out of office after his long tenure in Zambia, when he lost the election in 1991. Some of the letters and messages he received at that time, from all over the world and various walks of life, are presented here, together with an analysis. The letters raise many issues concerning Kaunda's positive contribution to Zambia, Africa, and the rest of the world: not least the view that he was the person responsible for the peace and good will that reigned in Zambia during the transition to multi-party politics. The book assesses whether the letters were more than conventional commiserations, and the conclusion is that they represented more. A final chapter examines how President Chiluba handled the 1996 elections, the manner of winning comparing unfavourably with Kaunda's conduct.
