The Higher Education Authority’s (HEA) Management and Staff would like to wish the Founding President of the Republic of Zambia, Dr. Kenneth David Buchizya Kaunda, our beloved K.K., a happy, blessed and healthy 96th Birthday.

Your Excellency, HEA is grateful for the foundation that you laid for, not only Zambia, but higher education in Zambia, a foundation that saw the formation of the first university in Zambia, the University of Zambia; a foundation that saw many Zambians get free education, most of whom could not afford it; a foundation upon without which, Zambia’s education system would not have thrived; and, a foundation upon which we continue to build.

Your Excellency, may today be a reinvigorating reminder of the great hope that lies before our great nation even as we celebrate, reflect and rejoice your 96th Birthday.
