  1. You have made my day. You have reminded me of the Chitandikas, Kapwepwes of our time. Mainza Chona was the leader of UNIP which was later handed over to Kaunda, and some people say the Tongas are selfish, my Foot! I wish some people can learn from having a lean Government.

  2. Kaunda and Nkumbula drifted apart as Nkumbula became increasingly influenced by white liberals and was seen as being willing to compromise on the issue of majority rule. Nkumbula’s allegedly autocratic leadership of the ANC eventually resulted in a complete split. Kaunda broke from the ANC and formed the Zambian African National Congress (ZANC) in October 1958.

    ZANC was banned in March 1959. In June 1959, Kaunda was sentenced to nine months’ imprisonment, which he spent first in Lusaka, then in Salisbury (Harare). While Kaunda was in prison, Mainza Chona and other nationalists broke away from the ANC. In October 1959, Chona became the first president of the United National Independence Party (UNIP), the successor to ZANC. However, Chona did not see himself as the party’s main founder. When Kaunda was released from prison in January 1960 he was elected President of UNIP. In July 1961, Kaunda organized a violent civil disobedience campaign in Northern Province which consisted of burning schools and blocking roads.
