FTJ would have turned 77 today, what do you remember him for?


LATE former president Fredrick Chiluba would have turned 77 years old today.

Born on April 30, 1943 in Kitwe, the charismatic former trade unionist beat long standing president Dr Kenneth Kaunda in the November 1991 presidential elections to become Head of State.

He ruled Zambia up to 2001 and died in June of 2011.

Chiluba can be said to have left both an economic and a political legacy.

Economically he started the process of ending Zambia’s socialist command economy.

He presided over various economic reforms. There are mixed feelings in Zambia on the effectiveness of the economic transformation initiated by the Chiluba government.

He helped broker a peace agreement to end the war in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo, but failed to stop the escalating crime and poverty in Zambia.

Chiluba opposed international economic institutions.
