Fifth Republican president Michael Chilufya Sata's memoirs have been documented in a book co-authored by one of his own - Mubanga.
According to the advertisement, the book will be launched on the late president's birthday, July 7.
BELOW IS THE SYNOPSIS OF WHAT READERS CAN LOOK OUT FOR
To some he was a father, a friend, a nationalist dedicated to service; to others a ruthless venomous viper, an enigma, a shrewd populist politician.
Yet in all his giving and misgivings, it is irrefutable even by his adversaries that he was a very passionate and determined man whose shadow left an indelible and relentless mark.
Raised as a commoner in the peripherals of Zambia's elusive egalitarian society, he sprouts like a weed by the wayside that grows fruits to be enjoyed by many.
He fell in love with the nation but before the nation could fall in love with him, he had traversed a path full of disappointments and setbacks whose pilgrimage makes the frame of this book. His farewell words-'cry for yourself, do not cry for me'-
In all his life time he kept knocking and asking until even the most unlikely of doors opened and thus enshrined his name in the book of Zambia's political reckonings as one who walked the talk.
He will forever be remembered as Zambia's fifth Republican President who rose from the ashes every time he failed until he conquered.
Note: Book to be formally launched on 7th and 8th July 2017 at Manda Hill Mall, Lusaka. Details to come: Facebook Interaction forum:
