Thabiso Magodielo with President Kenneth Kaunda
A tribute by Thabiso Magodielo, Diplomatic Society’s Travel Specialist
18 June 2021
You fought the good fight and ran a good race.
I will always remember and cherish the warm welcome I received when visiting you at your home in Zambia. I will also remember your kindness, humility, energy and warmth. I will never forget how you prayed for me and entertained me with your musical talent, while we were planning the launch of the annual Kenneth Kaunda Golf Day.
You became a father figure to me when I discovered you shared the same birthday, date and year with my dad, bless his soul. So sentimental to think that you and my father would have been twins.
