Patriotic Front Riverside Ward Councillor Christopher Kangombe has proposed the creation of the Michael Sata Academy for Political Leadership and Governance that will train young people in the ideals the former Zambian president stood for.
Mr Kangombe, who is a councillor in Kitwe's Kwacha Constituency, says President Sata dedicated his public life to providing political leadership from being a ward councillor up the ladder until becoming Republican President and the only way Zambia can honour him is by setting up an academy named after him.
He adds that President Sata represents what most of people want to achieve in the quest to provide political leadership in Zambia
Mr Kangombe says the people of Zambia deserve good leaders for the years to come and he believes that Zambia as a country needs to start preparing young leaders through effective leadership training.
|The book Kangombe wrote|
"We cannot preserve history without preserving the legacies of the men and women who made that same history. Michael Sata has secured his place in history and we have to honour the role he has played by establishing an academy that will train many more young Zambians into leaders of tomorrow.," he added.
In 2011, Kangombe wrote a book on the role of students in society and President Sata wrote its foreword.
President Sata died on 28th October, 2014 in London and he will be buried at Embassy Park in Lusaka on 11th November, 2014.
