The 97-year-old took the helm of power after the country gained independence from Britain in October 1964 and ruled the Africa country for 27 years.

Kaunda initially became autocratic and banned all opposition parties. He eventually ceded power in the first multi-party elections in 1991, losing to trade unionist Fredrick Chiluba.
