There is need to preserve places that were used by freedom fighters during the independence struggle, acting President Inonge Wina has said.
She said it was through documenting and preserving such places that the younger generation could appreciate the freedom that the country is enjoying.
Mrs Wina said the freedom that the country enjoyed was gotten at a high cost hence the call for all people regardless of political affiliation to preserve it.
She said it was however unfortunate that some freedoms are being abused in the country especially by the young generation.
Mrs Wina said this in Kabompo when she visited the house where first President Kenneth Kaunda was held by the colonial masters.
And North-Western Province National Heritage Conservation Commission Regional Director Dennis Hambote said the commission had plans to turn the house into a museum.
He said the Kabompo house had been rehabilitated and that artifacts of the things that Dr. Kaunda used would soon be put in place.
And the only person who was allowed to feed Dr. Kaunda during the struggle Jonas Sakuwaha has called for recognition from government.
