Week 25 update

One death this week, former Zambian president Kenneth Kaunda: Kenneth Kaunda: Zambia's first president dies aged 97 - BBC News


Kenneth Kaunda was one of the pioneer leaders of a new Africa, as countries threw off colonialism in favour of independent statehood.

A man of great personal charm, he was hailed as a modernising force in the continent despite his initial rejection of the concept of multiparty democracy.

As a committed pan-Africanist, he began the task of building a new Zambia, free to determine its own way in international affairs.

But poor economic management caused his popularity to plummet, and he was voted out of office when free elections were held in 1991.

Kenneth David Kaunda was born on 28 April 1924 at a mission station near the border between what was then Northern Rhodesia and the Congo.

Honestly, it's worth reading the whole lot: Kenneth Kaunda: Zambia's independence hero - BBC News

I will give you some pictures though:

Between the gun-running, whalefucking, drugs, dubiously-aged floozies, and suspected murder rap and generally extravagant sleazebucketry, I always thought John Mcafee was the type of guy to die in a last stand Scarface-style shootout with Latin American Drug Cops. It seems a bit anticlimactic for him to quietly conk out using a prison bedsheet.
