I first met Kenneth Kaunda in the 1940s, when we were in our early 20s. This was at the Kabulonga Club in Lusaka, the only place where black and white people could meet with ease in Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). It was also the one place where Africans could legally consume European-style beer.
Kaunda, however, drank no alcohol. He was an intensely religious young man.
