Kaunda’s hospitalisation prompted the cancellation of a funeral service for his late wife, Betty.
Betty died at her daughter’s home in Harare last week.
“The family members have decided that the church service be postponed due to Kenneth Kaunda’s sudden illness. Dr Kaunda has… been hospitalised at the University Teaching Hospital,” said secretary to the cabinet Roland Msiska in a statement.
