President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA has honored several Zambians who have excelled in their individual capacities as well as those who performed acts of bravery to save others. This was during the National Honors and Awards Investiture Ceremony held at State House in Lusaka as the country celebrates Independence.

Others honoured were veteran broadcaster and diplomat FRANK MUTUBILA and SOCRETS KABINDA, a resident of Mumbwa who risked his life by saving the lives of four juveniles when Mumbwa was flooded after a dam collapsed last year.
