Tilyenji Kaunda (born 1954) is a Zambian politician who is the President of the United National Independence Party (UNIP).[1] He became party leader in 2001, succeeding Francis Nkhoma. His father, former Zambian President Kenneth Kaunda, was the President of UNIP from 1960 to 2000.

Kaunda stood as a candidate for the office of President of Zambia in the 2001 general election. In 2006, he served as chairman of the short-lived United Democratic Alliance (UDA), which floated Hakainde Hichilema as a coalition candidate for president. Kaunda and the UNIP backed MMD candidate Rupiah Banda for the presidency in the 2008 presidential by-election. Kaunda ran again for president in the 2011 general election but only garnered 0.4% of votes cast.[2]
