Kamanga Opens Door for Legends
The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) is set to formalize its association with former footballers at next month’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) with a seat in the association’s structures.
Speaking during the 28th Gabon Disaster Memorial, FAZ president Andrew Kamanga said legends needed to be appreciated for their service to game.
Kamanga said recognition of legends should not be done in haphazard fashion but in a structured manner to be effective.
During the Gabon Memorial legends of various eras of the Zambian game turned up and played a memorial match in honour of the fallen heroes at National Heroes Stadium.
“We need to appreciate our legends who have served Zambian football at various times. To this end our executive will formalize the recognition of legends at next month’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) so that we have a basis of engaging them on various activities going on within FAZ,” Kamanga said.
And Zambia Coaches, Footballers and Multi-purpose Corporative Society representative Chiti Chola thanked FAZ for paving the way for the recognition of legends of the game.
“I would like to thank FAZ president Andrew Kamanga for embracing and supporting this organization. Thanks to government to allow us to play this game,” Chola said.
Some of the legends that turned up for the 28th Gabon Memorial are Elijah Litana, Kenneth Malitoli, Christopher Katongo, Sydney Mambwe, Andrew Tembo, Harry Milanzi, Mischeck Lungu, Emmanuel Zulu, Allan Kamwanga, Chris Tembo, Vesper Janza, Kingsley Musabula, Laughter Chilembi, Kabamba Kalande, and George Kapembwa.
