Kelvin Kampamba stars for Al Nasr

Published

CHIPOLOPOLO midfielder Kelvin Kampamba had a good start to life in Libya, bagging a man of the match award on his debut for his new side Al – Nasr SC in a 2-all draw against Al Akhdar SC.

Last month, Kampamba left Zesco United to join the Libyan side in a move that left a number of followers confused.

However, it seems the talented midfielder has taken to the Libyan league like fish to water, taking little time to introduce himself.

On Thursday, he made an assist in the dying minutes of the game, teeing the ball for skipper Ali Salama to who leveled the score with his team trailing 2-1.

Meanwhile in Tanzania, Chipolopolo midfielder Clatous Chama scored a goal to help his side Simba SC to a 1 – all draw against Ice Cream makers Azam.

In the match, Prince Dube gave Azam the lead in the 15th minute but Chama left it late to score a leveler in the 90th minute and rescue a point for Simba.

Solwezi Stadium works not fully complete

FOLLOWING a public backlash over the poor rehabilitation works at Solwezi’s Independence Stadium, Football House has clarified that the works are not 100 percent complete.

At the weekend, Netizens had a field day mocking the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) while others were taken aback when pictures of the ‘rehabilitated’ stadium circulated online.

The rehabilitation works at the Solwezi Independence Stadium cost US$300,000.

“We wish to set the record straight over the works on the Independence Stadium in Solwezi. Just like we did for the already completed David Kaunda Stadium, we will have an official handover of the Independence stadium in Solwezi with FIFA representatives, government officials, local authorities and FAZ. The handover will be preceded by a thorough inspection to be done by all the stakeholders,” FAZ general secretary Reuben Kamanga said.

Kamanga said the contractor was still working on final touches for the overall infrastructure while the pitch installer had completed their work.

“We also wish to inform members of the public that the bulk of the US300,000 for this project was allocated to the installation of the natural pitch. The amounts allocated for the FIFA project was purely for rehabilitation and not for erecting a new stadium. We thought we should clarify on that aspect so that the publics` expectation can be managed.”

FAZ through FIFA was awarded USD1.5 million for five projects that include four provincial stadia and one accommodation center.

He said, “We have no doubt that the team will be in a position to give their best when they resume action next month and beyond,”
