Zesco United Win….Finally


Zesco United gave their new chairman Kenneth Muteto something to smile about with their first Super Division win of the season.

The win comes after a string of four draws since the start of the season that cost the positions of ex-chairman Bruno Wamuniyma and three other club executive committee members including second assistant coach Dabid Chilufya.

Technical advisor Andre Mtine resigned on the eve of the sackings and ironically his position was abolished by the clubs sponsors Zesco Limited on Friday after the sackings.

Back to the field of play today at the Trade Fair Ground, the game’s lone goal was scored by midfielder Kondwani Mtonga to see Zesco rise from 14th to 9th place.

At Arthur Davies, Power Dynamos drew 1-1 with Lusaka Dynamos and rise one point up and take over the table on 13 points ahead of Nchanga Rangers on 12.

Rangers were not in action because opponents Zanaco are away in Algeria on Champions League duty.

Felix Nyeande scored for Power while Patson Kaimana was on target for Dynamos.

Elsewhere, Red Arrows lost 3-2 away to Choma Eagles with Dude Phiri scoring a brace for the visitors while Aubrey Zulu getting one himself and Lewis Macha scoring one for the home side.

National Assembly beat Kabwe Warriors 3-1 away in Kabwe courtesy of goals from  Mwape Mwelwa, Patson Kapumpa and Mundia Mukaku.

Defender Bronson Chama scored Warriors goal.

In Chililabombwe, Konkola Blades and Roan United drew 1-1 at Konkola stadium.

On Sunday, City of Lusaka host Forest Rangers and Nkwazi await Nkana.

  1. It is very extremely disappointing for Kabwe Warriors to lose 3 – 1 at home. This is not the first time the team has lost at Rail Ground this season. George Lwandamina is not the right person to be appointed coach of the CHAN team, the man has failed to perform at Warriors and you give him a high profile job, totally unacceptable. As staunch supporters of Kabwe Warriors, it really saddens me to look at the current inconsistencies of the team, Why cant warriors appoint a new credible coach and go out for a talent search to beef up the team. Rail Systems of Zambia should own up their corperate pledges by fully supporting sports and injecting much needed cash at rail grounds. Their the biggest culprit in Kabwe Warriors poor performance.

  2. Majestic No.2. Kindly put George Kunda in Goal, he seems to know everything (whats happening around us). He can know where or the direction the striker will kick the ball to. That is if George is alive, cause at the moment we dont know whether we have a DEAD VP or a LIVE one.
