New Kabwe Warriors chairman Andrew Kamanga has said he hopes to help turn around the fortunes at one of Zambia’s most supported clubs.
Kamanga was confirmed head of Warriors on Thursday and takes over from Evans Mutangama who resigned last week.
“I remain grateful to the sponsors who have entrusted me to lead the team they believe can take Kabwe Warriors back to the glory days,” Kamanga, who was until his appointment as chairperson a committee member.
Warriors have not won the league title since 1987 and their last cup triumph was in 2007 when they won the now defunct BP Top 8 Cup.
“We hope that we can focus on improving the fortunes of Warriors which still remains a big team in Zambia with a large following,” the Lusaka businessman said.
Meanwhile, bouncing back at the club is long-serving secretary Hayden Dingwall who will be Warriors vice-chairman.
