Am a history maker says Peter Kaumba


Napsa Stars coach Peter “Abaleya” Kaumba has declared himself a history maker following his side’s Barclays Cup triumph on Saturday.

Kaumba’s Napsa won the 2012 Barclays Cup beating Power Dynamos 4-2 on penalties after a thrilling 4-4 draw in 120 minutes at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

In a post-match interview, the Arthur Davies great said he makes history wherever he goes.
Kaumba last won a major trophy as a coach in 2004 guiding Kitwe United to winning the defunct BP Top Eight in Lusaka.

“I am a history maker. I make history wherever I go,” Kaumba said.

He hailed his team for its resilience in the eight goal thriller final in Ndola.

“I wish to congratulate them (players). It will boost the morale of the players.

“It’s a very big achievement and it’s a CV for me,” he added.

On their way to pocketing K 200 million as Barclays Cup winners, Napsa eliminated three-time cup winners Zesco United and Red Arrows at the semi-final and quarter-final stages respectively.

    Peter Kaumba and Alex Chola are my favourite players of all time. Power Dynamos has produced some of the most legendary soccer players of all time. Ala Lucky Msiska, Linos Makwasa, Wisdom Chanca, Luka Lungu and now we are briewing another one in Mulenga Mukuka. Sorry they had to beat my team Power.

    For along time I have not been watching the local matches but for thias Barclays Cup I watched for 120 minutes until it went into penalties. I really enjoyed it. It was a Thriller of the Year. Goasl were just flowing. If all local teams could measure to that Standard then shortly we will forget foreign Teams like Mna U Chelsea. Real Madrid etc.I say BRAVO to Power and Napsa Stars.

    Peter Kaumba should be magnanimous enough to acknowledge the role played by Patrick Phiri in nurturing this team before he took over, there is nothing wrong in doing that! As for Power Dynamos, this should teach them a lesson not to discard a good coach like Kabole on ths first hurdle!!! Chambeshi clearly demonstrated lack of tactic when he substituted his play maker Mukuka Mulenga before confirming the victory, besides the season is long gone, what was he preserving his starts for????

    Congrats ba Kaumba but you should also realize that your predecessor Patrick Phiri played a role in assembling that team. Congrats!!

    “Abaleya” Peter Kaumba iz among the most celebrated playerz in Zambia. The worryin thing withe local game and probably abroad iz how gladly and quickly assistant coachez “take over” the reignz upon the dismisal of their bossez! The problem iz made worse here by the lack of proper laid down contractual termz of reference for the technical bench.

    Those were the days when I could go AWOL at ZNS in Ndola with my good friend the late Leonard Chikwayi to go and watch Power Dynamos in Kitwe. In Alex we saw a real computer at # 9 and all he needed was to dribble and give a perfect pass to Peter Kaumba and all hell just broke loose on the left flank! There will never be another Alex Chola and the legendary Godfrey Ucar Chitalu. May their souls rest in eternal peace and thanks for showing us how the game is played purely for the love of it and not for the money. For Peter Kaumba a talent was ended right at its peak!

    Peter Kaumba for me is really a good coach, he is good at identifying talent and assembling a formidable squard be at club level or national level. The last time Zambia boasted of a very good under 23 national team was when Peter Kaumba natured the likes of Collins Mbesuma, Isaac Chansa, Jacob Mulenga, Kennedy Mweene, and many other players we are depending on today to go and defend the AFCON 2013.

    I feel he should be taken back to the under 23 level to revamp the soccer standards at that level to create more players. He is really a history maker……
