Nkana’s sponsors Mopani Copper Mines have installed CCTV cameras at Nkana Stadium following their U$450,000 upgrade of the venue to guard against vandals and hooliganism.

Nkana chairman John Chiwele said they will use the CCTV to full effect especially against hooliganism during matchdays that has blighted the clubs image over the years.

“It will probably take a few examples,” Chiwele said.

“People don’t come to games to cause trouble.

“Very few people come to games to cause confusion so it will probably take one or two examples and we intend to maintain discipline here.”

Mopani has also installed a new perimeter fence including jump seats in the old VIP area that will now be the VVIP area.

The old grandstand has bucket seats and has been converted into the VIP area.

A new training pitch has been laid in the old car park while a new concrete perimeter fence has been erected outside the legendary “Chitala” which has also received a makeover while maintaining its iconic red colour.

Mopani has also rehabilitated Nkana’s entire water and sewer systems and installed a new irrigation system for both the main and new training pitch.

Mopani Chief Executive Officer Danny Callow said the company was excited that Nkana will be back home after a year playing their games at Arthur Davies Stadium while rehabilitation works were taking place at Nkana Stadium.

“This means one very important thing to us, to the fans and the club-Nkana is coming back home this season,” Callow said.

“We can once again start enjoying the pleasure if playing at home at our famous “Chilata.”

Nkana will not have to wait long to test-run their pitch before their March 16 league kickoff against Roan United at the same venue.

This Sunday, Nkana hosts Kabwe Warriors in a pre-season friendly to officially open Nkana Stadium.

  2. CCTV IS NO LONGER A LUXURY AS PEOPLE MAY VIEW IT. IT IS A NECESSITY. CCTV MUST EMBRACED BY THE POLICE FORCE ESPECIALLY IN BIG TOWNS. IT SHOULD ALSO BE ENCOURAGED IN RESIDENTIAL HOUSEHOLDS. HOWEVER, THE LAW MUST BE ENACTED TO MAKE IT A REQUIREMENT FOR BIG COMPANIES (TO START WITH) TO INSTALL CCTV AROUND THEIR PREMISES. THIS WILL GREATLY HELP LAW ENFORCEMENT WINGS IN THEIR CRIME INVESTIGATIONS. ALL FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS MUST INSTALL CCTV. CCTV MUST BE AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS AND ZEBRA-CROSSINGS.

  4. those looters buys a virginity to enhance Mopani and glencore’s image…
    why the PF govt does not recover the tax and benefits ??
    at least $500 million lost !
    Banda and his MMD govt were corrupt but why PF govt closes its eyes, also rotten or incompetent ??

    According to NGOs in its 2010 pilot audit by Grant Thornton, Zambia and Econ Poyry, Zambia lost an estimated income of USD 175 million in tax revenue between 2003 and 2008 from tax avoidance practices’ by Glencore AG International owned Mopani Copper Mines.
    copper from Mopani is sold under a contract with copper in one instance being sold at 25 per cent of official prices at LME. In other words, they are not paying taxes over 75% of the copper sold to Glencore.

    as the Glencore owned mine never declare any dividends to Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines Investment Holdings. During the period under review, Action Aid estimates that the Zambians government lost an estimated USD 50 million per year in undeclared dividends to ZCCM IH by Mopani Copper Mines, according to Action Aid was avoiding declaring any dividends by ZCCM IH through transfer pricing and over statement of the costs.”

    “The auditors found that MCM resisted the pilot audit at every stage. The company’s book-keeping was incomplete, several legally required documents were lacking and the general ledger analysis showed several loopholes and couldn’t be matched with the trial balance,” the organisations stated. “The auditors also found an inexplicable doubling in the…

    costs of the company between 2005 to 2007, which shows that the company has been artificially inflating its costs to minimise the profits shown in their books so that they could pay less taxes. Despite the fact that the audit was finished in the fall of 2009, it was kept secret.”

  8. Such sponsorship is long ovedue for a team with a rich history like Nkana F C. I have no doubt that with that kind of sponsorship, soccer fans will see a return of “Kalampa” to its glorious days of the likes of Rueben “Kamanga” Sakala, Golden Kazika, Gibby Mbasela, the Malitoli brothers, Dennis Kabwe, Beston Chambeshi, Kapambwe “Gentile” Mulenga, Kelvin Mutale, Dick Shonga and Numba Mwila.

  12. Thank you very much for up dating me about the new Nkana stadium. Ichilata is no longer there please. There is CCTV to meet morden security standards.I am sure Mopani Mine police and the Closed Circuit Television [ CCTV ] is the best solution to the security standards at our majority loved and favoured team Nkana. God has answered our prayers. Please come in numbers and watch both the country’s most followed football club and the stadium itself. Faz should now consider Nkana stadium for the fourth coming Cosafa tournament becouse of the size of the stadium.

  13. CCTV is an amazing way to combat crime, as well as catch bizarre occurances on camera, you can even sell that footage to the media.

    If at all nyone is interested in CCTV I have access to 4 up to 32 chnnel systems all of which are smartphone enabled. I am in the process of starting an advanced CCTV company.

    Please feel extra free to contact me if at all you are interested in ordering any system including home video intercom system. I can deliver any were in Zambia for a small fee.
