Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola has become the latest victim of the nationwide army worm invasion.

The worms were first sighted on the Levy Stadium pitch over the weekend.

Ministry of agriculture officers on Monday moved into Levy Stadium to swiftly deal with the bugs that have been a national menace since late 2012.

Government officials led by Copperbelt permanent secretary Stanford Mschili also visited Levy Stadium to inspect the spraying.

Levy Stadium will host Zambia’s 2014 World Cup Group D matches against Lesotho and Sudan on June 8 and 15 respectively.

    • @Mwauluka But for my Psychology professor’s lectures I could have been equally baffled by Yebo’s irrational response. She explained that its usually dullards that want to identify others as such. This is in an attempt to deflect this kind of observation about them. Intelligent people very rarely talk about others’ lack of intelligence

  8. In Madagascar, large swams of locasts are having feasts of fury on crops and other vegetation. Handle the small portions of your worms quickly. If locasts came, it would be disaster.

  9. Rupiah Banda and the MMD are the ones responsible for those army worms. They should be arrested for letting them loose. When they were in power these worms were not seen, just because they are not in power they start unleashing them on the PF. They should be arrested and charged for unleashing worms of mass destruction on the farmers and now Levy stadium!
