All FAZ league games will go ahead as scheduled despite the three days of national mourning for the football radio commentator icon Dennis Liwewe.
Sports minister Chishimba Kambwili said at a press briefing in Luanshya on Friday that it was only befitting to celebrate Liwewe’s life by going ahead with all scheduled matches on Saturday.
Government announced a three day period of national mourning from April 24-26.
“We are aware of the scheduled spors activities lined up before his demise and after consultation, we felt that the best to mourn or send of Mr Liwewe will be to allow the games especially football to go on on Saturday as scheduled on condition that all participating players must wear black arm band and they must all observe a minute of silence,” Kambwili said.
Liwewe, 78 died on April 22 in Lusaka from a Liver ailment and will be put to rest on April 26 in Lusaka at Leopards Hill Memorial Park.
