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.

  1. With all due respect t o Dennis Liwewe why can’t we just let games continue as normal but give a minute of silence at the start and let the players wear black armbands, I am sure Dennis Liwewe would have wanted to let his favorite sport continue as normal.
    FAZ can not continue to rescheduling fixtures every time the gov’t declares national mourning, it is devalues the contracts it signs with continental TV companies who televise the league game on the continent.
