Zambia sending advance party to AFCON base

Sports Zambia sending advance party to AFCON base

Zambia will send an advance party to Equatorial Guinea check on facilities at their base in Ebebiyin.

Honour Janza’s side will play their Group B matches in the remote town near the border with Cameroon.

Janza said he did not have an opportunity to visit Ebebiyin earlier when he travelled to Malabo for the 2015 Africa Cup draws on December 3.

“There was no provision to go there and we wanted to even more especially that we will be based almost in far areas of Equatorial Guinea on the border area with Cameroon,” Janza said.

“We have an advance party going there soon to get details so that by the time the teams camps in South Africa we will be able to get all the information we need.”

Janza said team manager Lusekelo Kamwambi is expected represent his technical bench in the advance party.

Ebebiyin is one of two new venues in Equatorial Guinea that were not part of the 2012 Africa Cup when the country co-hosted the event with Gabon.

The town is accessible via road and teams heading there will have to fly into the other new tournament venue at Mongomo before taking a 40 minute drive to Ebebiyin.

Zambia are in Group B together with Tunisia, DR Congo and Cape Verde.

Meanwhile, Zambia will switch base to South Africa on Friday before returning home after January 11 en route to Equatorial Guinea.

Zambia also have a confirmed friendly against South Africa on January 4 at Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg. Kick off will be at 15h00.

  1. Morning Zambians, morning sons & daughters of our Motherland. Just to let u know that PF cadres are bent on taking over the Police service after 20th Jan 2015 shud PF win the elections. They will infiltrate the Police such that even if they (1) grab yo plot & share it amongst themselves or sell it (2) assault u (3) steal from u, (4) bash yo car NO ACTION WILL BE TAKEN BY THE POLICE AS THE THUGS WILL HAVE INFILTRATED THE POLICE. On the other hand, if UPND wins the 20th Jan 2015 elections, there will be: (1) respect of law & order, (2) de-politicization of civil service, (3) efficient Police service as no cadres will be in the Police, (4) very serious effort towards growing the economy, (5) very high powered international delegates will come for HH’s inauguration. VOTE HH.

  2. This is like going to Play SOCCER IN PETAUKE-MWANJWANTHU AREA where their is no Tarmac, people are very primitive, eat mbeba for meals, girls dont go to school, a chief is like a DC , no malaiti and no phone network, pipo wait for the moon to play at night, girls marry at 16yrs and below even 12yrs, small kids are sent to look after cattle for 5yrshair thus when they can enrol in grade one, no hair saloons wow the list is endless miserables

    • Fellow bloggers, why shall we vote for HH, who as per his own admission is an SDA? Why shall we vote for a member of an SDA church, the followers of which refuse to celebrate Christmas, Easter and any other festival associated with Christianity?

  3. Mumba is a born again pentecostal preacher,So was Chiluba,Sata was catholic,Lungu is a muslim.So what’s the issue about HH and SDA?
