Sports Ex-Power Dynamos star Elson Mkandawire dies

Ex-Zambia and Power Dynamos striker Elson Mkandawire has died in a road accident at the age of 29.

Copperbelt police chief Joyce Kasosa confirmed Mkandawire’s death on Wednesday morning.

Mkandawire died on Tuesday evening in Chililabombwe when the car he was in rammed into a truck.

At the time of his death Mkandawire was on the books of FAZ Super League side Napsa Stars although he never kicked a ball for his new club.

Before joining Napsa he scored eight goals for Konkola Blades in the first half of the 2014 Super League season.

The ex-Zesco United, Zanaco Green Buffaloes and Kabwe Warriors forward launched his career at Livingstone Pirates in 2005 before joining Power Dynamos in 2006.

He was part of the Zanaco squad that won the 2013 Super League title under late coach Keagan Mumba.

Mkandawire was a regular call-up during Herve Renard’s first year as Chipolopolo coach in 2008.

He was unused substitute when Zambia took part in the first edition of the CHAN tournament in 2009 in Ivory Coast.

Mkandawire was last Sunday in the stands at Arthur Davies Stadium as Power thumped Al Khartoum of Sudan 2-0 in the preliminary roun, return leg tie of the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup.


  1. Condolences to Elson’s family I knew this guy when he was playing for Dynamos .p,may his soul rest in internal piece.

    • Is there internal and external peace? I always thought it was eTernal?
      Condolences to the family, may God strengthen you during this period

  2. Both are not correct: there is no internal or eternal peace for the Soul of a dead person; one you die chapwa, kwasila, kwamana!
