It was a busy weekend of continental cup action for Zambia’s foreign-based players at their respective clubs.

Zambia striker Emmanuel Mayuka was in Cameroon on Sunday with his Egyptian club Zamalek to face Union Douala in a CAF Champions League first round, first leg match.

Mayuka’s continental debut ended without a goal after he was subbed in 67th minute of Zamalek’s 1-0 away win over Union Douala.

Twenty four hours earlier in Pretoria, goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene was on the subs bench in Mamelodi Sundowns 2-0 home win over AC Leoprads of Congo-Brazzaville.

Leopards had striker Winston Kalengo in their starting XI before he was substituted in the 85th minute.

In Ethiopia on Sunday, Zambia captain and midfielder Rainford Kalaba missed the first leg of TP Mazembe’s 2-2 away draw against St Georges due to suspension while defender Kabaso Chongo started the match.

Midfielder Nathan Sinkala was on the bench while striker Given Singuluma came on in the 83rd minute but was not on target.

On the same date in Burundi, striker Alex Ngonga did not score but played the opening 79 minutes of Gabon club CF Mounana’s 2-0 away win over Altetico Olympique of Burundi in their Confederation Cup first round, first leg match away in Bujumbura.

    • Nothing encouraging about our soccer – most of our players are perpetual bench warmers at their foreign clubs, and the so-called strikers keep firing blanks! Please let’s just build a National team whose strength lies in home-based players. This report is so depressing, especially the story of Kennedy Mweene who I think only remains at Sundowns to accumulate a decent pension. This is a player to delete from any kind of National team


  1. Malawian President Peter Mutharika took a swipe on Nigeria’s popular televangelist TB Joshua over an alleged prophecy that he would die before April 1, state television reported.

    “Let me tell you, Joshua… you will fail. What you did in 2012 will not happen again this year,” the president told a rally in the capital Lilongwe.


    • I concur with Mtharika. TB Joshua sometimes goes for the obvious, which also eludes him most of the times. Look at how many prophecies hes made about Mugabe’s passing….We are still waiting. He couldn’t even forsee the capture of more than 200 Chibok girls just under his nose, or the several other Boko Haram bombings that are so frequent in Nigeria
