Nkana legend Jericho Shinde has saluted his old club for naming their refurbished camp house after their late legendary coach Moses Simwala.

Nkana at the weekend commissioned the Moses Simwala Camp House located in Nkana West.

The ex-Zambia winger coached Nkana to winning eight (8) league titles between 1982 and 1992.

In an interview in Kitwe, Shinde said Simwala who died in 1993 deserves to be honoured.

“Kudos to Nkana Football Club for naming that camp house after Simwala. In fact this is long overdue,” Shinde said.

“They should have honoured him when he was alive. Any way let them also look after his wife Rhoda, she is still alive,” he said.

Simwala played for Nkana from 1966 to 1980 when he was appointed coach.

  1. One of the greatest wingers Zambia has ever known. Fast as a kavuluvulu he could dribble as well. Simwala was usually partnered on the wings by Brighton Sinyangwe. These two wingers caused havoc in continental football. As a coach he took Nkana to the finals of the club championship twice

  3. Aaaaah Moses “Chairman’ Simwala or simply ‘Ba Moze” awe we had talent those many years back..and as a coach his understanding of the lads and the game was impeccable…I recall at Independence Stadium (now renamed Heroes Stadium) Nkana was under-seize from Kabwe Warriors in a cup final two quick goals ‘teacher’ running riot on the wings…the rain saved Kalampa…in the replay total transformation it was like watching two magicians at work. Warriors carried the day but what a game makes one salivate…

    • @ Ellen – Just a little correction, Independence Stadium and Heroes Stadium are two different stadia. They located adjacent to each other, but still two different places. That said, I agree with your comments about “Ba Moze!!!!”
