George Lwandamina has suddenly left Zesco United to take charge of Tanzania’s most successful club.

Lwandamina has turned up in Tanzania where he has signed a two year deal with Young Africans.

He left Zambia for Dar es Salaam just after Zesco’s 0-0 away draw against current FAZ Super Division leaders Zanaco on Saturday.

Lwandamina has been at Zesco since 2014; winning back-to-back FAZ Super Division titles with the five-time champions after successfully defending it in 2015.

His first match with the 21-time champions will be this Saturday at home against 9th placed Mbao.

Young are currently second on the log behind arch-rivals Simba on 21 and 29 points from ten and eleven games played respectively.

Lwandamina is the second Zambian to take up an appointment in Tanzania after Patrick Phiri who had three stints with Simba winning two titles with the 18-time champions.

Meanwhile Zesco have stated that they will issue a statement on Tuesday over the development.

Lwandamina leaves Zesco in 4th place and fifteen points behind leaders Zanaco with seven games in hand.

His assistant Tenant Chembo is expected to be in charge of Zesco for the remainder of the campaign starting with Wednesday’s away date against Nkwazi.

    • Lwandamina has lost it. Our coaches must learn from legends such as Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsegn Wenger. These are coaches that found a home in clubs they believed in and went to greater heights with those teams building their unequalled reputation and credibility. As for Lwandamina…well, I just wish him well. After all he may be Tanzanian himself too – Kwaliba ukukwata ishina weka muchalo chonse sure???????

    • @WanuNgwee, that’s fun.
      Anyway, Zambian coaches are like Fwayo Tembo, Jose Murinho, Herve Rene, Wedson Nyerenda or PF’ Miles Sampa, you never know their culture. Even a difference of 10pin, they will leave, then leave, then they are there and loose them for a while.

    • Iwe ka Wanu Ngwee na Nostradamus, wouldn’t you jump at the opportunity of an extra 10 pin? For all I know 10 pin is only 2 pin short of what a graduate gets paid in Zed. would you turn it down? Try saying that to a Civil servant.

  1. Very SAD indeed that now he goes to the coaching dust bin in TZ with young africans, SIMBA is better than young by far. ONE NGWEE is right i have never met someone called LWANDAMINA the whole country apart from his children if he has, so most likely he is TANZANIA, BURUNDI , RWANDA ETC even the stomach and his posture is really not zambian, well whatever the case we wish him well and thankyou for creating employment which we said we shall create in PF.

  4. This was the same coach a few weeks ago when he was asked about the possibility of coaching outside Zambia he flatly refused stating that he wanted to stay in Zambia. Anyway we wish him all the best in his new appointment

  5. Let him go; after all he is not passionate, he costed Zesco that game against Sundowns. By now Zesco would have been the club champs of Africa.

  6. One of the reason football has failed in Zambia is poor spectator attitude. Noone wants to pay to watch soccer, but we want to watch. A ZP commanding office will come with twenty people to enter free, next it will be Wusakile officer incharge with another entourage, followed by the local PF branch chairman with his cadres and their concubines. Then the mayor, councillors, Mps all with their entourages. Worst of all are the players who will bring in their wives x2, their fathers, uncles etc. In the end 3/4 of the stadium will be filled by those who entered free of charge. Funny thing these will be the first people to attack the club for poor player conditions. Don’t blame government.

    • There will also be the huge bunch of several underprivileged kids and a few adults who will be allowed in with several minutes to go before the end of the match…

  8. We at Young Africans are sad that our coach Hans is leaving,, we really hope Lwandamina will be worth the disappointment all of the Yanga fans felt,, we feel let down by our CEO,, let’s hope it works for the best,, we a letting go a coach with a win percent of 72%..served for two seasons lost only 4 games with two VPL titles and our version of FA cup.. I want this Lwandamina to prove us wrong and take us to CAF champions league finals,, anything below that it will be a failure..
