Players and officials from FAZ Division 1 Zone 2 side Chingola Police on Friday cheated death when their team bus overturned near Chembe District in Luapula.
17 players, 11 officials and two drivers were on the bus when the accident occurred as Chingola Police were traveling to Mansa for Saturday’s Week 30 match against ZNS Lwamfumu.
Club secretary Japhet Zulu confirmed that everyone on the bus escaped unhurt except midfielder Bruce Mtengo who sustained minor injuries.
“I want to notify you that Chingola Police FC had an accident 8 kilometres away from Chembe en route to ZNS Lwamfumu for the last game,” Zulu said.
“The driver lost control after a steering lock. Only one player had injuries but was checked and discharged from Mansa General Hospital,” he said.
The Police club has since proceeded to play the match at Kaole Stadium in Mansa.
