CB Volleyball hails first ZAVA female president

Sports CB Volleyball hails first ZAVA female president

The Copperbelt Volleyball Association (COVA) has hailed the election of Nakaonga Kakoma as president of the Zambia Volleyball Association (ZAVA).

Kakoma made history by becoming the first female ZAVA president at the weekend after thumping her only rival Charles Haambote by 105 to four votes at the elective annual general meeting in Lusaka.

Prior to the election Kakoma was ZAVA treasurer while Haambote served as General Secretary.

“We believe having madam Kakoma as ZAVA president is good for the volleyball fraternity in Zambia,” COVA vice president Noble Mumba said.

“We are so happy that we have made history. For the first time we have a woman as president,” Mumba said.

Kakoma was a player before taking up administration.

“We expect a lot from her. Of course we need to support her so that we can achieve our goals as the volleyball family.”

“We need to revamp the sport and ensure that volleyball is played in all parts of the country,” Mumba said.
