  1. My childhood team is City ya moto; I still have a very soft spot for them. We used to watch all the home games. Players like Peter Makembo, Fanny Hangunyu, Kaitano, Lawrence Chilopa, Jimmy Salisbury Chima, Lewis Shambulo, John Zulu, Chibaso Nkandu, Ben Kays, etc were a marvel to watch. The Chairman then was Lt Colonel Panji Kaunda. Don’t argue you were not there!
