Government approves funds for the upgrading of Stadiums in Choma and Monze

Sports Government approves funds for the upgrading of Stadiums in Choma and Monze

Government has approved funds amounting to about K111, 100 for the upgrading of Choma’s Green Eagles stadium and Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula stadium in Monze.

Southern Province Sports Coordinator Juta Mudenda disclosed this when he and the football fraternity in the region called on the Provincial Minister Edify Hamukale.

Mudenda said Monze Swallows football club has for a long time not been able to host football matches due to the dilapidated state of Monze stadium.

He further revealed that the Ministry of Youth and Sport will next year introduce a ‘community sport’ programme meant to identify grass root sporting talent in the province.

Meanwhile, Southern Province Minister Edify Hamukale expressed happiness at the performance of Monze Swallow and Green Eagles football clubs.

Hamukale has since congratulated Green Eagles for maintaining its position in the top local league and Monze Swallows for being promoted to the super league division.

He said sport has the potential to contribute to the country’s tourism and as such, individual players should continue with their achievements so as to raise the sporting status of the province in the country.

The minister added that sport was also a good way of keeping the youth from bad vices in society thereby contributing to a morally upright and responsible citizenry.

Meanwhile, Green Eagles chairman Jim Kafumukache offered to allow Monze Swallows to use his team’s stadium whenever they have matches to play before the Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula stadium is be worked on.

Kafumukache expressed gratitude to government and other stakeholders for sponsoring Green Eagles.

    • You’re just an ingrate. Why politicise everything?? Sport (football) in particular is a unifying factor therefore such programmes must be supported by all of us.
      Hon. Hamukale, job well done.

    • It’s very sad that everything has to hinge on politics. Development is for Zambia not for Lungu. It’s sad that in some townships on the copperbelt some opposition party is sending people to destroy fixtures such as street lights. I failed to understand the logic behind such actions. You’re defeating Zambia and not Lungu because he go just as other presidents have left.

  1. Ts a very good idea those stadiums make Zambia look a village especially to the tourists that use the main road on there way to Lusaka…..just hope the contract will not come with employees already from the so called Lusaka ,may it benefit the locals in the areas …..thumbs up to ecl and team….next should be the mazabuka kafue road
