    • A very bad move, why fire people that are performing well? Zesco United have become a well known African scoccer team thanks to the hard work of Nkhata and other key members of the soccer management and team.

  1. This is the best way to leave a job. Not ati no, the boss didnt like me because I refused to be corrupt, or he is jealous because I am hardworking. Just leave and sing praises for the opportunity you were given

  4. He uttered derogatory remarks about other clubs, especially Nkana. It was in bad taste. What beats me is the decision to terminate his contract when he is away on duty. What are the bosses at Zesco trying to achieve? This was only prevalent in UNIP time when KK used to fire his minister like that, some even got stranded as their aids abandoned them. Some guy was fired while he was at some airport in UK trying to connect to somewhere, then BBC flashed that news item, he almost collapsed! Anyway I wish you well bwana Mumba

  6. The only positive thing Zesco management has done is to let the fans and all alike to clap for Mr mumba as he leaves the stage. Indeed, forget the sacking- he has left the stage while they are still clapping for him.
