Sports Bobton Chella dies

The local football fraternity is mourning former Mufulira Wanderers and Zambia midfielder Bobton Chella who died on Tuesday in Mufulira.

Chella died at Malcolm Hospital in Mufulira after an illness.

The prolific midfielder starred for Nkana in the 1990.

Funeral gathering his in Mufulira.

“I am saddened by the death of my former team mate at Nkana Bobton Chella who passed away in Mufulira,” former Nkana defender George Chilufya mourned.

Ex-Nkana keeper Emmanuel Msichili described Chella as a good person.

“So sad, he was a good guy,” Msichili said.

Chella came from a footballing family that produced striker Paul Chella (late), Noah Chella and John Chella


  1. need more data he never played in NATIONAL team so i dont know him , still what disease is an ILLNESS? If he died of the ka disease just mention it and never beat about the bush for others to be careful not vochita chita pamene pamkazi. U mean he was SINGLE? MHSRIP

  2. Chella – A striker with a knack for goals. Could score from nowhere – he did not need to create a set piece.

  3. Knew the brother well… Paul Chella, when he was still with Ndola Wanderers F.C.
    then under the sponsorship of the defunct FURNCOZ.

  4. ANYOKO, if you were still young and never knew Bobton, then just say so. Bobton Chela played as a Midfielder for Nkana and the National team, was immediate young brother to Paul Chela who was himself a striker for the National team as well. Then followed either Noah or John, cant remember clearly. Noah played for Nkana as well. I know the family from Mufulira.

  5. Comment:Anyoko, clearly you were very ypung or not yet born. Rest in peace Bashi Wendy. David will surley carry on with your name.
