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

  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.
    MHSRIP.
