According to a list of sanctions released by the IAAF, Mupopo is among the 43 athletes who have been sanctioned for failing a doping test.

This means Mupopo will not take part in any IAAF organised tournament.

The ban is effective August 12, 2017.

Mupopo is a former Gold medalist at the 2016 African 400 women Championship and has represented the country at major international competitions such as the Commonwealth wealth Games, London Games, All African Games among others.

And Zambia Amateur Athletic Association President Elias Mpondela says ZAAA has not been presented with the findings.

Mpondela says ZAAA is aware that the IAAF was investigating MUPOPO but has not been furnished with official communication.

  2. Four years! The IAAF doesn’t usually mete out such long sentences for first offenders. Is it because she is an African from obscure Zambia?

  3. So Mupop is a girl. I thought she was a boy?.. Anyway, cheating of any kind must be sanctioned. LAZ Mus follow such ethics Nd suspense and withdraw Practising Licences from cheating, banditry fraudulent lawyers. I am demanding 12 of them to be sanctioned for enticing themselves with my UN benefit entitlement and stealing from me in abuse of their legal practice and abuse of the judicial process. They can’t cheat me out of what I earned and was paid by the United Nations. I urge LAZ and the judiciary to remove those lawyers from the courts. It’s unethical to have them there after such embarrassing acts. It damages the integrity and credibility of the judicial process. Banditry lawyers enticing themselves with my UN benefit entitlement must be removed from the roll. Mupopo was caught…

  4. Coach Kalembe has a bad record of taking drugs when he was an athlete in Zambia and the US. Him and Mpondela wanted to make a name and quick money. Mpondela and his executive time is over. Even the other athletes are on drugs. Remember the fake time of young Siame 9:87 seconds in 100 m at Heroes stadium .

    It took IAAF TO CLEAR THE AIR THAT IT WAS FAKE TIMINGS. WHY IS THAT THE FORMER NATIONAL COAH WAS NOT GIVING THE ATHLETES Drugs .
