The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) is saddened by the death of a soccer fan identified as Masilokwa Libakeni in a tragic road traffic accident that happened at Ruundu, 500 kilometres from the Namibia – Zambia border.

Libakeni and four other people were on their way back to Lusaka after cheering the Chipolopolo boys on Saturday in a Group K Africa Cup of Nations match that ended 1-1.

FAZ President Andrew Kamanga has sent his condolences to the entire football community and the deceased’s family.

Libakeni was in the company of three other relatives when the Toyota Alphard they were in had a tyre burst and overturned several times.

The deceased was aged 32 and leaves behind a wife and a child.

The FAZ boss paid tribute to Libakeni for having travelled to Windhoek to support the Chipolopolo at a time when not many people were willing to sacrifice for the team.

Zambia drew 1-all with Namibia on Saturday in a Group K Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Windhoek.

This is contained in a statement signed by FAZ Communications Manager Desmond Katongo and received by ZANIS sport
