    • Why support from the GRZ? Nkana is a club owned by a private mining outfit, so where does the Govt come in? Zambian mentality, we want Govt to be involved in everything!

      Congratulations Nkana. Hope ZESCO does well too.

  1. Kalampa has been through thick and thin, even when the team had no sponsors and had to depend on supporters Sate Sate didn’t shun the club. It was a beautiful result, hard to Zesco, they dominated the game but scores count. The battle is still on. Uwafitala akaimwena
