Sports Six Zesco players set for Manzini after visa hitch

Zesco United’s six players who did not travel to eSwatini with the team on Tuesday will join them in Manzini tomorrow.

The Kenyan duo of striker Jesse Were and David Owino, DR Congo defender Marcel Kalonda, Uganda striker Umaru Kasumba, Nigerian midfielder Quadri Kola and Burundi goalkeeper Dieudonne Ntibahezwa did not board the flight in Ndola to Manzini via Johannesburg yesterday because they did not have eSwatini visa’s.

Zesco have stated that the players will fly out on Thursday after securing their visa’s.

The players will land in Manzini just 48 hours before Zesco’s 2019/2020 CAF Champions League preliminary round, first leg date against Green Mamba.

The final leg is set for August 24 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

  1. Team manager should be held answerable. How do even take players to the airport without visas? Or maybe he thought everyone was exempt from visas like those from SADC, but again, that is poor management, he was supposed to research

  2. They had this visa problem even last year when they came to RSA; it is indeed poor management, its like they don’t learn from their mistakes or maybe its incompetence.
