‘He was my Youngman. He started referee from the amateur and rose to officiate in the Super League,’ Kasusu said from Kitwe.

‘He was a humble and straight forward person. We have lost a gallant referee who served the nation according. May God rest him in peace,’ he said.

  1. Kabungo deserves national mourning.
    If ka Kampyongo died this (God forbid), he can be offered 3 days national mourning. But Kampyongo is doing nothing, look at the stupidity of chemical nonsense.
    Kabungo made peace of pitches, he controlled the league and unruly fans.

  2. Aweh may his soul rest in peace mwandi….in as much as we know that we all gonna die at some point imfa niyoipa mwandi elo ibaba…RIP MUDALA
