Kabila stepped down as president of the record 12-timeZambian champions on June 19.

He has been replaced by Nkana vice president Joe Silwamba, who will take charge starting July, 1, 2020.

Under Kabila, Nkana finished second in 2018 and won the Barclays Cup and Charity Shield that same season and retained the latter in 2019.

Nkana also qualified for the 2019 CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinals for the first time.
