President Lungu Donates Nkana’s Walter Bwalya Settlement Case

Sports Feature Sports President Lungu Donates Nkana's Walter Bwalya Settlement Case

President Edgar Lungu has donated $32,000 to the Nkana supporters group to be used in off-setting the money owed to former club striker Walter Bwalya.

Nkana Midlands Bureau patron Chileshe Kandeta has confirmed by phone and in a statement that he received the funds from President Lungu’s aides together with bureau Secretary Dalitso Banda and treasury representative Priscilla Katongo Witika.

Nkana, who are in the race to win the 2019/20 Super Division delayed to pay the first installment on June 16 as prescribed by the FAZ player status committee.

“His Excellency Dr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu, The President of the Republic of Zambia and Patron of the Football Association of Zambia, has swiftly responded to an appeal for assistance and has given the Nkana Midlands Bureau US$32, 000 or approximately K585, 000,” Kandeta stated.

There were concerns that Nkana could be docked points for delaying to honour the debt settlement plan agreement with Bwalya.

“The funds will be used to off-set the entire outstanding dues owed by Nkana Football Club to Walter Bwalya, a former player, and for investment in sustainability programmes for the Nkana Midlands Bureau,” he said.

“As Nkana supporters, we are very very grateful to the Republican President for coming to the rescue of Zambia’s biggest and most popular sports team, Nkana Football Club. Twatotela bakateka wesu, Lesa amipaale.”

Second placed Nkana have 47 points, one behind leaders Napsa Star who will face Forest Rangers in their final match on Thursday.

Nkana are almost guaranteed to finish on 50 points with reports that their last opponents Nakambala Leopards have forfeited their remaining league games due to Covid-19 concerns.

  3. Munthu ECL just like the next man works and earns a wage. He is over 60 and has worked for decades. He has enough savings to retire if he wanted to. So how can you ask the source of that income? Jealousy will kill you. Instead of being thankful for generosity shown here you are being a d.i.ck. this is why you lose elections

  4. Spaka of course to every jealous angry diasporan and upnd tribal donkey, the money is stolen. We expect such a from a childish party like upnd which you support. This is why they will never win a single election.

  5. The problem this guy thinks public money is his money. As long as he’s president we are done. This has no concept of leadership. Kuti twaponta mwe

  6. Anyway time to account will come, No matter how long it takes, time to account will still come. Even if bill 10 goes through, time to account will still come. Even if some lost souls want to defend the indefinable on this blogg, time will still come. The bible is very clear, there is time for everything

  7. Baza londolola at some point worry not, even people like chi Kaizer who have been misleading him aza ulula, just wait

  8. A person donates money to a great cause, the evil sadists can’t stand it. How evil hearted does a person have to be to get angry at less fortunate people who are being helped. I now accept that the upnd is formed of evil satanists. I have never seen anything like this before. Zambia will never let such demons anywhere near to the power of this Christian nation. Amen

  9. Great cause? What is great about football in Zambia? He should have donated the money to the fight against Covid. Not to a football team, If he donates to Nkana he should donate to Pilato too because both entertain citizens

  12. This comes naturally to ECL. Remember he stood for the Gabon disaster widows and families a gave them free legal services. Well done Mr. President, you are true humanitarian. Go Kalampa!!

  13. And this is the man who had less than US$1200 in his Bank account in 2015….thats stolen tax payers money….in Africa people hero worship thieving Politicians….that money is for the Zambian people stolen by makaka Bandit President Lungu….

  14. $32,000 x 18 = ZMW 576,000
    how many testing kits for Covid 19.
    How many poor Zambians can be fed.
    At least 40 or so Unza and CBU lectures salaries
    list is endless
    What a waste of resources.

  15. Ask and shall be given. They asked and he gave. What is wrong with that? Why should you be like Judas who said the perfume should have been sold and help the poor? Please, not everything should be blamed. He is human.

  16. Donating money to a club at the time we have the Coronavirus issue does not make sense. That money should have been used in the fight against CONV19, thus donating to Hospitals/Clinics
    My view

  17. Just because there is corona virus, does not mean life comes to stand still. In fact sports and healthy living has been considered vital in ensuring less deaths from covid. Overweight people have a higher chance of succumbing to it. Therefore, the president as usual is thinking 40 steps ahead of you. It is called wisdom

  19. You think all these people that have died from corona virus are stupid Kaizar Zulu? Your day will come. At your age one thing is for sure, you will not be alive 80 years from now (fact)

  20. What is the meaning of Prioritizing?
    To prioritize is to organize or complete things in order of their importance. Here we go we find it important to bail out Nkana at the expense of fighting disease that has caused death to millions on a global basis. (Over 100 in Zambia)
    Anyway we think differently

  22. Lukanga take up a sport. It will make you think more clearer. Right now you are showing signs of upnd lethargy
