Kabaso Expelled From Chipolopolo Camp

Sports Feature Sports Kabaso Expelled From Chipolopolo Camp

Chipolopolo captain Kabaso Chongo has been banished from the Zambia camp and will not be part of Sunday’s final friendly stop against South Africa away in Rustenburg.

TheTP Mazembe defender was released from camp in Nairobi on Saturday just 24 hours after Chipolopolo lost 2-1 there in a friendly against Kenya.

“The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) wishes to inform the football family that Chipolopolo skipper Kabaso Chongo has been excused from the on-going international friendly matches for technical reasons,” FAZ spokesperson Sydney Mungala said in a statement.

“Following the decision of the technical bench, Chongo will not proceed with the rest of the team to South Africa where they will play Bafana Bafana on Sunday in Rustenburg.

“All the parties involved have been informed with Chipolopolo coach Milutin Sredojevic wishing the player all the best in his career.

“The TP Mazembe defender is expected to fly out to his base in Lubumbashi.”

Mungala did not give any further reasons for the defenders’ shock expulsion who has been Chipolopolo captain since March 2019.

Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic will now turn to deputies Bruce Musakanya of Zesco United or Power Dynamos midfielder Benson Sakala to captain the team on October 11.


  1. They are still thinking this is the second republic where there is no transparency. If you don’t tell us we will get our information from elsewhere like RUMOURVILLE AND IT WILL BE DAMAGING INFORMATION. Just change with the times ba FAZ

  2. What transparency? This is just a useless player who has outlived his usefulness. Isn’t this that useless defender who likes tucking his shorts up hence looking stupid and revealing his useless thighs?

  3. I don’t think it’s correct for FAZ to issue such a statement that casts aspersions on the player whom they know won’t answer back. Whatever happened in Kenya this matter has been mishandled but one day we’ll know the truth and Kabaso Chongo will be vindicated

  4. I think there is problem with Micho, if he doesn’t want old players, let him be open.
    Give arm band to the best player now, Lubambo Musonda.

  5. Micho will know the Zambian fans once he fails to qualify the team. There 2012 players than can still play. In as far as he wants young players he needs a mix of experience. Zambians will show Micho the door if he does not get results with Botswana.
