  1. The Preacher Man. The man was good at boxing, I came close to him during his armature boxing days at Green Buffaloes under trainer Vincent Mudenda and the likes of Lucky Mutale. May heart goes to his family and all boxing loving fans and administrators. This is elder brother to Engineer Edward Mwamba and others. MHRIP

  2. Oh my goodness me, we hv lost a down-to-earth man who still had a lot more to give to the sport he loved. Zambian boxing fraternity will not be the same without Tony. Rest in peace, countryman.

  4. Ba Anthony and Moses Penza were regulars (91-93) at the formerly Al mont Blanc Cafe opposite the main office in Lusaka. Good down to earth gentleman that would always greet you with a smile. Met him 18 years later, he still was able to remember a face that he had interacted with in the early 90’s. Rest in Peace ba Kaamba.

  5. Nemwine mwalasa . Down to earth humble gentleman that knew how to interact with pipo. I met ba Mwaba thru uncle Mo (Penza), good company mu al mont blanc Cafe opposite post in Lusaka. 18 years down the road he was still able to remember me.
    RIP champ

  6. Mr Mwamba had a genuine passion for Boxing. The boxing fraternity has suffered a huge loss as he has left big shoes to fill. Others will now emerge from no where for personal gain, whereas he had passion for it. What a terrible loss!!! MHSRIP.

  7. Ba Zambia, just because u want funding from our killers(developed counties) doesn’t mean every death should be Covid related.
    Get it from me, we’ve had the flu virus in Zambia and Africa for a long time and we won’t die of Covid coz we’re naturally immuned!!!
