“Some teams already have travelled for their away games, the games will go on as scheduled but with observance of the measures provided,” he said.

Kashala has commended Government for giving Football House a go-ahead with the games within the stipulated guidelines.


  1. Truly deserved. He was a great man. We mourn and celebrate his spectacular life. Tonight I poured a whole bottle of 40 year old whisky in respect for this great man of the soil

  2. For those wondering how much the bottle costs me, it doesn’t matter what the price was. But I will say it was somewhere between 15 000and 20,000 kwacha

  3. The most classic adage regarding trolling is, “Don’t feed the trolls.” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.

    You should try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how poorly they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re not worth your time of day.

  4. Kamanga knows that people are calling for his blood after the poor performance of the national …now using the death of Msiska to win over Politicians and masses. No disrespect to Msiska but he was a civil servant not even associated to football.

  5. When a boat nearly capsized and drowned me at Kasaka in Kafue,I decided to look for the own. When I asked around I was told that he’s a regular at lusakatimes.com. Come out mambala I want to see you

  6. @KZ, I was told that those were your ramshackle vessels. Why do you want to kill me before I witness a 6th loss for the veteran?
