By John Dino Banda and Derrick Sinjela
Zambia Sports fans Association (ZASPOFA) President Peter Makembo has praised President Edgar Chagwa Lungu for the overwhelming support rendered to his sporting group, through chartering a plane to Cameroon.
Pastor Makembo showered gratitude on President Lungu, stating that the presidential gesture contributed to Chipolopolo lads securing a good result against the indomitable lions in Yaoundé.`
Despite a poor start, Pastor Makembo expressed optimism that Zambia will qualify to the 2018 International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) Russia World Cup finals being hosted by President Vladmir Putin.
Meanwhile, Pastor Makembo praised Chipolopolo Coach Wedson Nyirenda for rejuvenating player morale evident with a “die a little for Zambia spirit’ against Cameroon.
Makembo is equally pleading with Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Andrew Kamanga and General Secretary Ponga Liwewe to grant Nyirenda a contract.
