President Lungu Gives Nkana Midlands Bureau $32,000

Press Statement:
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.

The funds will be used 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.

Presenting the funds through his aides this afternoon, the President took the opportunity to advise the sports community to install systems that will guarantee transparent, accountable, and efficient utilisation of resources so that there is sustainability in sports management and development in the country.

The funds were received by Nkana Midlands Bureau Patron Chileshe Kandeta, Secretary Dalitso Banda, and Nkana Midlands Treasury Representative Priscilla Katongo Witika.

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.

President Lungu has been an ardent supporter of sports in Zambia and his parental intervention to allow the FAZ League to resume on 01 July 2020, attests to that.

Speaking on behalf of Nkana supporters, today is yet another day of great appreciation to the President by Nkana’s millions of followers and the sports fraternity at large.

Our prayer and hope is to crown this good news by winning the league tommorow.

The outstanding funds will be paid to Walter Bwalya’s lawyers, WILSON AND CORNHILL ADVOCATES for onward disbursement to the player as per agreement entered between the club and the law firm. The outstanding payment to Walter is approximately US$19, 300.

We hereby wish His Excellency The Republican President, good health and success in all his assignments to make Zambia a better place for all of us.

Very good advise to a micro institution but remember that Zambia can only succeed if this practice is replicated to all institutions including Govt’s running of our public affairs, the economy & our politics!!!!!
