In an interview , Chimbokayila Central Prison Sports Coordinator, Fred Mwaba said there was need for sponsors, especially from the corporate world  to come on board and support football at the prison in order to promote sports and keep inmates fit.

The sports coordinator noted that only Prison Fellowship, Muslim Brothers and Football Association of Zambia (FAZ)  currently support football at the penitentiary.

“FAZ recently donated jerseys to support soccer for inmates and therefore there is need for more sponsors to emulate this act if sport in prisons is to grow,” he said.

Mwaba said if more well wishers came on board to support sports in prisons across the country,  participation of inmates in sports at all levels and in various sports disciplines will be enhanced,” he said.

Meanwhile, an inmate at Chimbokayila Prison, Kasongo Kabwe expressed happiness towards the inmates’ participation in sports.

He noted that despite lack of sports facilities in prisons, he was glad that many inmates participated in various football tournaments. 

He further called on the prisons authority to help improve football participation through sensitizing prisoners on the importance of sport.
