MINISTER of Transport, Works, Supply and Communications says government is committed to hosting this year’s 13th Intermodal Transport Africa (ITA) to be held in Lusaka from 28th to 30th October 2015. Hon. Yamfwa Mukanga said Zambia will be the first landlocked country to host the ITA conference adding that government has since committed £14,000 towards the hosting of the event.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, they say. Our forefathers took that one mighty step to fight for independence many years ago and today, we are privileged to celebrate mother Zambia’s 50th independence anniversary. The first Zambian president Kenneth Kaunda and his government did an amazing job in putting Zambia where it is today. They had to gather up their strength and transition the remnants left by colonial masters into a beautiful land.
The stripping of three points from Sudan in a 2014 World Cup qualifier against Zambia because one of its scorers was ineligible to play should serve as a warning to sports associations says Zambia Voluntary Soccer Fans Association (ZAVASOFA) Patron, Pastor Peter Makembo. Speaking in an interview with the Lusaka star, Pastor Makembo said the incident should not only be a warning to the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ), but also to other sports associations that want to field ineligible players in the country - cheating has got penalties.
