ZAMBIA Athletics (ZA) aspiring presidential candidate Samuel Matete says he will not recognise incumbent
Elias Mpondela as president after October 1 because the constitution clearly states the period his tenure is expected to elapse.

conduct theirs but ZA would not have any elections until December or next year. CLICK TO READ MORE
