Mwanza, 2 other players warned

ZESCO United vice-captain Jackson Mwanza, midfielders Jonas Sakuwaha and Justin Zulu yesterday escaped a lengthy ban after pleading guilty to the charge of abrograting camp rules.
Club public relations officer Katebe Chengo said in a statement issued in Ndola yesterday that the trio pleaded guilty to the charge during the hearing chaired by vice-chairman Dennis Banda.
“The three pleaded guilty to the charge and the committee chaired by club vice-chairman Dennis Banda ruled that the players be suspended for one month without any benefits that come with being part of the team.
“However, after mitigation, the committee warned the three against their actions as senior players before reducing the suspension to two weeks with effect from the day they were dismissed from camp,” Chengo said.
The three abrogated camp rules contrary to section 13 (1) of the Zesco United code of conduct by consuming alcohol whilst in camp on September 20.
This means the three have served the two week suspension.
Chengo also refuted The Post story headlined: ‘Zesco suspends trio for sneaking women in camp’.
