Sports bodies congratulate President Lungu

DIANA MUTAKAFIMBO, Lusaka
THE Zambia National Soccer Fans Association (ZNSFA) has congratulated President Lungu on his victory in last Tuesday’s presidential election.
ZNSFA chairperson Musonda Mwaume said in Lusaka yesterday that it is encouraging to have a President who has football at heart.
“We are very happy that we have a leader with football interest. We would like to congratulate His Excellency Edgar Lungu on his election,” Mwaume said.
And Mwaume said cheer leaders agreed not to travel to Equatorial Guinea for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations to allow fans vote in last Tuesday’s election.
“It is not that we didn’t want to travel to Equatorial Guinea but we felt it was important that fans exercise their rights to vote. We will definitely travel if the national team goes past the group stage,” he said.
And Zambia Professional Wrestling, Boxing and Control Board chairperson Nelson Sapi said his organisation will work with Lungu’s administration to develop sport.
“On behalf of the board, the boxing fraternity, ring officials and administrators, I would like to congratulate President Lungu and the Patriotic Front for winning the election.  We need to embrace each other and forge forward,” Sapi said.
