Matete nods CAAAB reconciliation


FORMER 400m world hurdles champion Samuel Matete says the reconciliation path taken by Copperbelt Amateur Athletics Area Board (CAAAB) secretary Lewis Mwenya is positive.
Matete said in Kitwe yesterday that Mwenya’s decision to embrace people that were sidelined in the past is commendable.
“This shows that people have realised that in order to move our sport forward, they need to allow people like me, people who love this sport to be part and parcel of running it,” Matete said.
He confirmed that he will attend this weekend’s meeting that has been called by Mwenya.
“Let us wait and see how things move after this decision they have made. Otherwise, all we want to see is that things move for the betterment of our sport,” Matete said.
But asked whether he would drop the defamation lawsuit against Mwenya, Matete declined to comment.
Mwenya recently announced the lifting of former CAAAB chairperson Joseph Chikolokoso’s suspension.
Mwenya said time had come for the athletics family to put their differences behind and face the future as a united force.
