Soccer ruined 2018

LENGWE

DIANA CHIPEPO and COSTEN BANDA, Lusaka
IN A year when almost all the national football teams performed dismally, it came as no surprise that Minister of Youth, Sport and Child Development Moses Mawere singled out the country’s major sport as a major disappointment at a media briefing yesterday.
That dismal performance is reflected in the 2018 Sports Awards whose ceremony has been postponed to next month in which only Green Eagles Football Club coach Aggrey Chiyangi and FIFA referee Gladys Lengwe are the only personalities from football vying for honours.
Mawere said in Lusaka that the performance of minor sports was impressive during the year except for football, which accounts for the largest chunk of funding from the ministry and corporate world.
Mawere, who announced that the National Sports Council of Zambia (NSCZ) has so far raised K85,000 from the K150,000 needed to host the 2018 Sports Awards gala, said they will have to re-evaluate the way they fund minor sports in the country.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
