Can Kalampa or Dinamo take advantage of Zanaco and Zesco’s CAF commitments

The imbalance between the Zambia football season calendar and the CAF one is to a larger extent a traverse.

The fixture compilations and flights connection always takes its toll on Zambian teams.

Zesco is a vivid example of that: last season, despite having the best squad in size and quality in the country by some miles, they couldn’t handle the physicality, jet lag and fatigue that accumulates in the process.

They ended up surrendering the trophy to the ‘Bankers’ Zanaco and almost missed out on the CAF competitions slots.

So, with  Zanaco’s and Zesco’s run in the competitions promising to be a long voyage, is it advantage  Nkana (Kalampa) and Power Dynamos (Dinamo)?

Zesco’s demise last season was not coincidental, it was well documented. In a space where Zesco  had to criss-cross the continent, Zanaco had the luxury of having more time in training and conditioning – a luxury Zesco couldn’t afford. The rest is history as they say; the bankers ended up being crowned champions of Zambia.

A similar fate beckons for Power and Nkana this season. They have to cease the moment like the bankers did last season and make sure Zesco and Zanaco play the meek character.

So, who’s ready to pounce between the two?


The heart-throb of many Zambians. They do have a great squad but Nkana’s achilles heel is holding it when it matters, a syndrome which has become palpable at the club.

If there is chance for Nkana to further enrich their trophy cabinet, it’s this season.

They’ve kept their best players from last season, with Walter Bwalya being the epitomizing stamp of that.

The most certain thing at pa Chilata is uncertainty – they’ve leap-frogged Aggrey Chiyangi from head-coach  to technical director– and in turn they’ve elevated his assistant Zeddy Saileti to head coach -a tale that makes less sense. Saileti and and Chiyangi presided over last season’s Nkana’s title chase collapse and altering positions with the same personnel is surprising for a team of Nkana’s caliber.

Maybe there is more than meets the eye in this case. But even then, Saileti has to instill his ethos on this team and that could prove to be  hindrance number one–he’ll need more time.

Nkana’s holy grail maybe bagging their 13th title, but with the factors aforementioned,  this Nkana’s dream is sure to be a wild goose chase more than anything.


Power’s biggest problem over the years has being their inability to find that coach to propel them to the top again.

They’ve lagged behind the likes of Zanaco and Zesco due their managerial merry-go-round.

In Danny Kabwe they look like they’ve defied that hoodoo which has proved elusive for a few years.

He’s brought  his tactical nous to the  fore and the players seem to have imbibed to  that. His biggest task would be to avoid that slump that finds its way in this Power side after their last title.

With Nkana having changed coaches over the break  in hope of countering for the title; Power on the other hand have not changed–that and power’s shrewd signings in  pre-season does put ‘aba yellow’ on a more certain wagon than their nemesis.

Do you see Power Dynamos or Nkana seizing the opportunity?

    Bushe who is sponsoring Lusaka Dynamos ? Where is this money coming from ? Generally it seems a lot of money has come into our league this season – look at Builcon and now Dynamos flashing such cash .

    Ugandan defender Ochaya joins Zambian top side Lusaka Dynamos FC

    Uganda’s international defender Joseph Ochaya has joined Zambia’s Premier League side Lusaka Dynamos FC, a club official said here on Tuesday.

    David Tamale, the KCCA FC Chief Executive Officer told Xinhua that the deal has been concluded and Ochaya has signed a two-year contract.

    Tamale revealed that the Zambian team paid 120,000 U.S. dollars to sign the utility defender.

    “He played his last match for KCCA FC against South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF Total Champions League last weekend,” added Tamale.

    The former Asante Kotoko defender in Ghana has been in good form that saw him help KCCA FC win the 2015/2016 League title. The team is also top of the League this season.

    “I am very happy that I will be trying out my talent at a professional level again. I will continue working hard for my team and country,” said Ochaya.

    Ochaya was part of the Uganda Cranes team at the 2016 Africa Nations Championship in Rwanda and the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon. Enditem

    Pungwa. …very good observation….I have been wondering who is sponsoring them as well…when I saw the swanky team bus I was amazed. ….Zamfoot instead of boring us with those articles. ….can we have data on who is funding Lusaka Dynamos. …We know it can’t be hanif Adams. ….There must be some serious financial muscle behind Lusaka dinamo

  4. paradox says:

    punch knows who the sponsers are

  5. soccerguru says:

    So why doesn’t punch tell us….where have Lusaka Dinamo found all this cash

  6. slim says:

    Road construction contracts, where else???!!!

  7. Positive thinking says:

    I like this article. It paints a very good picture of how teams lack balance in terms of league and continental commitment. Squad depth is an oversight that you can’t afford if you are going to do both.

    Nkana and Power also have a very good opportunity to jump in and win the trophy. Though, I do think an article on where ba City ya moto is getting their funding also has my curiosity peaked.

  8. paradox says:

    i think he hasnt been to this site in a long time

  9. Jbs SIMUBENARD says:

    huawi is the one who’s sponsoring Lusaka dynamos

    Where is that swine, Undefeated gumugumu whatever your sh!t name is, nigga you been talking sh!t on the other thread while I was gone? Look nigga. Your daddy Kalu is gone and sooner you realize that, better for your mental psycho sickness you have. Your hatred for Kamanga will you take you to your grave and I will look for your grave and piss on it, mark that, f00l. Keep spitting nonsense here on this site. Nobody in their right mind should ever take you serious and that’s the difference between you and most of us bloggers who have been here long before you learned how type on a computer. Silly boy. Go back to your cave where you came from. Next time you wanna start talking sh!t, you be able to back it up. I don’t Kamanga, but the nigga is way better than your corrupt Daddy Kalu and that’s a fact.

  11. Zamfoot you should also give us the information about the new signing in the zambian premier league we want to know which players has Nkana,Green buffolos,power dynamos and these other clubs have signed and how many foreigner players have been signed so far because there no information about the super league team activities so far

    • Tc Soccerman says:

  12. Tc Soccerman says:

Zamfoot, you let this clown talk sh!t, but guess what, you are about block me because this ng’wangwazi has been looking for me for a long time and now he is found me. @undefeated guru, bring it on b!tch I ain’t yielding back. You have crossed the line. I have been watching you and you are about to experience the wrath of fire. I am waiting on you b!tch.

  13. Tc Soccerman says:

    I have been really good on this site and tried my level best to be as productive, while being respectful of other bloggers, but this nigga undefeated gumu gumu pushed me to the corner, so lets finish it Gumugumu.

  14. Tc Soccerman says:

  15. Tc Soccerman says:

    punka$$ b1tch hiding behind the keyboard acting like you know sh!t when you actually don’t. Like I said, next time you want to talk sh!t about me, you better know what you are talking about. Not everyone is a clueless cadre like you are. Hold your opinion towards Kalu or Kamanga and I will hold mine. Swine.

  16. Kikikikkikikikikikikiki you remember last time I gave you a friendly advise that you should stop smoking matuvi but you didn’t listen, see you are now mad.Any way I don’t blame you I blame that bitch you call your mother the very day she started opening her legs to a mad man you call your father and gave birth to an imbecile boy by the name of TC soccer dog.kikikikiki what a combination a bitch plus a mad man equal to TC soccer dog

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      Unlike you, I will keep parent out of this, but if you are going to insult innocent parents, then it confirms to everybody on how shallow minded you are. For the record, I also respect your parents even though I do not know them, They are your parents(i don’t care how they conceived you, that’s none of my business, they are still parents). But still you are an id!ot. Just because you suck Kalu’s @$$ does not make you sane enough to get into a normal discussion with me or any sane bloggers on here. You have repeatedly been talking shi!t/insult about me all because you have an inferior ability to reason.

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      Truth is you are a douchebag and everyone know it on here, only those of your like side with your pathetic wacky comments on this site. If I were you, I would stop exposing your stup!dity because enough is enough, you have been prooven to be dull and plain ignorant and its getting out of control. but hey its a free world, you so far win an award of being a cluesless idiot.

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      “friendly advise” My @$$, you ain’t my and will never be. The last thing I would ever do is getting advise from a dull piece of sh!t like you.

  17. Hehehehehehehe you can say that again and again fool you think you are an American ooh I see the moron is trying to be an American go ahead continue vomiting matuvi here, as you are vomiting matuvi you should also tell us how did you rape that dog that you are keeping

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      B!tch, yes I am proud America citizen and Zambian citizen. You have a problem with that? got hang yourself. I can’t help you.

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      “rape that dog that you are keeping” Lol, I get it you are vocabulary handicap, but rape? Please, came up with something else, that’s lame.

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      What? you ain’t writing sh!t nomore? That’s right, go back back to your mama’s house and eat supper. I bet she cooked for your broke@$$.

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      I hope this put to rest all of your utter Nonsense and garbage you have been trying to spill on me on this site. I see your mama took her phone back and now you can’t comment in this site. Clown.

  18. Tc Soccerman says:

    Nigga at your age still living with your mama and then you come here to talk sh!t as though you crap, yet you don’t. Somebody had to call you out b!tch. So next time you wanna talk sh!t, you better have facts to back it up. I ain’t a Kamanga cadre, but atleast I have the intelligency and balls to give credit when he does certain things right, unlike you brainwashed by Kalu’s playing archivements that you refused to admit when he was screwing up FAZ and Zambia. I bet if Kalu showed to your mama’s house and asked you to suck his d!ck, you would do it in a heartbeat because your brain is f@cked beyond repair and you just believe everything that comes out of his mount. What a sad, pathetic, colonial mentality you have. I actually feel sorry for your pathetic @ss.

  19. GRAND says:

    Why should you insult others just because you differ in opinion ?
    Thats not right man

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      Grand, when did I start insulting anyone on here? Are you scared to call out your boy gumugumu? And what opinion are you talking about? This is not about differencies in opinion. This is about the hatred for Kamanga and those of us that see thing differently are attacked with insults by ignorant id!ots like undefeated(feaces) guru. I respect those that are Kalu cadres, but I still don’t agree with the direction he was taking FAZ and guess what, so did those that VOTED HIM OUT. Do I come here and start insulting Kalu’s supporters, NO I din’t, but I insult those that insult me(guru) when I give credit to Kamanga on things I believe he is doing right. That’s my right and nobody can tell me not to. You know too well that your clown friend Gumugumu is at fault and I have been watching him for a long time, and yes I will insult this piece of trash with pride anytime I want to because he deserves no respect whatsover from me.

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      So you have issues with me insulting Gumu gumu, but you have no issues with him insulting, Paradox, seen from afar, Prince etc. Double standard much?

  20. Which America? a fool like you can’t live in America you live in a bush.I told you before you coment reserch first your useless kamanga has never achieved any things as an administrate in football the records are there to see. kabwa warriors was demoted to division one when he was a chairman FACT. he was fired at power dynamo as a commitee member for been incompeted FACT he was fired at zambezi portland for lack of good leadership FACT and he is even under investigation for corruption so you see why I don’t like the fool like father like son

  21. Tc Soccerman says:

    Zamfoot, and other good respectable bloggers on here, I need you to know that I have tried to resist the bait from this gumugumu for a long time, but he showed no signs of retreating, therefore I had to hold my own and responded to his garbage. You can delete the stuff above. If you decide to block me again on this site, I will respect that and oh well, its been fun, but I hold no apologies to this gumugumu guy, only to Zamfoot and the good people that blog on this site. I’m outta here!

  22. Positive thinking says:

    Eish. You leave for afew minutes and all hell breaks loose.

    TC naiwe you need to calm down. There’s no need to spewing all this vitriol based on a conversation on the internet. This should be a safe place for all of us to disagree and agree as we see fit. Regardless of how you feel about Undefeated and his opinions; you should learn to discuss without useage of insults or the n word. At this point, you are only hurting your own credibility. It’s not that serious.

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      @Positive thinking, I have tried to resist this guy for far too long, but he kept on pushing me to the corner. As a matter of fact if you read his comments from back then, you will realize that he is the one that started on with insults. I didn’t.

  23. During the campagns kamanga promise us a lot of things that he has not fulfilled so far he promise us that he is going to revived the BP top8 which he has not done so far,he also said the selection of players to the national team will be done on merit but alas its the opposite that is happening quality players are not been called to the national team we still have the same Adrian chama in the team while quality players like walter bwalya chris muthali are not selected when I point out those isues I’m insulted I’m called names like kalu cadre by some moron TC soccer dog continue with those insults you won’t change my opinion on kamanga. he will remain inept

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      Well, don’t insult me and you won’t none from me, but if you do, then expect that favor to be returned. I don’t care about how your opinion on Kamanga or Kalu, as a matter of fact, I don’t give a f@ck.

  24. So it hurt you when I say kamanga is incompeted let’s call a spade a spade here the man has no vision to take our game forward.ok if has a vision to develop our football answer this question what program has he put in place for youth football?answer this simple question now I’m waiting.second question how is he going to tap the untaped talents in rural areas?third question what plan has he put in place for the zambian player who are in europe Asia and America with the zambian roots?because other countries have done that why can’t we do the same?so mr 2pac answer these question I’m waiting.MEAN WHILE continue insulting

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      “So it hurt you when I say kamanga is incompeted” No it does not and I don’t care how you view/feel about Kamanga or anybody else, but when i say certain things with regards to giving him and his admin credit where I feel its due, don’t come here and start to insult me or those that have no unfound hatrad as you have.

    • Tc Soccerman says:

      If you want to b!tch about Kamanga, why don’t visit him at his office at FAZ(atleast you won’t have to go to South Africa) or get his connections on linkedin(assuming you know what that’s all about and address your concerns? I addressed Kalu when I met him as a bitch that he is he got pissed off and walked away, then I sent him a tweet and he had no answers but to blocked me, so that’s what people who are hiding something do, run and run like you boy Kalu.

  25. After those insults you think my opinion on kamanga will change never.why are you running away? its only a coward who runs away answer my questions I’m still waiting since you are intellengent as you are claiming American.you think your insults will intimidate me never

  26. My opinion on kamanga will never change as long as he does not do the right thing I will be alway here to criticize him. like I said its only a coward who runs away from answering the questions. I REST MY CASE

  27. Then if does not hate you why do you insult people who have divergent views with kamanga?I remember last time you even reach the extent of telling a lie just to protect him.ok may be you forgot let me remind you.you said that CAF did not sign the check that was in the under 20 Afcon so meanig faz is yet to be given the money now tell me were did you get that information and which source was that?answer me I’m waiting don’t run away

    • TC Soccerman says:

      You are the one that started with the insults, but spin it all you want. I don’t owe you any answers, you pissed me off already, so whatever.

  28. You see mr 2pac you haven’t answered any of my questions the answer is simple you don’t research.the reason why I have asked those questions is because you claim to know the policies of kamanga when in the actual sense you don’t know.you claim that kamanga is the right the man to leader faz but you have failed to explain his plans and visions for zambian football.you see again I have put you were you belong again.l rest my case NEXT

  29. Since he left kabwa warrior is back in the super league and they are attracting good players again example is solomon sakala the under20 captain so tell me something else

  30. At the moment warrior is well organised than during the time of kamanga they even employed the expatriate coach in the name of mohamand fathi. Which kamanga failed to do

  31. So you see mr American your agurment lack substance and merit you have tried but not good enough what about power dynamo and zambezi portland do have answers for his poor managementa?I’m waiting

  32. Hello mr Americano are still there? or you have run away can you prove to me that your dad is competent to run football e.g by giving me the belief history in football administration be a man enough and face me and you should also answer my questions don’t be a chicken I’m waiting

  33. Hello mr Americano are still there? or you have run away can you prove to me that your dad is competent to run football e.g by giving me the belief history in football administration be a man enough and face me and you should also answer my questions don’t be a chicken I’m waiting zamfoot my comment is harmless

  34. I see that you are a coward the next time you come on this site face me with facts don’t just run your mouth like a mad man I have shut your month with facts that why you have run away
