Injury prematurely ends Nyambe Mulenga’s career
2012 Africa Cup of Nations gold medal winning defender Nyambe Mulenga has retired from football after failing to recover from an injury he sustained in a road traffic accident in December, 2014.
Nyambe who was an active member of the Chipolopolo set-up when the injury occurred was on his way from his base in Ndola to join up with the rest of the Chipolopolo squad on the day of the accident.
Zesco United have confirmed that Nyambe, a member of the U20 famous class of 2007, has been redeployed to Zesco Limited, the power utility company.
Apart from the death of some Zesco Ltd employees, the devastating accident also saw the career of budding Zambia U17 midfielder Changwe Kalale end after he sustained a spinal injury while goalkeeper Satchmo Chakawa who was also on the same vehicle has recovered and returned to action.
Zesco United have also retired 29 year old long serving midfielder Maybin Mwaba who last season helped the Ndola outfit with two goals against Horoya Fc and Stade Malien in the CAF champions league.
Lottie Bwalya has also joined the duo in retirement after being redeployed to Zesco Ltd.
