Mweene snubbed again…Kalaba is new Chipolopolo captain
Chipolopolo midfield genius Rainford Kalaba is the new captain of the team.
Kalaba has taken over from Stopilla Sunzu who has voluntarily relinquished the arm band, saying he wants to concentrate on his core responsibility as a defender for the team.
Speaking at a brief handover cerrmony in Coach Honour Janza’s room this morning, Stopilla said he was grateful that he had been given such a big responsibility especially that his reign was during the qualifiers for the 2015 Africa cup series.
And new Skipper Rainford Kalaba emphasised the need for collective responsibility saying though he would be the one to wear the arm band he recognises that the other senior players are captains in their own right. Senior players present at this ceremony were James Chamanga, Kennedy Mweene, Vice captain Nathan Sinkala and Davies Nkausu.
And coach Honour Janza says he is happy with the humility of Sunzu who has decided to put team interest above self, saying that his action is a true mark of great leadership.
By assuming this role Kalaba has entered the hall of fame of captains for Zambia which include, Kalusha Bwalya, Christopher Katongo, Elijah Tana,Jones Chilengi,Dickson Makwaza,Ashious Mwelu among others.
Kalaba has officially been presented to the team.[FAZ]
