ZAF Commander promotes Chisi, Arrows players following last season’s success

Zambia Air Force Commander Oscar Nyoni has promoted Red Arrows technical bench led by Chisi Mbewe and players to the next higher ranks.

Lt General Nyoni promoted the coaches and players at a ceremony held at the ZAF HQ in Lusaka on Monday.

Chisi has been promoted to Warrant Officer Class Two, while his Assistant Kalililo Kakonje and the rest of the bench are now Flight Sergeants.

Players have been promoted to their next higher ranks, which range from Flight Sergents, Sergents and Corporals.

“Because you are Champions, double Champions for that matter, as your Commander, I recognise your outstanding performance. Subsequently, I am pleased to promote each player and technical bench to the next higher ranks,” Lt Gen Nyoni said

“These promotions are with immediate effect and true evidence of your hard work and dedication, which has brought honor to the entire Air Force,” Lt Gen Nyoni added

“Once again, congratulations to the entire Red Arrows Football Club. As you prepare for the challenges ahead, including defending the MTN Super League and ABSA Cup titles and excelling in all future competitions, know that the Air Force Command stands firmly behind you,” the Commander assured

“With success comes responsibility; I urge each team member to remain and maintain focus, loyalty, and discipline, both on and off the field. Financial prudence and good health are equally crucial aspects that contribute to sustained success, especially as a sports personality.”

Red Arrows won a league and cup double last season.

The Nkoloma Stadium outfit is Zambia’s sole representative in the CAF Champions League.

The quarter Charles Kalumba (goalkeeper), Ricky Banda, Brian Chilimina and Saddam Yusuf Phiri have been named in Zambia’s Cosafa Cup squad.

Chisi will also be in charge of the team at the tournament.
