ZAMBIA SUPER LEAGUE FINALLY LANDS IN SOLWEZI
The buzzly town of Solwezi, in the North Western Province of Zambia will finally get the chance to sing, allulate, dance and cheer their local side, Kansanshi Dynamos. Its first time in the long long wait they are going to have to watch, a predominantly local side rub shoulders with top flight football clubs, and they too can now be a part of that.
Since, gaining promotion to the Zambian Premier Soccer two games have been played at the adopted home ground of Kansanshi Dynamos. But the fans like any other in the country had to get the results of the match from what journos call sources.
They have not had the previledge to witness their team in action. FAZ disciplinary committee had placed a caveat of playing to an empty spectatorship. After some unsportsmanlike actions that occurred in the Super League Play Off against Young Green Eagles. That is now water under the bridge, the town and club has paid its debt. About time to open a page.
The venue is the famous Solwezi Independence Stadium. In the first two matches, the new comers have not disappointed and have gone to post upsetting results. Further inflicting pain on some seasoned top flight campaigners. And that should stir the local fans to show the Zambian football fraternity what they can do…..in supporting their team.
Fans opted climbing trees to catch a glimpse of a remote view of the games versus, army side Green Buffaloes and Power Dynamos when they came visiting. Lusaka Dynamos are the visitors this time around and are going to be ceremoniously welcome by local fans.
Its Dynamos vs Dynamos.
Bwezani talked to the two officials at Kansanshi to get their feel of the forth coming encounters.
Club Administration Manager Mupeta Mweshi could not hide the excitement being awaited:
“First and foremost, we owe our fans a lot, only God can repay them on our behalf, they are a great bunch of fans and we are glad to have such a people rallying behind this great team,” Mweshi said.
He didnt forget to caution the fans and his expectations from them in the way they support the club:
“However we are growing now and we have had our lessons. On Saturday we still want our fans to turn out in numbers and cheer us and as the fans come…let’s all maintain the highest order of discipline.. let’s cheer and enjoy the game. But no unruly behavior,” concluded Mweshi.
One of the big resource that Kansanshi Dynamos have is the unity that exists among the Executive of the Club under the leadership of Mark Maimbo Silimi. He took it personal during the event that led to the ban of the fans by walking towards the fans and pleaded with them to stop the unruly behaviour.
He has words for them as the team prepares to host Lusaka Dynamos:
“I would like to thank the fans for the patience and support and expect them to come in numbers but to remember that we all need to be safe conscious and protect the infrastructure put up at the stadium,” said Silimi.
And that long awaited euphoria, excitement and electric atmosphere is here, history in the making and finally …
