Zambian trio crowned league Champions in DR Congo
Zambian trio of former Chipolopolo captain Rainford Kalaba and defenders Tandi Mwape and Kabaso Chongo have been crowned Vodacom Ligue 1 champions in DR Congo.
This follows the Congolese Association Football Federation (FECOFA) cancellation of the 2019/20 season due to the Coronavirus epidemic. This means Moise Katumbi’s TP Mazembe has now won the Championship for a record 18th time.
The title is Tandi Mwape’s first silverware with the Ravens while it’s the fifth and eighth Vodacom league 1 title for Kabaso and Kalaba respectively.
