Teams observe moment of silence in honour of former Secretary to Cabinet

Filed under: Latest News,Sports |

Following the demise of the former Secretary to the Cabinet Dr Rowland Msiska and the declaration of a day of national mourning by government, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) wishes to advise its members to observe a moment of silence before kickoff of all fixtures today.

FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala says players will be expected to wear black armbands in honour of Dr Msiska.

“Government has declared today (Saturday) 27th October 2021 as a Day of National Mourning and therefore we are advising our members to respect this directive.

“Ideally the matches could have been cancelled but given the short notice that the declaration was announced with teams already having travelled for their away games the games will go on as scheduled but with observance of the measures provided,” he said.

Kashala has thanked government for giving FAZ the go-ahead with the games within the stipulated guidelines.
