Mulisa said that although he was aware that Zanaco had suffered a mass exodus of players his team had also learnt that they had replenished the departures. He said that his side would not bank on whatever problems Zanaco were having but would stick to their game plan. The two sides will square off on Saturday at Nkoloma Stadium with tickets going on sale via computicket in Shoprite outlets. Tickets have been pegged at K10 all round with K100 for grand stand.

The opposition United Party for National Development has added its voice to plans by President Edgar Lungu to withdraw Zambia from the International Criminal Court in line with an African Union proposed position. UPND president Hakainde Hichilema said that such a move should run with the Zambian people. Hichilema said that President Lungu should also consult rights groups before taking such a position. He said that the move would lay the ground for President Lungu to introduce a dictatorship as he would not fear international reprisals. Hichilema said that the only dictators were scared of the possibility of being brought before the ICC. South Africa and Burundi have announced that they will withdraw from the ICC. Some members of the ICC plan to withdraw on the pretext that it is very selective in its prosecuting of members. President Lungu said that he will consult before committing to withdrawing Zambia from the ICC. The post Hichilema Cautions Against Withdrawing from ICC appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Copperbelt University lecturers and staff have lost patience with management and have downed tools over delayed salaries. The lecturers and staff are demanding payment of their January salaries that have not yet been paid.
