Popular Nigerian comedian Nkem Owoh better known as Ukwa has arrived in the country for some performance alongside top Zambian comedians at the Mulungushi International Centre. Ukwa will be part of the cast on Friday alongside the likes of Bob Nkosha of the Dorika fame, Dangerous J’burg, Lee Nonde (Ba Robby), Katebe Chibwe, Sinkala ‘Big Head’ among others. The leading Nigerian comedian whom many recognize from his popular acts on satellite television took off his comical hat to talk about the importance of the citizenry knowing their status. He was pressed by a horde of journalists at ZNBC seeking to be politically correct to comment on President Edgar Lungu’s declaration that HIV/AIDS testing be made mandatory. Ukwa said the move was important in moving forward in the fight against HIV/AIDS. He said that citizens should heed the calls and voluntarily be tested as a way of helping fighting the HIV/AIDS scourge. This is the second time Ukwa is coming to Zambia for some performances after having been in the country in 2007. The post Ukwa In Lusaka appeared first on Zambia Reports.

The Fwayo Tembo-Wedson Nyirenda soap opera has just updated itself with the Lusaka Dynamos midfielder making a last minute change of heart to join the Chipolopolo camp. Tembo ironically became the last player to join camp after all the foreign based players summoned reported for duty. The unsettled yet talented Tembo had initially turned down the call for national duty on grounds of having a frosty relationship with coach Wedson Nyirenda whose high premium on discipline does not sit well with the player. Tembo got on the wrong side of the coach after having refused to travel for an international friendly match against South Africa after confirming his availability. However, the player was left out of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) fixtures against South Africa that ended up in qualification. Tembo’s backers rose up in arms demanding his inclusion for the September round of FIFA World Cup qualifiers with Nyirenda acceding to their demands. The player however loudly turned down the call up but seems to have thought better with a change of heart. Tembo has teamed up with his colleagues at the Chipolopolo camp at Golden Peacock in Lusaka.
