Zanaco and Zambia Under-17 head coach Mumamba Numba’s wife, Salome, has died after collapsing at her home in Woodlands. Salome and Numba have been child-hood sweethearts. They moved together from the Copperbelt to Lusaka where Numba was to join Zanaco as a player, a team he has moved on to spearhead as coach post his playing career. Numba’s wife is also heralded among family members as taking very good care of Numba’s late brother’s children.
