A row has broken out at one of Lusaka’s posh restaurants over the continued racist attitude of its owners. Trouble ensued when Lusaka resident Mwika Mwambazi attempted to make a reservation for her birthday gig at the Horse Shoe in Lusaka’s Rhodespark area on saturday. But she was met with a horrific scene in which a black Zambian employee was being hurled with insults and racist comments by the place’s owners who are believed to be of Greek origin. Mwambazi, disgusted by the ordeal later took them on but was instead called “a foolish black woman” by Nikki Ioannou believed to be part of the proprietors. She was also told to “shut the f***** up” as she tried to defend the miserable and tormented Zambian worker who referred to at some point as a “good for nothing dog”.

Soccer enthusiast Brian Mulenga has caustioned FAZ against using Boyd Mkandawire in next year’s Africa Youth Championship as he was potentially overage. Mulenga says using Mkandawire at the continental Under-20 tournament will expose Zambia, the hosts, to a possible ban as the player had two official birth dates. BELOW IS BRIAN MULENGA’S WRITE UP DONT USE BOYD MKANDAWIRE FOR U-20 I have two birthdays on record for Boyd Mkandawire. One makes him 19 and the other 22. He was either born on Apr 11, 1997 or February 17, 1994. The February 17, 1994 birthdate was used in the COSAFA Cup against Rwanda the April 17,1997 is the one in use currently. To avoid scandals I would suggest the NAPSA Stars full back perhaps sits this one out. We have Zambians who deliver dossiers to opposing teams and they will do what they did last time, help embarass the nation as age cheats. Better safe than sorry. http://www.goal.com/…/zambia/116811/boyd-mkandawire/national http://www.eurosport.com/…/boyd-mkandawire_prs…/person.shtml The post Potential Scandal: Boyd Mkandawire Is Overage appeared first on Zambia Reports.
