Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda has summoned 26 players for a local camp as he continues to build for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers. Nyirenda has handed debut call ups to a host of players among them Nkana goalkeeper Kelvin Malunga, Lumwana Radiants midfielders Eddie Sinyangwe and Hilary Bwalya. The first local camp culminated into an international friendly against Zimbabwe during the FIFA International window in March that ended 0-all. Nyirenda has his sights on assembling a strong team that will carry the Zambian flag during the qualifiers with a fixture against Swaziland in July in the knockout stages of the CHAN qualifiers. Team manager Chris Chibuye released the names to Fazfootball.com saying the team will enter into residential camp on Sunday and will break on Wednesday. Chibuye said the local camps will help Nyirenda have a look at the local players that could be fitted in the Chipolopolo set up. He said Zesco United players had been excused as they would be out on continental duty in Nigeria and only return in the country mid next week. “We will be in camp starting from Sunday and the coach has added more players that he wants to look at,†Chibuye said. Meanwhile, Zambia has slumped seven places on the FIFA/COCA COLA World Rankings to occupy 26th place on the global stage and 26th in Africa. The spectacular fall is largely due inactivity having only played Cameroun in November last year in a 1-all result in the Russia World Cup qualifier and a modest international friendly against Zimbabwe on March 26, 2017. Zambia has slipped from 90th to 97th position with three places shy of 100th ranking. FULL SQUAD: GOALKEEPERS: Allan Chibwe (Power Dynamos), Kelvin Malunga (Nkana), Racha Kola (Zanaco) DEFENDERS: Billy Mutale (Power Dynamos), George Chilufya, Ziyo Tembo, Taonga Bwembya (Zanaco), Given Sinyangwe, Donashano Malama (both Nkana), Mumbi Mweene, Adrian Chama (both Green Buffaloes), Isaac Siamujompa (Nchanga Rangers) MIDFIELDERS: Fwayo Tembo, Kelvin Mubanga (both Power Dynamos), Eddie Sinyangwe (Lumwana Radiants), Richard Kasonde, Augustine Mulenga (both Zanaco), Clatous Chama (Lusaka Dynamos), Austin Banda (Napsa Stars), Hilary Bwalya (Lumwana Radiants), Jacob Ngulube (Nkana) STRIKERS: Ronald Kampamba (Nkana), Mwila Phiri (Green Eagles), Justin Shonga (Nkwazi), Green Lwitika (Green Eagles), Chitiya Mususu (Napsa Stars).

Former MMD member Sunday Chanda has accepted his new role as ruling Patriotic Front director of media with humility and gratitude. Chanda, a staunch campaigner for Pres. Lungu, has been rewarded with the role of party director media after he fell out of favour with the inner circle over a year ago. He writes, “it is with a deep sense of gratitude and humility to His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and the Secretary General of the Party Hon Davies Mwila that I have received the news of my appointment as Media Director of the PF. “This has indeed come at a time when others could have been more qualified and in a position to do better; I do not take this gesture lightly. With the support from the Party leadership and membership of the PF, I pray that I can add my the little to the more. Thank you for the messages of goodwill coming from members of the public who may not necessarily be PF. Your contributions and advise will be valued on this Journey. To the PF family….Let’s get to work!” The Patriotic Front has elevated foot soldie Chanda to the position Director of Media. Chanda has since becoming a PF member regularly stood in the line of fire in defence of everything the ruling party will take. The appointment also comes a consolation after being by-passed for adoption as candidate for Kanchbiya, a seat he lost when he attempted to contest on the MMD ticket in 2011. Previous occupants of that position are Chanda Mfula and the political troublemaker Brian Hapunda. The announcement was made today by PF secretary general Davis Mwila.
