Nkana Coach Masautso Mwale DIES

Nkana Coach Masautso Mwale has died in a road traffic accident.

The accident happened near Maposa area and the Nkana coach was pronounced dead upon arrival at Thompson Hospital in Luanshya.

Nkana Vice President Patrick Njobvu confirmed the death of Mwale to ZamFoot moments after the tragic crash which has occured on the eve of the CAF Confederations Cup group game against Sewe Sport of Ivory Coast.

Chipolopolo coach Patrice Beaumelle expressed shock at the death of the former Chipolopolo Assistant coach.

I m just told about the terrible news. I am shocked and sad. May his soul rest in peace. I am speechless and my thoughts are with his family and friends. Sincere condolences to Nkana FC and the football family. Zambia has lost a great man who was dedicated selfless coach,” Beaumelle said.

FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya says he is saddened by what he called the “tragic loss of Nkana coach Masauso Mwale.

Coach Massy, the Zambian coach of the year for 2012, died in a road accident Friday night.

Meanwhile, thousands of Zambians are expressing their shock and sadness at news of Mwale’s sudden death. Fans, football administrators and other commentators have taken to social media to offer messages of condolences with many recounting moments with the coach who won Nkana a record 12th league championship last year.

Former FAZ Spokesperson Eric Mwanza described Masauso as a fine gentleman, a coach rising fast with huge promise for the future of Zambian football and one always eager and ready to learn.”

    Leadership that is full of nothing but shit has caused this.How long will the kitwe-ndola road be a single way.Its pathetic that the only thing the PF guys are doing is stealing,fattening up and selling this country to the chinese;to expense of wedding off their daughters.

    rest rest we will miss u , what a loss.we lost Denis and now it is u why?

  30. Geoffrey Siame   May 24, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    Massy was a nice man. Surely, can’t government see that the bizzare closure of roads between Ndola-Kitwe is contributing to these accidents.

  31. kakolwe   May 24, 2014 at 7:33 pm

    Accidents Do Not Just Happen, They Are Caused.
    I speak against those blaming govt for works on roads to be the cause. Do not jump the gun, investigations will show us the cause.
    SAD Death indeed.
