Chief government spokesperson honourable Dora Siliya has indicated that government is not ready to give financial support to any football team in Zambia.
Siliya was responding to a request made by Monze Swallows, asking zambian government through H.E. Edgar Lungu to buy them a bus for transport duringg soccer season.
Siliya who is also information minister said there are alot of rich people in this country who can help the team than depending on the president alone.
The minister said this in a telephone interview with ZANIS sports’ journalists this morning.
“I’m very much sure that Zambia’s richest person comes from that area [southern Province], why can’t they support their local team?” asked Siliya.
With only three weeks before the kick-off of the FAZ/MTN Super league, newly premier league promoted side Monze Swallows are still using a hired light truck Toyota Canter to cover any possible movement, including friendly matches.
