 Daka, Mwepu stage memorial tournament for Kalale

Chipolopolo stars Enock ‘Computer’ Mwepu and reigning CAF Young Player of the Year Patson Daka have organized a memorial tournament for former teammate at the Zambia U17 level Changwe Kalale in his home town of Kalulushi.

Mwepu and Daka who are on the books of Austrian champions and Europa League campaigners Redbull Salzburg have staged a tournament in honour of Kalale who died last year after having suffered damage to his spine in an accident in 2014.

Kalale was left paralysed by the accident in 2014 and was confined to the wheelchair until his death in December 2017.

The talented teenager was involved in an accident en-route to joining the Chipolopolo camp in December 2014.
He was in the company ex-Zambia defender Nyambe Mulenga and keeper Satchmo Chakawa on a Zesco United bus.

Mwepu and Daka were teammates with Kalale in the junior ranks of the Zambia national team and the duo have opted to honour their colleague.

The tournament is currently underway at Chambishi Rugby Club in Chambishi Township/FAZ.
