FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala says the purchase of testing kits will enable the Association carry out its mandate without facing major challenges.

He said FAZ will work with health officials to ensure the exercise is done correctly.
Meanwhile, Kashala has indicated that the FAZ/MTN Super league trophy will be driven to the Copperbelt and will however around Kitwe on Thursday ahead of crowning the 2020 champions.
He said Nkana, Napsa Stars, Forest Rangers, Zesco United, Zanaco and Green Eagles are all in contention for the title.
Kashala said if any team outside the Copperbelt wins the title, their crowning will be done on Friday.
And Kashala said it is likely that Nkana football Club will be given three points and three goals as Nakambala are not likely to travel to fulfill the fixture.
