The Ministry of Home Affairs has announced that it has cleared Scotland based defender Frankie Musonda to feature for Chipolopolo.
He was born in England to a Zambian father and English mother.
Ministry spokesperson Nephas Chifuta said the citizenship board has already issued authority for Musonda, 24, to be issued with the passport.
“The position from the perspective of the Ministry of Home Affairs and Internal Security is that we did receive a write up from FAZ (Football Association of Zambia) requesting for the naturalization of Frankie Musonda and Aime Mabika and this issue was actually submitted to the committee that presides over matters relating to citizenship. So upon reviewing the two cases the citizenship board has already issued authority for Frankie Musonda to be issued with the passport,” Chifuta told ZNBC.
Musonda recently applied for Zambian citizenship.
