Zambia’s Mwape, two others gifted lands after Falcons win

Chingola Municipal Council rewarded coach Bruce Mwape, his assistant Charity Nthala and goalkeeper Hazel Nali – all natives of the community in Zambia – with expensive plots of land following their impressive performance at the recently concluded Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco, APROKOVIBES Sports Extra reports.

The Copper Queens were the surprise package at the tournament held in Morocco after they finished with a bronze medal following their 1-0 victory against Super Falcons in the third-place play-off fixture.

According to a statement from the Football Association of Zambia, Chingola Mayor Johnson Kang’ombe said the trio were rightfully rewarded after putting Chingola on the map and deserved to be appreciated.

“We want to honour our people with a token of appreciation which will go a long way. We are going to give the piece of land [each] so we will see to it that they are appreciated,” the statement reads.

“They have done us proud; they have done mother Zambia proud by being part of the team that qualified for the World Cup for the first time and for coming number three at the WAFCON.”

Mwape thanked the council for the gesture by stating, “The support that your office rendered to us throughout the tournament was overwhelming and helped us achieve the results that we needed.

“We count ourselves lucky to be among those identified and selected to be the beneficiaries.

“Our commitment to you is that we shall use the land to greater use, and in return contribute to the council’s revenue streams.”

Apart from the bronze medal, Zambia also clinched qualification for the World Cup.
