Prison Leopards FC Executive Committee Dissolved Amidst Struggles
In a significant development, the Executive Committee of Prison Leopards Football Club has been dissolved, according to an official statement from the Zambia Correctional Service High Command. The decision to dissolve the committee is effective immediately, with an interim committee appointed to oversee the club’s affairs until a substantive committee is put in place.
Prison Leopards, based in Kabwe, finds itself in a challenging position, currently occupying the 17th spot in the MTN Super League table with 14 points after playing 18 matches. The team’s campaign has been marked by adversity, with 10 defeats and only three victories so far.
As part of the restructuring, Assistant Superintendent Kennedy Chiyombwe has been appointed as the Club Team Manager, succeeding Senior Superintendent Kebby Luchanga. Joining the interim committee are Assistant Commissioner Bob Shaloba, Superintendent Morton Nsondo, Superintendent Sebastian Moonga, and Mr. Humphrey Shambana, who will work alongside Mr. Elijah Chembo.
The new committee faces the crucial task of revitalizing Prison Leopards and restoring the team to its past glory as one of the best-performing clubs in the Zambian Super League. The overarching goal is to navigate the team through the challenges, particularly focusing on survival in the league and avoiding relegation.
The interim committee’s appointment signals a commitment to rejuvenate the club and usher in a new era for Prison Leopards. The collective efforts of the committee members will be instrumental in steering the club toward a more positive trajectory in Zambian football. The football fraternity will be closely watching the developments as Prison Leopards strives for a resurgence under the guidance of the interim committee.
