GBFC’s poor performance displeases Army Commander
Lusaka, February 15, ZANIS ——The Zambia Army Commander Paul Mihova has described the poor performance of the Green Buffaloes Football Club (GBFC) exhibited in the past few years as not only displeasing but also embarrassing.
Lieutenant General Mihova pointed out that GBFC was known to be a football power house and wondered what has gone wrong for the club’s performance to decline.
Speaking in Lusaka today during the GBFC Annual General Meeting that saw a new Executive Committee being elected, the Army Commander noted that GBFC conquered many clubs in both Southern and Central Africa.
Lieutenant General Mihova stressed that the club won a lot of leagues and major trophies and this brought glory to the Army and the nation at large.
He pointed out that he was aware that GBFC is one of the clubs that receives a lot of support and funding hence all efforts must be made to improve its performance.
Lieutenant General Mihova has since directed the newly elected Executive Committee to work extra hard to improve the club’s performance and reclaim the lost glory and the leading role in the nation.
He assured that the Army would continue to support the club with the available resources in order to help improve it.
General Mihova has also issued a directive to all serving personnel starting from officers to soldiers for each to contribute Fifty Kwacha rebased towards sports funds as a way of supporting GBFC.
He added that all serving personnel will be able to support the club in a small way stating that it will be the role of the players and the coaching bench to pay back what will be invested through producing good results.
General Mihova reminded the footballers that their performance has a direct bearing on the morale of the Army saying that they should not dampen the supporters’ morale by producing bad results.
The newly elected Execute Committee comprises of Secretary Kenneth Ndila, his Vice Francis Ngula, Treasurer Happy Nyambe with four Committee Members Perry Hambiliki, William Kamanga, Derick Chileshe and Emmanuel Chewe.
