Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili says the games will be played in honour of Liwewe who has contributed to the country’s football profile through his commentaries.

Kambwili says the matches will go ahead this Saturday, but that all the players will put on black bands and observe a minute of silence before starting the games.

He says this is also being done so that the premier league calendar is not disturbed.

Kambwili has told ZNBC sports that government has taken into consideration the time spent on preparations of the matches.

He says this also applies that the University of Zambia and Copperbelt University Matches which are also scheduled for this Saturday.

And the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation says football commentator Dennis Liwewe has left a big impact on Zambian football.

ZNBC Director of News and Current Affairs Kenneth Maduma says Liwewe’S commentary has inspired many people not only at the national broadcaster but the entire country and beyond.

Maduma says the Liwewe’S unique way of doing football commentaries on ZNBC radio will forever be cherished.

He said this when he and other ZNBC directors, including Director General Chibamba Kanyama visited the funeral house on Friday.

Among the Directors in the entourage were Berry Lwando of Programmes and Mukubesa Sanyambe from Human Resource.

And Liwewe’s son, Ponga has thanked ZNBC for providing a platform for the late veteran commentator.

Ponga says his father enjoyed a good working relationship with ZNBC.

Liwewe, 78 died at Levy Mwanawasa hospital on Tuesday, and will be put to rest in Lusaka on Saturday.

President Michael Sata has since declared a three days national mourning in honour of Liwewe.
