urkey based striker Jacob Mulenga has been dropped by Chipolopolo coach Honour Janza for the sides forthcoming last two 2015 Afcon Group F qualifiers.

The 30-year-old striker is not on the 26-man list Janza released on Friday to face Mozambique away on November 15 and Cape Verde at home on November 19.

Mulenga has not enjoyed much game time under Janza especially in October after coming on as a late substitute in Zambia’s Group F doubleheader against Niger on October 11 away and October 15 at home.

However, Nkana striker Ronald Kampamba keeps his place after impressing and scoring in Chipolopolo’s 1-1 friendly draw against Cote d’Ivoire on October 25 in Lusaka.

Kampamba has scored 18 goals in all competition for his Nkana so far in the 2014 season on top of his Chipolopolo goal a week ago.

Meanwhile, Bloemfontein defender Davies Nkausu returns after a long-term injury to add some depth to Zambia’s shaky right-back where the competition has been between Nkana’s Donashano Malama of Kabaso Chongo of TP Mazembe in DR Congo.

Defender Aaron Katebe of Zimbabwean club FC Platinum is also in the team after coming on as a substitute in the Cote d’Ivoire friendly in Lusaka.
