Katongo: Zambia must do more for crash families
Written by cornelius kabwe on April 30, 2018
Christopher Katongo, who captained Zambia to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, says his country should do more to recognise the players and officials who died in 1993 in a plane crash off the coast of Gabon.
The exact cause of the fatal crash on the night of 27 into 28 April has never been fully established.
All 25 members of the Chipolopolo squad, including coaches, as well as five crew members died as they were travelling for a World Cup qualifier against Senegal in Dakar.
Katongo says:I know the government is doing something – there’s a heroes stadium – but these people died in battle and we need to remember them in a way that the families will feel appreciated.”
