Federation general secretary Brighton Chomba confirmed an interview that a 10 man technical committee will deliberate various
issues and then present budget and technical submissions to the mother body.
“This meeting will focus on planning for our boxers who will represent the nation at the Tokyo Olympic games next year, the
second issue to be discussed is about our boxing calendar ahead of 2021.
We need to plan now, so that later we submit out budget and programme to the National Olympic Committee of Zambia, the
government as well as other stakeholders so that they help us, as a boxing federation, in implementing the resolution of the
meeting,” he said.
The meeting will see participants converge in Kabwe from various parts of the country.
“We have called almost all the key persons as coaches to represent their clubs starting from Mazabuka up to Chililabombwe
that’s why we picked Kabwe because we looked at it as a central location.”
“You know we are in Covid-19 era so we expect those who will attend the meeting to adhere to the health guidelines,” Chomba
