“He left to deliver some items to his family in Ndola but we got concerned when he did not communicate his whereabouts. When we tried to find out where he was, that is when we learnt of the accident and his death. We were not given details of what happened but his body was immediately taken to the hospital in Luanshya,” Saileti said.

Saileti added that Mwale was alone in his Toyota Harrier when the accident occurred.

Nkana are scheduled to play Sewe Sport in the CAF Confederation Cup on Saturday (May 24, 2014) but Mwale’s sudden death has cast doubts on whether the match will go ahead as scheduled.

Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) Communications Manager, Nkweto Tembwe, announced on Friday evening that FAZ was in consultation with the Match Commissioner to decide the fate of the match.


Confederation of African Football (CAF) Confederation Cup regulations provide for postponement of a match of up to 72 hours when a national mourning has been declared during the presence of the opposing team, upon request by the organising country.

The organising country must use the most expeditious means to inform CAF, the opposing team, the commissioner and the referees.

A period of national mourning has not been declared for Mwale in Zambia.

Mwale was the coach of Nkana FC when they eliminated KCC from the CAF Champions league this year on 2-4 goal aggregates.
