Veteran Kitwe-based female soccer administrator Martha Shonga has died. Shonga, 58, died on Tuesday and was laid to rest at Nkana East cemetery in Kitwe.
Former FAZ vice-president Emmanuel Munaile described Shonga as a hard-working administrator.
Commonly known as Ba Martha, the long-serving Kitwe United official succumbed to an illness and passed away at Kitwe Central Hospital.
The Kitwe iron lady once served as Zambian women’s national team manager.
And FAZ executive committee member Kapambwe Kabaso said the nation has lost a gallant administrator who contributed to the growth of the game in the country.
