Former Football Players Association (Ffpa) has said it plans to extend facilitating technical and vocational training to its members from the Central and Northern regions next year.
Ffpa chairperson Ojukwu Malunga said despite the obstacle they face to raise fees for 43 members from the South, who successfully completed skills development training in different fields, the body is determined to settle the dues and move on.
Those that attended the training were unable to graduate and get their certificates due to Ffpa’s failure to pay the K1.7 million fees.
“We are aware that we still have a hurdle to clear and we are in the process of doing that, but that will not stop us from further plans for next year and our target is to extend similar opportunities to our members in the Centre and North,” said Malunga who was accompanied by his deputy Lawrence Mnenula.
Among those that attended the courses were Reggie Karim, Ganizani Malunga, Elia Kananji, Leo Mpulula, John Phiri, Mnenula and Victor Mpinganjira.
