Red Arrows coach Honour Janza has been sent on forced leave.
According to the Air Force sponsored club, Janza and two assistant coaches, Joel Bwalya and Nchimunya Mweetwa have been sent on administrative leave to reflect on recent performance of the team.
Club media liaison and public relations officer Misheck Kalembwe said in a press statement yesterday that the development was announced by Zambia Air Force chief of training Brigadier General Henry Nyundu, who is in charge of sport at ZAF.
“Red Arrows Football club has sent head coach Honour Janza and two of his assistants Joel Bwalya and Nchimunya Mweetwa on administrative leave with immediate effect in order for the trio to reflect on the performance of the team,” Kalembwe said.
Kalembwe said Chisi Mbewe has been appointed interim coach and will be assisted by Songwe Chalwe while Kalililo Kakonje and Medson Luwawa remain as goalkeeper trainers.
Charles Kafula will act as technical director.
Arrows has recently recorded a streak of poor results.
The ZAF-sponsored side that camped in Spain for pre-season training is currently 13th on the log with 27 points.
