Mzansi Snubbed: ‘Age-Less Kennedy Mweene’ Replacement Lauded    

While the South African senior national team’s head coach Molefi Ntseki confirmed that Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Kearyn Baccus is one of the players that are monitored for possible selection for Bafana Bafana, the same cannot be said about goalkeeper Cyril Chibwe after he opted against playing for Mzansi.

The Polokwane City shot-stopper had been called up for the recent Nelson Mandela Challenge match for Bafana and Mali, but rejected the call-up.

Ntseki confirmed last week that the 27-year-old had been called up as replacement for the injured Brandon Peterson, when they learnt that the keeper had chosen to play for Zambia – the country where his father is from – though he was born in the North West. 

Chibwe went on to make his debut for Zambia on the weekend during their international friendly match against Benin. 

Linos Chalwe – a former PSL player himself who turned out for the likes of Manning Rangers and Bush Bucks and is now the general secretary of Footballers and Allied Workers Union of Zambia (FAWUZ) – welcomed Chibwe’s decision.

“Footballers and Allied Workers Union of Zambia (FAWUZ) General Secretary Linos Chalwe has welcomed the decision by South Africa based goalkeeper Mwenya Chibwe to turn up for Zambia after having switched his nationality,” FAWUZ said in a statement.

“Chalwe, a former Chipolopolo international met Chibwe at Football House this afternoon. The Polokwane City shot-stopper completed his switch to Zambia last week and made his debut for the Chipolopolo on Sunday in an international friendly against Benin. Chibwe is being touted as one of the possible replacements for the age-less Kennedy Mweene,” said FAWUZ in their statement.
