ZAMBIA’S FORMER TRACK AND FIELD ATHLETE PRINCE MUMBA DONATES SHOES TO OYDC ATHLETES
Prince Mumba a Zambian former track and field athlete and currently president of the Prince Africa Track Foundation has donated over 50 pairs of shoes to the OYDC Zambia to be distributed to athletes.
Mumba following this donation pledged to work with the OYDC Zambia in future adding that he was amused to learn that the centre plans to revamp kids athletics.
He says OYDC Zambia is strategically located in an area where there is a lot of talent and if well utilised and supported it has the potential to produce talented young athletes who can later emerge national heroes in athletics and other sports disciplines.
Mumba used to specialise in the 800m event and was once a flagbearer for Zambia at the 2012 Summer Olympics Opening and Closing Ceremonies. He was born in Kitwe, Zambia.
In receiving the donated shoes OYDC Zambia Chief Executive Officer Dr Fredrick Chitangala thanked Prince Africa Track Foundation for this donation and disclosed that the process of revamping kids athletics at OYDC Zambia has reached an advanced stage.
Dr Chitangala reiterated the centre’s commitment to see that young athletes get to enjoy athletics training at the facility as renovations for the track and field commence in collaboration with various stakeholders.
He appeals to others to emulate the Prince Africa Track Foundation and consider working with the OYDC Zambia and help develop sports in the country not only at the grassroots but also elite level.
