Kamanga mourns former Chipolopolo Manager Solly Pandor

Solly Pandor was a dedicated servant of the game, a manager whose service has left an indelible mark on Zambian football and whose legacy of service to the game and the country will endure into the future, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has said.
Speaking after attending the funeral of long serving former Chipolopolo team manager Pandor in Lusaka yesterday, FAZ president Andrew Kamanga said the death of Pandor was saddening. Kamanga prayed that God Almighty strengthens the family stressing that the entire football fraternity mourned the loss of one of the longest serving managers of the game with the family.
“We are profoundly saddened about the death of Solly. The success and management of the national team we see today owes part of its success to the foundations that such long serving and dedicated men like Solly woked hard to establish,” Kamanga said.
Pandor died early Wednesday and was interred evening at the Leopards Hill cemetery after prayers at the Burma Road Mosque in line with Islamic traditions. Pandor’s last major assignment was the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Angola in 2010. He managed Chipolopolo at five Nations Cup final tournaments.
The FAZ president attended the service which was preceded with body viewing at his residence before the service at the mosque. Acting FAZ General Secretary Sam Phiri, Licensing Manager Erick Mwanza and Technical Director Honour Janza also attended the service.
