CHIPOLOPOLO coach Wedson Nyirenda says he hopes the law will take its course on fans that attacked striker Alex Ng’onga’s mother’s home in the aftermath of Zambia’s 1-0 World Cup loss to Nigeria.
Five people allegedly attacked the residence of Charity Sakanya on Saturday and damaged roofing sheets.
Police have since arrested the culprits who are in custody.
Nyirenda said Ng’onga had a good game in Nigeria and people want to take pictures with him.
“What kind of people are we? Instead of thanking your own man, you want to attack him. And I would love the law to take its full course on those people who attacked his mother because we cannot allow a few disgruntled people to start taking charge of the nation’s football by propagating hate. There is this culture of hate that has come into Zambian football that we have to come down now and those people have to be a good example,” said Nyirenda.
