It is with shock and profound sadness that we inform the football community of the sudden passing of our assistant coach Dennis ‘Chesa Mpama’ Lota last night from malaria.
The former Zambian international striker served Swallows with loyalty and dedication both as player and as assistant coach for many years.
At the height of his career he was playing for Orlando Pirates where he won the PSL Top Goal Scorer Award.
He was a talented young coach and commanded great respect in the dressing room.
The club sends deepest condolences to Dennis’s family and friends. We are devastated by his untimely loss.
He will be sorely missed in the Nest.
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
Funeral details will follow when available.
