KAUNDA Square nsolo players have called on the National Sports Council of Zambia to recognise the game as one of those needing developement.

Association chairman Samuel Phiri said indigenous games must be preserved for future generations.

“Slowly, the local games which we used to play as children are fading away and soon we may only read about them. Let the National Sports Council recognise the game and help preserve it,” Phiri said.

“Chiyatho also needs to be preserved. There is need for deliberate actions to preserve these games because they are part of our past and culture.”

He further called on well-wishers to help the association host a Christmas tournament.

“We are also asking for funding so that we can successfully host our Christmas tournament. We have been postponing since June. We are asking well-wishers to come on board and help us make this event a success,” said Phiri.
