He added that he had plans to develop football from the grass root in the region by uplifting upcoming coaches in the region.
“We will be having a CAF C Coaching Course in Mzimba this April and it is my duty to encourage as many coaches as possible to attend this course. I will also work hard with my committee to improve relationship among coaches in the region by having monthly meetings to share ideas in football coaching,” explained Kazuwa.
Kazuwa is a holder of CAF B coaching license.
