Zambian international striker Fashion Sakala paid a courtesy call to Hakainde Hichilema in Glasgow.
Sakala brought gifts of a scarf, jersey and balls from his club Rangers FC as memorabilia for President Hichilema’s visit to Scotland.
Posting on facebook, Hichilema said Sakala represents the great talent in our youths who should be encouraged to continue raising the bar higher and be good ambassadors for the country.
“We have a number of our young talented sportsmen and women both at home and abroad who should be encouraged to achieve more.
Sakala said his life mirrored that of President Hichilema as he also came from the village to play in one of the most competitive premier leagues in the world.
He said he admired the resilience of Mr. Hichilema as despite the numerous electoral losses over the years, he never gave up until he scored electoral victory and won.
