THE Zambia Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation (ZBBFF) are in a race against time to raise the K50, 000 needed to host the 2017 Mr Independence contest at the Greek Olive in Kitwe tomorrow.
According to a statement released by ZBBFF president Emmanuel Chimuka, about 50 musclemen had so far confirmed participation.
Chimuka has since appealed to the cooperate world to come on board and help in them in hosting a successful event.
“ZBBFF is pleased to announce that 50 bodybuilders will be taking part in this year’s edition of Mr Independence contest which will be held in Kitwe,” he said.
He said the event will be hosted in Kitwe as part of the programme of spreading the sport countrywide.
“The move of hosting the tournament in Kitwe is aimed at spreading the sport to all parts of the country. Last year, the same tournament was hosted in Kabwe and we hope to keep spreading our tentacles,” Chimuka said
