THE Zambia Rugby Union (ZRU) has appointed Workers Compensation Fund Control Board (WCFCB) commissioner and chief executive officer Elizabeth Nkumbula as the patron for the Zambia Women Rugby Association (ZWRA).
ZRU president Martin Musunka said in an interview yesterday that the decision to appoint Nkumbula as the ZRWA patron was made at the union’s first executive committee meeting held at Chabanga Lodge in Ndola on Saturday.
Musunka said the union recognised Nkumbula’s vast experience in the sports arena.
He said her impeccable credentials in the corporate world to help equip women rugby administrators with the necessary administrative skills as Zambia pursues opportunities of growing women rugby.
Musunka said he was confident that Nkumbula, a former hockey player and golfer, would help drive women rugby to greater heights as it was a fast growing segment of rugby globally.
“We are confident that Dr Elizabeth Nkumbula will be able to effectively drive women rugby to higher heights and that they will help build capacity among rugby women administrators in Zambia at all levels,” Musunka said.
