NAPSA Stars Football Club has refuted media reports suggesting that it had resumed training in Chongwe.

Club Media Liaison Officer Gwen Chipasula clarified that the team has been having gym sessions from Mika Convention Centre and have been put in small groups in order for them to keep fit.

“Contrary to the reports, the club would like to place it on record that neither has the team resumed the trainings nor is it camped in Chongwe. We are continuing to practice Covid-19 health guidelines such as social distancing as guided by the Government through the Ministry of Health,” Ms. Chipasula said.

Ms. Chipasula added: “We have always said that the health of all our players comes first because we care for them and their families, and in the midst of the pandemic, we continue to put in place strict measures to ensure that all players follow them before, during and after the gym sessions.”

She advised media institutions to verify their stories with the clubs Communication Officers before publishing as she believes punverified reports have potential to mislead the public.

Earlier on Thursday, news emerged from some sections of the media that the super league had resumed training and has camped its team at a lodge in Chongwe.

According to a source, it was rumored that Napsa Stars have been in camp since Sunday, May 24, 2020.
