Relief as Kalaba, ex-national team player, discharged from hospital 14 days after


Former national team player, Rainford Kalaba, has been discharged from the University Teaching Hospital (UTH).

Kalaba, 38, was admitted to UTH after being involved in a road traffic accident 14 days ago, Hospital Public Relations Officer, Nzeba Chanda, said.

“Today marks exactly 14 days from the time of his admission,” Chanda said in a statement issued in Lusaka on Friday.

She stated that Kalaba was going to recuperate at his family home.

Kalaba, aged 38, was involved in a road accident on April, 12, 2024 that occurred around 12:20 hours at Kafue S Corners, near Kafue Quarry and had been on admission since that day.

The accident involved a Howo truck horse with registration number AIC 805 and trailer number BAC 9540, driven by Muyunda Isaac, aged 32 years, of Kamwala South.

Kalaba was reportedly in a Mercedes Benz car, which collided with the truck.

The unmarked car was said to have been driven by an unidentified female driver of unknown residence who, police said, died on the spot.

“Unfortunately, she succumbed to her injuries at the scene of the accident,” Police Spokesperson Rae Hamoonga stated.
