Promotion for Barbra Banda: Zambia’s Army Commander Recognizes Her with Sergeant Rank

Barbra Banda’s promotion to the rank of Staff Sergeant by Commander Zambia Army, Lieutenant General Sitali Dennis Alibuzwi, is a testament to her incredible determination and leadership on the football field.

As the Captain of Copper Queens and Orlando Pride Striker, she played a crucial role in the team’s triumph over the Atlas Lionesses in the Morocco versus Zambia Olympic 2024 Qualifiers.

Banda’s remarkable performance was characterized by her skill, resilience, and perseverance, as she scored two crucial goals to lead her side to the Women’s Football tournament to be held in Paris.

The Copper Queens’ success was made possible by the entire team’s fighting spirit, with Green Buffaloes Women’s Football Club’s Go Minder-Ngambo Musole making important saves to help secure the Copper Queens’ victory.

The promotion is a fitting recognition of Banda’s leadership qualities and dedication to the sport, which has made her an inspiration to many aspiring young footballers.

As one of the few women captains in football, Banda’s outstanding achievements have not gone unnoticed, and she continues to make strides in breaking the glass ceiling for women in sport.

Lt. Gen Alibuzwi’s recognition of Banda’s contribution to the national sports arena is also a testament to the continued commitment of the Zambia Army to the development of sports and the country’s young talent.
