The move has been occasioned by Zambia’s inability to fly to Kenya in time for the friendly. Kenya were to face the Chipolopolo on November 14 in Machakos County.
“It’s unfortunate that Zambia will not be able to honor the friendly due to what we have understood to be logistical issues around the team’s travel,” said FKF CEO Robert Muthomi.
“As such we have been forced to cancel the friendly,” added Muthomi.
The news about the cancellation comes a day after Harambee Stars coach Stanley Okumbi had named a provisional squad of 28 local-based players to report to camp.
