Authorities Deny TP Mazembe Landing in DR Congo
In a move that is believed to be linked with the club owner Moise Katumbi's presidential ambitions, the plane carrying TP Mazembe players was denied permission to land in the Democratic Republic of Congo, forcing the CAF Confederation Cup champions to land in Zambia. Katumbi was forced into exile in 2016 after being accused of hiring foreign mercenaries to overthrow Kabila's government.
