PSL based stars Collins Mbesuma of Mpumalanga Black Aces, Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene and Bloemfontein Celtic defender Davies Nkausu are among the recipients of the Special Single Class Golden Jubilee medal.
Zambia President Michael Sata will honour members of the team that died in the 1993 air crash off the coast of Gabon en route to Senegal.
Also on the 50th Independence Day anniversary honours list are members of the Zambia team that reached the 1988 Seoul Olympic football tournament quarterfinal, which includes Kalusha Bwalya and Manfred Chabinga.
