Chanda Mwaba (born October 2, 1988) is a Zambian football midfielder who is currently a free agent.

Mwaba was one of the Zambians who came to RoPS at 2007. Mwaba was then 18-years old. He came along with Nchimunya Mweetwa, Stephen Kunda, Chileshe Chibwe and Zeddy Saileti's younger brother Derik Saileti for a trial. Quintet (Mweetwa, Kunda, Chibwe, Mwaba) got contract's with RoPS. Mwaba signed with RoPS 4-years long contract (until end of season 2010) but extended it after season 2007 to 2012. After the season RoPS won promotion to Veikkausliiga (Finnish Premier Division) and Mwaba was called by Kari Virtanen the most promising 18-year-old in Finland he has seen. Mwaba also received praise from Jyrki Heliskoski the former HJK and former Finnish National team coach.

On 15 November 2008 RoPS informed that Mwaba has been loaned to his former club Power Dynamos F.C. and he played some games with Stephen Kunda on guest player status. During the loan spell, Mwaba scored Power Dynamos' first goal against Roan United, the game eventually ended in 2-2 draw.

On July 12, 2009 game against FF Jaro, Pietarsaari Mwaba gave four assists to RoPS goals, when the home side won 5-3 game played in Rovaniemi. In the game he also made the pass which lead penalty, but which was missed later by Mika-Matti Maisonvaara.

On August 6, 2009 Mwaba was first time called up for Zambia's national football team by Hervé Renard. He impressed Renard, who was before watching the game against FC Lahti. Zambia faced Ghana in London on August 12, but Mwaba and seven other Zambian players didn't get their visas in time because of heavy workload in the Embassy.

Mwaba and eight other RoPS players got sacked in the spring of 2011 due to match fixing scandal.
