Government has promoted FIFA referee Janny Sikazwe for his outstanding performance.

Central Province Permanent Secretary Chanda Kabwe says Sikazwe is the Senior Education officer in charge of Broadcast in Central Province.

Mr. Kabwe says the Provincial Administration worked with the Ministry of General Education to effect the promotion.

The Permanent Secretary says the Provincial Administration will not hesitate to recommend for promotion people who work hard in the province.

He told TV2 News that Sikazwe deserves the promotion because he has represented Zambia and Central province at the highest level of football.

Among Sikazwe’s achievements include officiating the 2016 Club World Cup FINAL, 2017 Africa Cup five between Egypt and Cameroon, as well as being shortlisted for the 2018 Russia World Cup.

Sikazwe will also officiate at the Under 20 World Cup next month in South Korea.

  1. What? How does being a good referee relate to this mans effectiveness in his role at the ministry. This circus in Zambia is really deep rooted!

      • You remember Christopher Katongo being promoted to staff Sergeant for his prowess on the soccer field and not comat field? Joke hey…I respect Sikazwe so much and everytime he officiates an international match I watch him instead of the soccer match…..but promoting him to any position outside refereeing could be setting him for failure. Let FIFA do that..they are his paymaster.

        • Your comparing this with Christopher Katongo’s promotion is misplaced. The army has a sports section so Katongo is promoted within that sports section.

  2. Teachers study not less than 33 courses at undergraduate. Including communication skills regardless of subject specialisation. So the post is ok. Trs are versatile and can fit in most fields if not all.

  3. Only uneducated characters like webman will say negative things about Janny Sikazwe. Alex Ferguson was honored by the queen to Sir because of his successes in soccer which is the highest owner one can receive.
    Janny Sikazwe is educated and deserves to be elevated at any time, thumbs up to him.

    • Its you who is uneducated. Ferguson’s knighthood is one given to citizens for their exemplary perfomance in any field. The award encompasses all professions. Webman has anargument because Sikazwe is a referee in his spare time. Its not his core profession. In his profession he should not be judged by how he fares as a referee

  4. all I can see. This man has put Zambia on the world map through the duties he does in football. the country is honouring him for that. We are looking at the pride he has brought…just do something as well instead of being critic of other people. You will remain forever.
