Soccer legend Kalusha Bwalya’s 8-year reign as Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president has come to an end after he was defeated by long-time rival, Lusaka businessman Andrew Kamanga, in a tightly contested election at the on-going FAZ Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at Moba Hotel in Kitwe.

Kamanga beat incumbent Kalusha, who was seeking a third term, by 163 to 156 votes, while Henschel Chitembeya, a former executive committee member, managed just one vote.

The announcement by Chairman of the FAZ electoral commission Sikwana Lukangaba was met with jubilation, as Kamanga prepares to take his place at the helm of Zambia’s football governing body for the next four years.

 

And Chingola businessman Richard Kazala has been elected as FAZ vice-president after polling 117 votes, beating his closest rival, Pivoty Simwanza, who polled 107 votes. Mofya Chisala received 58 votes while Cephas Kampamba Katongo had 28 votes. Incumbent Boniface Mwamelo polled 8 votes. There were 5 spoiled ballots.

Lee Kawanu has been re-elected as Executive Committee Member and is joined by new members Blackwell Siwale, Brenda Kunda, Elijah Shenko Chileshe, Kabaso Kapambwe and Dr Joseph Mulenga.

Rixie Mweemba was elected unopposed for the position of Treasurer.
