Congratulations to FAZ election winners, time to move on- says losing candidate

Filed under: Latest News,Sports |

The losing Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) vice presidential candidate Gideon Mwenya says the football family must put the elections behind them and support the winners.

FAZ elected new office bearers on Saturday in Livingstone at Fairmount Hotel with Andrew Kamanga re-elected to lead the association for yet another four-year term.

Meanwhile, in a rare show of maturity, Mwenya who lost to Justin Mumba after marshalling 31 votes against Mumba’s 55 said just like football elections had winners and losers.

Mwenya said Zambian football needs to rise above divisions and unite.

“The elections have passed; I would like to urge everyone that participated to move on.

“It is like a game of football, it is played for 90 minutes and once the final whistle blows you shake hands and move on,” said the Konkola Mine Police chairperson.

“We have to unite for Mother Zambia. We have always been contributing to Zambian football and we will continue.”

He added: “I have always shunned talking about differences because to an extent I have never been part of them. The president talked about unity of purpose and that is what is important and if you are united you can achieve.”
