The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has hit out at allegations by some stakeholders and media houses that it’s President Kalusha Bwalya was scheming to become a ‘wamuyaya’ president.

FAZ Mommunications Manager Nkweto Tembwe said in a media statement that some stakeholders have unfairly accused the President of the Association of attempting to abrogate the provisions of the constitution for personal gain.

Tembwe said the allegations are not only false but a product of people who lack understanding of the provisions of the rules and regulations which govern football regards the presidency of the Association.

“Regards the presidency of the Association, we wish to remind stakeholders that the constitution of FAZ in its current form allows a candidate to contest this position with limitless terms,” Tembwe said.

“In addition, it is worth noting that the position of president like any other position in the executive committee goes to the candidate who wins an election through popular vote in a transparent democratic process.

It is therefore mind boggling to learn that stakeholders some who are privileged make absurd allegations when the FAZ constitution is a public document which was last amended in 2006 during the reign of Mr Teddy Mulonga,” he said

Tembwe pointed out that the constitution of the association cannot be changed by an individual or group of individuals outside the realms of the policy makers-the counsellors as it is a preserve of the FAZ council, which comprises of all the affiliate members of FAZ, adding that it is the only institution that can make changes or any amendments and again through a 2/3 majority voting for such alterations.

He reminded stakeholders that football is serious business managed and administered for and behalf of the Zambian people who demand excellence and rightly so.

“It is therefore imperative we remain focused and contribute diligently to the growth and development of Zambian football. That is our preoccupation at football house and nothing else,” he added.

“Football house would like to take this opportunity to remind stakeholders that members of the Association have a constitutional right to propose motions to be considered for discussion and debate at the annual general meeting (AGM). This right is being exercised freely and we wish to stress the point that these propositions do not necessarily reflect the views of the Association’s executive committee and secretariat. We are however duty bound to administratively facilitate such motions and proposals when they are tabled in line with the constitutional provisions of FAZ'” he said.

He stressed that Bwalya will never advocate for a life Presidency as he had other ambitions outside being FAZ president.

At the 2015 AGM it was indicated that the Association may convene an extra-ordinary meeting of the council were FIFA is expected to come and make a key note address regards management and administration of football in Zambia

  1. Kalusha Bwalya should go. Kuya bebele. Administration is not dribling of the ball even then there cames time when one can hang his boots not yaba Kalusha paka fye elyo babekatile ka penalt mu independence stadium. Great footballing 1988 footballer of the year must leave admnistration to capable hands otherwise bane the gentleman has failed us. We love him, he brought glory to Zambia but it is time to move on with other administrators. If there was a way Kalusha Bwalya should not even stand for any FAZ position.
