Government to interfere in FAZ

The National Sports Council of Zambia will soon engage the Football Association of Zambia on the inclusion of a vote of No Confidence notice on the agenda of the FAZ AGM.

This follows FAZ’s refusal to include the motion on the agenda as agreed during a meeting held with FIFA last year.

National Sports Council of Zambia Chairperson CHIFUMU BANDA says the role of the National Council of Zambia and the ministry of Sports who attended a meeting in Zurich was to ensure the motion was included on the agenda.

BANDA said the Sports Council will issue a comprehensive statement on the matter.

He said in an interview that it is the wish of the Sports Council that the problems that have rocked FAZ come to an end for the development of football in the country.

FAZ rejects Mazabuka United’s motion

On Saturday, FAZ Interim General Secretary SIMATAA SIMATAA said the Kalusha Bwalya led FAZ executive had rejected the vote of no confidence motion by Mazabuka United to be included on AGM agenda.

SIMATAA who is also Amakumbi Stars proprietor however said only Mazabuka United had written to FAZ to include the vote of no confidence motion at the March 26 FAZ Annual General Meeting and not the two thirds majority.

SIMAATA said the petitioners had therefore called for an Emergency Council Meeting in Ndola on March 25, 2011 for members to make their final decision.

And FAZ Vice President Boniface Mwamelo also confirmed that that only MAZABUKA united had written to the association and NOT the two thirds majority to have the vote of no confidence included as an agenda item at the March 26 AGM in Kitwe.

Mwamelo said FAZ was however still open to receive submissions and requests from clubs for inclusion on the agenda of the AGM.
