Zambia’ soccer legend and current president of Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) Kalusha Bwalya has allegedly beaten up Post sports journalist Augustine Mukoka.
According to City Press, the incident happened in Cape Town, South Africa on Saturday when the two met at Press Day of the World Cup 2010 draws.
Kalusha is said to have slapped Augustine in the face.
And Post Newspaper Managing Editor Amos Malupenga has announced that the matter has been reported to the police.
Malupenga said in a phone interview that though Kalusha apologized to Augustine, the apology was not in good faith and Kalusha is unrepentant.
He said the apology by Kalusha Bwalya was not initiated by him but by FIFA officials who felt disgusted by the behavior of Kalusha.
He said this is not the first time Kalusha has behaved in that manner saying he has always showed hostility to Post journalists.
