Kamanga ‘clobbers’ Kalusha Bwalya for FAZ presidency

Andrew Kamanga has been elected as president of the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) replacing Kalusha Bwalya after polling 163 out of 324 votes cast.
The announcement by Chairman of the Electoral Commission Sikwana Lukangaba was met with jubilation at Moba Hotel, as Kamanga prepares to be at the helm of Zambia’s football governing body for four years.
Kalusha was seen as the frontrunner, but Andrew Kamanga had an impressive momentum in the lead up to the election. Henschel Chitembeya, a former executive committee member, was always seen as an outsider.
Kalusha polled 156 while Henschel Chitembeya received a single vote. Four votes were declared invalid.
And Richard Kazala is the new FAZ vice president after he polled 117 votes trailed by Pivoty Simwanza with 107 votes. Mofya Chisala got 58 votes with Cephas Kampamba Katongo getting 28 votes while Boniface Mwamelo only managed a paltry 8 votes. There were 5 spoiled ballots.
The first ballots to be counted where those for the position of Committee Member where a total of 28 candidates jostled for 6 positions in the FAZ executive.
Earlier on the council accepted the financial report that was presented by Treasurer Rixie Mweemba. However the councillors have proposed an inclusion of match officiating fees in the budget for 2016 to be presented at a reconvened AGM.
