Football Association of Zambia – FAZ president Andrew Kamanga has cried that his predecessor Kalusha Bwalya’s presence at the ongoing CAF under 20 tournament is destabilising the running of football in the country but some Kalusha fans and other football administrators have said that Kamanga is just a jittery failure who has failed to manage FAZ and football in the nation.
In a letter dated 1st March 2017 to CAF president Issa Hayatou, Kamnga complains that in spite of his earlier communication to Hayatou not to allow Kalusha to be in his delegation and the assurance that he was guided not to interfere, his supporters have continued to call for his impeachment.
But a Copperbelt based FAZ councillor has told the Watchdog that Kamanga was a cry baby who thought running FAZ was that simple but has now failed. He distanced Kalusha from the calls for impeachment which he said have reached an advanced stage. Kamanga has also allegedly been creating a sour relationship with some staff at Football house and openly admitted of having a frosty relationship with the 1988 African footballer of the year.
“Kamanga is just a failure who has openly demonstrated that he is incapable contrary to our expectations when we voted for him but what I can tell him is that we are certainly going ahead with the impeachment and Kalu is not part of this. This infighting by Kamanga and Kalu is bringing soccer down and better he gets out of the FAZ seat,” said the councillor.
