FAZ president Andrew Kamanga has kept to his media friendly policy by responding to wide ranging issues on Hot FM’s Frank on Hot program. Kamanga has kept his doors open, even under attack, which has rarely been customary of the FAZ presidency. Tough and tested host Frank Mutubila also gave listeners an opportunity to ask Kamanga any lingering questions they may have had on football affairs in the country and the FAZ President held nothing back. Kamanga said yesterday that his administration had done well in the two years they had been at the helm of the game meeting over fifty percent of their campaign promises so far. He cited the US$4.5 million mega sponsorship deal for the Super League that has given individual clubs a guaranteed entitlement of K200, 000. Kamanga said for the first time the clubs were consulted before the contract was signed to ensure that the members’ wishes were included in the deal. The FAZ boss also tackled the thorny issue of the Chipolopolo coach that he said would be evaluated. “Qualifying for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations is non-negotiable, if it means that we have to make certain decisions we do it. We will have to take action to restore the pride of the Chipolopolo,†he said. Kamanga said that the country had a combination of good players that he expected to lead the country to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and meet a semi-final benchmark. On the court claims that were being lumped on the association in the aftermath of the 2017 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations that Zambia hosted and won, Kamanga said that some of the demands were not validated and wrongly credited to FAZ. Kamanga explained that the tournament was underwritten by government with FAZ not legally being liable for some claims. He said that it would have been more prudent if the claims were made against the tournament which was a separate entity from FAZ. “FAZ had no means to contract on behalf of the tournament. Some of the claims that are being taken to court should have been made against the tournament and not FAZ,†he said. The FAZ President re-affirmed that former vice president Richard Kazala could not be heard at the recently held AGM as he had gone to an ordinary court. Kamanga also said that expelled committee member Blackwell Siwale never appealed the council’s decision to expel him. “Siwale (Blackwell) did not appeal the decision to expel him. He is an expelled member but continued to attack the association and it is the ethics committee that banned him,†he said. Kamanga said that FAZ had come under attack from a clique of individuals that had made it their business to scandalize the association. “It is just a clique of individuals who have made it a preoccupation that they will not see anything good at FAZ. To them anything that is bad about FAZ is blamed on the president,†he said. Kamanga said that his executive will constitute a presidential advisory body that will comprise all former FAZ presidents. He hinted at imminent changes at the secretariat ‘to reboot’ the operations. Source: FAZ MEDIA The post Kamanga Defends K1.4 Million Bonus For Executive Committee appeared first on Zambia Reports.
