SPORTS minister Moses Mawere says Kalusha Bwalya has betrayed Zambians by favouring foreign players ahead of national team captain Rainford Kalaba. Bwalya placed Ugandan goalkeeper Dennis Onyango and Zimbabwe’s Kharma Billiat whom he gave the majority of his votes as CAF executive committee member ahead of Kalaba during the vote for the CAF African-based player award held in Abuja, Nigeria last week. Onyango subsequently won the award, ahead of Billiat and Kalaba. In an interview, Mawere said Bwalya’s decision lacked morality especially that the nation had always supported him in his football career. “It’s just the morality behind it. As minister I think what he did is betrayal to the entire country. If Morocco, Congo and others voted for Kalaba it means they know he is the best, but what does his own do? I think we have to be patriotic to our country,†Mawere said. “I have seen and head a few people trying to justify that decision, that ‘no he was professional, he has a right’…but there is no justification for that. Everyone who was there voted for their own, it shows that he has no regard for other Zambians. I would only urge Kalaba to soldier on, forgive and not trust some people because this is a clear case of betrayal.†He said he had received numerous calls from across the country complaining about Kalusha’s voting. “Let Mr Kalusha find it in his heart to apologise to the Zambian people because Kalaba’s award was meant for Zambia. We have always stood for him when he wants to succeed and everyone expected him to do that for Kalaba and we are pushing for him to go to FIFA but now he has put us in an awkward position,” said Mawere. “But I will still advocate that we support him for that position because we have to stand together as Kamanga goes to cast that vote in March at the congress. But I am not happy with what he did because we have to stand together in those times.†Source: The Mast The post Kalu Has Betrayed Zambia; There’s No Justification For Kalaba Snub, Decries Minister Mawere appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Zanaco Football Club will even have more doubters of their CAF Champions League ambitions given the mass exodus of high profile players barely a month before they begin their continental race. Sunset Stadium has seen players trooping out with the 2016 MTN/FAZ league champions posturing that it is business as usual. Not even the prospects of Champions League football is enough to persuade some players to stick around. Out the door has gone Roderick Kabwe (Ajax Cape Town), Salulani Phiri (Polokwane City), Fackson Kapumbu, Dave Daka (Zesco United), Aaron Katebe (Nkana), Charles Zulu (Switzerland) and Mwelwa Sakala (Power Dynamos). Striker Aubrey Funga is also reportedly in South Africa trying to hammer out a deal with Ajax Cape Town. Zanaco has been unconvincing in the CAF campaigns and will have to do more to win over public confidence in their ability to run a credible continental race where Zesco United did the country proud by reaching the semi finals of the Champions League. Numba Mumamba’s side face APR of Rwanda on February 11 in the preliminary round. Zanaco last played continental football in the 2013 season after having won the 2012 league under late Keagan Mumba. Their campaign was to end at the second hurdle after having overcome Mbabane Swallows but were given the boot by Orlando Pirates who beat them home and away.
