FAZ president Andrew Kamanga has appointed fraudster Erick Mwanza as a member of the Publicity Committee for the Under 20 Africa Cup of Nations to be hosted next month. Kamanga’s secret appointment of Mwanza has been revealed to Zambia Reports in a list of committee members behind the disastrous, so far, organization of the Under-20 tournament set for February 26 to March 10. Lawyer Lombe Mbalashi, who has no idea about publicity, is the stooge heading the publicity committee that Mwanza is controlling. The appointment of Mwanza is against Kamanga’s pledge to transform FAZ into a transparent and accountable body. The list also reveals that some FAZ executive committee members have been given double roles in the organization of the event. Committee member Lee Kawanu, deputy secretary general Lombe Mbalashi and another committee member Dr Joseph Mulenga are heading two committees each. Kawanu is heading both the Infrastructure and Venue Management Committee as well as the Transport Committee while Dr Joseph Mulenga is heading both the Accreditation and Medical Committees with Mbalashi responsible for marketining and sponsorship as well as publicity.
