City of Lusaka have mounted pressure on FAZ to refund them for the expenses incurred for the unplayed fixture aagainst Zanaco last week. City claim the notice was insufficient and fell outside regulatory requirements to cancel a league match. BELOW IS A LATER BY CITY OF LUSAKA TO FAZ October 4, 2017 Mr. Ponga Liwewe Hon. General Secretary Football Association of Zambia Football House Alick Nkhata Road Lusaka, ZAMBIA. Dear Mr. Liwewe RE: POSTPONMENT OF CITY OF LUSAKA FC AND ZANACO FC MATCH ON 1ST OCTOBER 2017 We are in receipt of your letter dated 3rd of October 2017 as regards the above captioned subject matter and wish to respond as follows: 1. The main objective of the Football Association of Zambia is to promote and protect the welfare and interests of its affiliates including that of the City of Lusaka FC and in so doing ensure fair play leading to the sustainable development of football in Zambia. 2. In this issue our interest has not been protected as in all fairness ZANACO FC were ready to play as quoted in the public media space. We are therefore wondering what the motivation was on the part of FAZ to postpone the said match. 3. The decision taken to postpone the said match required FAZ to dialogue with all parties concerned and was not communicated officially to the Office of the General Secretary of City of Lusaka FC and indeed was short of the 48 hours notification rule so as to ensure transparency and accountability of the action taken. 4. As per communication protocol and practice it is expected that the Office of the General Secretary of FAZ takes the responsibility to officially inform all affiliates on any major decision taken. Mr. Benjamin Bush as Acting Team Manager and Vice President Kapalamula Njovu never received the said communication by email nor by phone. Due to the gravity of the issue such kind of communication requires to assume an official, authoritative and authentic communication mode or platform. 5. We have incurred costs in the postponement of the said match let alone the frustration and anger of our supporters and fans who had already positioned themselves for the said match. (See attached camping costs). We are therefore demanding for a refund for the costs incurred. 6. Finally, we are hopeful that you will share with us the compounding and militating reasons surrounding the decision to postpone the said match. Yours Sincerely For and on behalf of the: CITY OF LUSAKA FC (S) signed Christopher Chilongo FZIM General Secretary The post City “Yamoto” Demand Refund, 3 Points For Unplayed Match; Tell FAZ Notice Was Insufficient appeared first on Zambia Reports.

[Daily Maverick] As political elites, we are more interested in our own political survival, hence the politically motivated killings are of more importance to us than the senseless shootings and murders of drug wars and gang-related territorial fights. We are losing young men and children daily in Cape Town and it seems our government and more precisely the police service remain incapable of providing law and order to our communities. We are dying, Minister Mbalula!

Patriotic Front media committee member Brian Hapunda says expelled Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili deserved some physical counselling as meted out by Copperbelt minister Bowman Lusambo because he was provocative. Hapunda, a former UPND operative, says Kambwili had been an onslaught against the PF leadership from the day he was fired as Cabinet minister. The young politician who has previously burnt his fingers in PF political issues says Kambwili has been abusing parliamentary privileges and could not escape the wrath of his victims. Kambwili, one of the PF founders, has recently been a pain in the PF flesh calling on its leadership to denounce corruption. KAMBWILI MUST AVOID BEING PROVOCATIVE! What transpired today at Parliament building where two Honourable Members of Parliament verbally & physically attacked each other is most unfortunate! It is alleged that during Tea Break at Parliament, Hon Kambwili was heard pouring scon at Copperbelt Minister Bowman Lusambo. Kambwili took turns in insulting Hon Bowman Lusambo a situation that insensed the Minister to pounce on Hon Kambwili slapping him twice with Hon Jean Kapata empting her bottle of Water on Kambwili. Kambwili earlier insulted & called PF Ministers a bunch of Thieves! Had Kambwili been carrying out himself well lately devoid of his provocative & abusive language towards Members of the ruling PF & Government Leaders, this most unfortunate incident at Parliament today where he was beaten by Hon Lusambo would have been avoided. Kambwili’s act can best be discribed as provocative & an abuse of his Parliamentary privilege. He has been on rampage maligning Ministers, the Republican President & some PF Members by labelling them Corrupt. I wish to advice Kambwili to stop bring Provocative & petty towards some Ministers, the Republican President & some PF Members. If Kambwili has any evidence at all of corruption, he must simply walk to Anti Corruption Commission ACC and Report those People rather than him continuing to verbally insulting & defaming them. Kambwili’s conduct of late is immaturish & provocative! Therefore, when he is hit at by the People he has taken pleasure in Defaming maliciously on his “petty Corruption crusade”, he must not cry foul but blame himself instead! Zambians are tired of petty provocative politics being exhibited by Kambwili in an attempt to win public Sympathy as a self proclaimed Anti – Corruption whistle blower when he himself has been mentioned in some heinous Corruption scandal involving a Chinese Firm he swindled thousands of US$s yet he claims to be as clean and whiter as Doctor Kenneth Kaunda’ Handkerchief. Let him Kambwili deny the allegation that he solicited and received a handsome bribe from a named Chinese Firm over Construction of the Mongu Stadium. Zambians must see through Kambwili that he is trying to cover up for his own Corruption Skeltons by maliciously labelling his colleagues corrupt when in actual fact it’s he who is being investigated by the ACC on corruption allegations. Zambians will not be swayed by his cheap provocative & malicious campaign to paint black the PF Government of President Edgar Chagwa, every Minister who challenges his incorrigible behaviour & some PF members who know a “little something” about his clandestine business deals. Zambians are now interested in Issue – based Politics rather than Petty malicious & unproductive Politics of name calling. Kambwili must be advised to respect himself as an elderly man if at all young people such as Kampyongo & Lusambo whom he is defaming day in day out are to have respect for him.
