Popular former FAZ committee member Pivoty Simwanza, business executive Mofya Chisala and former Power Dynamos chairman Chalimba Phiri are among hot favourites to replace suspended FAZ vice-president Richard Kazala at the 2017 annual general meeting. FAZ councillors who have been supporting Kazala are beginning to resign to the fact that the Chingola businessman grossly misconducted himself by transacting on behalf of FAZ when he was not authorized, leading to the association losing close to K2 million in revenue. Kazala, alongside his sidekick, is also accused of pocketting K150, 000 which funds came into their possession after collecting K1, 650, 000 million from government but only remitted K1, 500, 000 to FAZ. FAZ president Andrew Kamanga swiftly moved in to act against the duo’s misconduct and has since substantiated his decision in a well argued report that was circulated to all FAZ affiliates recently. Kazala’s supporters who have read the document agree there is something fishy the former sports deputy minister and his accomplice did in the transaction that has defrauded FAZ out of income. “The boss [Kazala] is failing to defend himself. And you can see that people are not happy with what he did because Kamanga has explained the situation very well,” the source confided in Zambia Reports. “Some people are saying he is gone, but he will not go down fighting. He is ready to spend millions to save his name and mwalishiba takwata akaso ulya umuntu [he is not stingy that person].” Some of Kazala’s sympathisers say no matter his budget, he has a weak case convincing councillors he didn’t misconduct himself. As a results, Ndola-businessman Pivoty’s name is coming up prominently to replace in the hope of charting a new course in football. The source says councillors are also throwing in either ZICTA director Mofya Chisala or Kalulushi Modern Stars chairman Chalimba Phiri as possible replacements. “So far, people are circulating names to replace Kazala. Pivoty is topping the list because most councillors still like him. Mofya is another one that has been liked because of the way he campaigned last time. “There is also the guy from Kalulushi [Chalimba]. His record at Power is attracting some attention,” the source said. There are still question marks regarding Simwanza because he is believed to be involved in inside dealing with FAZ which does not make him any different from Kazala. “If the decision to repalce Kazala goes to an election, Pivoty can take it. He only has to be cleared for those royalty issues,” the source said. “There is a possibility that the executive can co-opt ExCo members which will change the whole scenario.” Zambian football has plunged into total chaos with the suspended Kazala attempting a failed mutiny. Kazala landed himself in hot waters when it was discovered he had stolen funds belonging to FAZ. FAZ president Kamanga has put his foot on the ground demanding transparency and accountability by all officials, a development that has made him unpopular among executive committee members who prefer the streetwise operation of abusing public funds that is aligned to the Kazala mondus operandi. The FAZ AGM will be held in March next year to determine Kazala and Siwale’s fate. The post Pivo, Mofya & Chalimba Top Favourites To Replace Kazala appeared first on Zambia Reports.
