Long time sports administrator Mwamba Kalenga has been dropped as National Sports Council of Zambia chairperson. Sport Moses Mawere announced Kalenga’s dropping yesterday saying the entire board has been dissolved. Mawere says the dissolution is in accordance with the Laws of Zambia that state board members will be in office for a tenure of three years. Kalenga’s board was constituted over three years ago by Chishimba Kambwili. Kalenga was recently linked to underhand attempts supporting the impeachment of FAZ president Andrew Kamanga. The official had recently forced FAZ to abrogate its disciplinary procedure and constitution to protect suspended vice-president Richard Kazala and committee member Blackwell Siwale. Kazala and Siwale swindeled FAZ out of K150, 000 which was part of the proceeds from ticket sales for the match involving Zambia and Nigeria last year.

In a David versus Goliath style contest, Madagascan national Ahmad Ahmad has ended Issa Hayatou’s 29 year reign at the helm of the Confederation of African Football (CAF). Ahmad deemed the underdog in this contest defied all odds to trounce Hayatou who has been president since 1988. The Madagascan polled 34 votes against Hayatou’s 20 marking a growing trend of change in global game. Zambia witnessed a mini tsunami of its own last year when then President Kalusha Bwalya was also swept aside by Andrew Kamanga who was deemed as an underdog. On the global front Sepp Blatter’s reign ended in disgrace with Gianni Infantino taking over. Hayatou’s last international trip on duty was in Zambia where he witnessed the hosting of the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations. The result means a change in leadership for the first time since Cameroonian Hayatou took charge in 1988. Ahmad becomes only the seventh Caf president in the body’s 60-year history.
