Massa’s Star Continues to Nosedive

[Monitor] His receding hairline belied an exuberance that only youth could illuminate. Not that you would catch a proper glimpse of it in the dimly lit Mandela National Stadium. Geoffrey Serunkuma had etched his name on the scoresheet, but, with Burkina Faso having mustered two goals of their own, basking in the afterglow of his success was not an option. It didn't matter that the striker had won a penalty that Simon Masaba (later to age in inverse and take on the name Simeon Massa) converted with aplomb to get the

The coverage of the Football Association of Zambia by the Zambia Daily Mail sports desk is not a secret. The newspaper supports the corrupt. It’s a mouthpiece for people who have stolen money from Zambian football. Everything the newspaper does is to skew opinion in their favour. This is a well known fact and they are proud to be identified as such. It’s not surprising that a newspaper that had thought someone was scoring a hat-trick at Moba Hotel in Kitwe last March when he was actually being defeated would seek anything that is just and fair for Zambian football. To them, Andrew Kamanga has sat on their happiness of enjoying certain privileges like access to third grade Chinese replica t-shirts, among others. The Zambia Daily Maily’s coverage of the scandal at Football House where K150, 000 is missing from ticket revenue is as expected. They are a vehicle being used to portray crooks like FAZ vice-president Richard Kazala and Blackwell Siwale as saints. In their coverage, the Zambia Daily has not given us the public, who are a huge stake in the newspaper, a proper scenario. The institution has neglected its No Fear, No Favour motto by establishing whether indeed these funds are missing or not. They should ask themselves one question; in whose interest, the Zambian public or the two thieves in question, is it to establish the truth? But to make matters worse, the Zambia Daily Management team is fully aware that the reporter they are sending to cover this FAZ story has vested interests. These interests are beyond a notebook and pen kind of relationship with the interviewee. They go beyond through to the pillow in some bedroom. Now if the entire Zambia Daily Mail management can’t see any conflict of interest or unethical relationship in such reporters, we wonder why they even exits to run such an important public institution. There is no need to go into details. The Zambian Daily Mail management team must do the right thing. We hope this is a reminder enough lest the Zambia Daily Mail management wants us to go into details. Our appeal is to give a fair coverage to football and its challenges at Football House. Skewing it in favour of pillow mates is the worst form of professional misconduct. The post Opinion: Zambia Daily Mail Must Uphold Ethics appeared first on Zambia Reports.
