In typical lumpen and streetwise style, suspended FAZ vice-president Richard Kazala and his sidekick committee member Blackwell Siwale today pitched up for the adjourned executive committee insisting they should take part in the deliberations. Kazala and Siwale are suspended for allegedly stealing FAZ funds. The two received a payment for tickets from government worth K1, 650, 000 but remitted K150, 000 short. FAZ president Andrew Kamanga suspended the duo last week for gross misconduct although Kazala attempted to cause a fracas at the FAZ secretariat. Today, Kazala was back for some more drama and insisted together with Siwale that they should attend the executive committee. When they were advised they remain suspended, they refused to leave Football House forcing the convenor not to start the meeting. Kamanga, according to sources, refused to address the meeting if the two suspended officials insisted on staying there. The adjourned meeting has since failed to take off. Meanwhile, the FAZ legal committee which is chaired by presidential legal advisor Sukwana Lukangaba has concluded that Kamanga acted within constitutional powers to suspend Kazala and Siwale. This followed an inquiry by FAZ deputy general secretary Lombe Mbalashi. Mbalashi had seeming sought legal opinion that would challenge Kamanga’s decision and reinstate the two thieves from Chingola. Although the legal opinion weights Kamanga’s consultation process as provided by the constitution, the committee concludes that Kazala and Siwale remain suspended because the decision was within the confines of constitutional operation.
