Former Zambia Amateur Athletics Association national coach Jonathan Chipalo has sued the association general secretary Davison Mung’ambata for non-payment of $32,321 overseas allowances.
In a statement of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court, Chipalo is demanding lunch allowance at the rate of K85 per day from the period of his secondment to ZAAA.
Chipalo says despite Mung’ambata promising to pay him the outstanding overseas allowances from June 1998 to February 2001, he had failed to do so.
He stated that even after Minister of Youth and Sports Moses Mawere directed to ZAAA resolve the issue out of court, the association had neglected to do so despite acknowledging that they owe him.
Chipalo claimed he accumulated travel allowances from trips to France, Senegal, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Japan and China among others.
He is also claiming for local transport and civil allowance as well as damages.
