Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) technical director Honour Janza has relinquished his post to become Red Arrows as head coach.
In a statement issued today January 11, 2017, FAZ deputy general secretary Lombe Mbalashi stated that Red Arrows had requested Janza’s services.
“Red Arrows have requested the services of the current FAZ Technical Director Mr. Honour Janza to become their Head Coach. This means that the key position will be vacant when Janza leaves,” said Mbalashi.
He stated that FAZ had since made a request to replace Janza and that FIFA would look into the request.
And Mbalashi stated that FAZ President Andrew Kamanga met with FIFA President Gianni Infantino at FIFA Headquarters on Tuesday to discuss various soccer developmental matters.
He added that the FIFA boss instructed FAZ to amend its Constitution by March 30th, 2017. Mbalashi stated that FIFA would send a delegation to the FAZ Ordinary Council meeting to help with the amendments which will include the reduction of the Electoral College from 35 to 80.
Mbalashi noted that the reduction of the Electoral College would not disadvantage FAZ affiliates in any way.
“The said reduction of the FAZ Electoral College as confirmed by both FAZ and FIFA will in no way disadvantage any FAZ members as they will be catered for under the decentralized FAZ structures,” stated Mbalashi.
