FAZ President Andrew Kamanga says the presence of his predecessor Kalusha Bwalya at the ongoing Under – 20 Africa Cup of Nations Tournament has continued to destabilise operations of his executive.
In a letter to the President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Kamanga complained that Bwalya and his supporters had been calling for his impeachment without any cause.
“You will recall President that I had raised an objection to the presence of Mr Kalusha Bwalya in your delegation to Zambia for the ongoing U-20 Africa Cup Tournament. President, despite your assurance that Mr Bwalya had been guided not to interfere in the tournament, I regret to advise that his presence continues to destabilise the running of football in Zambia. His known supporters have now taken it upon themselves to embarrass my executive by calling for my impeachment with no grounds for the same,” Kamanga stated.
He recounted that he and the former FAZ president had never been the best of friends.
“It is a known fact President that Mr Bwalya and I have always had a frosty relationship which is detrimental to the running of football in Zambia. At the very least Mr Bwalya should encourage his supporters that I am in charge of football in Zambia and have a four year mandate which expires in 2020,” stated Kamanga.
