Mpande, Lumwana differ over Edward ChilufyaBy Diggers Reporter on 6 Apr 2017
Mpande Youth Football Academy has written to FAZ General Secretary Ponga Liwewe demanding that Lumwana Radiants pays the Kasama based Division One club for loss of business after Beston Chambeshi’s club stopped Edward Chilufya from traveling to Europe.
And FAZ president Andrew Kamanga has summoned Chilufya, Lumwana FC and Mpande Academy for a meeting.
Chambeshi, the Under-20 coach, was implicated in a player transfer scandal after his club Lumwana Radians snitched striker Edward Chilufya upon arrival from South Korea, preventing the goal scorer from traveling to Sweden where he has been offered a 400,000 euro deal.
Chilufya is currently registered under Mpande Youth Soccer Academy and is on the wanted list of Swedish Top Club FC Djurgardens IF, La Liga outfits Celta Vigo as well as Moïse Katumbi’s TP Mazembe of Congo DR.
According to a letter sated April 4, 2017 and signed by Mpande Youth Academy club chairman Teddy Mizinga, the club wants Lumwana to appear before the FAZ disciplinary Committee to explain their dealings with the player.
“We write to inform you that the above mentioned player- Mr Edward Chilufya is a member of Mpande Youth Academy Football Club. Mr Chilufya was scheduled to fly to Sweden today, 4th April 2017 at 21:25 hours to undergo medicals at Jugardens Football with the intention of signing a contract but to our surprise, Lumwana Radiant using underhand methods got the said player without the knowledge of Mpande Youth Academy Football Club management and have refused and delayed the player to go for medicals,” Mizinga stated.
“The following are our reactions to the illegal acquisition of Edward Chilufya. (a) Mpande youth Academy fc demands that Lumwana Radiant releases the player in order for him to attend medicals immediately. (b) Failure to do so, Lumwana will have to pay Mpande Youth Academy the loss of business which could have accrued from the arrangement between Mpande and Jugardens. (c) Lumwana Radiants should pay for any expenses incurred as a result of cancellation and rebooking of flights. (d) Lumwana Radiants should be brought before the player’s status and transfer committee to answer charges.”
Meanwhile, sources at FAZ have disclosed that Kamanga wants all the parties involved to appear at Football House for questioning.
“The boy is expected in Lusaka today, Lumwana and Mpande have also been summoned for a meeting and the President wants an explanation on this matter,” said the source.
