Nkana, FAZ in fight over Congolese striker Walter Binene Bwalya

Nkana Football Club has accused some Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) officials of colluding with agents in Congo DR to block the issuance of an International Transfer Certificate (ITC) of suspended striker Walter Binene Bwalya.

Bwalya is suspended from all competitive obligations by FAZ until his illegal transfer from DR Congo to Zambia is corrected by the relevant authorities.

Nkana said in a statement that they have complied with all procedure but were wondering why their was no positive feedback from FAZ.

“Nkana has compiled, submitted required documents and availed the player to FAZ as requested despite not entirely agreeing with the letter from FAZ which you requested the club to stop using the player basing your decision on media reports which should not have been treated as totally correct and formal,” acting Nkana chief executive officer Mutale Kapwepwe said in a letter to FAZ.

“Furthermore, we as a club would like to express our displeasure and disappointment in the strongest terms that we have been receiving disturbing reports from the DRC that some FAZ officials are trying to block the player’s final release of his ITC and are said to be working with some football agents who have been wanting to snatch the player from Nkana in order to sell him abroad at a reported fee to be in excess of US$400,000.”

Kapwepwe added that Nkana have been unfairly treated and have demanded quick resolution to the issue.

Bwalya is believed to have moved from DR Congo Club Lubumbashi Sports to Zambia without an International Transfer Certificate when he joined Forest Rangers couple of years ago.

He moved from Forest to Nkana on loan in July, 2016 before making his a permanent move this season.

Bwalya was the 2016 season leagues topscorer with 24 goals and has this term recorded four goals in the league and one in cup competition.
