Sports Council Advise Faz Against Intimidation Tactics
The National Sports Council of Zambia (NSCZ) has told Faz not to take a offensive stance against its affiliates in the lead-up to the March, 2011 annual general meeting.
NSCZ spokesman Smart Mwitwa told a media briefing in Lusaka today that Faz should not intimidate its affiliates as the day draws closer for the associations AGM.
“The sports council would like to advise FAZ not to take any steps that will be interpreted as intimidation or that will disadvantage any member of the football family on the run up to the forth coming annual general meeting,” Mwitwa said in a statement read at the media briefing.
Faz recently suspended Simataa Simataa who is the general secretary of the Andrew Kamanga Faz faction.
And Mwitwa said Faz should also publicize in advance the list of delegates who will be eligible to attend the AGM in March and that the NSCZ will continue to monitor closely events in the build-up to the Faz congress.
The NCSZ has been a key player in the Faz impasse and was represented at the Zurich tripartite meeting with Fifa by its head Chifumu Banda that was also attended by Kalusha Bwalya and Andrew Kamanga factions and minister of sport Kenneth Chipungu.
