Kalusha Bwalya’s co-opted executive is looking very isolated after the National Sports Council of Zambia (NSCZ) sub-committee led by Max Sichula report was released today.
Sichula’s report to the NSCZ said the co-opted Faz executive committee is illegal and an interim executive looks into the affairs of Football House.
NSCZ spokesman Smart Mwitwa said at a press briefing in Lusaka today that the Sichula inquiry had found that Kalusha’s executive ceased to exist after the resignation of the three committee members including Faz vice president Emmanuel Munaile.
Mwitwa added that Fifa should direct Faz into holding an extraordinary council meeting in line with the football governing bodys’ statues.
Mwitwa said: “The argument that the executive committee has eleven members inclusive of the two ex-officios and that therefore there were seven executive committee members remaining after the resignations of the four does not cure the lack of a quorum.
“From the fore-going the findings of the sub-committee, is that the resignations of the four members of Faz rendered the executive committee dysfunctional. In other words the Faz executive dissolved itself.
“The sub committee recommends as follows: That Fifa prevails upon its affiliate, Faz, to convene an extra ordinary council meeting to enable councilors resolve differences in Faz as per article 26.2 (iv).
“In the alternative, Fifa consider invoking the provisions of article 7 (12) (1) of Fifa statutes which provide for the establishment of a normalization committee for a specific period of time.
“You have to appreciate that the NSCZ has got a vested interest in the administration of football. And we also know the Fifa statutes.
“We do not want to bring any antagonism that is why Fifa is very particular about third party interference and we recognize that, hence the board saw it fit that we leave this matter to FIFA who superintends over Faz.”
