Attempts to file in a no confidence vote motion as a members’ item through Faz today to be put on the agenda at the March 26 FAZ annual general meeting in Kitwe failed.
The Andrew Kamanga-led group general secretary Simataa Simataa said at a press briefing at Chita Lodge in Lusaka on Monday afternoon that Pemba United, Mazabuka United and Amakumbi ‘s motions were ignored at Football House.
“Today we attempted to deliver on behalf of three clubs members’ items. What transpired at Football House in the last hour is most unfortunate,” Simataa said.
“The first person was refused service on account he did not had no an identity card. The second person who had an identification card was told these letters are addressed to the (Faz) general secretary and only the general secretary can receive them.”
Simataa said he later made the third attempt to file in the motions through the Faz register but was also told only the Faz general secretary George Kasengele can receive them.
However, Simataa also drew a blank when he later went to Kasengele’s office at Football House.
“it is most unfortunate that the motions could not be received today but attempts will be made tomorrow, the day after and the day after until they are received by Faz,” Simataa said.
He said Faz decision to snub the motions was not only disrespectful to all councilors and general public but also to Fifa and government who agreed on this at the tripartite meeting held in Zurich on December 20.
Simataa said they will also send copies of the members’ item to government, Fifa and Caf during the next 24 hours.
