Mazabuka municipal council has dropped Mazabuka united football club chairman Evans Mushiba after he and his secretary Moses Njobvu withdrew the vote of no confidence with out the consent of the committee.
Speaking in an interview with ZANIS sports, yesterday, Mazabuka Town Clerk Ekan Chingangu said that the council was concerned at the way the vote of no confidence was withdrawn.
Mazabuka United were the movers of the vote of no confidence against the Kalusha Bwalya led FAZ, which they withdrew hours before the annual general meeting held in Kabwe
Mr. Chingangu said that the council being the sponsor of the club and having appointed Mushiba to chair the club had the power to drop him.
He said that the council appointed the executive positions of the club and that other positions were open for elections.
He said that Mr. Mushiba and his secretary made the decision to with draw the vote of no confidence without consultation from the council and the rest of the Mazabuka football club committee.
Mr. Chingangu said the decision made by the two was contrary to that of members of the club committee and that of the council.
He said that he felt that the chair did not exercise his duties responsibly and that his conduct was unexpected, as the decision should have been made collectively and agreed on as a club.
He said that as the sponsor of Mazabuka united football club the council would not allow for confusion in the interest of football in the district.
The town clerk said Mr. Isaac Mwale has been appointed Mazabuka united chair with immediate effect as the investigations of the no confidence vote motion withdrawal goes on.
