CAF fines Nkana $10,000

Sports CAF fines Nkana $10,000


The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has fined Nkana US$10,000 (about K60,000) for failing to provide adequate security for Ethiopian match officials during their Confederations Cup Group B match against Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel.

Impeccable sources at Nkana said in Kitwe yesterday that the continental football governing body has cracked a whip on 12-time Super Division champions for allegedly failing to provide enough security to referee Tessema Bamlak Weyesa.

Minister of Youth and Sport Chishimba Kambwili on July 26 confronted Weyesa after the final whistle of Nkana’s match against Sahel to complain over his poor handling of the return match, which the Kitwe giants won 4-3 in Kitwe.

The 33-year-old Weyesa awarded the North Africans two questionable penalties, one in the fourth minute which Youssef Mouihbi converted to put his side ahead and again stepped up to score the second penalty in stoppage time with the Zambians leading 4-2 at the time.

Nkana secretary Kenny Mwansa said he has not yet received formal communication from CAF on the matter.
“We have not received formal communication from CAF,” said Mwansa, whose team got their four goals through Ronald Kampamba, Simon Bwalya, Festus Mbewe and Christopher Munthali.
Football Association of Zambia communications manager Nkweto Tembwe declined to comment on the matter.
Nkana bowed out of the competition after losing 3-0 to Sewe Sport of Ivory Coast in their last group match in Abidjan.

    • Why fine Nkana and not PF government, when it was very clear that Minister of street youths was one who attacked referee.

    • Kambwili looks like a baby Hippo. I understand were CAF is coming from here, its like a Game Range shooting a hippo that is charging at a defenceless person.

  1. CAF too biased…referee was unprofessional, why not punish that culprit. How many internal teams have we hosted and respected referees’ decisions. This one in question was too biased just as CAF is doing. Thats daylight robbery.
    You have denied us chance to host AFCOM, Now you want money. patritic Zambians lets not support or rather encourage this cheap CAF propaganda.
    All I see is hatred for mother Zambia from these chaps. Awe bane.

  2. We are born again and everyone can agree with. The people who misbehave in many cases are not Nkana fans but other clubs fans. We will assure CAF that we will not allow these people to watch our games and destroy our reputation. See the culprit in the picture.

  3. That obese muppet, Kambwili should use his personal money to pay the fine. His uncalled for behavior probably contributed to us not being chosen as hosts of Afcon 2019.

  4. CAF is right. Nkana should not have allowed any none football player/official like Kambwili to enter/invade the pitch, Hence the offence of insecurity at the stadium. Kambwili’s ministerial job could not be exercised anywhere.

  5. I knew that out come from CAF.
    That fine from CAF it was a MINISTER 4 that matter not us SOCCER FANS or SUPPORTERS of NKANA FOOTBALL CLUB.
    If it was fans or supporters the NATION would have disapointed, coz
    Beating ref or throw stones it was a thing of the PAST @ NKANA STADIUM coz we are MATURE, PEACEFUL & RESPECTED FANS.


    I’m very very DISAPOINTED.
