Outgoing FAZ-treasurer Kelvin Mutafu’s allegations made last week should not be taken lightly.

His allegations of embezzlement of FAZ funds and proceeds from counterfeited Zambia replica Nike jerseys are very damning and have seemingly not been taken seriously.

It is very rare, in Zambia for that matter, to hear a public officer turn whistle-blower.

The whistle-blower is not even a well-known rebel but a longtime and staunch Kalusha Bwalya loyalists.

For those that do not remember Mutafu, he is one of the three co-opted FAZ committee members in 2010 at the height of the Bwalya and Andrew Kamanga factional standoff.

This is a man who was the executive committees eyes on the balance sheet and had first hand knowledge of the money trail.

For years, no one could make a case stick on FAZ’s alleged financial mismanagement despite long-standing speculation.

Today an insider at the very heart of Kalusha Bwalya’s ‘Politburo’ drops the bomb and it is handled with a slap on the wrist.

FIFA has led the way in its reforms which is the subject of a running story with the international media.

And now it is time for FAZ to stop hiding behind the chicanery of beautifully crafted reaction statements over the matter enter the dock and prove their innocence and also show us all a pious ledger.

  1. Well written but the problem which is there is that we have a toothless ‘BULL DOG’ in the name of ACC who for any reason can not do anything and are as corrupt as FAZ officials themselves. This case will not go anywhere, this is the time one remembers Mwanawasa who never wanted any nonsense to do with corruption. Kalu’s livelihood entirely depend on bribes.

  4. The problem is government. Successive governments have bailed out FAZ at the expense of other sports in this country. Government should be firm and let FAZ be self -funding, otherwise let them withdraw from competitions.

  5. Nothing will be done, there is no accountability with PF run government. Anyone can steal at will, just make sure you share with those above you. PF They are all theives, so any can do it.

  7. This should serve as a message to would be swindlers, right now the current GRZ does not pursue cases of corruption and misuse involving public funds and assets, now is the time to steal and abuse office if you have a chance. As long as you are a vocal PF suppoter and share the loot with your peers so there is no one to pursue you as any whistle blower will be told to bring evidence. The next GRZ might not be so linient on corruption. Also bear in mind you might be pursued in the future

  10. Workers at public bodies, you can see that there is no accountability anymore, as long as you are a vocal PF, you can steal but share with a cartel. If a whistle blower appears, rest assured, he will be told to provide hard evidence not pointing fingers. Now is your chance.

  13. @ Fred, your comments do not answer the accusations. Insults do not solve any problem. Respond to the challenges otherwise keep away from the topic. Your hate for Simata will not clear Kalusha’s name.
