FAZ presidential aspiring candidate Henschel Chitembeya is promising to speedily raise football standards in the country if elected at the 19th March elective annual general meeting in Kitwe.
Chitembeya and Andrew Kamanga are challenging incumbent president Kalusha Bwalya.
In an interview in Ndola, Chitembeya said he was the best presidential candidate.
“Of the three candidates I am the only one who is got the proper manifesto for immediate jacking up of fallen football standard,” he said.
“When you ask my two colleagues (rivals) what they are going to do immediately to make sure that the standards of football are jump started.They have no clue but have ideas of raising football standards,” Chitembeya charged.
“In all the provinces we are going to introduce technical committees that will select under-17,20, 23 and the senior team at provincial level.
Chitembeya added:”We are also going to introduce the reserves league for all clubs to increase the pool of players.
He further promised to facilitate the financial empowerment of clubs.
“We will ensure that clubs fully benefit from deals like SuperSport contract unlike the current situation where money is going into people’s pockets. We want to help clubs become self reliant.”
Chitembeya is a former FAZ committee member who alongside three others resigned their positions from Football House in 2010, citing bad governance practices.
