Immediate past FAZ vice president Boniface Mwamelo has supported the appointment of Ponga Liwewe as FAZ General Secretary.

FAZ on Thursday appointed Liwewe as its General Secretary and Lombe Mbalashi as his deputy during a lengthy executive committee meeting in Lusaka.

The position of General Secretary fell vacant after the resignation of George Mwila Kasengele hours after the FAZ elections held two months ago.

“The appointment of the new FAZ General Secretary is a welcome move considering that the position has been vacant for two months,” Mwamelo said on Friday.

“I do believe that the new General Secretary is equal to the task and he should be able to deliver to the expectations of Zambians,” he said.

Ex-FAZ executive committee member Henchel Chitembeya also welcomed the appointment of Liwewe.

“I am pleased with this appointment of Ponga Liwewe as FAZ General Secretary. This is a step in the right direction,” Chitembeya said.

  1. Congratulations, Ponga. You are a natural for this position. Soccer flows in your blood, and you are a consummate administrator.


  2. To answer Mushota, Ponga is the son of late football analyst Dennis Liwewe. If you stayed in Zambia in your life and if you are old enough you will have known who Dennis Liwewe was. But not to take anything from Ponga, he has also been in football circles for sometime. He has been a football analyst on Supersport, a TV channel for Multi Choice. It can be said that Ponga has lived football in his home and outside his home. He is a good choice for FAZ General Secretary. I dont believe he is a parasite. He has a degree in Business Administartion from Copperbelt University and he worked for South African breweries. Are those characteristics of a parasite?
