Nchanga Rangers demoted after bribery case

Sports Nchanga Rangers demoted after bribery case

Nchanga Rangers FCThe FAZ Disciplinary Committee has ruled that Super Division side Nchanga Rangers be demoted to Division One after being found guilty of attempting to bribe a referee recently.

The committee said Nchanga officials recently attempted to bribe a referee prior to game against Nkwazi almost a fortnight ago.

“A referee reported an offer, promise and grant of cash to unjustifiably advantage Nchanga Rangers in a game against Nkwazi Football Club inviting him to violate FAZ Rules and Regulations,” the committee stated.

“The whole conversation was recorded and played in the meeting. The meeting was further informed that six persons were summoned to appear before the disciplinary Committee without fail.”

The Committee decided that Nchanga Rangers be demoted to Division One taking effect in the 2017 Season.

Furthermore, the committee ruled that the four officials mentioned by name in the recording namely Elijah Mugala, Matyola Haanyama, Patrick Nkhata (team manager) and Shadrick Chalenga be banned for life.

“The life ban include a ban in performing any football activities and entering any stadium,” the Disciplinary Committee said.

This is a unique case on the local football front.


  1. Comment: So it means there are a lot of wrong going on in football. Fish starts being rotten from the head, the FA should also be disbanded it is time to start anew.

  2. Now let the same disciplinary committee decide the fate of play boy Kazala and Siwale they pocketed money from ticket sales….

  3. This issue is personal.Andrew Kamanga Faz president has done this as a way of punishing kazala and siwale who are both connected to Nchanga Rangers FC!!!yes it maybe true that Nchanga officials tried to bribe a referee.since it didnt happen and Nchanga lost the game to Nkwazi,THIS PUNISHMENT IS TOO MUCH!!

  4. Nchanga Rangers are masters of soccer bribery. One time they faced relegation, they convinced ZR to disband Railways Express. In fact there so many times they have broken the law. I am surprised Jim Chongo is not involved

  5. Comment:I find it quite strange to have a Referee record a conversation as evidence. He was an interested party but things didnot just work out for him as Nkwazi won the game. I strongly suggest to subject all involed to ACC for thorough investigations rather than impose a demotion on Peoples Team. Its very unfair to punish everybody for a mistake of one or two people . FAZ remember that your Judgement only reflect what type of people you all are, you know what I mean and one day it will definately dawn on you too

  6. This happens in KCM… starting with BS ISO Certifications all the way through. They were sent.

    Demote them and ban the other guys! Good move FAZ! Nothing personal here!
