The FAZ Appeals Committee has reversed the demotion of Super Division side Nchanga Rangers to Division One on allegations of attempting to bribe a referee.

FAZ General Secretary Ponga Liwewe confirmed on Thursday that Nchanga have won their appeal against the Disciplinary Committee decision to demote the club.

The Disciplinary Committee ruled on 5 November that Nchanga be relegated from the top flight after four club officials were found guilty of attempting to corrupt a match official before a match against Nkwazi played on 29th October, 2016 in Chingola.

“The Appeals Committee, having examined the referee’s report of that match, found that the referee did not include the alleged bribery incidences,” Liwewe stated.

“The Committee, therefore, quashed all sanctions and fines imposed on Nchanga Rangers FC and its officials,” he said.

The Appeals Committee further reversed the slapping of life bans on Nchanga officials – Elijah Mugala, Matyola Haanyama, Patrick Nkhata and Shadrick Chalenga.

Nchanga must now fight relegation on the pitch.

The Chingola Club is placed 11th on the table with 39 points from 33 matches played.

Coach Bruce Mwape’s side must now win their last match to be sure of surviving relegation.

  1. We are board rooms decision specialists bwana. Andrew is out not only to fix the Kalu camp but also their respective clubs. He would rather see his friends anif dynamos survive than kazala rangers. We are not brave for nothing. Nankwe nankwe mpaka board room.

  2. Mr Kamanga you talked well during the campaigns but your performance so far leaves much to be desired. We need results bwana not trying to fix people all the time. We have CAF under 20 or 17 or something like being held in Zambia please the get the awareness going among so soccer fans and the corporate world to make the event a memorable one.

    Always talking about corporate governance and nothing about results. Let Zambia continue losing and you will see the kind of soccer fans we have in Zambia-the will hail unprintable at you
