Nkana found with case after attacking FAZ


The FAZ disciplinary committee has summoned Nkana to appear before them next week following attacks in the media on Football House.

Nkana slammed FAZ for delaying its ruling over striker Walter Bwalya’s player status following his illegal move from DR Congo club Lubumbashi Sports to Forest Rangers over three seasons ago.

Nkana also alleged that FAZ was stalling the case because some unnamed FAZ officials had an interest in Bwalya and were middlemen in move abroad for the player worth over US$400,000.

“FAZ has summoned Nkana Football Club to a disciplinary hearing scheduled for Wednesday July 26, 2017 at Football House,” FAZ spokesperson Desmond Katongo said.

“Nkana has been summoned in connection with several media attacks on FAZ.”

FAZ suspended Bwalya from all competitive obligations after it was disclosed that he moved to Zambia club Forest Rangers without an International Transfer Certificate.

The striker initially joined Nkana on loan in July,2016 from Forest before making his stay permanent in the 2017 season.

Bwalya,who has four league goals so far this season, won the 2016 Golden Boot after scoring 24 goals.


  1. What a country this is. A foreigner forges documents & claims to be a Zambian, and all this criminality is nothing? All we are hearing is “fines”, ” suspensions”, & now “disciplinary hearing”. People can just walk into a country grab a reg & all is fine. No legal implications? No jail? No mukobeko? Nothing ….
    What country is this????

  2. Does home affairs need to be instructed to arrest someone???? They are siting as though they are Zombies. Here is a case of pure criminality and the issue is flying from left to right even in the media yet we keep on singing songs of “No one is above the law”are sports men above the law in Zambia. Or the home affairs officials will get a cut from the sale of a foreign player??

  3. Foreigner he may be but FAZ must convince me that there’s no other motive to the issue. We who have dealt with FAZ on player affairs know how some officials take advantage on player transfer to foreign clubs.
