Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) President Andrew Kamanga has dispelled reports alleging that he has been funding confusions at the demoted City of Lusaka Football Club.

Kamanga regretted that his noble help to the club that has in the recent past produced legends has been perceived as sponsoring confusion by the Simata Simata led group who have taken over the management of the club.

Kamanga noted that like many other Zambians who have been ardent follower and supporters of the Zambian game for many years, he took it upon himself to contribute to the growth of the game by providing some financial support towards the club.

He stated that his contribution to the club’s financial growth dates as far back as 1995 saying that he felt a great responsibility as a Zambian to offer support to a club that has continued to be a source of livelihood for many young people wishing to make a living through football.

“It is indeed a fact that the Justin Zulu led group were courteous enough and reminded me that I needed to meet my sponsorship commitment and I agreed that I will, like in the pasty help the club. It is however, saddening that the Simata Simata led group jumped on it and accused me of funding City of Lusaka. When I challenged them to produce evidence, they produced a social media posting,” Kamanga explained.

Kamanga wondered whether supporting a club financially is a break of the FAZ statute because he has been supporting some clubs that include Mufulira Wanderers.

He said he has no problem assisting the club financially but stated that he will only provide any financial contribution to city of Lusaka for this year once the perceived wrangles between the parties involved are resolved.

He stressed that it was disappointing that at a point when people should be channeling energies towards the development of football in the country, some people have resorted to innuendos without basis.

The FAZ boss has since advised that people should use the right channel of communication whenever they are aggrieved.

And he has clarified that his contribution towards the development of Zambian football started way before he was elected FAZ President and will continue even after he leaves office.

This is contained in a statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka today by FAZ President Andrew Kamanga.

  1. So the love affair between you and Simataa has now come to an end? Simataa campaigned for you rigorously and you wanted to reward him with the SG position. You didn’t take kindly to those that opposed your nomination of Simataa, especially Richard Kazala. You were told that Simataa sees most things differently. He likes brewing up trouble. Today Kazala stands accused. Welcome to football politics Bwana Andrew Ndanga Kamanga

    • True, some pipo were just born to be trouble makers. Kamanga just ignore them and continue doing your job. Atleast you have brought accountability and professionalism in FAZ which we never saw in the previous administration.

  4. I think Simaata is a problem and he doesn’t even know what he wants. He has been at odds with almost all administrators yet when he was given an opportunity to run FAZ he resigned

  5. Only on Zambia, someone invests millions to turn the stadium into an FIFA standard stadium with seats…only for green eyed individials to mess it up instead of reaching middle ground; now they are back to sitting on concrete like the 70s.

  6. ONLY A TONGA MUST LEAD UPND says Sejani. Kamanga you were cring for a wrong job. Apart from under 20 national team winning the AFCON you have nothing to show us since you were ushered into that office. The rest of the national teams have not been performing to our expectations worse still you don’t seem to do anything to recover the dwindling football fortunes especially at international level. In as much as Kalusha had his own weaknesses at least he won some competitive trophies the 2012 AFCON in particular. Great Kalu is and can still make a better football administrator than yourself. My advice is don’t bring confusion in football by sponsoring anarchy in some clubs as reported in some sections of the media.

    • Of what benefit is it to you…when you wont know their names as you are too young. Some of the legends in world football never played for their national teams. Have respect for YaMoto that was self funded and not spoonfed by our mines!!

  10. I just wonder when Simaata will stop it. The guy has got education, had an executive job (don’t know what he’s doing ). But he’s been all over quarreling with everyone, disrupting FAZ council meeting, influencing the firing of Poulsen in favor of Porterfield in 1994. The list is as long as Ndola Kitwe dual carriage. Fell out with Lusaka Dynamos recently. All of us are no longer there but him..
    mmmm?
