“Attacks on FAZ, the Presidency and Executive Committees as well as the Secretariat have the potential of scaring away partners, sponsors and other prospective stakeholders,” he stated.

He stated that Known elements, some of who have had their time at running the game for many years, have been identified as setting themselves to intensify their attacks against FAZ with a view to destabilizing the smooth running of the Association.

“We would like to strongly caution all those who have set themselves on a mission to damage football by spreading falsehoods. What they call damaging leakages and sustained attacks on FAZ are matters that have dire consequences because all they do it to leave us exposed to the rest of the world thereby, weakening our brand and commercial value. Such acts are wrong, unethical, unprofessional and unwarranted because all they do is erode the institutions standing in public,” cautioned Kashala.

  1. ALL FOOTBALL CLUBS THAT OWE WHO FAZ MUST PAY BACK THE DEBT. THIS IS NOT ANDREW KAMANGA’S MONEY AS FAZ IS NOT ANDREW KAMANGA AND SIMILARLY ANDREW KAMANGA NOT FAZ. THIS IS FAZ MONEY WHICH ALL DEBTORS MUST PAY BACK. THE GUY IS TRYING TO COVER UP WHAT THEY HAVE STOLEN.

  2. The irresponsible opposition parties have really damaged the thinking capacities of most Zambians. Whst evever a leader leading foes is termed as corruption. Witch hunting is the order of the day today in Zambia, but why?And most of these allegation peddlars are former faz leaders!What did they do to up the administration and management of football in Zambia. The standards nose dived when the corrupt leader took over after unceremoniously ousted Mr.Teddy Mulonga.Surely how could reasonable leaders approve one person combining two positions, one as technical director and as vice president of faz.The elements from the former not to developing football in Zambia. Viva Kananga and his executive members. Don’t allow the situation go back to kalusha era

    • You, don’t you see anything wrong with kamanga lending FAZ his personal money from his company which he seems to be running much better in parallel to FAZ ??

      FAZ is supposed to be self sufficient by now with kamanga claiming by now FAZ would be contributing to the GDP but what we are hearing is bailiffs and kamangas company borrowing money to FAZ for operations…..

  3. What is the ACC doing? Simataa a smart sports guy has given the corrupt ACC something to do, but believe me, the ACC will be ordered by Lungu and RB to investigate Simataa. Open your eyes. This is coming and you will soon see Simataa being dragged to Woodlands Police Station.

  4. That guesture will not fool us. FAZ has no money to even dream of writing off debts. Only the blind will see that as a positive development. We want to see the skeletons in your FAZ cabinet. Even that Malawian Mawere has dipped into FAZ coffers. We need a forensic audit to see who is clean.. If any
