FAZ president Andrew Kamanga has remained positive after losing the CAF Executive Committee elections on Thursday.
Kamanga was seeking the CAF Southern zone seat before losing to Mauritian Mohammed Ally Sobha.
The FAZ president got 12 votes against Samir who had 38 votes while Adam Mthetwa of Swaziland received 2 votes.
“We fought a good fight, we continue to sell our idea of transparency,” Kamanga told FAZ media after the elections.
Zimbabwe’s Fenton Kamambo and Elvis Chetty of Seychelles pulled out of the race.
The CAF Southern zone seat was held by Kalusha Bwalya who was not nominated by FAZ in preference to Kamanga.
