Prospects of FIFA ban for Zambia Worries Wedson

Sports Feature Sports Prospects of FIFA ban for Zambia Worries Wedson

Ex-Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda is very concerned about the prospect of Zambia being banned by FIFA due to third party interference in the ongoing 2020 FAZ electoral process ahead of the March 29 elective annual general meeting.

Suspended football administrator Damiano Mutale and a non-FAZ councilor Patson Lusaka applied to have elections halted through a High Court order.

This has led FAZ to postpone all ongoing provincial elections that have so far taken place in Eastern, Western, North Western, Copperbelt, Luapula and Northern Provinces.

“We know where we have come from and we know where we are going. This bridge that we are at is shaky,” Wedson said.

“It is ether we get banned or we don’t. If that happens, it will be so unfortunate for Zambian because I think it will draw us a thousand miles back for us to come back and it will be difficult for us.

“I have seen nations go through this and it has been very difficult to recover.

“Everyone has to do the right thing. If I know it is not the right thing I am doing for the nation, then I should stop.

“Every one of us has a role to play to make sure that the path we are taking is straight.

“We should not be seen to be taking sides and what we need let the truth prevail.”

  2. Wedson is right, abena Kamanga are only thinking about their own. Football is different from a political party. Current FAZ is a political party.

  3. Oh no, don’t let that drawing board haunt us so early. FAZ make a plan n make it so we participate.

  4. The people to blame are the ones who went to the high court filling in an injunction to stop the process of elections going on all for personal reasons. One feels because may be he has not been treated fairly as an individual then the whole country should suffer just because of him. This is a spirit of destruction “tufilile munsenga”, why because they cant treat me like this. You question the spirit of patriotism in such individuals all for the hurt of the Andrew Kamanga administration. These characters attribute Kamanga’s failure to our non appearance at two africa cup finals in a roll. What are they saying now that the women’s national team has emerged as the best in Africa to represent us at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Such people are still seeing this as failure. Country men…

  6. KALU IS A GOOD MAN BUT THE SUPPORT HE IS GETTING FROM THE PF MAKES HIM BELIEVE HE CAN SOMEHOW WRESTLE THE PRESIDENCY FROM KAMANGA. BY THE WAY WHY NAME A ROAD AFTER KALU WHEN HE NEVER LIFTED A MAJOR TROPHY AS CAPTAIN OF CHIPOLOPOLO? THAT ROAD SHOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED CHRISTOPHER KATONGO ROAD FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.
