Kamanga Speaks on Looming FIFA Ban

Sports Feature Sports Kamanga Speaks on Looming FIFA Ban

FAZ president Andrew Kamanga says the onus is on those that took Football House to the courts of law for the looming FIFA ban to be avoided.

FIFA has in a letter dated June 30,advised all parties to ensure the injunction that halted the FAZ elections be withdrawn from courts.

A non FAZ councillor Damiano Mutale filed an injunction halting the provincial FAZ elections after questioning the processes’ legality that had been completed in six out of the ten province and would have culminated in the FAZ presidential elections on March 30.

“”We have 10 days to normalise and be compliant. In the last 3 and half months we have been in breach of FIFA statutes by having these matters in court. If we don’t have this case out of court in the next 10 days we are going to be sanctioned so hopefully we won’t get past the 10 days and normalise then we can have elections,” Kamanga said.

The situation has just three working days after the Heroes and Unity Holiday to be normalised when business resumes on July 7.

“It’s not for me to be confident. We have rules that govern football we just been reminded that if not normalised we shall get FIFA ban. Unfortunately if that happens its everyone that’s going to suffer so you should be asking those that have taken FAZ to court they only have six days,” Kamanga said.

  1. No it’s both Kamanga and the people who took him to court to blame. His mess is too big for all of us to just watch. Something had to be done. We are already banned from Fifa since we’ve been knocked out of all competitions so Kamanga just pack up

  2. Afcon minister, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Damiano a non FAZ card carrying member has taken FAZ to court over elections of which ifwe bakopala we’ve already gone through. Leave AK alone unless you’re part of the ilegal faz security team which was being led by Damiano and Shenko with the sole purpose of sharing gate takings

  3. Please withdraw that matter from the courts urgently. A FIFA ban would mean ; our girls who qualified for Olympics will not be allowed to participate , The team which qualified for CHAN will not be allowed to participate. Qualifiers for AFCON and Worldcup will be curtailed.
    Please ,for the sake of our footballers withdraw the matter. A FIFA ban has very serious consequences to football, and people’s livelihoods

  4. It is Kamanga’s problem that Zambian girls are thrown out of olympics, and all the progress of Mwepu and Daka will just go in vein

  7. Kamanga should resign for bringing FAZ in this trench. He’s like a Driver who lost control and the Truck is in the mugodi and can’t see that it was his fault. Always blaming the Owner of the Truck and the Insurance Company. Kamanga you’re a bad Driver. Quit the job for everyone’s good.

  9. Andrew Kamanga is a duly elected FAZ President. Just because the Galu for President is now an obsolete project, his pact members still want to push the agenda forward like cult members. It’s time to leave AK the h.ell alone to do his job with peace and quiet. The Damiano whatever his name is should withdraw the petition by Wednesday. What kind of stupiditi is this?

  10. The management of football in Zambia seems to be on an honest open trajectory with accountability because of kamanga, with money coming in and proper support for clubs …

    It is because of this money coming in that the rats have smelled and will stop at nothing to get to FAZ deals.

    How many times have the rats tried to frame AK with bogus charges to try to disrupt the accountability that exists ?

    AK be strong , FAZ is for all Zambians, not a few PF rats who just want to chew

  11. Andrew Ndanga Kamanga wants to play smart when he’s the cause of the problems at Football House. Just own up and accept your failures. All those people can’t be against you. When the Minister wanted to help you do what FIFA has requested you accused him of siding with Kalusha. You removed Kalusha from CAF when you nominated yourself but he’s back in CAF, aren’t you ashamed? Don’t pretend. Money has been stolen at FAZ and the computer saver with the data has also been stolen why have you failed to act in the same you swiftly did when you accused Kazala? Andrew don’t play with us, I hope DEC does a thorough investigation so that we see who’s who

  12. That ***** Damiano.. Where is he by the way? He should just say he wants to continue getting free monies from gate ticketing.

  13. Damiano under the tutelage of that thief kalusha decided to take FAZ to court without knowing the implications. Now kalusha is in the clear leaving his stooge to take the blame of having the country banned by FIFA. I hope he comes to realize that he is just being used.

  14. I am just appealing that with one voice , we prevent the FIFA ban. This can only happen if the case is withdrawn from court. Differences between Kamanga and Kalusha can be discussed later.
    Please, this is an urgent matter. Please for the sake of Zambian football, let’s have this matter withdraw from the courts

  16. Hon. Mulenga is alive to this matter and as minister responsible, we should neither worry nor fear anything. He will sort it out.

  17. Image our girls worked so hard to qualify for the Olympics(first in our history) now the corruption and politics at FAZ will mean they will lose out! Let’s get this resolved for the sake of the players wish fifa would just ban only the officials.

  18. Kamanga does not understand football management,that’s why he made Kabwe warriors to be relegated.
    Having the football matter in court can never make Zambia to be banned. Unless in a situation were the court prevents FAZ from carrying its functions.
    eg Nigerian FA presidency was at Nigerian court for more than 4 years. Only when the court prevented the FA from carrying its functions that’s when the ban was done.
    Look at KAZALA he was allowed by FIFA to take his matter to Zambian court..
    Kamanga is clueless on football administration matters.
