FAZ suspends U- 17 women national manager Haalubono.

General News FAZ suspends U- 17 women national manager Haalubono.

Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has suspended the Under 17 national Team manager Charles Haalubono for negligence. This follows after a video went viral on social media showing six under 17 women national team players boarding public transport.

FAZ Secretary General Adrian Kashala indicates that the association had facilitated transport for players but had unfortunately learnt that the team’s personnel opted for an unofficial mode of transport after they finished their task ahead of the scheduled time.

Currently there are three women national teams in camp namely the senior Women National Team, the under-20 and under-17.

“FAZ has instituted investigations into the circumstances and have suspended the team manager with immediate effect,” said Kashala.

He noted that FAZ under Mr Andrew Kamanga has set a very high bar for itself in terms of providing and camping women’s national teams .

He further regrets that an act of negligence on the team management of the under-17 girls has drawn widespread condemnation.

“FAZ remains committed to maintaining the very high bar set for the teams especially women teams that have continued to make the nation proud,” Kashala says.

He explains that the video footage comprises some under-17 girls that had gone to the passport office for interviews in preparations for the Region V Games to be staged in December.

Meanwhile, the FAZ Secretary General has commended the under 20 shipolopolo team for their six nil victory against their Malawi counterparts at Nkoloma stadium , yesterday.

“The under-20 girls did the nation proud on Friday by beating Malawi 6-0 at Nkoloma Stadium. The girls will remain in camp until the time they fly to Malawi for the return leg of the Costa Rica 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on October 9, ” he said.

He further added that the senior Women’s National Team are expected to fly to South Africa on Monday for the 2021 COSAFA Women’s Championship.

This is contained in a statement made available to the media by FAZ Communications Manager Sydney.


  1. Yes , that is what we want to see , accountability……….

    If after investigations it is found those team members refused other mode of transportation, then ok……

  2. “FAZ remains committed to maintaining the very high bar set for the teams especially women teams that have continued to make the nation proud,” Kashala says….. the results should reflect those so called high standards.

  3. The useless man was trying to emulate the useless president by trying to appear simple and down to earth. Good riddance. What is wrong with people from a certain tribe

  4. Kashala has no shame. There’s confusion in the league because of his actions. What high bar have you set? You collected K5,000 from Young Green Eagles and granted a waver to use an ineligible player against Nkana. Your actions were in violation of FIFA Statutes. Andrew Kamanga has allowed the league to start before the disciplinary committee sits to conclude that matter. Now Young Green Eagles have refused to play in Division 1, is that a high bar? If anyone deserves to be kicked out of Football House it’s Adrian Kashala. The computer saver is still missing, one day you’ll answer for it

  5. The under 20 girls are more organized than men senior team. Chambeshi and his team should watch Under 20 girls on YouTube, they know how to keep positions. Even that Ester Katongo position better than Mwepu. Number 11 mukali Zambia boys has no left winger , number 2 of girls best right back.

  6. Nostradamus – I dont know whether you comment has sexist undertones because I am not familar with names…I would be very glad it hasn’t for you maybe you are growing up!!

  7. FAZ can be the wealthiest independent organisation in Zambia just from merchandise alone football being the number one sport. And buses if they played their cards right they would have an official bus sponsor…I mean a company would be paying them to use their buses for free. I thought Kamanga was a business man.

  8. FAZ should just involve itself with FOOTBALL, and don’t interfere childishly with simple logistical issues. These FAZ bozos never learn.
