The Football Association of Zambia has dismissed as falsehoods and incorrect allegations by some members of the football fraternity and the general public that FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya wants to change the constitution to suit his personal interests as a product of people who lack understanding of the provisions of the rules and regulations governing the presidency of the association.
In a statement to fazfootball.com on Wednesday, FAZ Communications Manager Nkweto Tembwe said some stakeholders were unfairly accusing Kalusha of abrogating the provisions of the Faz Constitution for personal gain.
“It should be noted that Kalusha has never and will never advocate for a life presidency,” Tembwe said.
“These allegations are not only false but a product of people who lack understanding of the provisions of the rules and regulations which govern football regards the presidency of the association.
“The constitution of the association cannot be changed by an individual or group of individuals outside the realms of the policy makers who are the counsellors.
Tembwe added that the FAZ Constitution in its current form allows a candidate to contest for the position of president without limiting terms.
He further stated that members of the Association were free to propose motions to be considered for discussion at the Annual General Meeting.
“We are however duty bound to administratively facilitate such motions and proposals when they are tabled in line with the constitutional provisions of FAZ,” Nkweto said.
The Football Association of Zambia may convene an extra-ordinary meeting of the council were FIFA is expected to come and make a key note address regards management and administration of football in Zambia.
