In a statement released to the media by the Football Association of Zambia, FAZ are now seeking to endorse former president Kalusha Bwalya.
Bwalya is reportedly looking to join the FIFA Executive committee and was looking for the support from FAZ.
Previous reports indicated that the association was dragging its feet to help Bwalya due to a misunderstanding between him and his successor, Andrew Kamanga.
However, reports this weekend reveal that the association wants to support the former skipper on his FIFA membership aspirations.
“This statement summarises the decisions of the Executive Committee of the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) at its meeting held at Football House on 5th November 2016 to support the candidacy for FIFA Council Membership of immediate former FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya,” FAZ secretary, Ponga Liwewe said.
“1. At its meeting held at Football House on Saturday, 5th November, 2016, the Executive Committee of the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) unanimously agreed to support Kalusha Bwalya’s nomination for FIFA Council membership.
“2. As a sign of solidarity of Kalusha’s candidacy, thirteen Football Association presidents from the COSAFA Region will visit Zambia at the invitation of FAZ president Andrew Kamanga.
“3. The FAZ will send a formal request to the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) to join in the lobbying of Kalusha’s candidacy.”
