CAS: FAZ flawed to expel Kazala, Siwale
The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) flawed with the procedure leading to the expelling of Richard Kazala and Blackwell Siwale from the position of vice president and Executive committee, respectively.
According to a ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) the entirety of the produce should be refreshed.
Apparently Kazala and Siwalle where not given a chance to speak in their defence prior to their expelling at the 2017 AGM. Misappropriation of funds is the charge laid against them.
For starters, CAS has directed FAZ president Andrew Kamanga, within a fortnight to provide Kazala and Siwale with a copy of charges and supporting documents which he provided to the Council, without submitting new evidence.
Within 28 days, the duo will then produce a response in defence to the charges levelled against them. The response will be sent to the General Secretary Ponga Liwewe, who in turn must include it in the agenda of the 2018 FAZ Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The council shall at the AGM in March resolve a motion to either dismiss the duo from the Football Association of Zambia.
In a phone Interview with the ZamFoot Crew , Blackwell nodded to have been in recipient of the letter and that it is not a pseudo. He confirmed that he will be at the FAZ AGM in March.
“The letter is not a sham. I can confirm to be in recipient of it and I will be in attendance at the AGM in March,” he said.
“Like I have always been saying, the procedure leading to our expelling was wrong. We had the right to be heard which was infringed.”
