KALU PULLS OUT OF CAF RACE! as he refuses FAZ integrity test

African soccer icon Kalusha Bwalya has pulled out of the CAF executive committee elections, the ZamFoot Crew can exclusively reveal.

The former Football Association of Zambia, FAZ President has been battling it out with incumbent Andrew Kamanga for the CAF ExCom position in the past one month or so.

While Kamanga has already filed in his nomination at CAF headquarters in Cairo, Egypt , Kalusha needs Kamanga to rubber stamp his nomination papers for the CAF regional Southern Africa executive committee position.

With both vying for the same position, Kalusha has insisted on the FAZ executive committee to go to the ballot while the FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala has said Football House will follow the constitution including the now infamous integrity test.

“I am already in the CAF Executive Committe and I do not need to undergo any integrity test,” the 1988 African Footballer of Year was quoted by the Zambia Daily Mail over the weekend.

In what was seen as a remarkable climbdown, Kamanga accepted to be subjected to the ballot by his own executive commitee to decide Zambia’s envoy for the CAF Southern Africa post seat.

But Kalusha has dramatically quit the race after refusing to take the integrity test.

In 2017 Kalusha quit the FIFA Council race which requires integrity checks to compete.

Walter Nyamilandu from Malawi was elected.

FAZ endorsed Kalusha for the FIFA Council seat.

Kalusha second term at CAF ends this monthend.

The CAF elections will be held in Cairo in July 18, 2019.

    Am very concerned about this FAZ integrity test for those vying for higher positions in Football circles. This clause needs to be revised because It is not transparent at times and no clear guide lines. When we look at the term integrity let it not be used against only some few individuals, let us look at all those would be candidates. When I look at most of the people in FAZ I would say majority of them do not qualify to be there starting from how they ascended to those positions.The other issue that needs to be addressed seriously, is the composition of the team (FAZ) to look at some ones nomination. Today it may be me, tomorrow it will be you. Even as we go to FAZ elections, let us take this integrity issue seriously and we have no contestants qualified to stand. The other point is that has our FAZ constitution banned indirectly some individuals from contesting these positions?

    African politics even in Sports. Power struggle and jealousy at play. Sad….
