FAZ President clarifies his financial support to City of Lusaka Football Club

I wish to take this opportunity to dispel recent reports alleging that I have been funding confusion at City of Lusaka Football Club.
City of Lusaka Football Club falls on the list of many great clubs that have faced great financial challenges in recent years.
Like many Zambians who have been ardent followers and supporters of the Zambian game for many years, I took it upon myself to contribute to the growth of the game by providing some financial support towards the club.

My contribution to the club’s financial growth dates as far back as 1995. I felt a great responsibility as a Zambian, to offer support to a club that has produced great legends and continues to be a source of livelihood for many young people wishing to make a living through football.

It is indeed a fact that the Justin Zulu led group were courteous enough and reminded me that I needed to meet my sponsorship commitment and I agreed that I will, like in the past help the club.
It is however, saddening that the Simata Simata led group jumped on it and accused me of funding City of Lusaka. When I challenged them to produce evidence; they provided a social media posting.
I am sure even today if they have proof of any payment from a City of Lusaka FC account they should produce it. How can a social media posting be a basis of proof of payment?

At the bearest minimum, I would be happy to pay into a club designated account and be issued with a valid receipt.

I have now come to realise how wrong I was to have nominated this man for General Secretary, and how right I was to heed to the advice of the executive committee to reject him.

Last year, Mufulira Wanderers supporters invited me to their fundraising dinner and I was asked to contribute, which I did. Is that also funding confusion or in breach of any of our FAZ statutes?
Even Mr Simata has been availed advances prior to joining his new employer is that also in breach? By the same token I expect him to redeem his advances including guarantees. Will I be in breach to ask for what is legimately due to him.

To this day, I honestly have no problems assisting the club financially. I am however, not going to provide any financial contribution for this year until the perceived wrangles between the parties involved are resolved.
It is greatly disappointing that at a point when we should be channeling our energies towards the development of football in the country, we have resorted to innuendos without any basis.
Let us utilize the right channels of communication whenever we feel aggrieved.

My contribution towards the development of Zambian football started way before I was elected FAZ president and will continue even after I leave office.

It Is my sincere hope that we could all work together and share ideas on how best we can move our game forward.

    Many years ago when Simataa became chairman of City of Lusaka in a short spell he fired my father and almost the entire technical team at City. He brought in what he termed “new blood” and the result of that was failure at its best. City for that season went nowhere. Just stuck mid table in division one. At that time I begun to see how erratic this mans decision making is. He has a very strong personality but unfortunately channels this gift in a wrong way. Kamanga should have known that this guy would never accept him, Kamanga, as his boss because he obviously feels he is far more deserving of Kamanga’s office than Kamanga. Simataa needs a chill pill for sure.
