Walter Bwalya banned for misconduct

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) Disciplinary Committee has handed Nkana striker Walter Bwalya a three match ban for misconduct during the Samuel Zoom Ndhlovu Charity Shield final which his club lost 2-0 to Zesco United played on April 2, 2017.

Bwalya was caught on camera shoving referee Wellington Kaoma with his side down 1-0.

The 2016 MTN/FAZ top scorer pleaded guilty on all counts that include attacking a match official, threatening a match official and contesting a referee’s decisions.

The Joseph Jalasi chaired committee also fined Bwalya with a K2, 200 for his conduct.

“The Joseph Jalasi led disciplinary committee has further fined Bwalya K2,200 for his unprofessional conduct during the game. Bwalya is expected to pay the fine within 14 days of the verdict,” said FAZ Communications Manager Desmond Katongo in a statement.

Bwalya appeared before the committee at Football House and readily admitted to his conduct.

The ban will rule Bwalya out of this Friday’s MTN/FAZ Super Division week two fixture match against Nchanga Rangers and games involving Napsa Stars and Zesco United in week three and four respectively.

Bwalya scooped  the top scorer award after banging 24 goals for his club last season.

He was on target in the semi final of the Charity shield that his side won 3-0 over Zanaco on March 31 at Arthur Davies Stadium.

Nkana have a point from their opening fixture on match day one after being held 1-all by Nakambala Leopards.

    Thats lack of discipline over stupidity multply by ignorance. He deserve to be punished. Without discipline the future look bleak.

  2. Logic says:

    What about the team itself for the conduct of it’s fans?

  3. Mwebantu says:

    FAZ is killing us! Nkana!

  4. Big Steve 4rm SA says:

    Well done to the disciplinary committee…about time they started doing their job.

  5. That was the highest order of indiscipline and unsportsmanship behaviour from WALTER, he deserves the three match ban and fine. Nkana supporters always think that there team is obligated to winning and immuned from defeat, FAZ should have also banned the supporters for a couple of games. No hooliganism in football, try politics.

  6. Kasama Boy says:

    Its always sad when indiscipline rears its ugly head. Walter is a good player headed for much bigger things than winning a charity shield, so I wish him well after his return from the ban.

  7. Kasama Boy says:

    Ba ZAMFOOT is Zambia’s ZESCO back? Any news about them?

  8. Egwugwu says:

    I complained bitterly to Ponga over this players attack towards the referee but am glad that he is banned for three games ,this will make him learn that ZAMBIAN Football is bigger than one foolish player .

    Ba Billy do not use xenophobic language.I feel it is double punishment for Walter,K2000 na Three match ban.

  10. Egwugwu says:

    K 2,200 is a small fine looking at the magnitude of the offence he committed i would have loved even a 20,000 fine.Besides the clubs pays not him.

    @Ba Billy i agree with @kensplash. We can’t be saying all Congolese players behaviour in such a way. Let’s look at our own players and suggest what can be done to stop this behaviour which i condemn in the strongest sense.
