FIFA to meet FAZ and Ministry of Sports…The current Executive to stay in power until elections are held
The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) will send a representative to Zambia to mediate over the wrangles that have rocked the Football Association of Zambia.
According to a letter from FIFA dated March 30th addressed to the Minister of Sport, Honorable Emmanuel Mulenga and availed to the ZamFoot Crew, FIFA Chief Member Associations Officer, Véron Mosengo-Omba will travel to Zambia after the eradication of the Coronavirus.
Véron is expected to meet FAZ, Representatives from the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Child Development and the relevant football stakeholders to discuss the current football situation in Zambia.
FIFA also emphasized that they would be more than pleased if the Minister were to join in the meeting once it is confirmed.
“I refer to our telephone call last week regarding the electoral process of the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ). FIFA is committed to an electoral process which respects its own statutes, The FAZ statutes, and the FAZ Electoral code.
Based on our discussion, I would like to confirm that I will travel to Lusaka, Zambia as soon as possible. As you will understand, the exact date of my visit depends on the eradication of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, and the easing of global travel restrictions. The aim of my visit will be to meet FAZ, Representatives from the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Child Development and the relevant football stakeholders to discuss the football situation in Zambia. I hope that you will be able to join these meetings once confirmed.”
FIFA has also reiterated its stance that the current FAZ Executive will remain in office until elections are held.
“In this context, and for the sake of stability in Zambian Football, I re-confirm FIFA’s position that the current FAZ Executive Committee shall remain in office and continue to manage football activities in Zambia until elections are held.”
Zambian football has been rocked with a lot of wrangles currently with a number of injunctions and court cases flying around aimed at postponing and stopping the election process
