IT’S NOT BY FLUKE WE’RE ON TOP…Keith tells off doubters
SOCIAL media has over the past weeks been awash with reports that Super Division promotion bound Manchester United Zambia Academy (FC MUZA) have been awarded an appalling number of penalties with many users casting aspersions that they were on top of the FAZ Division One Zone Four by fluke.
But the director of the club Keith Mweemba, a lawyer by professional, said it was not by fluke that the Mazabuka based side are in the driving seat of the FAZ Division One Zone Four and are now on the verge of clinching Super Division promotion.
In a special interview with Zambezi FM on Saturday evening in Livingstone, Mweemba said the success the club is currently enjoying is as a result of the hardworking and a lot of investments.
He clarified and put to rest the debate surrounding the number of penalties FC MUZA have received, saying that the exact and overall number was seven.
And Mweemba stressed that besides the Division One side they are running various projects that includes the women’s side and the U-20s – who are currently competing in the FAZ Division Two.
Meanwhile the soft spoken Mweemba implored traducers to stop hiding behind social media and making malicious allegations against the club. He added that this was not a matter of life and death for people to be fighting about.
And FC MUZA Secretary General Joel Kabika cited an example of officials who have been slapped with bans for life by FAZ for obtaining and circulating illegally obtained FAZ documents on Social media. He warned that similar action or perhaps legal action could be taken against traducers should they continue.
Mr. Kabika, a former FAZ registrar expressed disappointment that people were hellbent on soiling the reputation of his club despite knowing his well documented honourable attributes.
He said many football administrators across the country had passed through his hands and they can testify to his quintessential attributes. He added that it does not sit well with him that people are accusing the club he was associated with of bribing referees.
FC MUZA are in Livingstone, scheduled to take on Livingstone Pirates at Busiku Ground on Sunday in a FAZ Division One Zone Four week 28 fixture.
The Noel Phiri coached side is currently in the driving seat of the zone with 46 points in 25 games played. They have only lost once and have drawn 13 games.
