  1. FAZ , Let’s be realistic, When clubs are Being registered with your Association they do the right procedures by submitting their credentials to you, eg a List of Proprietors and all leadership rendering to the Club. Also they submit to you their approved registered football team players. Let anyone who is bringing confusion to this CITY of Lusaka face the rough of the law. BANNING THE CLUB IS NOT A SOLUTION because you the being the country’s football governing body have the records. Your interest should be to promote and protect your constitution ” What it states regarding such circumstances ” Unless you have your interest belonging somewhere else. Tomorrow there could be other elite individuals claiming for another club and dividing it. BANNING THE CLUB NOT A GOOD RESOLUTION AT ALL. BAN THE SELFISH INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE CAUSING THE FRACASES.
    FAZ Kindly confirm to the public that you have unregistered clubs taking in any of leagues in this country. If you confirm then FAZ is questionable????
