The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee of the World Football governing body FIFA has banned African football legend Kalusha Bwalya from all football-related activities for two years.

The ban is in relation to a $80 000, Kalusha received from former Asian soccer leader Mohammed bin Hammam between 2009 and 2011.

"The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has banned Kalusha Bwalya, member of the executive committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), for two years from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level.

The investigation against Mr Bwalya was opened on 28 February 2017, and focused principally on benefits that Mr Bwalya had received from Mr Bin Hammam." FIFA wrote on their official website.

Bwalya who is a member of the executive committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) was found guilty of having violated art. 16 (Confidentiality) and art. 20 (Offering and accepting gifts and other benefits) of the FIFA Code of Ethics.

A fine of CHF 100,000 was also imposed on on the former President of the Football Association of Zambia. The ban comes into effect immediately.
