Zambian icon Kalusha Bwalya has launched an appeal against FAZ’s decision to disqualify him for the coming presidential election.
FAZ will hold the March 28 elective Annual General Meeting to determine the next FA president. Bwalya’s decision to challenge the ruling was confirmed by the Electoral Committee.
“The former FAZ president has raised preliminary issues in the matter and wants the Appeals Committee to determine whether or not the failure by the Ethics committee to furnish him with reasons for the purported failure of the integrity check is in violation of FIFA’s Article 74 of the FIFA Code of Ethics on transparency given that Article 60 of the FAZ constitution requires that the Code of Ethics of FAZ be in accordance with the principle as laid down in the valid FIFA Code of Ethics,” explained Zambia Reports.
Bwalya’s lawyers Lewis Nathan Advocates and Gilbert Phiri of PNP Advocates sent a letter to the FAZ Appeals Committee at the Football House.
“We humbly lodge in the appellant’s appeal together with bundles of documents on which the appellant shall place reliance,” stated the letter.
Meanwhile, the running candidates are FAZ president Andrew Kamanga, former FAZ vice-president Emmanuel Munaile and soccer administrator Joseph Nkole.
