Zambia Football Association has a new boss


Andrew Kamanga has been elected as president of the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) replacing Kalusha Bwalya after polling 163 out of 324 votes cast.

The announcement by Chairman of the Electoral Commission Sikwana Lukangaba was met with jubilation at Moba Hotel, as Kamanga prepares to be at the helm of Zambia's football governing body for four years.

Kalusha, was seen as the frontrunner, but Andrew Kamanga had an impressive momentum in the lead up to the election. Henschel Chitembeya, a former executive committee member, was always seen as an outsider.

Kalusha polled 156 while Henschel Chitembeya received a single vote. Four votes were declared invalid.

And Richard Kazala has been elected as vice president after polling 117 votes beating his closest rival Pivoty Simwanza who polled 107 votes. Mofya Chisala received 58 votes while Cephas Kampamba Katongo had 28 votes. Boniface Mwamelo polled 8 votes. There were 5 spoiled ballots.

Lee Kawanu has been re-elected as Executive Committee Member and is joined by new members Blackwell Siwale, Brenda Kunda, Elijah Shenko Chileshe, Kabaso Kapambwe and Dr Joseph Mulenga.
