Zambia Football Body Retains Andrew Kamanga As President

The President of Football Association of Zambia, Andrew Kamanga, has retained his seat in an election held on Saturday.

The 54-year-old beat off challenge from former vice-president Emmanuel Munaile.

Kamanga, who sits on the FIFA Audit and Compliance Committee, secured 57 votes from the 86 available in the first round of voting.

The victory means that Kamanga and his new board will run the FAZ until 2025.

In his first four years in charge, Kamanga and his board sealed some ground-breaking sponsorship agreements with the private sector, and want to create unity with other stakeholders in second term.

“Healing is a priority, looking at where we are coming from in the last four years. We want to ensure that we unite everybody and speak with one voice,” said Kamanga after his re-election.

“I think the new executive has a duty to bring everybody on board.”

Meanwhile, Justin Mumba was voted in as the Vice President collecting 55 votes while his closest rival Gideon Mwenya only managed 31 votes while Lunga Mandona failed to collect any vote.

Elsewhere, Priscilla Katoba was in her own League collecting 67 votes to become the National Women’s representative with her closest challenger the incumbent Brenda Kunda managing only 7 votes.

The three elected members join the 10 chairpersons of the different provinces to make the 13-man FAZ Executive Committee.
