FAZ CEO Irregularly Awards Himself A $10, 000 Loan

FAZ general secretary Ponga Liwewe has irregularly awarded himself a US $10, 000 (about K100, 000).

Some FAZ executive committee members are upset that Liwewe made a significant financial transaction without following procedure.

Sources in the FAZ executive have questioned the criteria Liwewe used to obtain a loan without the approval of the executive committee.

The committee members are particularly incensed that Liwewe gave himself a loan when national team players are still owed arrears for matches played as far back as 2016.

“This decision has just been told to us in passing. The executive has not approved anything to do with a loan for the general secretary.

“In fact, the only thing that the executive committee was told is that he will be resigning after the Cosafa Under-20,” the source added.

The executive committee member who spoke on condition of anonymity charged that FAZ president Andrew Kamanga had been preaching transparency and accountability but the practice at Football House was far from the message.

“Surprisingly the president is very quiet on this loan. He doesn’t want to talk about it because it is his friend involved, but this is not right,” the source added.

The executive committee member believe the FAZ secretariat is sliding into ungovernable state because it was lacking leadership.

    Liwewe must take back the money.If indeed some players ar still being owed it is irregular for Ponga to get that money and ACC must come in quickly.

      Sir/madam, the ACC is a dead button, requiring a technician to fix it. STOP relying on them.

    Ponga,go back and loan yourself another $90,000 so that it becomes a cool $100 k. Then it will be worth the news.

    Though a loan is payable he must have use the normal procedure instead of taking the powers in his own hands.Mr Liwewe take back the money and follow the right channel.

      FAZ President, knock off the undesirable events and get it run better. The General Secretary must be made to account.

    There seems to be a leeway @ FAZ IN HOW the executives @ FAZ AWARD themselves Branding/Cash/Loans without checks and balances. Not so long ago the story hit the social media on how one awarded oneself Branding of Stadia from same FAZ, before long it is a loan awarded to oneslf before (Even) payment of LEgiTImaTe monies owed by FAZ to National Players. (Who equally are key players and bring glory for it is upo their legs that game makes one proud and future depends).
    THIS REKINDLES THE FAILURE by FAZ to tighten those loop holes called FINANCIAL DISCIPLINE. Eeeee ubomba mwibala afwila alya mwi? Mwibala, but use established channels to obtain Financial favours? Does that make one feel like a camel going through the eye of a needle? [Too much to Bear]? Why is there preference to cut corners on a large scale in this Country? Someone ‘ve the Curtesy to exlpain this vice that wants to have it’s ugly head surface once again? Comment

    That’s unfair, bamudala ponga

    This story is more of an empty waffle from a disgruntled or jealous wannabe whistle blower.

    Nowheredin the story are we told the retulations and procedures governing loans in FAZ administration.

    About players not being paid years ago or presently. Every organisation or entity has a budget. I’m more than sure FAZ expenses are not disbursed anyhow like grocery shopping. Here are budgets and fund accounts for specific streams, such as national team logistics, player and staff payments, general administration.

    So it would be unfair to suggest that staff get loans from funds budgeted for player payments. I’m sure you get salaries from the staff salary account, and player payments from their account.

    So if the players account is dry, life goes on in other accounts such as staff salaries and benefits!
