Kalu Ban Rattles Disciples…Kalusha Would Have Been First Black FIFA President

Banned former FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya’s disciples have gone in overdrive defending his US$80, 000 bribe that landed him in hot soup with others going as far as blaming his successor Andrew Kamanga.

Bwalya or King Kalu as his sworn defenders love to call him has been handed a two-year ban with a US$100, 000 fine for the US$80, 000 he received from banned Qatari businessman Mohammed Bin Hammam over Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup bid.

Kalusha is just a small cog in a globally well-known tale that has claimed even the chief priest of football corruption Sepp Blatter, his general secretary Jerome Valcke, Jack Warner, Chuck Blazer (turned witness) and Amos Adamu among others.

What hope does Kalusha have given he was specifically mentioned by the Sunday Times expose as having received that money in his personal account?

Maybe he prefers the more risky route of a US$30, 000 appeal fee that he may not afford right now with the possibility of an extended ban. Has FIFA ever reversed any ban so far? Perhaps the loyalists should focus more on helping him raise the US$100, 000 fine (K1 billion old currency) than incite him on taking a more self-destructive path of challenging the truth. No one has ever disputed Kalusha’s credentials on the pitch, those credentials remain impeccable perhaps the greatest any Zambian has ever seen. But the weakness with money and poor administration remains a dark spot on his otherwise glittering football career.

Another of his ardent disciples in journalist Oliver Chisenga claims Bwalya has been banned to halt his chances of becoming the first black FIFA President. That is how deep the loyalty runs.

    Leave great Kalu alone. Some of you are even worse than great Kalu and you will never amount upto anything. The judgemental bloggers above only knows how to release poisonous vernom and can’t reason within their brains but reasons with their asses.
    You the same people insulted Clive Chirwa day in day out and yet at the end of the day he was found innocent and swore never to come to Zambia again. Zambians act on impulse. Analyses issues with your brains and not just yapping like clueless ducks. There is one thing am sure about this case, it won’t go anywhere.

      waking up to the truth is never easy but at some point we all nef to open our eyes

    • ROKA

      Surely, can you compare Prof Chirwa to Kantashi Sec School, who majored in football! He confessed that”yali ninkongole faz yakongwere”As for Prof Chirwa, it total jealousy! Kali deserves the ban, in fact the committee was very lenient! Elyo pali arrogance niso tambe!And that FIFA protected itself by making untouchable by making governments action as interference!

    TRUTH always ends in TRIUMPH.
    KALU be strong and if FIFA president was corrupt what of his members?
    DON’T BLAME KALU people at times things happen and you can fail to solve it.
    KALU was just like a drop of water in a ocean in that committe how do you expect him to challenge the all group who were willing to get a bribe?

Elyo pali arrogance niso tambe!And that FIFA protected itself by making untouchable by making governments action as interference and yet they played a very big role in terms of funding national football teams.Look at the way kalu belittled the veteran football administrator, Mr Mulonga and other seasoned administrators Akatanshi takalisha,lelo akalekelesha kena kalalisha!Let him appeal and he will spend more than he has been fined,who knows,it could be increased!

    Chris Phiri; you are very bad man, I doubt if you are really a christian. I have followed your articles on Kalusha, they are full of hatred. You must be a victim of Kalu success somehow. You can climb the top of the mountain and preach negatives things on Kalu but you will never take what he has done for his country. Kalu said he will defend himself, give him a chance to do so.

    This Chris Phiri has the heart of the devil. I wonder what great Kalu has done to you. Your vernom is curse upon this land. The Bible says don’t judge lest be judged yourself. Does that mean I like corruption? No. But for this is the opportunity you have to spill your vernom over the issue Kalu said he will appeal. Suppose the appeal rules out in favor, what verminous nonsense are you going to release. Leave himself in peace. Don’t mistake me for, I am not even Zambian. The only thing most Zambians know is act on impulse and release cursed vernom language instead of critically analyzing and helping the fallen or downtrodden. There are lot of your relatives who have errored, why haven’t you released your cursed vernom judgemental language on them. So you mean you are holier than thou. Appreciate the heroes you have. Great made us proud and I cannot find idiot words to condem him like hell once he errors. I will encourage him to do the correct thing and still continue loving him.

  27. The Footballer

    Just wait and see ,Kalu will baunce back never say die,Kalusha Bwalya internatinal football star.
    Kamanga and his stogies hve been pushing for this ban behind the scenes,but they will soon regreat it.
    Kalusha is ten times better than kamanga

  28. nefertiti

    Kalusha the greatest ever. He’s still young. Shall start with car then fifa.
    This ban has been instigated from Zambia
    Remember how some neighbouring countries refused to cooperate with fifa for their national to be persecuted but our faz and acc were overjoyed at the chance to bring Kalusha down?
    It’s a passing phase my great. Take heart.
