Kamanga Beats Kalu to CAF Nomination

Former Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Kalusha Bwalya has been knocked out of the CAF executive committee race.

According to a list of successful candidates for the July 18 elections, Bwalya’s candidature fell through with FAZ president Andrew Kamanga joining the race.

The CAF executive committee met and scrutinized the candidates with Bwalya whose candidature came on the back of resistance from his successor falling through.

Bwalya has served two terms at the CAF executive committee and had expressed interest to defend his seat but needed the backing of the Football Association of Zambia.

Other candidates that will slug it out with Kamanga are Sobha Samier (Mauritius), Bomber Mthetwa (eSwatini), Elvis Chetty (Seychelles) and Felton Kamambo (Zimbabwe).

Kamanga will now have to negotiate his way past three other candidates to join the CAF elite club.

The Kalusha and Kamanga rivalry has been highly divisive of the Zambian game with their supporters vigorously fighting each other.

    Kamanga he’s a letdown.

  10. matanda Grants

    what good has Kamanga done to our football? remind me, maybe I have forgotten,can Kamanga be compared to Kalusha in anyway? people let’s not be so forgetful, Kalusha is still our pillar,he has done a lot of work for the Zambian football.indeed God will see him through.

    • Kanganja

      Kamanga is the worst thing to happen to our football. Just imagine Zambia not featuring at afcon! Since when? It’s from Afcon that Africa knows Emmanuel Mwape, Ashios Melu, Gibby Zulu Elija Litans, Alex Chola Zoom Ndlovu Efford Chabala Ucar Chitalu Bernard Chanda. Someone arrives and he thinks we must now become spectators? What a loser!

  11. Warren mwansa

    It’s okay Mr bwalya you will get other opportunities it’s not the end of the world your cv it’s still intact

  12. Noah

    Kalusha has played his part tym for others to take over we shall not have kalusha as wamuyayayaa

  13. WWE fan

    Ba Kalu, you are great but many people do not like you coz of your pomp. During your days of playing you were humble but not anymore. This is why you could not coach Chipolopolo, now you rely on your connections with big shots instead of your unmarched football CV. Be humble

  14. Noah

    So u want kalusha to b wamuyayaya let kamanga finish his term and then u kn ask your self that question or remind yourself of Kananga will have done by that tym

  15. SIDNEY MFULA

  17. THE ONLY LIVING JAY

    Nobody can ever take away wat great things Kalu has done 2Zambian futbo. But to compare him to AK n suggest that continues sitting on the CAF executive 4reva, iz being mischievous…

  18. Zb

    Those who are insulting Kalu, can you compare him to Kananga? Nimwemutasha lilyafilipakanwa. Kamanga has done nothing in faz so far. He should go back to his businesses so that we start enjoying football in Zambia. Let someone experienced football control the comment. Better any former player than kamanga.

    • Kamanga should leave! we want to be happy

      Zb Some people will want to live in shit just because the shit is what has scares away their personal enemy

    • Jerabo

      James Kapalu go hang! If you can’t see Kalusha’s numerous achievements Zambian soccer doesn’t need you anywhere near our stadiums. Zambian soccer and Kalu are one. Kamanga will never even be remembered. He can’t compete against a legend

  22. Mulenga

  31. PEACEMAKER

    KALU, I AM SURE YOU HAVE DONE A LOT BUT WHEN IT HAPPENS THAT SOME ELSE TAKES OVER LEGALLY, LET’S LEARN TO SUPPORT.

  32. LEZA NJAVWA

    YOU CANNOT TALK ABOUT LEGENDS IN ZAMBIAN FOOTBALL WITHOUT MENTIONING NAMES LIKE SAMUEL ‘ZOOM” NDHLOVU, DICK CHAMA, GODFREY CHITALU, ALEX CHOLA, KAISER KALAMBO, ACKIM MUSONDA, ASHIOS MELU, KALUSHA BWALYA TO MENTION BUT A FEW.
    KALUSHA THE 1988 FOOTBALLER OF THE YEAR WAS THERE WHEN ZAMBIA NEEDED HIM MOST. FOR THE 2012 AFCON, KALUSHA WAS AT THE HELM.
    WE APPRECIATE THAT ITS TIME FOR MR KAMANGA BUT I MUST HASTEN TO SAY THAT OUR CHIPOLOPOLO HAS FAILED TO QUALIFY FOR THE LAST TO AFCONS. WHO IS TO BLAME????
