King Kalu Soldiers On!

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has set either May 18 or 22 as the dates for Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) vetoed presidential aspirant Kalusha Bwalya’s hearing through videoconferencing.

Kalusha, who applied to re-contest the FAZ top position, was disqualified on the basis that he failed an integrity test but appealed to CAS and also requested, among the provisional measures, that the elections be halted until his case is heard.

The CAS now has to decide whether Kalusha Bwalya should be barred or it should be voters to have a last word.

    Let him stand otherwise cases concerning top officials named and not named, will result in the courts being unfair. Zambian judiciary must be careful because without this board we are finished.

  2. Koswe

    The so called. Kamanga team have failed football fans in. Zambia let them go

  3. Paula

    Ammmm ba kalu!!! This kalwisha bwalya- kamanga case reminds me of the happenings between FTJ our late president and doctor KK my grandfather. People thought KK was eternal ( ba muyayaya) and without him in politics Zambia would not go extra miles, we thought he was the most powerful being concerning political matters. Thanks be to God that the opposite happened when FTJ came on the scene. I see the same trust people are putting in kalwisha.. Ba KK is even much better because he exposed his ministers to other countries unlike kalu . Please this kalu guy does not want players to go above him, remember what he did to kalaba( voted against him in becoming Africa player of the year) this is not a man we can entrust in office, please don’t get me wrong am not saying that we should vote for kamanga no, am saying that we need fresh blood in offices, the likes of chalse musonda, Chris katongo and not the selfish individuals who do not expose our players to where they have been. People should emmulate Samuel etoo ( took almost the whole team to play Spanish legue

    • OBULUZO 1

      Correct! If kamanga and not be voted for, then let’s have people in those offices but not Kalu.
      In Zambia we don’t seem to learn, akabwelela numa kalalya, same thing we do politically its like we’re so scared of change and new things. At least not Kalu the guy did his part.

      • Caljos

        Not kalu… I would rather have Kamanga in continuity than kalu. Let’s analyse the people behind his come back. If most of them are from the other tribes then I can say he deserves it to contest.

        • Kodi Tapwalala?

          Niyekuti palivamatribes pamene apa? I thought it was just a case of achiever Vs non-achiever?
          Is it the other tribes Vs Kalusha?

    • Iwe na iwe Think

      Has Charles Musonda ever expressed interest in soccer administration? ”
      Chris Katongo needs to nominate himself for FAZ he hasn’t so where are your fresh blood? The only contestants are these Kamanga Kalusha failures you are dissing so you just have to settle for the better failure

      • Paul

        Yes dear brother we have to settle for a better fool but for how long are we going to let foolish people run our desired affairs, it is through this constant commenting and influencing great minds like yours that we communicate to the sensible masses and probably envok emotional responses in fresh blood pressure etc

      • Paula

        This guy is not your friend and does not mean well for our players allevation , he might have won the afcon and that we agree and thanks, but for a man who does not lay his life for his brother( Kalaba) that man’s integride must be questioned. You must understand as an adult that it better we question the great Kalu of his deeds so that even us as a younger generation we must not insult correct thinking when we are put in those positions. Let us not be familiar with mediocrity. We are not bound to the Great Kalu.. No we are not.

    • Harry Nkandu

      the only problem we have in sports fraternity is that we don’t value sports men and women hence fighting for positions that can put food on their table

    • Twapapa

      GREAT KALU. You were a player. you became player coach. you became coach. then faz president for more than one term. You sat on the technical team of CAF. WHAT NEW IDEAS WILL YOU BRING TO SPORT? DOES THIS MEAN YOU HAVE NEVER THOUGHT OF WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU LEAVE SPORT? Remember ifyo mwasebene when you missed the vital penalty against Angola when you were player coach. at that time you accepted that your skill as player hard ended. Why dont you leave chance to others with fresh ideas.

  4. Jmmy@8

    Kalu must let it go coz he was there for 8year us FAZ president he was once a couch player,technical advisor and so on what did he achieved. This people are the same

  5. Simeon Daka

    Kalu just forget what do you want

  6. Davis Bwalya

    The real story about Kalusha Bwalya is that he wanted to behave like those Zambians in pre and post colonial days who will feel worshipped by mixing and marrying whites. It has proved to him that times have changed. Those whites he is mixing with in South Africa need a lot of money.
    That is he is now fighting so hard to have a chance to steal money again in order to satisfy them.
    This corrupt criminal must never be given a chance again. Let him go and look for a job if he has become broke.

    • roy

      More volume!!

    • Check made

      You seem to be jealous of him. Personal lives have nothing to do with football. Zambia needs a winner whether he is gay, corrupt or polygamist is besides the point

    • Slim

      Kalu stole big time, when queried he answered ” am not answerable to anyone”.

  7. Jms

    Being patriotic means allowing him but we all know that the best candidate on the line up please vote for him to change football, lets bring him so that he cooks football for us.

    • Pa Kachofa

      Kwena mwe I am not for Kalosermangas. I prefer kalushawinners

  8. Razor

    There is no way this crook can be allowed to dip into the FAZ coffers again. If Kamanga has failed then it is better for councilors to vote for a totally new person but never allow this FIFA convicted thief anywhere near football house.

    • Lusaka soccer

      Thief! Tell us what he stole iwe ngwele.

  9. Joseph

    It’s so that, the whole fight is more on selfish motives, sometimes it’s better to move on and let others also have their time. The best he can do probably, is to provide guidance where necessary.

    • Good goals

      Iwe Joseph our football has gone to the dogs. This is not Malawi. It’s Zambia. Zambians are winners not losers!

  10. Joseph

    It’s so sad, the whole fight is more on selfish motives, sometimes it’s better to move on and let others also have their time. The best he can do probably, is to provide guidance where necessary.

    • Francis Kapasa

      Mamamamama! Elo lwanya.!!!.who then has integrity.Kama?or Kalu? Is there integrity in barring someone? Is there on the other hand integrity in forcing oneself on Others? Both ks and there disciples should think twice.Otherwise those who think have integrity will be seen not having it let alone those who do not have.

  11. Papa p

    Kalusha Bwalya you are a failure you even failed your own team which all over the world to support talking Mighty Mufulira Wanders what do you want to which you didn’t do in your tenure of officer for 08 years as Fax president ? Just go and fish from Luapula woohoo!

    • Tatata

      Kamanga has planted social media campaigners and this papap is one of them

  12. Samuel Nonde Sikalumbi

    Taulapila aka last.

  13. Rodgers George Zimba

    Kali is acting out of selfishness,He was once a FAZ president for 8year’s what has he achieved from their,Nothing!which division one or two teams used to to get the support that their getting now from FAZ during his reign,I respect him as a prayer putting Zambia on the world map when they beat Italy in 1988,so what more does he want a man of jealous.Look at what he did to Kalaba,He doesn’t want anyone to win fame,He always want to maintain his name….You’ve failed the integrity taste what else does he want?leave the administration which is their and take your selfishness and cadrelism out of football?It’s like you don’t know what you want in life,the problem with Kalu thinks that he is a calabashi of knowledge..

  14. TRUTH

    Football is about results and the performance of these two K’s shows that performance wise Kalusha is better performer than Kamanga. The mesage of Kamanga is integrity while the mesage of Kalusha is performance of football.

    • Chachine

      You speak sense. I don’t want to be a loser

  15. Rodgers George Zimba

    • Theresa

      Very personal and no Grey matter in there

  20. Kanyanta Mporokoso

    Let all stand and allow competition and remove mediocrity and avoid poor recruitments like that of former Coach Sven Vanderbrok (the Belgium) who only succeeded in calling Zambia NOT a big footballing nation in Africa? and kept the job? which books did he read about Zambian football or who gave him history about Zambian football? That was an insult. Another case of mediocrity is FAZ’s reaction of mishandling of the game in world cup qualifier between Zambia and Nigeria by referee Bongo of Botswana disallowing a clear goal by Augustine Mulenga for offside. Incompetent FAZ team said no need to complain its too late. But after a review by super sport headed by Great South African sports commentator Thomas Konaite, that Zambia was robbed by that decision the naive FAZ had second thoughts about putting in an official complaint but it was too late, yes, this time it was too late. The failure to qualify the team to Africa Cup on two occasions and a third one in the offing. What more mediocrity do you what to see?

    • Kanyanta Mporokoso

      I think some of these comments are personal. Let us stop being personal but be objective and contribute wisely for the betterment of our game PLEASE

      • Bwalya

        Kalu we love you,abakupata nabobene Bantu you can’t be loved by every body,but ifwe twalikutiga, you’re out hero.and we need Africa cup again

        • Viva Kalu

          Yeah go Kalu! And keep this new coach. He is talented like you and Zambia is full of talent and with this coach and lusha at the helm we will go to the World cup

  21. SEE MIND

    ZAMBIAN LET’S KALU STAND ONLY VOTES TALK WILL BE ANSWER IF KALUSHA WANT HIM AS A NEXT FAZ PRESIDENT OR NOT VOTES FOR HIM. WE ARE HUMAN ZAMBIAN LET ALOW HIM STAND OK !

  22. mubita

    Kalu we’re behind you,we believe in you.

  23. Johns

    Johns
    Kalu we are behind you never mind those people who hate u some Zambians they always hate some one who is doing better than them it’s their characteristic.Keep on pressing on Kalu until they will be ashamed.

  24. Zee

    Let Kalu stand I support him. Since kamanga came in we hv problems for our senior team to qualify to Africa cup. But Kalu brought us dat cup. Let da votes speaks not comments o disqualified him. Go Kalu go zambia

  25. Musonda

    Ba Kalu insoni ebuntu
    What do you want to do for Zambian football that you failed to do in your time?You’ve already failed Just Accept it and move on..Give chance to other people who mean well for Zambian football not selfish people like you Sir!

    • Dik Sak

      U also don’t mean well for Kalu u’re a failure like useless Kananga. Can u call Kalu a failure, do you av sense. On the pitch he achieved and in administration he achieved a cup, qualifiers and wins. What else do you want u hypocrites? Those who are saying akabwelela numa kalalya that’s why Zambia will not develop you must accept defeat and get back to someone who did better even if he was there b4. Can you continue keeping ifipuba in the name of akabwelelo kalalya even if what u still av cilekulya ukucilanapo. Think twice, get back to someone if he can perform better, period. So u want Zambia to continue in this losing state right? Is that’s why u watch football to see losses as if it’s not yo country? Mulekwata amano, Kalu go, just work on corruption accusations. We want transparency free from favours which don’t mean well for Zambia.

      • Flu tball with Kamanga

        Dik sak sayings can be used for any argument. As far as I’m concerned Putin came back and Russia continues to progress akabwelela Numa is what Kamanga has done to Zambian soccer made it go back to 1966 when we couldn’t win anything. To watch Zambian football is to go catch flu. Corona flu

  26. M Rich

    Mr Kalusha, football is big business let business minded people run it. The best job for you is football analysis but I doubt if big TV companies will hire you anytime soon. It’s a no brainer footballers are not good football administrators. #frenchhero#corruption.

    • Dik Sak

      If u can call Kalu a better soccer analyst, can he fail to run faz? That’s the skill needed in football management, this means u don’t know what u’re talking about, just leave it to those who know the subject. Skills in soccer analysis will enable him to pick the right coatch and find diverse of football skills in various players to make a complete good team. Kalu may av weaknesses but still can perform better than those u may think of. Just help him to improve on those weaknesses.

  27. Mahala

    Kalusha & kamanga hate each other & becoz of FAZ presidential position,so as zambians we should not be divided by the 2

  28. Jms

    I’m disappointed to all supporters of these two disastrous creatures who doesn’t have that consciousness respect on each other, just let kalu stand and we need change, Emanuel munaile is the man here no dought, mwala Mona, ala tunaile chibwali ichikulu.dought not.

    • Yoyo

      I doubt Munaile will beat anyone. He doesn’t know campaigning like that Kamanga football loser he might be

  29. Giline

    All the best to the Great Kalu, football has gone down ever since you left FAZ.

  30. Zulu

    Kwena ine I never ever want to see Zambia lose 6-0. When did we ever lose like that? Perhaps in the 60s when we were not Fifa

  31. Manganga

    Not Galu Bwalya again, just full time crook, let him try other games or politics, soccer is too big for such selfish individual!

  32. Paulos

    Vote for me if you don’t like both guys. Don’t forget that quality of players matters quite a lot. You have no big names currently in the Zambian game.

    • Kaizer Kalambo

      Uleibepa! Just change FAZ management and you will see how these very players will start shining

  33. Big Moze

    The problem we have as Zambians is appreciation for achievement, Kalusha is a footballer and he understands soccer in and out unlike Kamanga.Honestly friends, how can Zambia be failing to qualify for afcon because of poor administration. Let those who have lived soccer run it.We are not qualifying even this third time because of poor administration. Since Kananga took over,Zambian soccer has been a laughing stork,loosing to countries like Mozambique, Malawi and other useless teams. It.breaks my heart as a staunch soccer lover. Zambia was a soccer powerhouse in Africa,but now we are the worst amakula.Its very very sad.

    • Makwati Yuda

      We Zambian’s let us respect kalu .he z the only person who brought happynes and joy to Zambian people in 2012 . Go Kalu Go. I salute u kalu.

  34. William Suku

    You are not need him now but then you shall regret him if itx to let so let’s not utilize him when itx never to late anyone has got is mistake to conquer as you’re still breathing the best for Zambia best for you ! -tsm- !

  35. Harry Chinkumbi

    The bottom line is this, Kalu is used to live a luxurious lifestyle and only the FAZ job can afford him that.

    He knows too well that FAZ has easy money and can’t imagine others having access to it.
    Government should give him a job. He has done some good for this country, let government honor some how.

    It’s high time he left FAZ slone

  36. Ba zed

    No kamanga no kalu.let’s try munaile

    • Munalula

      Munaile was just a footballer. He never managed any team

  37. Mr SICHONE MWANA WAKWI LANZI

    Kalusha failed. Kamanga has failed. So why can’t u try other people like katongo.going back z rubbish. So z these people are only allowed to contest. PLIZ ba zed wake up.why when it comes to elections it’s always confusion u av just to vote for candidates u think are right

  38. just comment

    you saying akabwelelo kalalya to justify your hatred for Kalu. But remember Herve Renard left and came back just to lift the cup.

    • Bauze

      Bauze! these misusers of Bemba wisdom
      Even Zinedine Zidane is back and Madrid are top of the table!

  39. Joseph

    If both Kalu and Kamanga have personal differences let them put them aside. I would prefer both and others stand let electorates vote. Who is afraid of who. Don’t manufacture rules to target opponents.

  40. Simwanza Wilfred

    Don’t think when we are quiet we can not select bad from worse. Let Kalusha stand as a FAZ P. He is just like any other person with full of mistakes. He has learnt so much that he won’t repeat the same mistakes. But for you Kamanga standby with respect and you will be also remembered instead of you taking our team bad to worst. Looking at current status we are no longer the team used to be.

  41. Carlos

    People don’t behave like dogs..to eat what it has vomited. Why can’t you switch forward your mind do you still believe in the past .Don’t let the past ruin your future. he did his part …can you workup my fellow Zambians .kalu for how

  42. Carlos

  43. P.M

    Kalu please let it go. You had God given chance to make something out of your footballing talent. You spend all your earnings on white prostutes. Look at your friends like Eto, Dragoba. Just to mention a few, they have established businesses and build mansions in their home countries. Even our own Chris Katongo has built himself a mansion. What do you to show for all the earnings you accumulated over the years…NOTHING. Now you want to loot FAZ!! Shame on you.

  44. Jms

    ZAMBIANS ARE POLITE REGARDED BEFORE AND WE HAVE A POLITE CANDIDATE ON THE LINE MAY GOD BLESS NOT UNPOLITE ONES,AND ZAMBIANS WAKE UP, A DAD PERSON IS KNOWN THROUGH APPEARING IN COURTS ARGUMENTS ETC ,BOLA PASHI ,BALETE-LETE.

  45. Fyantha

    Was he given chance to re write that integrity test?

    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  46. Collins

    Yama ba kalu,hmmm try something new …..

  47. jizzo xris

    for the sake of zambians jst let kalu stand then let the voters decide

  48. John Phiri

    Does it mean that Kalusha Bwalya has nothing else to do rather than football???? He can do other things, its never late. He can even become a pastor looking at his advanced age now.

  49. wise one
