FORMER Mighty Mufulira Wanderers player Kalusha Bwalya has been technically knocked out of the race for the forthcoming CAF executive committee elections.
This follows the decision made by the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) to decide who will contest for the position via an integrity test.
What this means is that Kalu has been systematically dealt with by his rival Kamanga.
Kalusha cannot pass an integrity test because he was previously convicted by FIFA on corruption charges.
