Soccer Legend Kalusha Bwalya insist he is still in the CAF race as he tells FAZ President Andrew Kamanga to concentrate on local football.

“The nomination has to come from the national association. We are still waiting. I haven’t heard nothing,” the former KK11 captain said

“This nomination we have been waiting everybody is in the race. We have called for the executive committee meeting.

“I have decided to write to the executive committee. Everybody is in the race. There s a few days but we are in the race.

In reference to Zambia’s failure to qualify to the last two editions of the African Cup of Nations, Kalusha took a dig out off Kamanga.

“If you look at football in Zambia today it would have been better as an incumbent if Kalusha remains in CAF, Andrew [Kamanga executive] concentrates on winning games on local level, their hands are full.

FAZ has insisted that Kalusha should undergo an integrity test before he is granted his wish of the going to the ballot between himself and Kamanga for the FAZ exevutive commitee nomination vote.

The deadline for submission is 31st May.

The ZamFoot Crew can exclusively reveal that Kamanga called an Executive committee emergency meeting but the CAF nomination issue was not brought up .

Kamanga defeated Kalusha at Kitwe’s Moba hotel three years ago to become FAZ President.


  1. I think Kalusha should just pack his bags and go back to South Africa, as Zambia we should not lose a chance to have one of our own to successfully run for the CAF position because mind you it does not mean that after the FA nominations are done then it becomes automatic that that person will take the position, no, at CAF their will be elections and even the name forwarded for elections will again be subjected to integrity tests, it would be foolish for Zambia to send someone who will most probably fail the test at CAF hence from the onset let us select one without blemish, one who is not tainted lest we lose our chance at being nationally represented, let us do the right thing from the beginning.

  2. Kalusha thought this day was not going to come, if he knew he would have made peace with Kamanga a long time ago instead of continuing to cause factions within FAZ though his cronies.

  3. Kalusha’ s attitude is one that baffles me being an icon does not mean him not humbling himself to Kamanga and FAZ leadership from the time he lost favor with affiliates of the local soccer body! There is something about his surrounding airs that makes one feel because of his past achievements he has entitlement to whatever he demands. Had he maintained a cordial relationship with Kamanga from the onset the situation wouldn’t have gotten to where it is now. He is the invisible hand in Kamanga’s woes to managing the sport in Zambia. The desperation with him is self inflicted he better just go!

  4. Kali is a useless corrupt creature. He has been given enough opportunities which he messed up. You have to give a chance to other people. Go and find something else to do.
