THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) Appeals Committee has given Nkana Football Club treasurer Alex Munasha till Monday to present the 2012 identity card issued by the soccer body to prove that he has been at the helm of administration for four years and therefore qualifies to contest the FAZ treasurer’s position on March 19.
Munasha appealed to the Appeals Committee after the Legal Committee disqualified him from contesting the FAZ treasurer’s post, saying that he has served for less than four years at Nkana.
The Nkana treasurer based his appeal on Article 26.7 (ii0 of the FAZ constitution which states that candidates for the office of treasurer shall be Zambians with at least four years’ experience in football administration in full executive capacity at member club and/or member association level and has an accounting qualification.
The Appeals Committee chaired by Judge Martin Musaluke asked Munasha to provide his registration form stamped by FAZ for 2012.
Before the committee arrived on the decision, they contacted Munasha who said that the 2012 card was either misplaced or lost and he could not find it.
Munasha’s failure to present the stamped 2012 registration form could see incumbent Rix Mweemba go through unopposed.
Meanwhile, the Appeals Committee also upheld the decision made by the Legal Committee to disqualify Nkwazi Football Club’s Adrian Kashala and James Mpoma from filing their nomination for the position of committee member as per Article (26) (6) (5) of the FAZ constitution.
Article 26.6 (v) states that each member association or club shall not have more than one of its members elected to the FAZ executive committee.
“The purpose of clause (26) (6) (5) of FAZ constitution is to broaden the participation of member representation of FAZ so that not more than one person come from one club,” the Appeals Committee chairperson said.
The FAZ elective AGM is set for Moba hotel in Kitwe on March 19.
