THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has lifted the two-month suspension slapped on three councillors on July 2 for attacking the Andrew Kamanga led executive committee in the media.
The three officials include Damiano Mutale of Damiano Soccer Academy in Mufulira, Kelvin Chipili of Zanama Brave Rovers in Kitwe and a FAZ coordinator for lower league clubs Maximillian Chanda of Kabwe.
FAZ disciplinary committee decided to lift the suspension after reviewing the case last Saturday.
FAZ general secretary Ponga Liwewe said football rules and regulations must be followed to avoid anarchy in the running of the game.
“It is our hope that the trio have learnt lessons from the suspension and would not engage in activities that will bring the association into disrepute. I believe we will be able to solve issues harmoniously and work together to develop the sport,” he said.
Mutale said he was happy that FAZ had lifted the suspension because the councillors were merely offering counsel to the soccer body.
“It is a welcome move. I will continue to support the development of football,” he said.
FAZ on July 2 slapped a two-month suspension on five officials for attacking the soccer body administration and appeared before the Gerald Mweene chaired disciplinary committee.
Bu FAZ could not give the status of the other two officials of Albert Mwansa of Ipusikilo and Grace Gondwe of Mansa.
The officials were prohibited from attacking fellow club officials and members of FAZ through the media.
