FAZ Elections: I am coming to add value – Mumba
Newly elected FAZ vice president Justin Mumba says he believes his strengths will complement an Andrew Kamanga presidency.
Speaking in the aftermath of his election as FAZ vice president, Mumba said his stint at Zesco United where he served as Chief Executive Officer had given him enough insight to target higher goals.
“I thought I had done enough at club level; I was inspired by the policies of Mr Kamanga. I thought that I could go to the association and add value and help him steer his football dream,” said Mumba.
“I am coming to serve at the FA and add value. My father once told me that let your works speak for itself, so I go to the association I am going to add value.”
Mumba marshalled 55 votes with his closest rival Gideon Mwenya getting 31 votes. The no show Longa Mandona received zero votes while Dr Joseph Mulenga and Henschel Chitembeya withdrew from the race.
In the race for the female candidacy Colonel Priscilla Katoba cantered away with 67 votes while Brenda Kunda got seven. In third place was Hilda Mutamgama with six votes while Nellie Miamba got five with Kunda Bowa receiving two.
Kamanga will be deputized by Justin Mumba while Colonel Priscilla Katoba was elected as women candidate.
The rest of the executive committee members are Jordan Maliti, Mwansa Kapyanga, Chisanga Pule, David Simwinga, Crispin Kamuna, Arthur Kamulosu, Patrick Ndhlovu, Collins Mukwala, Francis Hafwiti and Mweemba Mujala.
Under the FIFA aligned FAZ constitution each of the 10 provinces is represented by its chairperson on the national executive committee.
