Kalusha Bwalya says his mission is to halt Chipolopolo’s free-fall if he is re-elected as Football Association of Zambia President.
Kalusha on February 6 filed in his nomination in Lusaka ahead of the March 28 elective FAZ annual general meeting at Zambia’s capital city.
He is mounting a comeback 5 years after he was ousted by incumbent Andrew Kamanga who seeking a second term.
Kalusha’s campaign manifesto is pressing on the issue of the Kamanga regimes’ failure to see Chipolopolo qualify for the last 2 successive Africa Cup of Nations, something he believes is an anathema for Zambian football.
“I think the people of Zambia know who Kalusha Bwalya is and where we are coming from. So we are confident that people will dig deep in their hearts to see what we have been able to do for Zambian football,” Kalusha said.
“When some of us travel North, South, East, West of this continent, it is not good what we hear and people have to face that reality we are not where we want to be sorry to say.
“We are already on zero points out of two games points especially in the AFCON which is an emblem for African football; it is yardstick so it will be a tragedy if Zambia misses its’ third consecutive Afcon.”
