Zambia: Lusaka province has successfully held its 2023 FAZ Annual General Meeting (AGM) with over 63 councillors converging for the caucus at New Government Complex in Lusaka. The meeting welcomed old and new councillors, including new representatives from the Women Division One and Division Four leagues.
“You are hereby encouraged to bring on board your grand ideas on how we can develop football in the province and beyond. We remain open to new ideas and reaffirm our commitment to work with everyone, including you, our councillors, government, and our communities, in fostering football development,” FAZ Lusaka province chairperson Jordan Maliti told Councillors.
Lusaka District Commissioner Rosa Zulu, who officiated the event, commended FAZ for doing a commendable job in providing oversight and policy direction to stakeholders.
“Government will continue to support the efforts of FAZ in ensuring that football develops in the country through organised forums such as this one which should be encouraged as they promote good governance and accountability in the administration of the beautiful game of football,” Zulu said.
FAZ president Andrew Kamanga urged the province to unite and come up with solutions that will add value to the development of football in the province and beyond.
“I wish to encourage the provincial executive to double up efforts to ensure that more sponsorships come into the province. We are also happy to report that FAZ has continued to develop sports infrastructure,” Kamanga said.
“We expect that the Lusaka province will be able to make a submission for a sports facility which can be considered under the FIFA Forward project. Currently, we are supporting stadia rehabilitation in Eastern, Northern, Luapula and North-Western provinces; the next set will include Lusaka and the remaining provinces who were not part of the earlier beneficiaries.”
People seemed happy after hearing this news and also showed love and happiness in the comment section of the Football Association of Zambia.
