Chomba tips boxing administrators

FORMER Zambia Boxing Federation (ZBF) general secretary Bright Chomba says people that want to contest next month’s elections should put the sport above personal gain.
Chomba said in an interview yesterday that the tendency by some people to believe they are the only ones that can lead ZBF should come to an end.
“This thing of saying it can only be me who can be there is bad. It’s killing the sport because you will find that some clubs will start refusing to release their boxers for national duties because they are not in good books with the ZBF executive.
“The honorable thing to do when people raise issues is to say I have done my part; let others also come and move forward. Otherwise this tendency of wanting to be there always is killing the sport and in the end it’s boxers who are affected,” he said.
And Chomba is considering contesting the position of general secretary at the February 27 elective annual general meeting set for Kabwe.
He said councillors have asked him to contest.
“Councillors have been approaching me, requesting me to contest for the same position I held. I can’t decide on my own, so I have to listen to what the councillors are saying,” Chomba said.
Meanwhile, ZBF vice-president Kennedy Mubita says he will only announce the position he will contest for after the extra-ordinary annual general meeting in Kabwe this Saturday.
“It is premature for me at this stage to announce which position I will contest because there is a pending petition. Affiliates have called for an extra-ordinary AGM this Saturday, so let us wait for the outcome of that meeting,” he said.
