FOOTBALL Association of Zambia (FAZ) presidential candidate Andrew Kamanga says he is capable of leading Zambian football to higher heights.
And suspected Kamanga supporters caused commotion during the Super Division Week 17 double header at Woodlands Stadium in Lusaka on Sunday.
Kamanga said in an interview in Lusaka on Sunday that his candidature is not a personal agenda against FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya but is in the interest of the sport.
The FAZ elective annual general meeting is set for March 2016.
Kamanga also said he meets the requirements needed for one to stand for the FAZ top job.
He said councillors will decide whether he is the right person to replace Kalusha.
Kamanga also appealed to FAZ to stop intimidating people that are campaign for positions.
“My candidature is not a personal agenda especially to FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya. I feel I have what it takes to contribute to the development of the sport in the country.
“My intentions is purely in the interest of developing football, not anything else. I have better ideas to offer to Zambian football, my time has come” he said.
And Kamanga has distanced himself from the group of fans claiming to be his supporters.
“They are soccer fans. They have got their own voice. Fortunately, they don’t vote, so I wouldn’t even make a statement on their behaviour because they are not councillors,” he said.
The fans clad in white T-shirts with Kamanga’s photo blocked the gate near the dressing room so that the FAZ presidential candidate could pass freely.
This happened after the Super Division match between Napsa Stars and Zesco United.
The message on the back of the T-shirt was ‘The real change’ as Kamanga responded by waving back, raising his right hand.
