FOOTBALL Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Kalusha Bwalya says capacity building will remain a cardinal programme for his executive.
Kalusha said this when he closed a one-week FIFA women referees course at Olympic Youth Development Centre in Lusaka yesterday that his executive will do its best to improve Zambian football.
A total of 26 women referees took part in the week-long course that was facilitated by FIFA instructor Gladys Waweru of Kenya.
Kalusha said Zambia has produced world-class referees.
He named Gladys Lengwe, Mercy Zulu and Janny Sikazwe as some of Zambian referees who have excelled at the global level.
Sikazwe is expected to officiate at the under-17 World Cup in Chile while the two women referees will officiate at the All-Africa Games in Congo Brazzaville.
Kalusha advised the participants to maintain the highest levels of discipline.
“At times the situation gets tough and when the situation is tough, your option is just to get tougher,” he said.
The FAZ chief thanked FIFA for choosing Zambia as the fourth country in Africa to benefit from the women referees programme.
And Lengwe, who gave a vote of thanks, pledged to remain committed and uphold professionalism.
