Kalu seeks second term

By ROBINSON KUNDA
FOOTBALL Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Kalusha Bwalya will recontest the Confederation of African Football (CAF) executive member position.
Kalusha said in an interview from Johannesburg yesterday that he wants to continue contributing to the success of African football.
The 1988 African-footballer-of-the-year said he enjoys massive support from southern Africa and the continent at large.
“Still early days though. As one of the representatives of the Southern region, I have tremendous support from within and across the entire continent. Yes, I will recontest,” Kalusha said.
He is confident of retaining the position during elections set for April 2015.
Kalusha became the first Zambian to be elected on the continental body in 2011.
Other five CAF executive committee members are North Africa representative Terek Bouchamaoui from Tunisia, West African envoy Almamy Kabele Camara of Guinea and Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi who represents West Africa Zone B.
Others are Omari Constant from the Democratic Republic of Congo, who represents Central Africa and Leodegar Tenga of Tanzania, who represents East Africa.
