NSCZ summons 4 more associations

ROBINSON KUNDA, Lusaka
THE National Sports Council of Zambia (NSCZ) has summoned four more associations to appear before the disciplinary committee on Saturday in Kabwe.
The four associations that have been called alongside the Zambia Boxing Federation (ZBF) are Handball Association of Zambia (HAZ), Hockey Federation of Zambia (HFZ), Zambia Volleyball Association (ZAVA) and Zambia Bowling Association (ZBA).
NSCZ acting general secretary Emmanuel Chitembo said in Lusaka yesterday that the associations will appear before the Michael Chiti-led disciplinary committee in connection with various shortcomings that have come to the attention of the motherbody.
Chitembo said ZAVA has been called because NSCZ wants to hear how far it has gone in dismantling the undisclosed debts it accumulated when it hosted the Zone Six Championship in 2014.
“ZAVA promised to settle those debts but it’s like they have not done so. We just want to interact and find out what they are doing about it and how far they have gone,” he said.
On ZBA, Chitembo said NSCZ gave the association K130,000 during the Africa Bowls Championship at Lusaka Club last September but the organisation accumulated a further K70,000 which they want the council to pay.
He said ZHF have been summoned because they failed to clear players that came in the country for the Africa Cup Club Championship at Olympic Youth Development Centre in Lusaka.
“The procedure is that when you bring in athletes, you are supposed to clear them with NSCZ but the Zambia Hockey Federation did not do so.
“We gave them time and we were hoping that they would come back to us immediately after the tournament but it’s now over two weeks and they have not come back,” Chitembo said.
He said HAZ will appear in connection with a case that arose within the executive.
Chitembo also said the Midlands Amateur Boxing Association and Copperbelt Amateur Boxing Association acted within the law to submit their petition for the removal of their president Thomas Chileshe to the NSCZ secretariat.
The ZBF executive argued that it would not appear before the NSCZ disciplinary committee because the petitioners did not follow procedure.
