MULWANDA LUPIYA, Ndola
FORMER Mufulira Wanderers vice-treasurer Tresford Tailoka has called on the resignation of the Kenward Chansa-led executive for allegedly failing to run the legendary side.
Wanderers are winless in three matches and dismissed coach Ahmed Suliman following a spat with the executive and replaced him with Wilson Mwale.
Tailoka said in an interview yesterday that the Chansa-led executive must step down to save the club from further embarrassment.
“What is happening at Wanderers is a disaster. The current executive committee doesn’t have the passion for the team. Most of them do not have the capabilities to manage a team like Wanderers. The only thing which some of those guys who are there must do is to step down and pave way for a new executive with a passion just for the sake of the team.
“The way things are moving will lead into something bad, and to avoid that I think the guys should just step down on moral grounds,” said Tailoka, who was part of the executive that spearheaded Wanderers’ return to the elite league in 2014.
Sponsors Mopani Copper Mines appoint the chairman, secretary and treasurer while the rest of the members are elected.
Wanderers lost dependable players such as Taonga Bwembya (Zanaco), Allan Kamwanga junior (Power Dynamos),Warren Kunda, Progress Kalenga and Robert Mwanza (all Green Eagles).
Strikers Eric Chibuye and Nicholas Kamocha were deemed surplus to requirements and have since trekked to City of Lusaka and Forest Rangers respectively.
