FAZ president Andrew Kamanga says he fought a good and will not relent in adding value to the game. Kamanga yesterday lost his bid for the Confederation of African Football CAF executive committee member. The FAZ president polled 12 votes against winner Mohamed Samir of Mauritius who received 38, with Eswatini’s Adam Mthetwa polling only two votes.
Zimbabwe’s Fenton Kamambo and Elvis Chetty of Seychelles pulled out of the race. In his message afterwards, Kamanga thanked those that supported his bid.
“We fought a good fight, we continue to sell our idea of transparency,” he said.
The elections were conducted during the CAF ordinary General Assembly held in Cairo yesterday.
Kamanga’s quest for the continental position was not a smooth one having faced a strong contender in his predecessor Kalusha Bwalya.
The next elections to usher in executive members for Southern African Zone will be held in 2021 when the mandates for Danny Jordaan and Eduardo da Costa expire.
