FOOTBALL icon Kalusha Bwalya’s hopes to be on the FAZ ballot paper for the association’s presidency are over.
This follows the Court of Arbitration for Sport’s move to through away his case after Bwalya’s failure to pay K210,000 for the case to go ahead.
CAS finance director Miguel Abelairas last Friday wrote to Bwalya asking him to pay the CHF11,000 that the Football Association of Zambia was supposed to pay within a week failure to which the whole case would be deemed withdrawn.
“I refer to my letter dated 11th March 2020 in which the Court of Arbitration for Sport fixed the advance of costs to be paid by the parties. Please be advised that the Respondent [Bwalya] has not paid its share of the advance of costs,” read the letter in part.
Sources form Bwalya’s camp have told The Mast that the 1998 footballer of the year, has failed to pay the money but could not state the reasons.
“CAS has confirmed that hearing will not take place as the deposit has not been made,” said the source.
