THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has confirmed that the scheduled meeting with FIFA and the aggrieved parties has been postponed to a later date. All the parties including the Honourable Minister of Sports Emmanuel Mulenga, National Sports Council of Zambia (NSCZ) chairperson Patrick Mutimushi and FAZ president Andrew Kamanga were set for the meeting but the aggrieved parties were not available for the engagement.
Following the absence of the aggrieved parties, FIFA Chief Member Veron Mosengo-Omba Associations announced that the meeting had been deferred to a later date.
FIFA had set Tuesday, September 1, 2020 as the date for the resolution of the FAZ wrangles.
Notice of the virtual meeting was sent to all parties on Friday 28 August, 2020 to enable them provide credentials for the access to the meeting.
However, the aggrieved parties demanded for more time before they could be ready for the FIFA mediated meeting.
The meeting was expected to resolve disputes around the contested electoral process.
FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala says FAZ will wait for FIFA to set a fresh date.
