FIFA Bans Zambia’s Kalusha Bwalya for 2 Years

MADRID – Former Zambian player Kalusha Bwalya was banned for two years from any soccer-related activities, FIFA announced on Friday.

Bwalya, member of the executive committee of the Confederation of African Football, was fined 100,000 Swiss francs ($100,600).

“The investigation against Mr. Bwalya was opened on Feb. 28, 2017, and focused principally on benefits that Mr Bwalya had received from Mr (Mohamed) Bin Hammam,” FIFA said in a statement.

Bin Hammam, former president of the Asian Football Confederation, was handed a life-ban by FIFA in 2011 over an alleged payment to FIFA members to support the Qatari bid for hosting the 2022 World Cup.

FIFA’s independent Ethics Committee confirmed it “found Mr Bwalya guilty of having violated art. 16 (Confidentiality) and art. 20 (Offering and accepting gifts and other benefits) of the FIFA Code of Ethics.”

The FIFA statement also confirmed that “the decision was notified to Mr Bwalya today, and the ban comes into force immediately.”

Bwalya was named the best African player in 1988 and was the President of the Football Association of Zambia (2006-2016).
