Zambia to vote for Sheikh Salman in the hotly contested FIFA Elections

Zambia will not depart from the CAF resolution that seeks African representative to vote for Bahrain billionaire Sheikh Salman Bin Ebrahim Al-Khalifa.

FAZ Secretary General George Kasengele has announced that Zambia will vote the middle east tycoon.

FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya, committee member Pivoty Simwanza and Kasengele left the country yesterday to attend the congress that will replace banned and disgraced Sepp Blatter.

There are claims that lobbyists have already offered and transmitted grants to national associations to vote for the Bahrain man, but his team strenuously denied the allegations

“We are part of the African Football family under CAF and we shall follow what the continental mother body has advised. CAF has taken a stance and as you may know our President( Kalusha Bwalya) is an Executive Committee Member there, we would not want to appear to be at variance with our leaders,” Kasengele is quoted.

The three man Zambian delegation is expected to return home next week where it will swing back to share with councillors proceeds from Bahrain. The FIFA election will be held on Friday.
