THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has indefinitely suspended Indeni Football Club head coach Mwenya Chipepo for his unsavoury comments in the aftermath of his side’s league clash against Forest Rangers which ended 0-0.
According to a statement issued by FAZ Communications manager Sydney Mungala, the coach will not be allowed to sit on the bench until the disciplinary process has been concluded.
This has been communicated in a suspension letter addressed to Indeni Football Club from FAZ.
“The action of your coach is in total contravention of Article 13 (1) a, e, and m of the FAZ Constitution and the Ethics Code. These utterances came barely a fortnight since we issued a circular to clubs to desist from attacking match officials in public,” states the letter from FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala.
Chipepo has been given up to Wednesday June 23, 2021
to formally respond to the charges against him.
“In the meantime, your Head Coach is suspended from performing his functions until this matter is conclusively adjudicated on by the relevant judicial bodies,” Kashala says.
The FAZ chief executive officer says officials have repeatedly been warned about airing grievances through established channels. – FAZ MEDIA
