The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has suspended Indeni Football Club Head Coach Mwenya Chipepo indefinitely for his unsavoury comments in the aftermath of his side’s 13th June 2021 league clash against Forest Rangers which ended 0-0.
FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala said that Mwenya will not be allowed to sit on the bench until the disciplinary process has been concluded.
Kashala said that According to a suspension letter addressed to Indeni Football Club from FAZ, Chipepo will not be expected to sit on the bench until the matter is conclusively adjudicated on.
“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,” he said.
He said Chipepo has been given up to Wednesday June 23, 2021 to formally respond to the charges against him.
Kashala said that the Head Coach is suspended from performing his functions until the matter is conclusively adjudicated on by the relevant judicial bodies.
And FAZ Chief Executive Officer said that officials have repeatedly been warned about airing grievances through established channels.
This contained in a statement issued by FAZ Communication Manager Sydney Mungala.
