Zambia FA launches investigation into alleged sexual abuse in women’s national team

Published

on

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ), has set up a probe panel to investigate allegations of sexual assault in the women’s national team after several claims by the media citing some players.

The Secretary General of the Federation, Adrian Kashala, who inaugurated the panel on Friday, said its mandate was to unravel the truth behind the allegations that have rocked the country’s women’s game.

In the past few weeks, accusations have been rife on social media with claims that some players of the Shepolopolo were selected to play in the national team after allegedly being asked to give “sexual favours” to unnamed officials in the football association.

“Although at FAZ we have no record of official complaints brought from anyone on the allegations, we consider the allegations very serious and have opened an inquiry into the matter,” Kashala said in a statement.

“We shall collaborate with the Zambia police and other stakeholders in dealing with this matter,” he added.

The statement asked anyone with useful information and evidence of sexual abuse among female national team’s players to report to the association.

“We have since written to the Zambia police to invite anyone with evidence to help with investigations. The nation shall be notified of the outcome of the inquiries once concluded. Until then we shall provide no further comment,” Kashala said.
