ZAMBIA Volleyball Association (ZAVA) top brass will be challenged at the forthcoming elective annual general meeting (AGM) set for Kabwe on March 29 at Gonde Lodge.
Zambia Army’s Masiye Tembo will be challenging Gabriel Muyinda for the position of president, while Philip Singoyi of Zambia Police Service is eyeing the position of vice-president that is currently held by Berry Lwando.
ZAVA general secretary Charles Haambote said in an interview yesterday that he has so far received only two nominations for the two top positions and that more members were expected to file their nominations as the AGM draws closer.
Haambote also announced that he would re-contest his position during the AGM, becoming the third person after Muyinda and Lwando declared interest in running for another term.
“So far, I am in receipt of nominations for positions of president and vice-president. For president there is Dr Gabriel Muyinda, the incumbent and Lt Col Masiye Tembo from Zambia Army. Vice-president Berry Lwando the incumbent and Mr Philip Singoyi of Lilayi Police College.
I am waiting for the other positions to be challenged,” Haambote said.
