FORMER City of Lusaka chairperson Ziche Makukula has been angered by the dissolution of his executive by the club’s Board of Trustees saying the move was unconstitutional and breached procedure.
Makukula further expressed his disappointment on how the club’s internal matters were made known to the public by the trustees’ committee which asked that the matters be dealt with internally.
Makukula’s led executive was on Friday night dissolved by the club’s Trustees’ Committee with its chairperson Evelyn Mulundika saying the executive was not working according to expectation.
The Trustees sugar coated the dissolution by calling it a withdrawal of the executive’s extension in office.
But Mulundika said in an interview yesterday that accusation that he was not performing to expectations were ‘false’ as his has done a good job and even helped bringing the team back the Premier Division.
He said the meeting the board had on Friday had agreed that the matters raised be kept internal matter but was shocked that it was leaked to the media but the same people who demanded for it to be kept within.
The aggravated chair said the development was senseless and added that he would only state his position on whether he would recontest the presidency on a later date.
“I am very disappointed with this development. Because we agreed it was going to be an internal matter so taking to the media was more like breaking a code of conduct, I am very disappointed and can only state my position when things are calm,” he said.
Makukula defended himself against the poor performance accusation saying his record of performance was second to none and that some things are not worth fighting for.
“The issue of Club Licensing and preparations for upcoming elections are ongoing and I have not failed to deal with them. Some things are not worth fighting for and I shall leave it to them. I have said time and again that I will not compromise my integrity over City matters.
“I know I shall be vindicated just like I was when they needed a credible person to lead the Club in 2015. The reasons being advanced by the Trustees are false,” he said.
He added that the move by the board was also illegal and unconstitutional and asked what provisions they used to act in such a manner.
Makukula’s term came to an end on December 5 but the elections were pushed to January 20 next year over uncertainties on who qualified to vote at the AGM with the meeting rescheduled to January 20.
But before the meeting, the Trustees pulled the plug on the process and an ad-hoc committee to run the club affairs until elections expected to be named today.
