The FAZ Appeals Body upholds the Ngonga Penalty

The K20,000 fine and six-month suspension for abusive behavior given by the Disciplinary Committee on Nkana striker ALEX NG’ONGA has been maintained by the Football Association of Zambia’s (FAZ) appeals committee.

The Disciplinary Committee issued a six-month suspension to the Nkana forward on December 11 of last year for his actions during a Week 14 Super League match between Nkana and Power Dynamos.

In order to bring attention to himself, NG’ONGA aggressively tore his shirt in front of shocked spectators and staring television cameras. He then poured his wrath into a SuperSport pitch-side microphone.

The Disciplinary Committee was furious with him for his behavior and gave him a six-month suspension.

NG’ONGA challenged the judgment but was unsuccessful, meaning he is no longer able to play for the rest of the 2022–2023 campaign.

The Disciplinary Committee’s fine, according to FAZ General Secretary ADRIAN KASHALA, is justified because it is the absolute minimum.

KASHLA continued by saying that the committee was aware of the fact that he also needed to fix the microphone for SuperSport.

He mentioned that the committee had decided the K20,000 punishment would be adequate to pay for the equipment should the necessity arise.

He has complimented the Appeals Committee for upholding the long-standing custom of swiftly administering justice.

This is said in a statement provided to ZNBC News in Lusaka by SYDNEY MUNGALA, the FAZ Communications Manager.
