CITY of Lusaka Football club chairman Justin Zulu has dismissed City of Lusaka Football Club 2000 PLC general manager Simataa Siamataa’s letter to him, banning him from accessing Woodlands stadium as wrangles continue to hurt the club.

In a letter dated January 26, Simataa directed Zulu to stop accessing Woodlands stadium premises.

But Zulu described Simataa’s directive and letter null and void.

Simataa in his capacity as general manager,  Zulu from accessing Woodlands stadium or any other facilities belonging to the club.

Simataa accused Zulu of engaging in acts against the interest of the club owners. “We write to you ( Justin Zulu) regarding your conduct towards the club’s owners- The City of Lusaka football club 2000 PLC, The board of directors and it’s management staff officials. Your conduct with the redundant executive committee of the club and their continuation of inappropriate acts and behaviour has brought shame to the reputation of the PLC company and the Club,” read Simataa’s letter in part. “We would like to take this opportunity to inform you that the company can no longer allow these acts to continue on the premises. Due to this, effective today January 26, You are prohibited from entering the premises of Vodafone woodlands stadium and other properties belonging to the PLC. You will remain prohibited until such a time that you are notified otherwise.”
Simataa notified Zulu that Club would further deny him application for membership in the absence of a written apology to the Club and the board of directors.

“Furthermore, the board will prohibit any application for membership submitted by yourselves or those associated with the redundant executive committee until such a time that a formal written apology is delivered to the PLC and the board of directors,” read the letter. “Please note that you are being afforded the opportunity to appeal the prohibition which is to be submitted in writing and delivered to myself ( Simataa Simataa). If you wish to make such an appeal please submit by Friday, February 2nd.”

But Zulu, who was speaking on QFM’s Soccer Chart radio programme said Simataa, the man behind the letter was not the general manager of the City of Lusaka 2000 PLC but a consultant of Forli limited.
” The ban is null and void because Simataa Simataa is not the general manager of the City of Lusaka 2000 PLC but a consultant of Forli limited,” he said. “Simataa Simataa was appointed by Forli and not the Board of directors who oversee the Club and am also part of that board and I was not in that meeting neither were many other directors.”
Zulu maintained that he was still the Chairman of the Club and will go to Vodafone Woodlands stadium whenever he pleases.

City of Lusaka club secretary Christopher Chilongo wondered why Simataa chose to mislead himself over the management of the clubs affairs as he was just a consultant engaged by Forli limited.

Chilongo admitted that the continued leadership wrangles at the club had affected its preparation for the next soccer season.

“What do expect when a club has no money to buy quality players before the end of transfer period. We are done but we shall into the division one competition with the available players,” said Chilongo.

He disclosed that City players registered with FAZ by his executive committee were currently training from Copoertaive College ground to avoid any confrontation with Simataa’s led group.

Chilongo further disclosed that the board of directors of City of Lusaka 2000 PLC would soon meet to resolve the matter.

“The nation will soon know the truth of what is happening at City,” said Chilongo.
