Faz pays Afcon bonuses in full



The Football Association has put out statement saying that players and officials who participated at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea had been paid their prize money amounting to K50million (approximately US$10,000) per person.

Additionally, the statement called on media houses to desist from spreading rumours to the contrary at a time the national team embarked on preparations to defend the Africa Cup of Nations.

The statement released by FAZ Communications Manager Erick Mwanza on Thursday, December 20, 2012 read: “Going to into the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations finals, the Football Association of Zambia would like to inform the football fraternity and nation that players and officials of the 2012 African champion squad have all been paid their prize money bonuses amounting to K50million per person.

“This is in addition to the bonuses players received amounting to about K300million.

”Further, after paying the national team delegation, FAZ proceeded to spread the share of the Africa Cup bonus with payments to all of our 250 club members.

“We therefore would like to stress that some online publication’s malicious concoctions and rumours to the effect that some players haven't been paid their share of the Afcon winning prize are false and should therefore be disregarded with the contempt they deserve.

“Such baseless rumours are in our view the work and futile efforts of irresponsible persons whose interest is clearly inimical to the people’s wishes of seeing our football continue to advance and sustain the highest levels of development and success.

“We shall not be distracted by these falsities as our focus is solely on the defence of our Nations Cup title whose excellent preparations have already commenced.”
