After a 3-3 draw in a friendly match in Switzerland, Zambia won their World Cup rehearsal against Germany on Friday. But after a few days, the joy had already evaporated.
Serious allegations against the coach of the Zambia women’s national team. According to a report issued byGuardiansUnder investigation against Bruce Mwape. The reason for this must be the suspicion of sexual misconduct.
The Football Association of Zambian FAZ has been in contact with FIFA since September 2022 on the matter. In addition to Mwape, U17 coach Kaluba Kangwa is also under suspicion.
A player, who asked not to be named, told the Guardian: “If he wants to sleep with someone, you have to say yes. It’s normal for him to sleep with our players.”

Why has no player spoken out yet? He said, “They face penalties if they dare to say anything about the incident. The association turns a blind eye because the women did well. It is ugly behind the scenes.”
The Guardian asked Mwape, but he did not receive any statement. Just a nod to the Football Association of Zambian FAZ, who reiterated a statement issued last September: “Although we have not received any formal complaints from anyone regarding these allegations, we take these allegations very seriously and have launched an investigation into the matter.”
The allegations against Mwape currently have no consequences. At the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, he should be on the sidelines. The African team forms a group with Japan, Spain and Costa Rica.
Mwabe and his team stunningly won rehearsal against Germany last Friday 3-2 following their 3-3 draw with Switzerland. (nih/t online)
