Former Nkana FC’s Congolese striker Walter Bwalya Binene denies switching allegiance to Zambia.

“The Zambian FA approached me to change my nationality by giving me a position in their national team given my prowess in their elite league in which I emerged top scorer,best centre-forward,best player in the league etc.”

“Indeed I had spoken with my family in the country (Zambia) especially my father and he was against me becoming a Zambian and giving up my homeland which is Congo”

  1. I don’t think FAZ approached him, may be some fan lunatic posing as an official. In the Zambian Constitution or that for FAZ, there is no provision for players change of nationality on the basis of number of goals scored. I dont believe that the country or FAZ has become so disparate.
