Bwalya then a Confederation of African Football (Caf) executive committee member was sanctioned for accepting a gift which violated Fifa’s code of ethics getting two years and $100,900 fine in August 2018.

However, the former Zambian FA boss fine was reduced to $10,090 and given a year ban, a statement read:

“The Fifa Appeal Committee decided to reduce the duration of the ban from taking part in any football-related activity imposed on Mr Bwalya to the period already served at the time of the notification of the present decision.

“As a consequence, the ban imposed on Mr Bwalya ended upon notification of the decision of the Fifa Appeal Committee.”
