The previous day, the British newspaper Guardian reported that coach Mwafe had sexually harassed the Zambian national team during training, including touching a player’s chest.
According to the Guardian report, several players witnessed coach Mwafe touching a player’s chest during training on the 28th, after the second round of the group stage.
Witnesses initially tried to report it to FIFA immediately, but decided to wait for the time being, fearing that the team would be agitated while the tournament was not over.
After Zambia finished 3rd in Group C and failed to advance to the round of 16 after only 1 win and 2 losses in the group stage, witnesses reported to FIFA that manager Mwafe had committed sexual misconduct.
This is not the first time director Mwafe has been accused of sexual misconduct.
everal allegations were raised that coach Mwafe and other coaches sexually abused players.
One player, who requested anonymity, told the Guardian: “When Mwappe wanted to sleep with someone, he had no choice but to agree.
It’s normal for our team for coaches to sleep with players.”
Right before this tournament, the Zambia Football Association conducted an investigation into ‘soccer sex abuse’.
The Zambia Football Association did not disclose the names of those involved, but it is known that it is highly likely that manager Mwafe was involved.
A FIFA official said: “FIFA takes all misconduct very seriously and has established clear procedures for any football official who wishes to report an incident. The contents cannot be disclosed.”
