FIFA Bans Former African Player of Year Bwalya

Former African footballer of the year Kalusha Bwalya has been banned from football-related activities for two years following an investigation into his links to banned Qatari official Mohammed Bin Hammam. The investigation found that Bwalya had accepted a gift from Bin Hammam, violating FIFA's code of ethics. The Zambian football legend says he will appeal the ruling.
