Zambia media reports reveal that the Football Association of Zambia president Andrew Kamanga has been appointed by FIFA to the seven-member FIFA audit and compliance committee.
Kamanga was appointed during the 67th FIFA general conference in Manama, Bahrain on Thursday and was recommended to FIFA by Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Ahmad Ahmad.
Meanwhile, it is reported that Kamanga replaces former CAF vice-president Suketu Patel who did not seek re-election at the CAF general assembly in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The FIFA audit and compliance committee is headed by Vesel Tomaz of Slovenia and Kamanga has since confirmed the development to Zambia media.
“I have been elected by the 67th FIFA Congress in Manama to the seven-member FIFA audit and compliance committee for four years after passing FIFA integrity checks,” Kamanga tells the Daily Mail.
“Thanks to CAF president Ahmad for nominating me to represent Africa and FIFA president Gianni Infantino for the confidence shown in my abilities.”
In other appointments, South Africa's Mabaso Koyana Sindi has been appointed as deputy chairperson as well as Hansen Allan of Denmark and Rajesh Patel from Fiji.
Furthermore, the Audit and Compliance Committee is one of the four independent committees of FIFA.
