Zambian Division One League side, Kitwe United have lodged a complaint to the Football Association of Zambia over poor officiating.

The protest comes after United's 1-0 loss last Saturday against Kansanshi Dynamos in Solwezi.

Kansanshi booted Kitwe from the top of the FAZ Division 1, Zone 2 log table after a first half penalty awarded by Chingola referee Louis Macha gifted them the three points.

Kansanshi have 55 points, two above Kitwe after 27 matches and Kitwe boss Gabriel Akayombokwa said the Buchi Boys were aggrieved by the manner in which the penalty was awarded.

“We have lodged a complaint to FAZ over poor officiating. We are also aware that the assistant referee works for Kansanshi Mines,” Akayombokwa said.

There are only three games left to play before the Zone Two season closes as FAZ is yet to make a decision on the complaint.
