A sexual harassment incident occurred at the Women’s World Cup.
According to a report by the UK’s ‘Guardian’ on the 5th, Bruce Emwafe (63), coach of the Zambian national team participating in the Women’s World Cup, was seen touching a player’s chest during training on the 28th of last month.
An eyewitness said, “It is not appropriate for a coach to touch a player’s chest. However, he was concerned that there would be a stir in the team, so after the group stage, he formally filed a complaint against coach Emwa Fe to FIFA.”
A FIFA spokesperson said: “We take fraudulent reports seriously. We are currently investigating the contents,” he said. Zambia suffered a series of 0-5 defeats to Japan and Spain. Zambia secured their first win by beating Costa Rica 3-1, but failed to advance to the round of 16 with 1 win and 2 losses.
Even more shocking is that coach Emwa Fe was accused of sexually assaulting female players he coached several times prior to his participation in the World Cup. He threatened the players with the pretext of playing in the starting lineup and slept with them. It is shocking that it includes players under the age of 17 among them.
A female player who requested anonymity said, “When the coach asked for a place to sleep, the player had no choice but to accept. It is a common occurrence in our team.” It is known that not only coach Emwafe, but also various figures in Zambia, including football association officials and referees, were involved in sexual assault cases. Coach Mwafe said, “It has nothing to do with me
. Rumors that I sexually assaulted players are false.”
This is not the first time allegations of sexual assault have surfaced in Zambia. Andrew Kamanga, head of the Zambia Football Federation, said last year that sexual assault was taking place in Zambia when the police and FIFA launched an investigation, saying it had happened in the past.메이저놀이터
The Zambia Football Association is known to have turned a blind eye to coach Emwafe’s crimes when the national team advanced to the World Cup, even though they already knew about the victims of sexual assault by the players. Zambia qualified for the Women’s World Cup finals for the first time this year. Last year, Zambia withdrew from the Africa Cup of Nations due to a sex scandal. /
