Brouwer in $100,000 pay scandal
Zambia's former coach Jan Brouwer
Brouwer is still waiting for the rest of his salary
The Zambian parliament wants the arrest of the Sport's Ministry officials responsible for diverting over $200,000, half of which went to former coach Jan Brouwer.

Sports minister Levison Mumba told parliament that money supposed to be for a Youth Development Fund had been illegally diverted

Mumba said over one billion Kwacha (more than $ 208,000) was misused last year.

Half the money was used to pay Brouwer, and the rest funded Zambia's preparations for the African Nations Cup in Mali.

"Notable expenditure includes payment to the former national coach Mr. Jan Brouwer who was paid 477,600,000 Kwacha (about $100,000)", Mumba said.

Zambian fans will be horrified at the size of Brouwer's wage bill
Tax-payers are losing out
The rest was used to pay players, a travel agent and travel expenses.

The minister told parliament it was wrong for Brouwer to be paid by the ministry because he was an FA employee.

He said he had documents linking top ministry officials to the illegal deal.

Caf ban

Opposition MPs are demanding that the ministry report the matter to the police so that the culprits can be arrested.

The minister did not accuse Brouwer of any wrong doing.

The Dutch coach is still in Zambia waiting to collect his final salary payments.

His contract was cut short after Caf last year handed him a ban, which has since been lifted, for confronting match officials during a Nations Cup qualifier in Madagascar.
