Suspended ZIFA Board Asks For FIFA Intervention

Suspended ZIFA Board Asks For FIFA Intervention

The suspended Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) board has appealed to FIFA to intervene in its stand-off with the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC).

The SRC suspended the Felton Kamambo-led board in November last year but in December FIFA ordered that the ZIFA board be reinstated by 3 January 2022.

The SRC ignored the FIFA ultimatum and ZIFA has now written to the world football governing body asking for “guidance”.

Suspended ZIFA secretary-general Joseph Mamutse on Friday wrote to FIFA, informing them that Kamambo was barred from travelling to Cameroon for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals. Reads the letter:

We wish to inform you that our FA president Mr Felton Kamambo was today barred from travelling for a football event he had been officially invited to attend.

We are informed that this was at the insistence of the SRC and a continuation of their interference in our football.

While the FIFA letter has yet not come, our football continues to suffer at the hands of the SRC and we again continue to ask for FIFA’s intervention.

The situation in Zimbabwe is such that football is now being run by the government and this latest act is again proof that the interference continues even long after the expiry of the deadline given by FIFA to the SRC. We wait for your guidance.

Good~Evening Comrades

one thing i've repeatedly pointed out
Zifa is an affiliate of FIFA, TRUE
ZIFA is also an affiliate of SRC

may i remind CAMARA Mamutse that the same FIFA he is writing too on its statues does not allow its member organisations to DIREGARD, DISRESPECT & CHOSE TO IGNORE any such guidlines on sport as may be laid down,in the country of Origin

i mean FIFA can and does not condone acts of governance failure and corruption which,are being levelled against Kamambo and his delegation STOP

so it wont work out because SRC already says is ready and prepared for the outcome from FIFA
3days earlier i even said kuti all the costs against SRC by FIFA shall be recovered from the coffers of those suspended member kusvika mati SORRY

FELTON KAMAMBO'S ZIFA BOARD IS FULL OF HARD HEADED PEOPLE WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT ZIFA BOARD OPERATES UNDER FIFA REGULATIONS WHILE SRC OPERATES UNDER ZIMBABWE LAWS OR STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS.

SRC DID NOT JUST SUSPEND ZIFA BOARD, BUT IT WENT FURTHER AND REPORTED IT TO ZIZI RIRI PANO [ZRP] FOR FRAUD INVOLVING COVID19 FUNDS.

INVESTIGATIONS INVOLVE EXTRA TERRITORIAL INVESTIGATIONS IN EGYPT. WHY DOES KAMAMBO NOT WAIT A BIT LONGER TO GIVE POLICE TIME TO DO THEIR INVESTIGATIONS ?

[FELTON KAMAMBO, CHEST CONTROL. BHORA PASI].

YOURS SINCERELY

Sies iwe Mamutse,instead our football prospects are now looking better without you, Kamambo and your cronies. Look at the way the Warriors were managed at AFCON 2021 even though they didn't do so well in the tourney,look at where our Mighty Warriors are camped for the back to back games against Botswana. Muchiripo imi dai ingori zhowe zhowe vana vachirumwa netsikidzi ku ZIFA village mxxm. Garai kunze ikoko we no longer need your services in our football.
