ZIFA Board 'Ready' To Govern Local Football

ZIFA Board 'Ready' To Govern Local Football

The suspended Felton Kamambo-led Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) board said that it is ready to continue running the affairs of Zimbabwean football after its “vindication” of any wrongdoing by FIFA.

In a statement, ZIFA said they were concerned over FIFA’s threat to ban Zimbabwe from international football after the board was suspended by the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) in November on several allegations that include abuse of funds and sexual harassment of female referees.

ZIFA also said they want their reputation that has been damaged by the serious allegations raised by the SRC, restored. The statement read in part:

The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) executive committee would like to inform the entire nation and football-loving stakeholders that following the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) statement of Dec 21 2021, the board is ready to continue executing its elected mandate to govern football in Zimbabwe till the lapse from of office.

The ZIFA board believes the FIFA decision did among other things, vindicate the ZIFA Executive committee of any wrongdoing contrary to allegations by the SRC in its several publications and given as reasons for them to suspend the board.

The board, therefore, reiterates that as was correctly found by FIFA after its intensive engagements and fact-finding with both ZIFA and SRC in the past 4 weeks, no shred of evidence was found or advanced by the SRC to substantiate their numerous allegations which at best are just a witch hunt, persecution and 3rd party interference under the guise of cleansing football.

To this day, the ZIFA executive committee has been exonerated by several courts in Zimbabwe and most recently by FIFA on these frivolous and malicious allegations from the SRC.

The ZIFA executive committee, therefore, reiterates its commitment for normalcy to return and has no desire for any negative consequences on our football such as banishment of Zimbabwe from football activities but also firmly believes that its reputation which was unfairly tainted by false SRC allegations must be restored.

MR FELTON KAMAMBO HAS DRAGED ME INTO THE SUSPENSION OF ZIFA BOARD BY SRC SAGA.

I WANT TO REGISTER MY SUPPORT FOR THE SUSPENSION OF ZIFA BOARD BY SRC.

IT IS UNFAIR FOR FIFA TO THREATEN SRC WITH BANISHMENT OF ZIMBABWE SOCCER TEAM FROM PARTICIPATING IN FUTURE FIFAl ORGANISED GAMES. ZIFA DOES NOT OPERATE UNDER THE FIFA LAWS, BUT UNDER FIFA REGULATIONS.

THE LAWS OF ZIMBABWE ARE SUPREME. NOONE OPERATES IN THIS COUNTRY INDEPENDENT OF THESE LAWS. FIFA REGULATIONS ARE ENFIRIOR TO OUR LAWS.

OUR LAWS ARE VERY CLEAR ON WHAT TO DO WHERE THERE ARE ALLEGATIONS OF A CRIME HAVING BEEN COMMITTED. IT ALLOWS FOR THE SUSPENSION OF ZIFA BOARD, CALL IN POLICE WHO WILL INVESTIGATE, ARREST AND SEND TO COURT, IF THERE IS EVIDENCE. OUR LAWS PROTECTS ZIFA BOARD TOO BY SAYING IT MUST BE REINSTATED IF THERE IS NO EVIDENCE.

I FULLY SUPPORT SRC IN THE SUSPENSION OF ZIFA BOARD. OUR BEAUTIFUL GAME HAS ALWAYS BEEN GOING DOWN SINCE THE ARRIVAL OF KAMAMBO BOARD.

FIFA MUST AMEND THEIR REGULATIONS. THEIR REGULATIONS ARE NOT SUPERIOR THAN OUR LAWS. IT BOGGLES MY MIND WHY FIFA DID NOT WRITE THEIR THREATS DIRECTLY TO SRC OR OUR GOVERNMENT. DOES IT WANT TO IMPLY THAT ZIFA OPERATES IN A VACUUM ?

IF SUSPENDED, LET IT BE SO, SO THAT WE SORT OUT OUR PROBLEMS WITHOUT INTERFERENCE. OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE BEEN IN THIS BOAT BEFORE US.

SINCE THIS BOARD OF KAMAMBO WAS INSTALLED OUR SENIOR NATIONAL TEAM HAS BEEN LOSING GAMES, ONE AFTER THE OTHER. THERE ARE NO UNDER 20 AND UNDER 23 TEAMS TO TALK ABOUT. NO, ZIFA BOARD MUST GO.

[ GO KAMAMBO GO ]

YOURS SINCERELY
CDE KUFA KWANGU ZVAROVA
[ THE BUSH LAWYER ]

SRC should never reverse its decision. It is better to start afresh than to let Kamambo run ZIFA again. As football fans, we are 120% behind SRC. Zim football is going down. We need new faces.
