ZIFA Councillors To Hold EGM Despite Opposition From FIFA

ZIFA Councillors To Hold EGM Despite Opposition From FIFA

ZIFA councillors have vowed to proceed with the extraordinary general meeting (EGM) set for despite FIFA warning that ZIFA ban will only be lifted when the Felton Kamambo-led board has been reinstated to run the country’s football.

FIFA also said it won’t recognise the forthcoming ZIFA EGM’s outcome. FIFA said Thursday:

As discussed in the past weeks, it is important that in the context of the aforementioned EGM, the ZIFA members and delegates understand fully the decision of the FIFA Council taken on February 24, 2022.
Especially, they shall be reminded of the cumulative conditions imposed by FIFA Council in order for the ZIFA suspension to be lifted, including ‘confirmation to FIFA that ZIFA and its management led by president Felton Kamambo and general secretary Joseph Mamutse is back under their full and unconditional control.

In response to the letter, ZIFA councillors said they will go ahead and host the EGM  sponsored by the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) will go ahead as planned. Said the councillors:

We have taken note of the email being circulated by the suspended ZIFA CEO. Mr Joseph Mamutse. purportedly emanating from FIFA.

The contents therein are noted.

Firstly, we note that the email constitutes a departure from the norm in that it is not on the official FIFA letterhead for authentication. We further note that it’s addressed to Sirs and we take this to refer to Messrs Kamambo and Mamutse and no one else in particular, in pursuant to their previous discussions (with FIFA) notwithstanding bail conditions being faced by Mr Kamambo.

The letter does not in any way opine that the scheduled EGM be cancelled, neither does it declare the EGM unlawful. It reiterates the conditions for reinstatement to FIFA, which are already in the public domain and largely a matter between FIFA and the Government through Sport and Recreation Commission.

Apart from that we will not speculate on reasons, why then the said email would have been shared with the generality of all stakeholders. as this seem to be a private discussion between the parties.

As such the EGM is proceeding as advised. The said EGM is convened in accordance with the ZIFA constitution. The ZIFA assembly remain the supreme authority in as far as ZIFA issues are concerned.

We shall engage with FIFA at the appropriate time so as to ensure that a common ground is attained between the parties.

Guys FIFA is not Luke Malaba. You are not going to win this war. Zvasiyana ne SADC inoita side with you. The earliest you become sober minded the better. Most of ZIFA councillors you are business people who do not make a living out of soccer but you are disadvantaging the players. We supporters of football know who is using you.
