ZIFA suspend another football administrator

ZIFA suspend another football administrator

CAPS United board member Lewis Uriri has become the latest football administrator to be suspended by ZIFA.

Uriri was appointed spokesperson of a PSL Emergency Committee yesterday.The Premier Soccer league also resolved to approach to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to bar ZIFA from interfering in the day to day running of  PSL.

A statement from PSL read:

Uriri breached provisions of Article 13 (a) and 31 (i) of the ZIFA constitution by convening an unsanctioned meeting of Premier Soccer League clubs on 29 October 2016.

At the same meeting held at Rainbow Towers, Uriri incited PSL clubs’ representatives to defy a decision on promotion and relegation passed by the ZIFA congress earlier on the same day.

Uriri also breached Article 17 (2) of the ZIFA constitution by urging PSL Clubs to act against a decision passed by the ZIFA congress.

In that vein, Uriri has to immediately relinquish all roles associated with association football in Zimbabwe until the next ZIFA congress.
