The association told Highlanders on Thursday that it was improper for them to hold elections before the finalisation of the suspended Peter Dube matter which is on the ZIFA AGM whose date is still to be concluded.
Here is ZIFA’s full statement:
The Zimbabwe Football Association advises the football fraternity and the nation at large that following a consultative meeting between the ZIFA president Dr Phillip Chiyangwa and Premier Soccer League Emergency Committee Acting Chairman Mr Kenny Mubaiwa on Friday 5 January 2018, the position regarding the staging of the Highlanders 2018 elections has been clarified and the Association has authorised Highlanders FC to proceed with the elections as scheduled.
ZIFA also wishes Mr Peter Dube the all the best on his retirement and the Association will without doubt consider him for future football administration assignments.
DR PHILLIP CHIYANGWA
