Aspiring Zifa president Felton Kamambo has vowed to appeal against the decision to bar him from contesting in the coming elections.
Kamambo, a former Zifa executive committee member, was disqualified for supposedly being improperly nominated as he is still serving a three-year ban imposed by the association in April. The dismissal means the incumbent president Philip Chiyangwa will go unchallenged in the December 1 poll.
In an interview with The Standard, Kamambo is hoping to take the matter further if his appeal fails.
“I am obviously not happy with this decision and I am going to appeal this decision right away. I cannot fail the integrity test based on mere allegations otherwise no one was supposed to pass that test,” said Kamambo.
“And how can Zifa suspend me over such serious allegations and then not bring me before the disciplinary committee only to bring up the story when I have registered my intention to take part in the elections? I can’t understand why they don’t want me to contest. Maybe, they are afraid I will win.”
Meanwhile, Gift Banda who was going for the vice-presidency and Mlungisi Moyo were also controversially barred from contesting.
The disqualified individuals have four working days to appeal against the electoral committee’s outcome.
