FIFA intervenes in Zifa electoral saga

Fifa have intervened in Zifa electoral process after presidential aspirant Felton Kamambo and two other candidates were controversially disqualified from contesting, according to NewsDay.

Kamambo had approached the world football governing body to intervene after he was barred from contesting in the upcoming elections along with Gift Banda and Mlungisi Moyo on the grounds that the trio was serving a suspension.

Fifa through one of their officials, Nodar Akhalkatsi, say they have contacted Zifa to give their side of the story.

“On behalf of the Fifa secretary-general Fatma Samoura, I would like to kindly let you know that we have received your correspondence in relation to the electoral process of the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa).

“As per usual practice in such cases, we have submitted the allegations to Zifa with a request for feedback and are currently evaluating its response,” a brief correspondence by Akhalkatsi reads.

The elections are set for December 1, and as things stand right now, president Philip Chayangwa and his vice Omega Sibanda are set to have another term in office after they were declared unopposed.
