The Zimbabwe Football Association Electoral Committee has given Felton Kamambo the green light to contest against Philip Chiyangwa in the coming ZIFA elections.

Kamambo, an aspiring Zifa president, was disqualified for supposedly being improperly nominated as he is still serving a three-year ban imposed by the association in April.

But the dismissal has been reversed after the Electoral Committee noted some irregularities in their judgement following an appeal early this month.

This was revealed in a letter, signed by the committee chairperson Vusilizwe Vuma, sent to Kamambo on Tuesday where he was also informed that the elections have now been moved to 8 December.

“The Zimbabwe Football Association Electoral Committee has noted that your appeal was not dealt with in accordance with Article 12 subsection 3 of the Electoral code and as such you are eligible to contest in the elections which will now be held on the 8th of November 2018,” reads the letter.

Kamambo had made an appeal on his disqualification which was turned down before he approach FIFA.

Gift Banda who was also disqualified from contesting in the vice-presidency has also been allowed to take part in the polls and will run against Omega Sibanda,.
