Aspiring Zifa president Felton Kamambo has refuted allegations that he was given a $100 000 purse by some elements at the Confederation of African Football to dislodge Philip Chiyangwa.
Kamambo who has been fighting tooth and nail to contest in the Zifa elections which were initially slated for 1 December said he doesn’t need money to beat Chiyangwa in an election.
“I don’t need money to beat Chiyangwa, I only need a pen, paper and the Zifa constitution. I can beat Chiyangwa hands down in a free and fair election,” said Kamambo.
“Actually if indeed Chiyangwa had proof that I was given such a big amount, he must have rushed to the Zimbabwe anti-corruption commission like what he did when he tried to smear me with those rape allegations.
“With Chiyangwa the only truth he says about a person is just the name and the rest are fabrications.”
It needed pressure from Fifa for Chiyangwa to reconsider Kamambo, Gift Banda and Mlungisi Moyo to participate in the elections after the trio was initially disqualified.
Kamambo had written to the world football body asking for help to normalise operations in Zifa before the polls as he believes the Electoral Committee has been captured. The former Central Region chairman is also seeking that the elections be moved from 16 December to January 2019.
