Former ZIFA president Philip Chiyangwa will remain at the helm of COSAFA despite losing the ZIFA Presidential election at the weekend.

Chiyangwa lost Sunday’s election to Felton Kamambo ending his three year reign.

In a statement Cosafa said :

The Council of Southern African Football Associations (COSAFA) would like to confirm that Dr Phillip Chiyangwa remains president of the organization despite relinquishing his position with the Zimbabwe Football Association.

After numerous media enquiries, COSAFA can assure member associations that there is nothing in the organization’s constitution that states the president must also hold office with their home football association.
