Suspended Zifa vice president Gift Banda has vowed to clear his name and expose his superior Felton Kamambo.

Banda was suspended last week on allegations of usurping the powers of the Zifa board and unilaterally made changes to the Warriors technical department which saw Lloyd Mutasa and Rahman Gumbo being replaced with Bongani Mafu and Tonderayi Ndiraya.

A close confidant of Banda told Soccer24 that the legislator is going to issue his side of the story on Wednesday and expose Kamambo for lying.

” For starters that decision to replace the assistant coaches was never fabricated by Banda but was reached by the coach himself after talking to Kamambo. Remember that issue came out in a local daily days before the announcement after Kamambo had leaked it to his friends as a local daily so where does Banda come in there,” said source in the Banda camp.

” What was done is suspending Banda is against the constitution of Zifa and we are going to expose that. After all the brief about national teams have always been on the vice president’s portfolio. Now Kamambo wants to whip in emotions alleging that Philip Chiyangwa is interfering something which is not true. The man made a lot of announcements which are now proving to be hard to put into practice. He promised to have moved the offices but nothing has materialised,”.

Banda who was one of the directors at now defunct Njube Sundowns had run inns with the Cuthbert Dube executive resulting in a ban and fought the Chiyangwa executive last year to be allowed to contest for the vice presidency in which he beat Omega Sibanda to the post.
