Zifa has made a response to accusations by Member of Parliament for Norton Temba Mliswa.
The politician alleges that the officials from the football body stole part of the money meant to fund the national team during their Afcon campaign, causing delays in paying the players’ allowances.
The Warriors threatened not to fulfil the Afcon opener against Egypt on Thursday, and the payment was only made nine hours before the kick-off on Friday.
Zifa says they haven’t received any funds and the association has asked Mliswa to verify his allegations.
ZIFA is yet to receive any funds from the Warriors fundraising committee . As a honourable MP , we expect @TembaMliswa to verify his facts before making unfounded allegations . We reiterate ZIFA has not abused any funds.
