Sports minister Kirsty Coventry has maintained that Zimbabwe was not in a good position to host the 2019 Cosafa Cup.
This follows after the regional body banned the Warriors from taking part in next year’s senior men edition.
The country pulled out of holding the competition in the last minute, a development which has also attracted a US$200 000 fine. The ban could have been avoided if Zifa had agreed to host the 2020 competition and were supposed to submit their response before June 30.
Posting on Social Media, Coventry says hosting the tournament was never ideal for the country since the offer was too low.
