The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) has suspended the executive board of the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) with immediate effect.

The SRC chairman Gerald Mlotshwa announced the development on Tuesday, citing gross incompetence by the FA.

The board is led by Felton Kamambo, who has been fighting corruption charges in court.

The suspension comes months before the association holds its elective congress.

The polls are set to happen in March 2022.

An interim committee will be appointed by the Minister of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation.
