Phillip Chiyangwa takes aim at Cuthbert Dube over ZIFA debt

Posted by Maveriq

Businessman and ZIFA President Phillip Chiyangwa wants Cuthbert Dube, previous president of ZIFA, to account for the association’s debt.  The Chiyangwa led executive is alleging that there were underhand dealings at ZIFA during Dube’s reign.

Chiyangwa’s executive wrote to Dube’s executive saying:

Zifa is in correspondence with the previous Zifa regime which was led by . . . Dube, demanding written responses from the former Zifa executive committee members regarding findings of a commission of inquiry conducted in 2015.

Following the commission of inquiry into the state of football at the behest of the Sport and Recreation Commission (SRC), the Dube-led executive committee and its head of secretariat, Jonathan Mashingaidze is obligated to respond to the commission’s findings.

The commission’s findings were forwarded to the former administrators but they have not yet responded to issues that require their immediate attention.

Dube and fellow executive committee members, Twine Phiri, Fungai Chihuri and John Phiri; together with former Chief Executive Officer Mashingaidze are all obliged to explain their part in the accumulation of the US$7 million debt in writing to the SRC within the next seven (7) days.

Ndumiso Gumede, Miriam Sibanda, Elizabeth Langa and Brig. Elliot Kasu (Retired) served under Dube at some point and they are also compelled to respond to the commission’s findings sent to them three weeks ago.

There were alleged shady transactions that were entered into during the period when the individuals concerned were in positions of authority at Zifa, thus they are answerable for all the financial misnomers raised by the commission of inquiry.

The previous leadership is also obliged to shed light on alleged deviation from defined organisational policies, explaining why policies were not implemented or adhered to.

Failure to take heed to the final demand for detailed responses to the commission of inquiry’s findings will attract punitive measures from the Zifa executive committee
