Zifa is yet to pay former Warriors coach Kallisto Pasuwa what it owes him. The association reportedly owes Pasuwa nine months unpaid salary (US$63 000), a signing on fee (US$15 000) and an Afcon qualification bonus (US$20 000). Pasuwa also used his own money on fuel and the coach expects a refund on this. Pasuwa has returned the official vehicle he was using after his tenure ended on February 28.
Speaking to SportsZone Pasuwa’s manager Gibson Mahachi, said they were waiting to hear from ZIFA. Said Mahachi:
The coach has served his notice period, he returned the car and we are now waiting to hear from ZIFA. However, I do not think this is an issue that we can worry about. Everything is under control for now.
ZIFA board member (finance) Philemon Machana said the football association was committed to paying Pasuwa but only after thorough reconciliation of the figures. Said Machana:
The intention to pay his dues is always there but we are still doing some reconciliation and computing all the figures. Once everything is done we will sit down with Pasuwa and agree on the outstanding figures.
