Former Warriors captain Benjani Mwaruwari has announced that he will challenge current Zifa president Philip Chiyangwa at next year’s elections.
Yes, I’m gearing up for another challenge and I fear no one. Politics has no place in football and this time I will come better prepared and I can confirm I will be aiming higher by running for the Zifa presidency.
Speaking to Standard, Mwaruwari expressed disappointment in the way football is being run in the country. Said Mwaruwari:
I want to put it on record that I’m disappointed with the way our football is being run. The people who are in power are not serious about developing the sport, instead they only care about themselves. It doesn’t make any sense to have 100 titles in African football yet your own backyard is in shambles.
