Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) president Felton Kamambo has dismissed claims that the association diverted funds from well-wishers meant for Warriors’ supporters.
There were reports on Wednesday insinuating that a businessman, Kuda Tagwirei donated funds for 40 fans to travel to Egypt, with ZIFA officials giving the money to friends and relatives.
Kamambo told 263Chat that nothing of that sort ever happened. He said:

Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -
As Zifa, we never got money from anyone meant to fly the supporters to Egypt.
I have heard a number of accusations people saying we got money from well-wishers, the money we got ranging from the President’s donation on the night of the dinner, went straight to the fundraising committee.
As Zifa we never and will never handle any cent from the donated money. All we are doing is to tell the committee to pay for whatever we want paid for.
Kamambo said that the association is running around to ensure that a section of supporters travels to Egypt to cheer the Warriors.
