The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) board chairman, Gerald Mlotshwa, revealed that the commission has written to FIFA seeking the removal from office of the entire Zifa executive committee and replace it with a normalisation committee.
The ZIFA board is currently headed by its president, Felton Kamambo.
In a press statement, Mlotshwa said:
The SRC has of today this 15th August 2019, written to the Secretary-General of Fifa requesting that Fifa invoke Article (8)(2) of the General Provision of the Fifa Statutes to remove from office the entire Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) board and to replace it with a Normalisation Committee. The SRC has reserved its right, in terms of the same correspondence, to act in terms of Section 30 of the SRC Act and suspend the entire board itself.
The letter comes a few days after Zifa imposed life bans on its immediate past president, Phillip Chiyangwa, and his deputy, Omega Sibanda, while board member Chamu Chiwanza was expelled.
The trio is accused of bringing Zimbabwean football into disrepute.
The association also disbanded the Warriors’ technical staff and players with immediate effect saying that the players called up for national duty needed to be patriotic and committed.
