Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) Communications Officer, Xolisani Gwesela, has refuted media reports claiming that the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) has sequestrated Warriors jerseys meant for the AFCON qualifier against Botswana.
In a telephone interview with Soccer24 on Friday morning, Gwesela revealed that the Warriors already have their jerseys for tonight’s game. He said:
ZIMRA did not impound any Warriors kit. Umbro sends various consignments in batches to ZIFA and those consignments are the ones at ZIMRA offices, not the Warriors kit.
- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -
I’m not aware of any impound and the Warriors already have their jerseys for the Botswana game.
On Thursday, a local daily publication reported that ZIFA was desperately trying to get the equipment from Umbro, which they believed should be exempted from paying the duty.
