Newsday has published fresh details on the Chiyangwa ZIFA embezzlement case. According to the publication the former ZIFA boss used ZIFA’s money to travel with his friends and take trips that were not football related using money from ZIFAcoffers.
Official documents show that Zifa, on May 13, 2017, bought air tickets for Chiyangwa’s friend Chamu Chiwanza and his employee Marshal Jonga for US$3 954 to travel to a Confederation of African Football (Caf) congress in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The two went on to misrepresent themselves as Zifa officials at the meeting.
Payment voucher shows that Zifa paid US$13 986 for air tickets for Chiyangwa for a trip to London, money that the association is trying to reclaim.
Chyingwa has refuted all these claims saying he poured millions on ZIFA to keep the body running during his tenure as president.
