ZIFA might be facing the wrath of the COSAFA president whom they want removed from his post as part of the latter body’s AGM agenda Newsday reports. ZIFA members currently in South Africa were, today humiliated at the AGM. COSAFA reportedly banned ZIFA from attending the AGM but ZIFA in defiant showed up at the AGM today.
According to the publication, ZIFA, a few days ago, received their invites to the COSAFA AGM and the invites came together with financial reports and the agenda. On receipt of the agenda and the financial reports, ZIFA reportedly saw some anomalies and questioned COSAFA about it and asked the body to add the removal of Chiyangwa as the COSAFA president on the agenda.
According to the publication:
Zifa wrote back instantly, with Mamutse questioning a number of issues in the financials which he proposed to be included on the agenda. He queried the huge amounts of money that had been given to Chiyangwa as allowances last year, amounting to almost R1 million.
The allowances to Chiyangwa, and other Cosafa executive committee members, which amounted to over R1,5 million, were paid at a time the body made a R2 million loss.
Zifa also insisted that their proposal to have Chiyangwa dismissed as president of Cosafa be included as an issue for consideration on the agenda at the general assembly, “on the basis of the transgressions committed by him in destabilising the due administration of football in Zimbabwe
COSAFA responded by banning ZIFA from attending the AGM due to a debt that they had already invoiced FIFA to pay on ZIFA’s behalf.
