32 ZIFA Councillors fingered in 2018 ZIFA Election scandal that ushered Felton Kamambo into office will stand before the court on 25 August, the Chronicle reports. The 32 are said to be cooperating with ZRP officers investigating the issue except for 5 councillors from Midlands who have been hostile and reportedly refused to give recorded statements.
A ZRP source that spoke to the publication on condition of anonymity said:
Trial date is August 25, all the papers are ready. We interviewed all, but five councillors in this case. The five from the Midlands were not cooperating, but that’s not a big issue, they will have their day in court.
Kamambo in 2018 got 35 votes against Chiyangwa’s 24 votes, and ZRP has interviewed councillors who were said to have received various sums of money to vote for Kamambo in the elections. Some have already admitted that they accepted the bribes by admitting they got $300 to vote for the current ZIFA president.
