Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) President Felton Kamambo will this week appear in court on alleged bribery charges, Sunday News reports. Kamambo according to the publication was served with summons by the National Prosecuting Authority to avail himself at Rotten Row Court on Tuesday 25 August, to answer the bribery charges.
The development was confirmed by Chenaimoyo Gumiro the ZIFA lawyer who is also representing Kamambo in the case. Gumiro said:
I confirm that he (Kamambo) was served with the summons to appear for trial on 25 August to face bribery charges. We are yet to be furnished with the State papers, we have made several attempts but to no avail.
All we know for now is that the allegations herein are the same allegations he was charged with and prosecution was declined by the National Prosecuting Authority. So, we are yet to know from the state papers what has changed from the previous position taken by the state.
The president has no case at all, it takes two to commit an offence of bribery, so someone has to come and confess he committed an offence
Meanwhile, some councillors accused of taking bribes to vote for Kamambo in the election that ushered him into the office ahead of former ZIFA president Philip Chiyangwa are also appearing in court on the same day with Kamambo.
