In an interesting turn of events, the ZIFA Congress has recalled the Felton Kamambo-led executive at an Extraordinary General Meeting held in Harare this Saturday.
Forty five out of the fifty-eight Zifa councillors turned up for the watershed extraordinary meeting, with 43 of them voting to boot out board members Felton Kamambo, Philemon Machana and Brighton Malandule.
The three did not turn up for the meeting that was attended by other board members including Sugar Chagonda, Barbara Chikosi and Farai Jere, who all were spared the boot after responding to their allegations.
The Congress also nullified the suspension of vice president Gift Banda as they prepare to plead with the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) to lift the suspension of the board as ordered by world football governing body, FIFA.
“We have recalled them according to the constitution and we have created a working committee that will write to SRC to have the suspension of the executive lifted, it’s a long road but we are determined to make sure that Zimbabwe participates in the Afcon qualifiers, it’s a process but we are determined, said ZIFA Councillor, Martin Kweza.
It remains to be seen if FIFA will accept this meeting as binding after the world football governing body made it clear that Zimbabwe’s suspension from international football will only be lifted if Kamambo and his colleagues were re-instated.
