Explosive Zifa meeting on


An explosive Zifa board emergency meeting takes place tomorrow with the centre of focus on president Cuthbert Dube and his two fellow board members Gift Banda and Patrick Hokonya.

There is one item on the agenda: Corruption in Zimbabwean football.

Banda is the Southern Region chairman while Hokonya heads the Central Region. Both have been implicated by suspended “Asiagate” referee Cosmas Nyoni in match-fixing scandals in the Central Region that involves two clubs Hardbody and Tripple B.

Dube attempted to suspend Banda and Hokonya at the last board meeting to facilitate investigations into the allegations without success.

The Southern Region chairman then asked the president to step aside to facilitate an inquiry into how he (Dube) was elected into office last year.

Dube fought back via a statement yesterday, which did not address the issue of whether he would step aside while investigations go on.

Previously, Dube has been successful in suspending fellow board members without a fight. Second vice-president Kenny Marange, board member (development) Methembe Ndlovu and Northern Region chairman Solomon Mugavazi were suspended because of their alleged involvement in Asiagate.
