Chihuri out


EASTERN Region chairman Fungai Chihuri says he will not seek re-election in the upcoming Zifa elections slated for next month.


The veteran administrator, who has served two terms at the helm of the region’s football administration, confirmed the development yesterday to NewsDay Sport saying he believes it’s time to pass on the baton to other aspiring candidates.

“l will not contest in the upcoming elections. I believe it’s time for me to pass on the chairmanship’s post to someone after eight years. I have more than 15 years in football administration.

“Although l will not be contesting in the elections that does not necessary mean l will not be available to add value to football. I would like to wish those who will contest in the elections good luck,” he added.
