Zimbabwe Football Association president Phillip Chiyangwa has been appointed to serve as a member of the Caf U20 Organising Committee.
“This is to confirm that president Chiyangwa is now within the U20 OC Committee of Caf. An official circular will be sent to all MA’s to confirm the changes as soon as possible,” Caf secretary-general Hicham El Amrani wrote in an email to Zifa general secretary Jonathan Mashingaidze.
Chiyangwa expressed his gratitude to Caf for the recognition.
“I am grateful to the Confederation of African Football for believing in me and my abilities, by appointing me to serve as a member in this important Committee,” he told the Association’s official website.
“This is a great honour to Zimbabwean football. I will repay their faith in me with splendid work and will make Zimbabwe proud by executing my duties in an impressive manner,” concluded Chiyangwa.
Chiyangwa was elected into office on December 5, 2015 and has turned fortunes of the association in his short stint as Zifa president. — online
