FRESH from its nasty battle with Zimbabwe Cricket which resulted in the country being suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) has now turned its attention on the local football governing body, ZIFA.
SRC board chairman Gerald Mlotshwa on Thursday wrote to the world football governing body FIFA’s secretary general Fatma Samoura requesting permission to suspend the Felton Kamambo-led ZIFA board and appoint a normalisation committee.
“The SRC has of today, this 15th August, 2019 written to the Secretary General of FIFA, requesting that FIFA invoke Article (8) (2) of the general provisions of the FIFA statutes to remove from office the entire Zimbabwe Football Association ‘ZIFA’ board and replace it with a Normalisation Committee,” Mlotshwa said in a statement on Thursday evening.
“The SRC has reserved its right, in terms of the same correspondence, to act in terms of Section 30 of the SRC Act and suspend and suspend the entire board itself,” he said.
