Kamambo elected ZIFA President

The Zimbabwe Football Association council elected Felton Kamambo as the Chairperson of the new executive committee for the 2018-2022 term.

Kamambo garnered more votes (35) than incumbent Phillip Chiyangwa who polled only 24. Chiyangwa opted out of the rerun which was necessitated by the fact that neither candidate had amassed two-thirds of the number of votes cast, and the electoral committee declared the former central region chairperson as the ZIFA President for the next four years.

The position of vice president also has a new occupant in Gift Banda who polled 37 votes while incumbent Omega Sibanda got a distant 22.

Phillemon Machana is the only of the incumbents who made it into the new-look executive committee which now also includes Sugar Chagonda, Rodrick Chiwanza, and Bryton Malandule.

Central Region chairperson, Stanley Chapeta missed out on an upgrade to the executive committee, and so did Mlungisi Moyo.

The race for the four executive committee posts was tight at the bottom end where Malandule in fourth and Moyo in sixth were separated by just two votes.

At the apex, Chagonda and Machana were clear favourites with 41 votes each.

Kamambo has been in the football corridors for a where he served in the Central Region executive committee and the national executive committee.
