Chiyangwa To Retire From Football Administration

Former Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) president, Philip Chiyangwa, says he will quit football administration when his term of office at COSAFA comes to an end in December this year.

Chiyangwa, who was elected president of the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) in December 2016, also said he is not interested in seeking a return to the ZIFA presidency.

Speaking to The Herald on Thursday, the ZANU PF legislator said he would now concentrate on his political engagements, including leading the fund-raising drive for the party ahead of the 2023 polls. Said Chiyangwa:

I’m not coming back to ZIFA, I’m also not standing for re-election, at the end of my COSAFA (presidential) term, I’m not standing for that one.

I’m leaving, I have a bigger responsibility in my country, here in Zimbabwe, the President (Mnangagwa) has appointed me as one of the chief strategists, for now, and 2023, so I’m in a senior position to determine the life of our party, the fundraising efforts, etc.

For me, it was a good experience (in football administration), you leave for others to take over.

He said by the time he left ZIFA, after withdrawing from the second round of a presidential poll he was trailing to his opponent, and eventual association leader, Felton Kamambo, in December 2018, his race, in the domestic game, had been run.
