President Mnangagwa advises Zifa.

The two met President Mnangagwa and also thanked him for the critical role he played in setting up, leading and galvanising the Warriors’ fundraising campaign effort. President Mnangagwa donated US$200 000 and pledged a further $300 000 during the fundraising launch in June.

Kamabo and EDZIFA president Felton Kamambo and board member responsible for finance Philemon Machana have formally apologised to President Mnangagwa for the unfortunate events that rocked the Zimbabwe camp during the Warriors’ ill-fated Total Africa Cup of Nations campaign in Egypt in June.

“The Zifa praesidium comprising the Zifa president Felton Kamambo and acting vice-president Phillemon Machana met the President of Zimbabwe, Cde ED Mnangagwa in line with the resolution of the full Zifa executive committee to request for such a meeting.

“The praesidium thanked the President for the critical role he had played in setting up, leading and galvanising the fundraising campaign effort. Zifa is grateful that in spite of the embarrassment that His Excellency Cde ED Mnangagwa may have endured as a result of the unfortunate events during the Africa Cup of Nations, the President of Zimbabwe upon getting a full briefing and apology from the Zifa presidium, accepted such and even jovially and in fatherly-style proffered suggestions on President Mnangagwa how Zifa can better manage the sport and such tournaments going forward,” said Zifa chief executive officer, Joseph Mamutse in a statement yesterday.

The association said it shall forever remain indebted to the “wisdom they got from the State President and wish to inform the nation that the association has already begun implementing the advice which we got from the highest office”.

“In the same vein we wish to inform the nation that His Excellency agreed and authorised the release of part of the residual Felton Kamambo resources from the Afcon fundraising initiatives to service outstanding commitments of the association, namely the Chan and Cosafa women tournaments. We are also grateful to the fundraising committee, especially the committed chairperson Hon Kazembe Kazembe for also supporting this.

“We inform the nation that what is left now is the process of the payments by the relevant organs of the committee directly to beneficiaries as has been the norm,” reads the statement.
