๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ผ๐Ÿ“ Zimbabwe FA responds to bribery claims

The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) have rebuffed reports of President Felton Kamambo being wanted police suspect for bribery actions.

Following the publication of the story that Kamambo is on the run from 28 counts of bribery, ZIFA were quick to release an official statement to rubbish the claims.

The FA assured the public that the allegations are purely malicious and unfounded. “The Zimbabwe Football Association has learnt with dismay falsehoods being circulated by one discredited social media blogger alleging that our president Felton Kamambo is on the run or has been detained by the police CCU,” ZIFA wrote.

“While we usually ignore such falsehoods, the Association has felt it important to calm nerves on the many multitudes and genuine stakeholders in football by correcting this mischievous statement.

ZIFA further revealed having contact with the police force wherein the it was confirmed they do not have any case against the president.

“ZIFA would like to inform the nation that Mr Kamambo is neither on the run, detained nor is he being sought after by the police. ZIFA lawyers were this morning at Harare central police where they met top police leadership with regards to the bribery allegations.

“While we confirm that a separate police department has indicated willingness to re-interview Mr Kamambo on alleged bribery allegations reported by Mr Chiyangwa who lost the Zifa elections to the incumbent, we also would like the public to know that indeed Mr Kamambo had previously been investigated and cleared on the same election bribery charges.

“ZIFA would like to allay any fears that football will be in a limbo as a result of these issues and believes that in the fullness of time all shall be laid bare,” the statement concluded.
