FIFA Upholds Zimbabwe Suspension

FIFA Upholds Zimbabwe Suspension

FIFA upheld the suspension of Zimbabwe from international football saying the ban can only be lifted when or if the southern African country has implemented its recommendations.

Zimbabwe was suspended in February 2022 after the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) suspended the ZIFA board headed by Felton Kamambo over alleged maladministration and sexual abuse of female referees.

FIFA said the suspension of the Felton Kamambo-led board constituted government interference with the sport.

The ban on Zimbabwe can only be lifted when the Felton Kamambo-led board has been reinstated, FIFA declared.

An overwhelming 199 over 200 people voted for the upholding of the suspension of Zimbabwe at the FIFA Congress being held in Rwanda.

Meanwhile, SRC has said it did not apply for readmission. SRC board chairman, Gerald Mlotshwa said the commission’s immediate focus remains to oversee the implementation of key reforms which were recommended by the ZIFA Restructuring Committee before any efforts to have the suspension lifted.

The SRC also says they are no longer in a position to legally reinstate Kamambo since he was recalled by the ZIFA Congress in April 2022.
