Lincoln Mutasa will continue leading the ZIFA Normalisation Committee (NC) until January 2025.

The committee’s original mandate ended on June 30, but FIFA has decided to extend it, allowing the Mutasa-led administration to establish a roadmap for elections to form a new ZIFA board.

In a statement, ZIFA confirmed FIFA’s decision: “Reference is made to the decision of the Bureau of the FIFA Council (hereinafter: the Bureau) of 10 July 2023 to appoint a normalisation committee at ZIFA as well as the decision of the Bureau of 28 June 2024 to extend the mandate of the said committee until 31 January 2025 at the latest.”

The statement also highlighted the Bureau’s authority to adjust the composition of the NC: “According to the decision taken by the Bureau on 10 July 2023, the FIFA administration, in consultation with CAF, reserves the right to dismiss any of the members of the normalisation committee and/or to appoint further members at any time.

Lincoln Mutasa Retains Chairmanship As FIFA Extends Normalisation Committee’s Tenure

FIFA has extended Lincoln Mutasa’s tenure as Zifa committee chairman until January 31, 2025, at the latest.

The extended tenure means that Ms. Cynthia Malaba and Mr. Sikhumbuzo Ndebele will no longer serve on the NC. ZIFA expressed gratitude for their service: “Consequently, please take note that the mandates of Ms Cynthia Malaba and Mr Sikhumbuzo Ndebele ended on 30 June 2024. The Normalisation Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank these two members for their dedicated service and commitment since their appointment by FIFA.”

This extension by FIFA underscores the ongoing efforts to stabilize and reform Zimbabwean football governance, providing the necessary time to ensure a transparent and effective electoral process for the new ZIFA board.
