ZIFA was suspended last year on allegations of “third party interference”. This was after the Sports and Recreation Commission had suspended the association’s leadership on accusations of corruption, mismanagement of public funds and sexual harassment of female referees. The FIFA Congress being held in Rwanda has voted to uphold the suspension of the Zimbabwe Football Association. The members in attendance voted overwhelmingly 199 in support of the embargo to remain. Why is FIFA controlling all the football federations which little or no room for autonomy?
