ZIFA presidential hopeful Lesley Gwindi has made a passionate apology for his damning remarks he made on incumbent Zifa president Cuthbert Dube and the Premier Soccer League.

The apology is one of the conditions set by a Zifa disciplinary committee after it convicted Gwindi of bringing the game of football into disrepute.

He was banned for five years but three suspended on condition he does not commit the same offence in the next five years.

Another year was set aside on condition he pays a fine of US$6 000.

Gwindi late Friday told journalists at a press conference that he regretted his utterances he made while addressing the Bulawayo Press Club last March.

“I would like to apologise for statements that I made. I regret the attention my remarks drew. I never thought they would cause so much damage to whoever they were targeted and elsewhere. I am sorry,” Gwindi said.

However, Gwindi could not shed light on whether he would pay the fine or not.

The apology itself was however a major climb-down for Gwindi whose personality is usually regarded as arrogant.

The Harare City chairman has thrown his name as one of next month’s Zifa board elections candidates and is eyeing the presidency, a post which Dube is seeking retraction.
