Bid to stop Zifa poll fails, High Court says matter not urgent

HIGH COURT judge Justice Joseph Musakwa on Tuesday dismissed an urgent application put before him by former sports journalist Hope Chizuzu seeking to stop Zifa elections slated for December 5.

Chizuzu last week filed an urgent application with the High court challenging the legality of the Zifa electoral committee saying it was not properly constituted.

Removing the case from the roll of urgent matters Justice Musakwa said Chizuzu hurriedly filed his application such that there was no coherence in its founding affidavits.

“If the applicant has not seen the minutes on the appointment of electoral committee it is not clear why he alleges that it was not appointed by the respondent,” read part of the judgement.

“Irreparable harm founding urgency is not well articulated. The contention that the pending elections might be nullified in future cannot amount to irreparable harm.

“There are other satisfactory remedies available to the applicant. Therefore the matter is removed from the roll of urgent matters.”

Three candidates Philip Chiyangwa, Trevor Carles Juul and former Warriors defender James Takavada are vying for the post of Zifa president while Omega Sibanda and Nicoln Mutasa are battling for the number two position in domestic football along with 10 other candidates eyeing various board member positions.

The elections to choose a new leadership to replace the Cuthbert Dube led board whose mandate was revoked on October 3 have been scheduled for December 5.
