Saturday Zifa poll to decide Dube fate

FIFTY eight councillors will on Saturday decide on who shall lead Zimbabwe’s glory starved football when they cast their votes in the Zifa board elections in Harare.
To be contested for are four board member positions, vice-president posts and the top post of Zifa presidency.
Incumbent president Cuthbert Dube is seeking re-election and will battle it out with Nigel Munyati who worked with him in the outgoing board in the marketing portfolio.
Former Zifa chairman Trevor Carelse-Juul is seeking a return to the helm of Zimbabwean football after more than two decades off the radar.
Completing the four-man contest for presidency is Harare City chairman Lesley Gwindi who lost to Dube in the 2010 elections that thrust the latter into power.
Dube has admitted that the last four years were turbulent and is seeking re-election to finish his work at the association.
“I still have a job to finish and leave a lasting legacy at Zifa,” he said.
“We have started some projects that need to be completed and that has motivated me to seek re-election. By the end of the next four years I am sure the game in this country would be on another level.”
Elkanah Dube and player agent Omega Sibanda are contesting for the vice-president post.
Gladmore Muzambi, Bernard Gwarada, John Phiri, Fungai Chihuri and Tavengwa Hara are vying to sit on the board.
Saturday will certainly be a big day that will shape the destiny of Zimbabwean football.Advertisement
