Zimbabwe Football Association Presidents Arrested

Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) president, Felton Kamambo and the deputy president Phillip Machana were arrested on accusations of sending false telephone messages to the former president of the association, Phillip Chiyangwa.

Kamambo and Banda
Kamambo and Machana each showed up in court on charges of breaking the Postal and Telecommunications Act, after sending the “annoying” messages to Phillip Chiyangwa on November, 19.

One of the message believed to have led to the arrests reads:

Ways to make money online

Hie President. You are urged to stop your funny and negative interferences with football meanwhile urgently start accounting for all Zifa money you stole.’

Mrs Victoria Mashamba, a Harare magistrate who was in charge of the case, freed Kamambo and Machana on a $500 bail each, ordering the two to stop sending text messages to Chiyangwa, to continue staying at their given addresses, and not to meddle with the case witnesses.
Kamambo and Machana will be back in court on 9 January, in 2020, and up until the court date, the two are supposed to report once a week at their nearest police stations.
