The Zimbabwe Football Association ZIFA have decided not to overturn the disqualification of Felton Kamambo and Gift Banda in the race for the presidency and vice presidency of the association, as per reports. There were hopes that the pair would be allowed to run but ZIFA has shut the doors on any hope of the pair competing in the elections.

ZIFA is headed for a return of the incumbent president Philip Chiyangwa and deputy Omega Sibanda when votes are collated and counted on December 1. The challengers were disqualified after the meeting of the electoral committee on Friday to vet candidates. The disqualification means the incumbent would be unopposed at the polls. Despite the push to overturn the disqualification, ZIFA has remained adamant that the ruling stands.
