Dube wins re-election

HARARE - Cuthbert Dube was re-elected as the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) president Saturday during a poll held at the Zifa Village.

Dube convincingly beat the challenge of ex-Zifa chairman Trevor David Caresle-Juul by winning the run-off 44 to 14.

In the initial poll, Dube had garnered 34 votes followed by Carelse-Juul with 14 while Leslie Gwindi got 10 votes.

The fourth candidate, Nigel Munyati was humiliated in the poll as he failed to get a single vote.

According to the Zifa constitution, a run-off was necessary as Dube had not won the majority two thirds of the vote required to win the election.

In the second round, Dube got an overwhelming seal of approval from the Zifa electorate when polled 44 of the possible 58 votes.

Its a very sad day for soccer. One would have expected that the voters would have voted for corporate governance , and send a clear message that any one with a tainted name would not be part of us.

We Zimbabweans should mobilise ourselves to stop our soccer being killed by corrupt people like Dube. 44 votes cant devide a game of millions. All football supporters lets boycott going for matches until this man is resigns because our money will be abused.

You dont need the Media or the fans to win a ZIFA election.You need the councilors. Dube has worked with the councilors for a very long time, if the same was done bu Juul to come early he would have surprised Dube, its funny that he was denied the voters roll, these are some of the issues that Sangula was trying to raise and we laughed at him.The councilors are formed/set up using structures that are recommend, although some of the voters don't even know where BF or Rufaro is. If there is any intervention, FIFA will ban us, maybe thats the only route now, otherwise lets just give these guys a chance and see what they will do.44 people have here decided the game followed by millions, such is life.

It doesn't mean if you were voted by 44, they represented us. If they had time to ask us, they would have done the right thing. now go and show what you re made of. there is little finance to squander at zifa. support it with what you robbed us psmas members.
