Zifa property sold

HARARE - Property belonging to the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) including the artificial turf which was donated by Fifa went under the hammer in Harare yesterday.

The artificial turf was part of the Zifa property attached by the Deputy Sheriff over a debt owed to former communications manager Nicky Dhlamini-Moyo, who was sacked under unclear circumstances in 2012.

Other Zifa property which was also auctioned at the Reliance Auction yesterday includes a tractor, and office furniture.

The total estimated value of goods sold is $126 300 which could have covered all her dues owed by the association.

After her dismissal, Dhlamini-Moyo approached the Labour Court which ruled in her favour and ordered Zifa to pay her $10 000 compensation.

Zifa, however, ignored the order to pay Dhlamini-Moyo and the compensation package rose to $100 000.

The former Zifa communications officer was then granted writs of execution by the High Court to attach the association's property last year.

Her case is not the only one affecting Zifa as they have a lot of outstanding debts owed to many former employees, who have been granted writs of execution by the High Court.

In the coming months bailiffs will be knocking on the cash-strapped association's doors to attach more property.
