Cuthbert Dube quits Zifa

HARARE - Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) president Cuthbert Dube resigned from his post on Friday night ahead of Saturday’s Extraordinary General Meeting which was expected to boot him out.

In a statement on Dube said: “In the interests of football in Zimbabwe and as a true, tried and tested patriot, I have decided to resign as Zifa President.  I shall remain President of Zifa until elections for a new President are held on 5 December 2015.

“The reason for allowing for this transitional period is to ensure that they will not be a vacuum that will exacerbate rather than ameliorate the challenges that the association is facing.  Unlike what has happened in the past I intend, through this process, to ensure that there will be a proper and responsible hand-over/take-over process.

“While I have been a subject of humiliation over the past few years, I will leave office with my head high in view of the Goal Project legacy I have left.  It is common cause that I am the only Zifa President that presided over a Fifa Goal Project and saw it to its completion. 

“A good number of national team assignments would not have been fulfilled without commitment of my personal resources and assets.  I am sure that as the new Board is ushered in at the 5th December Elective Extra-ordinary Congress, the full import of my contribution will be realised.”

Today's EGM will, however, go ahead at the Zifa Village and the councillors are expected revoke the mandate of the rest of the Zifa board.
