Zifa mulls Fifa changes

Staff Writer

LOCAL soccer controlling body Zifa is mulling plans to second board members to various committees as it moves to fulfill the road map set by Fifa, it emerged this week.

Information reaching IndependentSport shows that the full Zifa board would deliberate on the idea, which is still in its infancy.

The new arrangement is touted to bring commitment and accountability from board members.

Sources said the committees would look at areas such as marketing the mother body and how national teams should operate with regards to the competitions to be entered.

Currently the board has three members, Rafik Khan, Wyatt Mpofu and Remigio Makoni.

A Fifa delegation was in the country last week and said that the board should have six members.

The delegation comprised head of associations Vincent Monnier, the international body’s development officer for Southern Africa Ashford Mamelodi, and Cosafa president and Fifa executive committee member Ismail Bhamjee.

The roadmap announced at the end of the tour included among other things the drafting of the new constitution and the holding of elections from the grass roots to the national mother body.
