THE Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) has completed its probe into the affairs of Tennis Zimbabwe (TZ) director-general Elias Musangeya said this week.

“The report was presented to the SRC board on 23 March but it is still under internal consideration before it is made public,” Musangeya said.


A three-member team was commissioned by SRC last year to look into the affairs of TZ. The team was reporting to the SRC.


While Musangeya could not be drawn into revealing the contents of the report, insiders said this week it dwelt on the handling of funds by TZ under the previous administration of Paul Chingoka.


Now at the helm of the Zimbabwe Olympic Committee (ZOC), Chingoka left TZ last year after 13 years with the association.


TZ has been under severe attack from players for failing to undertake a professional policy that caters for the welfare of players.


In a local weekly this week Zimbabwe’s third-ranked player Genius Chidzikwe opened a can of worms bemoaning the state of affairs at the once thriving institution.


There have been allegations that players who had participated in the Davis Cup had not been getting their bonuses.


This had impacted on the morale of players and inevitably on the results.

Once a force to reckon with in the Davis Cup, Zimbabwe’s performance has been in free fall.


From the World Group in 2000, Zimbabwe now have to content themselves with play-offs to qualify for the Euro African Zone Group 1.


Zimbabwe play Israel at the City Sports Centre later this month in a relegation play-off.


A depleted team to Serbia -Montenegro received a 5-0 drubbing.
