- Phillip Chiyangwa.
Zifa president Phillip Chiyangwa has strongly disputed reports that he had been summoned to Egypt to answer charges of ‘insulting’ CAF head Issa Hayatou ahead of the continental football body’s elections scheduled for March 16.
Chiyangwa told journalists before his departure for Cairo Thursday that he had been invited by the Egyptian football association to discuss possible co-operation between the two countries’ soccer bodies.
Chiyangwa said the widely-publicized report about disciplinary action was fictitious and blamed football analyst and Harare City FC secretary Hope Chizuzu for circulating it.
Chiyangwa claimed to have banned Chizuzu from football matters in Zimbabwe and said he had informed Harare City of the decision.
