The Zimbabwean Football Association (ZIFA) has notified the public of the decision of its Executive Committee to suspend and ban Vice President Gift Banda from taking part in any football activities with immediate effect.

ZIFA accuse Banda of widespread abuse of power including, misleading the public and stakeholders during unauthorized press conferences on a decision to fire national team coaches thereby causing disaffection on the Board and chaos in the National Team.

The suspension is effective until the next ZIFA Congress where it is expected to be ratified. The Association may however institute further disciplinary proceedings before Congress to further press serious charges against the Vice President.
