The suspended Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) president Felton Kamambo, and board member for finance Philimon Machana, have been arrested, News Central has gathered.
The duo were apprehended by officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) today, for defying the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) act, which was applied in their suspension on November 16, 2021.
Last year, for several offences, among which is, failure to account for public funds, the SRC suspended the Kamambo-led administration.
The commission acted in accordance with section 30 of the SRC Act.
A defiant Kamambo continued to issue statements in the capacity of ZIFA president and even went on to suspend members of the football governing body’s secretariat, moves which resulted in the SRC involving the police leading to the duo’s arrest.
Kamambo and Machana are being held at Highlands Police Station and will be charged to court on Monday.
