Dr Chiyangwa remains COSAFA president

THE Council of Southern African Football Associations says Dr Phillip Chiyangwa remains president of the organisation despite relinquishing his position with the Zimbabwe Football Association.

After numerous media enquiries, COSAFA has assured member associations that there is nothing in the organisation’s constitution that states the president must also hold office with their home football association.

COSAFA stated that Dr Chiyangwa will therefore remain COSAFA president until the next elections at least, with these scheduled to take place in 2021.

It stated that a precedent was set for this with the previous incumbent, Suketu Patel, who remained COSAFA president after his tenure at the Seychelles Football Federation had ended.
