ZIMBABWE Football Association (Zifa) President and Zanu PF loyalist Philip Chiyangwa has scorned those opposed to his intended return to active national politics as he inadvertently revealed plans of one-day seeking to become FIFA president.
Chiyangwa, who is also Cosafa president, defiantly dismissed the comments saying he was not the only politician in the world who was running the popular sport.
But ndiri serious panyaya yehuMP, uko ndakabata Zifa neCosafa; ha, nditori vice president weCAF, ndotongosiya ndaita FIFA president. (I am serious about being MP. I am in charge of Zifa and Cosafa president same time; I am also Caf vice president. I will only leave politics when I become FIFA president),’ said Chiyangwa during a light-hearted chat with Sports Minister Makhosini Hlongwane just before the two had a joint press conference in Harare last Thursday.
The controversial property tycoon said he had no problems about being placed on record regarding his political and FIFA ambitions.
