THE Zifa 2018 election saga took a dramatic twist yesterday when the police brought in the association’s president Felton Kamambo for questioning over bribery allegations.
Kamambo brew a huge shocker when he won the election ahead of the then incumbent Philip Chiyangwa.
However, it has been alleged that he bribed a number of Zifa councillors to vote for him in the run-up to the polls.
National Police spokesperson Paul Nyathi told the Daily News that the law enforcement agents had brought in the Zifa president yesterday.
“We confirm that Felton Kamambo was at Central Police Station today (yesterday) being interviewed and questioned about several cases pertaining to Zifa transactions. I will not divulge finer details regarding the case as investigations are still underway,” Nyathi said.
Last month, an internal police memo leaked to the media revealed that Kamambo was wanted by police in connection with 28 charges of bribery relating to the 2018 Zifa election.
Earlier last month, the police had cleared Kamambo following another bribery allegation which was reported by his chief election agent Robert Matoka.
Matoka claimed that Kamambo used unorthodox means, including bribing the electorate, to win the December 2018 Zifa elections.
Zifa and Kamambo have been in the news for all the wrong reasons ever since that election in 2018.
