ZIM­BABWE Women’s Foot­ball in­terim v i c e - chai rpe r son Ce­cilia Gambe lived to fight an­other day af­ter her hear­ing was post­poned to a later date by the Zifa ad hoc dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee chaired by the as­so­ci­a­tion’s vice-pres­i­dent Omega Sibanda.

The Mutare-based vet­eran ad­min­is­tra­tor was charged by Zifa for bring­ing the game of foot­ball and the as­so­ci­a­tion into dis­re­pute af­ter she stormed the Sakubva Sta­dium pitch dur­ing a Mutare City Rovers and How Mine Cas­tle Lager Premier Soccer League clash on May 8.

The con­tro­ver­sial Gambe man­han­dled the ref­eree and pointed a mid­dle fin­ger at the hap­less of­fi­cial. Her ac­tions cost Mutare City Rovers a $2 000 fine un­der the PSL’s rules and reg­u­la­tions Or­der 31.

“We needed some doc­u­ments which were not availed to us. We then post­poned the mat­ter to a later date which shall be an­nounced soon,” said Sibanda.

It is be­lieved the com­mit­tee, made up of re­gional chair­per­sons and one le­gal brain, wanted the ref­eree’s, match com­mis­sioner and po­lice re­ports.

Gambe is not new to con­tro­versy fol­low­ing her shock­ing out­burst ahead of the Zifa elec­tions last year when she claimed the Sports and Recre­ation Com­mis­sion had en­dorsed the then pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Philip Chiyangwa.

This was af­ter the prop­erty mogul had do­nated $10 000 to the Mighty War­riors as part of their prepa­ra­tions for the Rio Olympics. — @skhu­moyo2000
