Chivhu FC withdraws Complaint



CHIKOMBA – Chivhu Football Club (FC) has withdrawn its complaint of having 12 points deducted after ‘winning’ the ZIFA Eastern Region Division 2 last season.
The club says that it is now pointless to pursue the matter as the Division 1 league is about to kick off and all clubs have paid their affiliation fees.
Chivhu FC is merely demanding to be reimbursed expenses it incurred in playing the four unaffiliated clubs in the letter dated March 19, 2024.
“As a club we feel let down by the delay in hearing our matter. Hearing it now will not give us our Championship, justice delayed is justice denied. Therefore, we wish to withdraw our complaint. However in your response to our complaint dated 24/11/23, you expressed your willingness to reimburse our costs incurred in fulfilling our matches vs Kotwa, Orangeview, Calvary, and Auto-Beatrice,” reads part of the letter.
Club chairperson Marufu Madhuveko told The Mirror that they decided to withdraw their complaint after writing several letters but to no avail. ZIFA did not respond to any compliant submitted by the club.
“We decided to withdraw our case having realized that the Provincial board running our league took five months to arrange for the hearing given that the division one league teams had already paid their affiliation fees and the number of teams to play there already confirmed therefore this shows that the football administration is just a joke. However we are pursuing a refund of the expenses incurred when we played the unaffiliated teams,” said Madhuveko.
Chivhu FC lost first place to Rusununguko FC after ZIFA deducted 12 points for playing Orange View, Auto Beatrice, Kotwa United, and St Lucy that were not affiliated.
