The football fraternity is bracing up for yet another tense election season in which ZIFA president Phillip Chiyangwa is set to make a dramatic u-turn on the length of his tenure at the helm of Zimbabwean football.

The election mood has already descended on the football fraternity with indications Chiyangwa may run for re-election.

When he was elected into office on 5 December 2015, Chiyangwa had declared he would not vie for re-election.

Two years down the line, it appears that declaration was lost along the way as provincial chairpersons gathered in the capital on Wednesday pledging their support for the current ZIFA boss.

The ZIFA constitution is clear that elections should start at district level, before transcending to the provinces making the provincial chairpersons endorsement of Chiyangwa as their candidate premature as their own fate is also yet to be decided. 

At the last elections, Chiyangwa won a race which included Trevor Carelse Juul, Leslie Gwindi and James Takavada.

Trevor Juul is reportedly again interested in vying for the top ZIFA post as 2018 ZIFA elections loom.

Another of the resolutions passed at the meeting held by provincial chairpersons pertained to the convening of an EGM so as to discuss matters raised in a report which has fingered some top officials as part of a cartel that was for many years allegedly involved in fraudulent activities at the local football governing body.
