Power struggle in Zim football 21/06/04
The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) council have passed a vote of no-confidence on the new Zifa chairman Rafiq Khan and his executive committee just seven months after they took-over the helm of Zimbabwean football.

The Zifa council has appointed an interim executive led by Leonard Nkala, and if the move does go ahead he will become the association's fifth chairman in a space of 18 months.

Khan was blamed for the resignation of the national team coach Sunday Marimo, who tendered his resignation letter just a week before the Zimbabwe national team was to host Algeria in a World Cup qualifier.

One of the council members Bennedict Moyo, who chaired the meeting said, "The board has failed to honour the constitution in not holding an annual general meeting by March." 

"They haven't come to us for approval of their budget, and some workers have lost their jobs without our consultation.

"When the board snubbed the meeting it was the last straw, and the 30 councilors at the meeting all agreed that the board should go because they have failed in their duty." he added.

But Khan has refused to step down and he has called the council's decision "unconstitutional and stupid" and he went on to represent Zifa on Sunday's match against Algeria where the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
