Zim women in doubt for tourney 17/08/04
Zimbabwe's national female side could miss the African Women's Championship because of the financial mess the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) is in.

The tournament will be held in South Africa in September and the Zimbabwe women football yesterday launched an ambitious fundraising campaign to raise funds for the Mighty Warriors.

With ZIFA paralyzed by a power struggle which has left the soccer authorities in that country unable to secure sponsorship of any kind, it was left to the women of the country to come to the rescue of the Mighty Warriors who are ranked third on the continent after Nigeria and South Africa.

The chairperson of the six-member all-female committee which is spearheading the fundraising.

Shuvai Mahofa said, "You all know about the state of affairs at ZIFA at the moment. It would be in the best interests of all soccer loving Zimbabweans to stay clear of that mess and concentrate on this noble cause."

The Mighty Warriors are in Group A which comprise of the host nation South Africa, Ghana and Ethiopia.

Nigeria, Algeria, Cameroon and Mali are in Group B of the eight-team tournament which will kick-off on the 18th of September.
