“I can’t do it on my own” – Chiyangwa

I NEED help!

Showboating Zifa and Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (Cosafa) president Philip Chiyangwaa��s razzmataz ways in both associations are yet to begin.

One of those moves is to have an executive personal assistant who will have one salary contributed towards by both associations.

a�?I need a personal assistant at Zifa. The same person will assume a similar role at Cosafa where Ia��m also the president. He or she will be paid by both Zifa and Cosafa. We need an astute person who knows how to handle the media,a�? said Chiyangwa.

Chiyangwa was elected Cosafa president unopposed at the organisationa��s Annual General Meeting at Sun City, South Africa in December last year to take over from Suketu Patel, who elected not to stand after completing two terms in office.

Frans Mbidi of Namibia serves as Cosafa vice-president.

On Thursday, Chiyangwa held his belated 58th birthday and ascendancy to the Cosafa presidency celebrations. The celebrations were expected to be graced by Fifa president Gianni Infantino.

The build-up to the celebrations shook the Caf leadership which claimed they were meant to destabilise the African football governing body ahead of its elective annual general meeting set to take place in Ethiopia next month.

Cosafa has already declared its support for Madagascar FA president Ahmand Ahmad, who is challenging the long serving Issa Hayatou of Cameroon.
