ZIFA did not state the reasons for the postponement.

Instead of returning all the way to Masvingo after the match they stayed at Hwange Lodge for three days and travelled to Bulawayo on Tuesday, only to learn that the match had been cancelled.
“We extended our stay in Hwange by booking at Hwange Lodge…We are unhappy about the last minute cancellation, because if we had been informed before hand we were not going to incur the over $300 million loss in accommodation bills,” said secretary Nathan Asidi. “We are very disappointed about the whole development, but we have decided not to take any action against ZIFA.”
Ernest Sibanda, the Highlanders chairman, said his team did not incur any losses. – CAJ News.
