“ZIFA has for many years been run poorly and along political lines. I am happy that the current president is trying his best to clean it up,” Coltart said at the weekend.
“It is important that the organisation is run apolitically. Until that is addressed, it will be difficult to get financial backing and improve the game.”
Administrators linked to Zanu (PF) have over the years been blamed for ineptly running ZIFA. Leo Mugabe, a nephew to President Mugabe, beleaguered former Chief Executive, Henrietta Rushwaya, Rafiq Khan and Themba Mliswa, are former officials with links to Zanu (PF).
