Benjani Mwaruwari Withdraws From Race Because Of Zifa Age Restrictions

FORMER Warriors captain Benjani Mwaruwari has backed down on his Zifa presidency and has since opted for the deputy post.

Mwaruwari (38) had indicated his willingness to contest the biggest job in Zimbabwean football, but it has emerged he is ineligible for the Zifa presidency because of the age limit.

According to the Zifa constitution, aspiring presidential candidates should be at least 40 years old.

He will battle it out with three other heavyweights – ex-FC Platinum president Nathan Shoko, former Zifa vice-president and Bulawayo businessman Omega Sibanda and Jabulani Nkomo, son of the late former Vice-President of Zimbabwe, John Nkomo.
