Zifa president Phillip Chiyangwa has ruled that top Highlanders officials, Ndumiso Gumede and Peter Dube remain suspened from football till next year's congress.

Chiyangwa said Advocate Lewis Uriri, Philani Ncube and Jerry Sibanda are also in the same boat.

In a statement on Friday, Chiyangwa said four teams will be promoted to the top flight league with two dropping to division One.

Below is the statement :

The Zimbabwe Football Association Executive Committee hereby informs the football fraternity and the nation that TWO teams will be relegated from the Premier soccer league in the just ended season and FOUR teams will be promoted into the top-flight league for the 2017 season.

The ZIFA Executive Committee has also appointed Mr Kenny Mubaiwa as the Acting Chairperson of the Premier soccer league and he is authorised to represent Premier soccer league clubs as their Chief.

Advocate Lewis Uriri remains suspended from all football activities after he rejected the association's kind gesture to lift his suspension. Peter Dube, Ndumiso Gumede, Philani Ncube and Jerry Sibanda also remain suspended until the next ZIFA congress.

Dr Phillip Chiyangwa

ZIFA President
