Philip Chiyangwa's led Zifa has suspended CAPS United board member Lewis Uriri for allegedly convening an unsanctioned meeting.

This comes a week after Chiyangwa banned Highlanders chief executive officer Ndumiso Gumede from football and suspended Highlanders chairman Peter Dube.

However, PSL has since resolved to approach to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to bar ZIFA from interfering in the day to day running of PSL.

A statement from Zifa read:

Uriri breached provisions of Article 13 (a) and 31 (i) of the ZIFA constitution by convening an unsanctioned meeting of Premier Soccer League clubs on 29 October 2016.

At the same meeting held at Rainbow Towers, Uriri incited PSL clubs' representatives to defy a decision on promotion and relegation passed by the ZIFA congress earlier on the same day.

Uriri also breached Article 17 (2) of the ZIFA constitution by urging PSL Clubs to act against a decision passed by the ZIFA congress.

In that vein, Uriri has to immediately relinquish all roles associated with association football in Zimbabwe until the next ZIFA congress.
