Fifa Development Officer in-charge of Eastern and Southern Africa, Ashford Mamelodi, has said the FIFA delegates coming to inquire what went wrong at the postponed TFF general election will make sure that justice is done to all candidates.
Mamelodi arrived in the country to monitor the suspended TFF general election which was earlier planned for today.
“The delegates will come next month to investigate what went wrong and they will make sure that justice is done to everybody as far as FIFA regulations and rules are concerned,” Mamelodi said in Dar es Salaam, noting that the work of FIFA is to see that national federations conduct their polls peacefully.
The Bostwana national who was accompanied by his assistant Patrick Onyango said that TFF meeting delegates were the ones to decide who leads the body, not FIFA.
One of the candidates appealed to TFF after being axed in the race by the body’s election committee.
The appeals committee led by Idd Mtiginjola disqualified Jamal Malinzi, Michael Wambura and others from the race on grounds that they do not meet the required criteria to stand for the post. Malinzi was vying for the presidency while Wambura was running for vice president.
The committee asserted that Malinzi lacks five years experience in soccer leadership. Wambura was disqualified because he once took Simba SC officials to court, contrary to the FIFA constitution.
