ALL is set for Thursday’s Zifa elections with former Warriors striker Benjani Mwaruwari opting to stand for the post of vice-president.

While Harare businessman Philip Chiyangwa has been on the forefront in campaigning for Zifa presidency, there were no other candidates who openly declared interest for the top post.

Nominations close on Thursday morning just before the polls.

However, the election’s interest has been spruced up by the emergence of Mwaruwari who had initially intended to go for the post of Zifa president.

But age restrictions blocked the 38-year-old former Manchester City forward from gunning for the big post which has an age limit of 40-year-old.

“I cannot say much at the moment but I feel football needs people with the game at heart. I have witnessed a lot during my time in Europe and we need to make our football a big industry,” Mwaruwari said.

“I am a Zimbabwean and I have always been ready to serve my country. I think I played my part as a player and now I can do a lot as an administrator. If elected I will play my part to develop football in this country.”

Names like Ian Gorowa, Edzai Kasinauyo, Pardington Japajapa, James Takavada, Trevor Carelse-Juul, Omega Sibanda and Jabulani Nkomo have been tossed around for possible contention for any post.
