Felton Kamambo has been elected new Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) president.

The administrator beat incumbent, Philip Chiyangwa, in the national football motherbody’s elections held in Harare over the weekend.

Kamambo amassed 35 to Chiyangwa’s 24, the latter withdrew his candidature just before a re-run was about to be conducted.

Chiyangwa's incumbent vice-president Omega Sibanda also lost to Gift Banda by 22-37.

Kamambo made it known that he will deliver on his pre-election promises when speaking on the Chronicle.

“The honeymoon is over, the election period is over now and we need to deliver what we were promising during our campaigns,” Kamambo said.

“I am challenging myself and the entire team which has been elected into office to put the foot on the pedal.

“I am glad I have worked with some of the members elected into the board in the past. That will work for the best of our football," he added.

“The board is made from heaven. I have no doubt the board will deliver. We have to make our mark, work hard for the development of football in the country.

'What we can promise the country is that we have not forgotten what we promised in the run-up to the elections," he said.

“Just check our manifesto, we are going to deliver exactly what we said”.
