Zimbabwe's CBZ And Sports Writers Association Clash Over Sports Person Award


A row has erupted between the Commercial Bank of Zimbabwe, sponsors of the Premier Soccer League, and the Sports Writers Association Of Zimbabwe, over the selection of the soccer stars of the year.

The Sports Writers Association is opposed to CBZ's plans to give the power of selecting award winners to coaches and players, instead of the association, which has traditionally selected the winners.
