Zanzibar — THE Zanzibar Football Association (ZFA) has formed a seven-man constitutional amendments committee. The committee, to be led by ZFA lawyer Abdallah Juma, was formed during ZFA's executive committee meeting held last Thursday.
ZFA's vice-president Alhaj Haji Ameir said here the committee has principally been tasked with overseeing the review of the isles football governing body's constitution. Other members include Suleiman Mahmoud Jabir, Suleiman Abdalla, Hafidh Muhidini, Masoud Attai, Hafidh Ali Twahir and Ali Amour.
Ameir said the committee will be responsible for potential amendments to the constitution. "We have realized that our constitution has many weaknesses that frustrate efforts to develop Zanzibar football," he noted.
Meanwhile, the second phase of the Zanzibar top flight league has been scheduled to kick off on Friday, with league leaders KMKM taking on Mafunzo at the Amaan Stadium while Chipukizi will be against Super Falcon.

According to the league fixture released by ZFA, Bandari will square up with beleaguered former champions Malindi, who currently sit second bottom with seven points.
