Zimbabwe players delay Africa Cup flight over pay.

Zimbabwe’s national football team has refused to board a flight for the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon in a dispute over allowances and winning bonuses.

The team were due to fly together on Saturday to Cameroon to play a friendly on Tuesday before proceeding to Libreville.

However, after tense meetings with the Zimbabwe Football Association ZIFA, some players finally left Harare on Sunday morning while the rest of the squad were set to depart later in the day.

On Friday, players sat in hotel corridors and refused to attend a farewell dinner at which the country’s Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa was guest of honour.

Meanwhile, Last year the country was expelled from the twenty-eighteen World Cup preliminary competition over non-payment of a sixty-seven thousand dollars debt owed to former coach Jose Claudinei Georgini.
