The man who was part of the official Zimbabwe Gems’ delegation and has vanished in the UK has been named as Philip Masimba.

Philip is the younger brother of Zimbabwe Netball Association (Zina) organising secretary Alex.

“The guy has disappeared from our base and is nowhere to be found. He was actually a surprise delegate here as he is not even an executive member of the Zimbabwe Netball Association.

“He only came to the tournament because he is the younger brother to one of the Zina officials. It turns out he just wanted to get a United Kingdom visa using netball and Zina officials knew that. A report has been made to the police,” a source told the Chronicle.

The Gems are returning home today.
