The Zimbabwean camp had been engulfed in chaos all week with issues to do with accommodation, allowances and appearance fees sparking a dispute. 

ZIFA and the Warriors squad then negotiated and reached an agreement resulting in players agreeing to leave for West Africa on Sunday.

Zimbabwe will now be bracing up for a friendly against Cameroon and their Group B opener against Algeria next Sunday.
