Zifa appraise Fifa on suspensions


Zifa has officially informed world football governing body Fifa of its decision to suspend three board members accused of allegedly taking part in the Asiagate match fixing scam.

Vice-president (technical) Kenny Marange, board member development Methembe Ndlovu and Northern Region chairman Solomon Mugavazi were suspended during last Friday’s board meeting.

Zifa chief executive officer Jonathan Mashingaidze said the national association would then move to form the ethics committee on Tuesday which will be followed by appearance before the committee of players and officials named in the second report.
Zifa president Cuthbert Dube is expected to commission the committee on Tuesday.

“Chris Eaton (Fifa head of security) will meet the ethics committee when they come in later this month because we want progress and finality to this matter. We have thus informed the Sports and Recreation Commission, the Zimbabwe Olympic Committee, the Zifa Assembly, all board members, Cosafa, the Confederation of African Football and Fifa,” Mashingaidze said.
