Report by Supersport

The BidVest Wits defender said that he did not want to say much at the moment because Zifa had not been talking to the players directly.

He told Supersport.com that what he was doing was concentrating on his game at his club for the time being.

“I am not worried. There is nothing to worry about. I also just hear from the media about the ban. I don’t want to talk much because they can use that against me. What I am doing now is playing my game and my lawyer will deal with the other issues in Zimbabwe,” Sweswe said.

Sweswe, together with Mamelodi Sundowns defender Method Mwanjali and former Black Leopards coach Sunday Chidzambwa, have been banned from all football activities for life by Zifa in the Asiagate scandal which rocked the country.

Zifa has, however, given all banned players and officials the chance to appeal their punishments if they are not happy.

The Appeal Committee will be responsible for hearing these cases. So far only two people have confirmed their appeals by paying the $6 000 fee.


  1. seems the players were tried in the media & werent given the chance to defend themselves….appears ZIFA z a triggerhappy association who dont sit down with the accussed to hear their side of the story first & liaise with FIFA for guidelines…Juventus players had a worse scandal but no player was banned for life– jus fines & relegation.

  2. who was never involved in clandestine dealings between 2000 and 2009? ITS UNFORTUNATE THOSE BOYS WERE CAUGHT, IF NOT SOLD OUT

  3. the sellouts went scot free. the players were tried in the press and were banned in the press so they are not banned in the field, even FIFA cannot endorse such a fallacy.
