13 banned for life in Zimbabwe match-fixing scandal

Posted: 17 October 2012 Time: 09:11

Thirteen Zimbabwean players and officials have been handed life bans from all football activities for their role in the Asiagate match-fixing scandal. 

According to a report released by a committee probing the allegations, a further seven were banned for 10 years each, while 37 received five-year bans. Additionally, 25 players were banned for two years, while six were banned for one year.

Eight players were cleared, bringing the total number of cleared players to 48.

While the report did not reveal the identity of the players or officials affected, Zifa are set to announce the names as soon as they have liaised with world football governing body Fifa.

The number of South African-based Zimbabwean players that will be affected by the bans are also still unclear.

Zimbabwean judge Ahmed Ebrahim, chairman of the Asiagate investigating committee, said: “Some of the players whose suspensions were lifted may well find themselves being re-suspended in the future.”

Among the South African-based Zimbabwean players that were being investigated before the announcement of the bans are the likes of Nyasha Mushekwi, Method Mwanjali and Thomas Sweswe.

Mateu Rusike was signed while he is implicated so the logic behind releasing Sweswe cannot be this saga

You did well by bringing the story to us as events are unfolding. Those like Nebo who feel they need to get the full story must wait to read it on the Sunday Times. Big up to you.

One life lesson about this story is this: there is no honour in clandestine activities. Such activities compromise your integrity & you being when least expected, and the scars of damage usually last lifetime.

Now Me Editor, tell us what Jali had for breakfast!

UP THE BUCS!

Sanza the Dreadlock rasta, i pray you are not the 1, because that 1 had sense, i liked his analysis on sports matters(Yfm). I mean KC for sure called these players in and questioned them on this issue. Surely they measured the players responses and did their conclusions..

I knew a Zebra must be part of the list (whether he left for Wits it's immaterial because he was once a zebra). I am not surprise because in that club it starts from above to be involved in such criminal, unlawfull acts.

Where is Bobby now?
