Zifa make final Asiagate pronouncements

Zimbabwe FA (Zifa) make final Asiagate pronouncements

Posted: 27 November 2012 Time: 3:37 pm

The Zimbabwe FA (Zifa) has released the full list of Asiagate suspensions and fines, and details of the new national technical team.

The list, which was announced about an hour ago, includes all 70 players, officials and coaches banned or fined in the match-fixing scandal.

The three types of ban include wholly suspended sentences; wholly suspended sentences with a fine; and effective bans. The sentences are in effect from the date of the pronouncement.

Today's list excludes the 15 players and officials handed lifetime bans by Zifa in October, which included former Black Leopards coach Sunday Chidzambga, Thomas Sweswe (Bidvest Wits) and Method Mwanjali (Mamelodi Sundowns).

Nyasha Mushekwi (Sundowns) has been handed a wholly suspended ban, as has Washington Arubi (University of Pretoria).

Lionel Mtizwa (University of Pretoria) has been given a wholly suspended ban but must pay a fine of US$7,000 by December 31.

One-year suspended bans also go to AmaZulu's Ramson Zhuwawo ($3000 fine), Moroka Swallows' Gilbert Mapemba ($2000) and Ajax Cape Town's Tafadzwa Rusike ($2000).

Players and officials have until November 30 to appeal.

"[Those] who want to appeal against the decision of the Zifa Independent Disciplinary Ad Hoc Committee may do so by filing their notices of appeal and paying the appeal fee of US$ 6000 through the Secretariat by no later than Thursday November 30, 2012," Zifa's statement reads.

New Zimbawe technical team

Zifa has also resolved to appoint an interim technical team for the Zimbabwe national team, tasked with the rebuilding of the team, "following the dismantling of the Warriors after the failed 2013 African Cup of Nations Campaign".

Current Zifa technical advisor Klaus Pagels will head up the interim technical team, and is tasked with recommending assistants and technical staff, as well as preparing a new squad for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

Zifa appointed the German coach as they needed a "highly qualified coach in the shortest possible timeframe", but added that they are on the look-out for a local coach to lead the team in the long term.

The new technical team will be unveiled at a "special function" in mid December.
