Asiagate: Unofficial Latest Banned List
An unofficial list of the latest bans handed out by ZIFA to players and officials it says were complicit in the Asiagate scandal has been leaked.
Already 15 names have been put on the life ban list including former CEO Henrietta Rushwaya and former national coach Sunday Chidzambwa.
Now various bans have been handed to players and officials with former national coach Norman Mapeza to get off the lightest with a six-month ban.
A few premier league teams will obviously be affected with CAPS United Coach Taurai Mangwiro who has just turned the team around getting a ten-year suspension. Joey Antipas and Luke Masomere (who last week dreamt of Emmanuel Makandiwa telling him about the teams that would be in the Mbada Diamonds Cup final) are among premier soccer league coaches affected.
ZIFA President Cuthbert Dube’s administration must be given some kudos for taking a strong stand on this matter though we are pretty sure that the bigger fish will have escaped punishment, for now.
The bans are a start.
They are as follows:
