Duo takes Zifa to high Court



Former CEO Henrietta Rushwaya and former Zimbabwe national team coach Sunday Chidzambwa have been banned for life by Zifa for their involvement in the Asiagate scandal.

However, the two, just like other players, are not taking their punishment lying down as they have taken the case to the High Court of Zimbabwe with the aim of reversing the Ethics Committee findings which led to the ruling by Zifa.

They are not the first to go the legal route to reverse the punishment, as former Warriors coach Norman Mapenza went to the Arbitrator where he was cleared – however Zifa is not using that.

Contacted for comment, former Black Leopards coach Chidzambwa said he will only talk about the matter when he is in Zimbabwe.

“I can’t talk right now but when time is right I will talk in Zimbabwe,” Chidzambwa said.

Asked about the two taking the case to High Court, Zifa vice president Ndumiso Gumede said he could not comment as he was not in Harare.

“As we speak I am in my rural home and I will only be able to have the right response when I am in Harare on Saturday,” Gumede said.
