Zifa form appeal committee

With many quarters of the banned officials and players in the Asiagate scandal wanting to appeal the sentences handed down by the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa), the football body has formed an appeals committee which will look into these appeals.

The committee will be made of three people in soccer administrator Chris Mbanga and two Advocates, Sillas Chekera and Thabani Mpofu.

The people who would want to appeal are reportedly expected to pay a fee of as much as US $6 000 per person as they look to reverse the punishment handed out by the football governing body in the country.

Zifa Vice president Ndumiso Gumede said that they want things to be done in the football way, hence the formation of the appeals committee.

There have already been other officials and players who have gone the legal route, but Gumede believes that the formation of the committee will allow people to go through the proper channel.

“Yes there is that committee, but I am not quite sure when it will start working. We will hear everything on Saturday when I go back to Harare. But yes because people want to appeal the sentences handed to them we will give them that chance through this committee,” Gumede said.
