Bad news for banned trio



The Zimbabwe trio of Sunday Chidzambwa, Method Mwanjali and Thomas Sweswe could see their careers come to an abrupt end after the announcement by Zifa that their bans for life will not be reduced.

Despite that, the Zifa board reduced other bans in the Asiagate scandal to suspended sentences of just fines, but the trio, with 15 others, will have to serve their life bans for their involvement in the Asiagate match fixing scandals.

As these people face life on the sidelines of football, stars like Nyasha Mushekwi (1 year), Lionel Mtizwa (3 years), Johannes Ngodzo (1 year), Tafadzwa Rusike (1 year) and Washington Arubi (1 year) can breathe a huge sigh of relief after they had their suspensions replaced with fines.

Other officials to serve life bans include former ZIFA CEO Henrietta Rushwaya and there are those banned for 10 years including former CAPS United coach Taurai Mangwiro, Monomotapa officials Clayton Munemo and Bhekitemba Ndlovu and former Warriors striker Zenzo Moyo.

Former Zimbabwe caretaker coach Joey Antipas (5 years) and former manager Ernest Sibanda (5 years) had their bans wholly suspended.

But there will be no reprieve for former Warriors coach Luke Masomere (2 years); former Under 20 coach Methembe Ndlovu (2 years) and former national team coach Norman Mapeza (6 months) after their bans were upheld by the Zifa board.
