Players pay Asiagate fines

Some players who were suspended but were told to pay fines for their involvement in the ‘Asiagate’ match-fixing scandal have done so to the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa).

Some of the notable names that have paid their fines are the South African based duo of Moroka Swallows ace Gilbert Mapemba and Ajax Cape Town’s Tafadzwa Rusike.

Teams like CAPS United and FC Platinum have also helped pay for their players as they want them to continue playing. CAPS have paid for four players and FC Platinum have paid the highest amount of US$15 000 for seven players.

Mapemba and Rusike paid US$2 000 each and now they are free to continue playing without suspension.

ZIFA CEO Jonathan Mashangaize could neither deny nor confirm the payment of these fines by some officials and players.

“We don’t want to be talking about these fine payments right now as everyone knows what they are supposed to do,” Mashangaize said.

“They know the deadline for fines and appeals and they know what consequences will follow if they don’t pay their appeal fees or their fines,” he added.
