Asiagate fines stack up



As the officials and players continue to pay fines and appeal money for the Asiagate scandal, the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) have collected close to US$35 000.

Some players have honoured their fines with the help of their current clubs, while others have paid out of their own pockets.

With the deadline on December 31 having expired, the coffers of Zifa were given a boost in a time of serious financial strain.

Players like Gilbert Mapemba and Tafadzwa Rusike have paid their respective fines, and teams such as FC Platinum and CAPS United, have also contributed to the pot. Platinum were the highest paying team, with seven of their players shelling out a combined total just short of US$15000.

Jonathan Mashangaize, the chief executive officer of Zifa, could not be drawn to comment on the exact amount of money they have received.

“We are dealing with players and teams and it would be very difficult to say how much we have received from everyone as they are still paying and the amounts also differ from one player to the other. But yes, some have paid but others haven’t paid and risk serving the intended suspensions if they don’t follow the procedures laid down by the governing body,” warned Mashangaize.
