Seven pay Asiagate appeal fines



Seven individuals, who were banned for life for their involvement in the ‘Asiagate’ match fixing scandal, have paid US$6 000 to launch an appeal.

The seven want their respective cases to be heard by the Special Appeals Committee (SPC), which is comprised of administrator Chris Mbanga and advocates Thabani Mpofu and Sillas Chekera.

According to the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa), the seven that have paid the appeal fees are: Method Mwanjali, Thomas Sweswe, Sunday Chidzambwa, Taurayi Mangwiro, Luke Masomore, Guthrie Zhokinyi and former Herald editor Robson Sharuko.

Jonathan Mashangaize, the chief executive officer of Zifa, however, said the seven will have to pay a further US$300 to be provided with documents detailing their charges, which they need to study before making a formal presentation to the SPC.

“We have received appeal fees from the seven people and now it will be up to the committee to set the date for cases to be held,” said Mashangaize.

“What they are supposed to do now is get the documents they need to study them before they can present their case to the Special Appeals Committee but soon it will start,” he added.
