Match-fixing: Zifa lifts ban on Kasinauyo, Gorowa

Spread This News

THE Zimbabwe Football Association has lifted the bans imposed on retired footballer Edzai Kasinauyo and former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Ian Gorowa for their alleged involvement in match fixing.
Kasinauyo was slapped with a 10-year sanction last year for his suspected connection to a cartel that was attempting to fix the 2017 AFCON qualifier between The Warriors and Swaziland in March last year.
Ex-Moroka Swallows boss Gorowa was implicated in the same scandal that was brought to the fore by an individual named Leeroy Waguta.
However, with the case having since fallen at the courts after the judge dismissed the evidence as questionable, ZIFA have followed suit by lifting the ban on Kasinauyo along with several other officials that had been banned.
The lifting of the ban – which is with immediate effect – was announced by Phillip Chiyangwa, the ZIFA president on Friday.
At the time of his axing Kasinauyo had been the mother body’s board member and was then banned without appearing before any disciplinary hearing.
Adressing journalists in Bualwayo Friday Chiyangwa also said Highlanders boss, Dumiso Gumede was alo now cleared. 
Gumede was suspended last year by the ZIFA executive committee after he wrote a damming letter to FIFA accusing ZIFA of mismanagement.Advertisement
