HARARE - Zimbabwe's football association yesterday fired its chief executive amid an investigation into alleged match-fixing that implicates a string of top players, coaches and administrators.
Current Zimbabwe international players admitted in sworn statements that they intentionally lost games in 2008 and 2009 on the instructions of members of betting syndicates. In some cases the syndicate representatives were present at matches, and even gave instructions in the Zimbabwe team's dressing room at halftime to ensure results were fixed, the players said.
Zimbabwe Football Association chief executive Henrietta Rushwaya (pic) was fired for poor administration but Ralph Maganga, a lawyer for Zifa, said match-fixing charges against her relating to the team's Asian tour late last year had been withdrawn pending further investigation. - courtesy of Sowetan.
