Rushwaya trial postponed

HARARE - The trial of former Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) chief executive Henrietta Rushwaya, who is facing nine counts of corruptly concealing a transaction from her principal, has been postponed to September 23.

The trial was supposed to open on Wednesday but was postponed to Thursday by magistrate Esthere Chivasa after stand-in defence attorney Dumisani Mtombeni applied for a postponement of the trial to the last week of October because his senior partner, Jonathan Samkange was away in Namibia.

The charges against Rushwaya emanate from allegations that she masterminded a series of fixed matches that involved Zimbabwe’s national team in the Far East between 2007 and 2009. - Sports Writer
