Kasinauyo application thrown out

HARARE - The High Court has thrown out Edzai Kasinauyo’s urgent chamber application to have Zifa avail his legal team with evidence in the ongoing match-fixing scandal.

Kasinauyo, a Zifa board member for development, was suspended last month together with ex-Zifa CEO Henrietta Rushwaya and Warriors assistant coach Nation Dube for their involvement in the plot to fix Zimbabwe’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Swaziland.

After his suspension early last month, Kasinauyo had approached the High Court seeking to have Zifa avail the alleged match-fixing evidence within 24 hours.

The former Warriors midfielder also wanted the courts to bar Zifa from associating, alleging and or accusing him of the match- fixing allegations in any forum whatsoever should they fail to produce the evidence.

High Court Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo, however, ruled that the matter was not urgent yesterday.

The ruling comes as another huge blow to Kasinauyo, who was on Wednesday provisionally expelled by Zifa for taking a football matter to court.

“He (Kasinauyo) is now finished. His post is vacant. We will now go to congress with this,” Zifa president Philip Chiyangwa said on Wednesday.

“Even if the congress says they still want him in football; I’m going to fight with them in congress and I’ll have my day.

“If I succeed, then the congress will themselves nominate the candidate they want to fill the vacancy; that’s the procedure.

“Even if the High Court rules in his favour, we will not accept decisions made in court. He will not come back to Zifa.

“Our judiciary and the executive are all government and government must not interfere with football; please take note of that.

“Any interference by government means we will all get into trouble with Fifa. Our football will sink.”
