Life ban for Musavengana

HARARE - Former Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) programmes officer Jonathan Musavengana has been banned for life by Fifa due to his involvement in match-fixing activities.

Former Togo national football team coach Banna Tchanile also received a life ban while former South Africa Football Association president Kirsten Nematandani was handed a five-year ban.

“The three cases decided related to international friendly matches played in South Africa in 2010, as well as to cases decided by the adjudicatory chamber in October 2015 and March 2016,” Fifa said in statement yesterday.

“The investigations, initiated in September 2015,...and the final reports were passed to the adjudicatory chamber on August 17, 2016.

“In this regard...Nematandani was found guilty...was sanctioned with a ban from taking part in any football-related activities for five years.

“Furthermore, the adjudicatory chamber decided that...Musavengana and...Tchanile had both infringed art. 13 and art. 21 (Bribery and corruption) of the FCE and imposed a life ban on the two former officials.”
