Asiagate report now with the printers

The Zimbabwe Football Association has announced that the long awaited Asiagate report is now with the printers and will be made public in the next few days.


Zifa President, Cuthbert Dube, said on Thursday: “I know we have said this so many times and at some point we promised you that the report would be released in 30 days, but I can tell you today that the report has been completed and is currently being printer.”

The report is expected to give a detailed insight into what actually transpired during the Warriors numerous trips to Asia where the players were reportedly paid huge sums of money to throw away matches in favour of an Asian betting syndicate.

It also contains recommendations on what course of action would be taken against those found guilty.

The report was compiled after investigations by a four-member Zifa investigating committee which submitted its findings to the Ethics Committee headed by Justice Ahmed Ebrahim which Dube says has completed its task.

Although the Warriors technical crew has already named a 24-member provisional team for the final Nations Cup qualifier against Angola, the release of the report could force some changes in the team if some of the players currently on suspension are pardoned.

At least 90 players were suspended from the national team over suspected participation in match fixing activities in different Asian countries while representing the Warriors.

Although some have been pardoned, the likes of Edward Sadomba and Nyasha Mushekwi who could bring a difference to the Warriors play are still on suspension.

Players found guilty face a life-ban from soccer.
