The Sports and Received Commission (SRC) has suspended Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) Chief Executive Joseph Mamutse from any activity related to the game.

Prince Mupazvino, the commission’s Director General, was also suspended.

The move by the SRC is meant to enable a probe into how national teams; the senior men, the Mighty Warriors and U-17s, were according the sports regulatory body, given green light to travel outside the country in the Covid-19 domain.

This week, the Commission barred the national U-20 team from traveling to South Africa for the Cosafa tournament citing failure by ZIFA to inform them of the trip 30 days before departure, for the team to be cleared as per Covid-19 guidelines.

The fact that the Warriors were allowed to travel to Algiers earlier this month for an AFCON qualifier and the same procedure was not followed might indicate a questionable green-light given by someone at the commission, which is why there ought to be an investigation.-Soccer 24
