Nip new wave of match-fixing in the bud
EDITOR — The continued hovering of traits of match-fixing over Zimbabwe football of late is cause for concern, with the latest one being that of Bulawayo City Football Club’s technical team.
Let me first commend the owners of the team for the professional, prompt and zero tolerance stance towards match-fixing allegations. We know a suspect is considered innocent until proven guilty by a competent court of law but why always Zimbabwe football madoda?
On a broader and wider spectrum, do those involved consider the repercussions? Do those involved consider the negative impact the country suffers? This is the reason why we cry foul that our referees are being shunned on the continental and world stage.
Food for thought! Match-fixing and corruption are from the same stable.
We know the scourge is cancerous, therefore it calls for stiffer penalties in order to deter would-be offenders.
Once more, thank you Bulawayo City’s badala for the stance taken so far. I hope others learn from you. Twalumba, taboka, siyabonga, zikomo, tatenda, show the way Bulawayo City. TM, Hwange
