March 1 – FIFA’s flurry of sanctions against African footballing figures has continued, this time with a Mozambique federation official thrown out for 15 years for accepting bribes.
Sidio Jose Mugadza, who is currently media spokesman for the Mozambican Football Association, is the third African official banned this week.
Life bans were imposed on a referee from Tanzania and an official from Zambia for taking bribes linked to match-fixing.
FIFA says Mugadza was also fined CHF 3,000.
Details of the case were not specified, though Mugadza was prosecuted using the FIFA code of ethics in force from 2009-12.
