FORMER Zifa chief executive Henrietta Rushwaya who was arrested on match-fixing charges was yesterday granted bail.
She appeared in court on charges of concealing transactions from her principals, fraud and bribery emanating from soccer matches the senior national football team played in Asia.
Rushwaya is facing 11 counts of concealing transactions from a principal, two counts of fraud and 15 others of bribery involving US$1 million.
The former Zifa boss was granted US$500 bail with the consent of the Attorney-General’s Office.
She was ordered to report to the police once every fortnight and to surrender her passport to the Clerk of Court pending finalisation of the matter.
According to a report released by the Zimbabwe Football Association Rushwaya who was fired last year, received “huge payouts” from betting syndicates after the Zimbabwe National Soccer team toured Asia between 2007 and 2009 and as a result a total of 15 matches were fixed.
