Sources at Zimbabwe Soccer governing body Zifa have told Chronicle Sport that Warriors coach Calisto Pasuwa was relieved of his duties because of his relationship with player intermediary Gibson Mahachi who allegedly has 16 players from his stable in the Chan squad.
Pasuwa is under the famed Mahachi stable, which is a violation of standing Fifa Code of Ethics, especially Articles 1, 2 and 19.
“The guys are accusing him of among other things, dramatizing problems in the association, holding the nation and the association at ransom but most importantly of his relationship with Mahachi,” said the source this morning.
Of the 16 players in his stable, six are allegedly set to go for trials or be taken on board by South African sides in January making them ineligible to go to the Chan finals.
“These boys who are going to SA are only in camp to keep them fit. Remember they are also getting daily allowances while in camp yet they will not even go to Rwanda for the finals,” said the source.
Zifa acting president Omega Sibanda is expected to address a press conference at 2PM this afternoon.
