One of the major actors in the recent Match fixing scandal that has rocked the Zimbabwe National team Ian Gorowa has gone into hiding in the midst of the storm.
Gorowa is currently coach for struggling South Africa First Division side Moroka Swallows and has already missed 3 consecutive matches since the match fixing scandal started.
His Assistant coach Goodman Mazibuko and goalkeeper coach Greg Etafia has been taking charge of the games.
However, Gorowa’s club still insists he is still the man in charge and will only offer a statement if and only if the allegations have been concluded to a real case.
Swallows sit at the bottom of the National First Division log.
Speaking to South African publication, Kick Off, Sipho Xulu, the Swallows general manager, confirmed Gorowa’s situation.
“He [Gorowa] is still a member of the club. Things have to be done as per agreement. There will be an announcement soon regarding the way forward about the status of the club though I cannot attach a time as to when that announcement will be made,” said Xulu.
Gorowa has been singled out as one of the top players in the latest Match fixing scandal and is believed to be responsible for the distribution of money to the players who would have agreed to the deal.
ZIFA Board member Edzai Kasinauyo has already been suspended by ZIFA over the scandal. Meanwhile South African football officials and their Zimbabwean counterparts are set to meet in Cape Town today to discuss the match fixing scandal.
The meeting is also set to be attended by law enforcement agents and Ministers of Sports for both countries.
