Steans’ e-mail to Chiyangwa

Mr ZIFA president

Forgive my intrusion on this Saturday morning. My name is Terry Steans. I am now an independent sports anti-corruption consultant and a former FIFA Global investigations coordinator for the FIFA security department.

I feel that I should appraise you of my involvement with Ms Rushwaya and her attempt to uncover match fixing and expose Wilson Raj Perumal.

What her motive for undertaking this mission was,only she can tell you that.

Quite simply she asked me for advice back in December 2015. I gave her my advice and she made the decision on her own to go along with the suspected match fixers who had contacted her.

She told me that she wanted to try to uncover what they were going to do. She took that responsibility.

She kept me appraised of her investigation at intervals through January and February but at no time did I work with her undercover or attend any meetings with her or the suspects.

I have attached a statement for you that I drafted today.

I know ZIFA has gone through hard times in recent years and the man responsible for that was once again at large and attempting to fix and corrupt not only Zimbabwe football but also South Africa and the Olympic football competition.

Henrietta Rushwaya’s attempt may not have been well planned or thought out but it has revealed information that will alert all footballing and Olympic authorities to the threat that is Wilson Raj Perumal and his gang.

Best Regards

Terry Steans

    Two set questions come up that HR should answer.
    1. How authentic is this email? Did it really originate from Steans himself or from a bogus Steans? Steans as a professional private investigator was this the best procedural advise he gave HR to follow; Circumventing ZIFA, police or the Sports Commission? If the email truly originated from Steans what makes us believe that he is still genuinely after corruption busting in soccer and that he has not jumped over the fence?

    2. How does HR expect us to believe her considering the fact that she herself is a ### of the same crime ? What gave her the audacity to embark on the risky investigation? What was her intended benefit? How did she intend to bring out the results of her “investigations”? Wasn’t she going to black mail the gang and receive corrupt money for holding such information?

    My own conclusion is either she was involved in the match fixing scandal (shiri ine muririro wayo hairegi) or she wanted to black mail the gang and enrich herself in the process.

    Why isn’t this report signed by the author? The biggest problem with this case is the ‘trial by media’ currently happening. It brings suspicion to the journalists involved and Chiyangwa himself. Why do details like these appear in the press first instead of court? Chiyangwa is grandstanding and jeopardising this case, if indeed there is a case, by playing this all out in the media. Are the journalists covering this behaving in an ethical way? I think not. They are trying and sentencing the alleged perpetrators themselves. This is not the way to do it IF there even is a case.
