Former ZIFA chief executive Henrietta Rushwaya, who faces bribery charges for allegedly organising the Limpopogate match fixing scandal with accomplices and attempting to bribe Zimbabwe national soccer team players to lose games against Swaziland in February, has been granted $100 bail.

She was arrested yesterday.

As part of her bail conditions, Rushwaya (49) was ordered to report once a week at CID Serious Frauds, not to interfere with state witnesses and to reside at her given address when she appeared before Harare magistrate Mr Tendai Mahwe.

Allegations are that between January and February this year Rushwaya, working in cahoots with Edzai Kasinauyo,Ian Gorowa and Nation Dube, was involved in acts of soccer match fixing targeting South African Premier Soccer League.

The court heard that Rushwaya, together with Leeroy Kundishora Waguta who turned out to be a whistle blower, was working in connivance with Chan Sankran, a well-known Asian match fixer who was the financier.
