Zimbabwe Cricket bans fan for violating anti-corruption code

ZIMBABWE Cricket (ZC) has banned a fan from all cricket activities for five years after he unsuccessfully tried to influence a Zimbabwe international player to get involved in a spot-fixing deal.

Edward Walter Mupangano, a 27-year-old cricket fan from Harare, who in the past also had playing trials with a local club, received the sanction after he approached Luke Jongwe on 4 August 2022 and sought to introduce him to an Indian bookmaker who allegedly wanted the player to bowl in a pre-arranged manner during an international match in return for a payment amounting to US$7 000.

The facilitator himself would allegedly receive US$3 000 if the planned corrupt activity was successful.

Jongwe immediately reported the approach.

Following an investigation, Mupangano accepted a charge of violating the ZC Anti-Corruption Code for being allegedly party to an effort to fix or contrive or otherwise influence improperly the result, progress, conduct or other aspects of a cricket match.

As a result of his admission, ZC banned him for five years from all ZC-affiliated cricket venues and/or events.
