“No Hint Of Corruption In Zimbabwe-DRC Match,” CAF Says. No Investigation Being Held

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) said on Friday, 6 July that there’s no hint of any corruption that took place regarding the Zimbabwe-DRC match, and that it’s not carrying out an investigation on the matter.

CAF General Secretary, Mouad Hajji, was asked during a press conference about media reports suggesting that there was a case of match-fixing. Hajji said it has not received any complaint from the ZIFA.

Said Hajji:

At the level of the CAF, there is no suspicion. There is no hint of corruption about the Zimbabwe-DRC match in the third Group A match played on June 30, in Cairo.

But if it turned out that there was anything, and not only for this match, I remind you that our policy is a zero tolerance policy on corruption. As of today, there is no correspondence or issue.

In its official address during the press conference, CAF had ignored the controversy surrounding allegations of match-fixing on the Zimbabwe- DRC match.
