TFF suspends officials
Tanzania Football Federation has suspended its accountant Daniel Msangi who is clouded by allegations of involvement in counterfeit premiership match tickets.
Msangi’s case is at the hands of the Temeke district magistrate.
Beside the TFF, former Mainland league champions Yping Africans have also take similar steps to suspend its accountant Godfrey Mwenje, who is also involved in the same allegations.
TFF’s secretary general Fredrick Mwakalebela, said Msangi has been served with the suspension letter notice on Wednesday until further notice while the case is still in progress.
Msangi was supposed to hand over the office to a new staff who would be doing his job while out serving the suspension.
Yanga’s chairman Imani Madega, said Mwenje who was arrested at the club house yesterday afternoon, he has also been served with suspension letter.
Madega said the suspension would provide room for smooth running of the investigation leading into the allegations.
The Yanga chairman said his club has been highly shocked by the eruption of the counterfeit premiership match tickets scandal that has rocked revenue of the clubs for long spells.
The scandal came into being during the match involving Moro United and Young Africans at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam last week.
” Our stance in this allegations are clear black and white and we stand to provide cooperation in the war against revenue pilferage”, said Madega.
He was thankful to the Police force for establishing a way to uproot the alleged revenue swindlers.
