FIFA impose life bans on former football officials

Kirsten Nematandani was head of South Africa's Football Association from 2009 to 2013.

Two former football officials from Africa have been handed life bans from the sport by FIFA's ethics committee, while Kirsten Nematandani, the former president of the South African Football Association, has been given a five-year ban.

Former Zimbabwe Football Association official Jonathan Musavengana and ex-Togo coach Banna Tchanile have been barred from all football-related activity at national and international level in relation to a number of international friendly matches played in South Africa in 2010.

Additionally, Nematandani was handed down a ban for the next five years.

A statement on Thursday from the world governing body's adjudicatory chamber, chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert, said: "Mr Nematandani was found guilty of having violated art. 13 (General rules of conduct), art. 15 (Loyalty) and art. 18 (Duty of disclosure, cooperation and reporting) of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE) and was sanctioned with a ban from taking part in any football-related activities for five years.

"Furthermore, the adjudicatory chamber decided that Mr Musavengana and Mr Tchanile had both infringed art. 13 and art. 21 (Bribery and corruption) of the FCE and imposed a life ban on the two former officials."
