World football governing body, FIFA, has banned a former president of the South African Football Association, Kirsten Nematandani, for five years in connection with a match-fixing scandal involving the country’s national team.

A previous Fifa investigation found ‘compelling evidence’ that four South Africa friendlies prior to the World Cup on home soil had been fixed.

Fifa found Nematandani, who headed up the South African FA, SAFA, from twenty-zero-nine to twenty-thirteen, guilty of failing to report suspected corruption and for being uncooperative during the investigation.

He was one of three Africans to be sanctioned yesterday, along with former Zimbabwe FA official, Jonathan Musavengana and ex-Togo coach, Bana Tchanile.

Musavengana and Tchanile received life bans for bribery and corruption relating to the international friendlies in South Africa.
