Judgment in the case in which former Zifa chief executive Henrietta Rushwaya is facing charges of corruptly concealing transactions from a principal has been deferred to May 20. Prosecutor Mr Sidom

Chinzete asked the court to defer the judgment date following the absence of the presiding magistrate Ms Estere Chivasa.

Ms Chivasa was supposed to deliver the judgment on Thursday but was reported to be off duty. Rushwaya, who is represented by Mr Charles Chinyama of Chinyama and Partners, appeared before Chitungwiza magistrate Mr Kudakwashe Jarabini.

In her application, Rushwaya wants her matter to be referred to the Supreme Court arguing that she was arrested by ZAAC without the assistance of the police in direct contravention of the powers bestowed upon the commission in Section 108 of the country's Constitution. Rushwaya also argues that her arrest by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission was an infringement on her constitutional rights.

The charges emanate from soccer matches that the senior national soccer team played in Asia.  She is alleged to have arranged trips for the national soccer team to Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Oman, Jordan, Bulgaria, China, Thailand and Yemen between 2007 and 2010 without permission from her superiors.

She also argued that her arrest by ZAAC without the assistance of the police was in direct contravention of the powers bestowed upon the commission in Section 108 of the country's Constitution.
