This comes in the wake of concerns by some quarters who have been querying the independence of the committee.

 
Dube also downplayed calls for another committee to be put in place, putting his full weight behind the investigating team headed by Ndumiso Gumede to produce conclusive results, in what would culminate in culprits being brought to book.

 “I think it would be unprofessional to talk of finding another investigating team because I am confident the committee we put in place will get to the bottom of what really happened. The SRC has told us to move with speed so we can only wait for the investigating committee to bring the matter to a conclusion,” said Dube.

The warriors’ unsanctioned trip to Malaysia at the end of last year has been the centre of attention with the Sports and Recreation Commission calling on the local football governing body to move with speed in getting to the bottom of the alleged match-fixing allegations.

Players, ZIFA’s Chief Executive Officer Henrietta Rushwaya, as well as Competitions and Programmes Officer, Jonathan Musavengana have all been linked to the scandal which played a role in Zimbabwe sliding down the FIFA world rankings.

The warriors are ranked a lowly 110 in the world a position that was aided by heavy 3-0 and 6-0 losses to Thailand and Syria respectively.
