ZIFA Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Jonathan Mashingaidze, says they have tightened the team’s security by putting in place a surveillance system which will monitor the activities of players and the team management when in camp.

The measures come on the backdrop of match fixing activities that hit Zimbabwean football after local media last year unearthed match fixing scams involving betting syndicates in the Asian trips embarked on by the Warriors.

Football experts have lamented the damage inflicted by such trips on the rankings of the Warriors which include jeopardising the chances of Zimbabwean players making it to more competitive European leagues.

The measures are expected to come into effect when the Warriors travel to Sudan for the African Nations Championships set to begin on the 4th of next month.
