The Confederation of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) on Saturday announced the suspension of NFA Secretary-General, Barry Rukoro, for violent conduct after allegedly assaulting COSAFA president, Philip Chiyangwa, in South Africa last month.
It is stated in a COSAFA letter to Rukoro that his suspension is for a period of 90 days, pending the finalisation of the case.
Rukoro is also urged to submit his representations to the Secretary-General of COSAFA, in writing, on or before 30 April 2018 and explain reasons as to why his case may not be referred to the COSAFA Disciplinary Board for appropriate action to be taken against him.
At home Rukoro has not been spared at all after the announcement by his NFA boss, Frans Mbindi, that his contract will not be extended after it lapses on 31 March.
It remains to be seen whether Rukoro, who has insisted that only the NFA Executive Committee can remove him from power at a congress, will be reporting for work on Tuesday after the Easter weekend or not.
The NFA Congress is slated for September this year.
