WARRIORS' supporters and the world at large were stunned this week after Tuesday's newspapers reported another episode of match-fixing allegations. If this trend of soiling players continues, then what it means is that we will not have any player left by the end of the year.
It is imperative that the country's supreme football governing body, Zifa, and the so-called third force that they are always talking about, resolves their differences for the benefit of our football.
It has been long since we qualified for the bi-annual continental showpiece, the Africa Cup of Nations, let alone the World Cup, whose waters we are yet to navigate.
First and foremost, Zifa should put their house in order before they start accusing players and the so-called third force for sabotaging their efforts.
The Warriors' busy schedule saw them staying in camp for 24 days and it included the days they were in camp for the past two matches.
The players have gone through hard times for the past three weeks they have been in camp, which has had a bearing on their performance.
The upheavals began with the Warriors' final preparations for the Mozambique tie receiving a double whammy after they were locked out of the stadium.
As if this was not enough, the association failed to buy air tickets for the boys to travel to Mozambique on time, which saw them spending the whole day sitting at the airport doing absolutely nothing.
Diamond mining company, Mbada Diamonds finally came to their rescue and bought the tickets to Mozambique at the last minute.
After all these boobs, Zifa wants us to believe that they are doing their job well while blaming the players and even accusing them of match-fixing. I'm of a firm belief that Zifa are shifting blame. Someone is not doing his or her job properly. A poor builder will always blame his tools.
To make matters worse, Zifa rushes to inform Fifa about the alleged match-fixing which has a bearing on the careers of the mentioned players. The players in question will obviously be affected by the allegations.
Zifa should have taken time to investigate the issue. I am aware how hard they are trying to get that needed financial assistance from Fifa, but Zifa should not sacrifice the players that they are supposed to be protecting at the expense of money.
What is surprising is Zifa have not stopped one of the players implicated in the alleged "fixing" from playing in today's match against Burundi. Is he not going to "fix" this match? So who is fooling who?
It's high time Zifa and former Zifa chief executive officer Henrietta Rushwaya, who they accused of masterminding the alleged "fixing", swallow their pride, come together and iron out all their differences for the good of the game.
Rushwaya said she has the keys to the Kentaro saga, which is making Zifa sweat. The football governing body will not get the Fifa grant which they are supposed to get if they lose the Kentaro court case.
Let's stop this blame game madness for the good of the game.
