The Zifa Referee’s Committee have suspended match official Bongani Gadzikwa, following his poor decision that denied Highlanders what appeared to be a legitimate goal in a Castle Lager Premiership match at Rufaro on Sunday.
Highlanders were left fuming after they lost the match 3-2 when Gadzikwa had ruled Edmore Muzanenhamo’s effort for offside in the 80th minute. Referee Norman Matemera had indicated for a goal but the assistant referee who has a much greater say in offside decisions had his flag up although television replays showed otherwise. ZRC vice chairman Wilfred Mukuna on Monday confirmed that Gahadzikwa has been suspended indefinitely from getting any appointments.
“He has been suspended, pending some investigations,” said Mukuna. Mukuna said he could not shed more light now because the matter has to be dealt with in a professional and efficient manner. Bosso deserved a point for their efforts but were denied by the controversial officiating by Gadzikwa. Ronald Chitiyo scored a brace while Qadr Amin added the other goal for Dynamos as Knox Mutizwa scored twice for the Bulawayo giants.
